Codemasters 'IGI 2: Covert Strike' Current Beta Test Status
Work on the single player section of the game continues at pace, at this stage we're concentrating on bug fixing and game balancing but its still great to see the new features added every once in a while. Recent changes to the game engine have allowed for a much better looking and more dynamic water system. As well improved reflections and lighting the water now reacts to gunfire and explosions - see the screenshot for a preview of the new water system.
Current beta test status:
With our extra development time, we're now estimating that the start of phase 2 is early December.
Phase one has lasted much longer than we first intended it to, this has helped to get all of the major issues out of the way and the game has progressed significantly during the time.
Phase = 1
Number of Testers = 212
Map = Forrestraid
Number of Major Issues = Low - None
Number of Medium Issues = Medium
Number of Minor Issues = Medium - High
As well as finding and fixing bugs we are also currently working on:
- Improving dedicated server functionality
- Perfecting the maps
- Weapon balancing
