Squad 3.0 Update Launches Amphibious Assault With New Playable Faction, Map, and Game Features Squad’s latest free update launches today bringing amphibious assault vehicles, a brand new massive map, music, and an additional faction, the marine forces, to Offworld Industries’ 50 versus 50 multiplayer shooter.
Today, Offworld Industries releases Amphibious Assault, the latest free update for their large-scale combined arms multiplayer first-person shooter, Squad. With a new faction, map, music, and game features, Amphibious Assault is the largest update released yet for the rapidly growing community of Squad players.
In this new update, marines forces join the fight as a new player faction, lending their legendary expertise with amphibious combined arms tactics and vehicles. Players using this new faction will have access to seven new vehicles and five new weapons, creating an entirely new range of tactics for Squad players to use and defend against.
Squad’s new map, Black Coast, which is set on the windy coastal hills of the Black Sea, highlights new amphibious gameplay with attackers launching their assault from a massive oceanbound aircraft carrier to secure beachhead forward operating bases. Amphibious Assault also adds a new amphibious-focused training ground map and updates five current Squad maps to use the new gameplay feature. The newly added feature completely changes how Squad players engage with previously unpassable terrain, changing the defensive and offensive strategies of experienced Squad players. As part of the update, a selection of vehicles from other factions have also been upgraded with amphibious capabilities.
To round out the update, Squad players will be hearing a brand new track and see in-game environmental features like mud accumulating on uniforms, to deepen immersion in this team-based tactical experience.
To celebrate this new update, Squad is discounted by 33% in the Steam Summer Sale. Squad is currently available for PC on Steam.
