I know I know.. I'm too late but yea it's here!

Finally after all this wait, the rest of chapter 'Xen' and the complete 'Gonarch's Lair is LIVE on beta!
After several issues that encountered the team including a meltdown of one of the dev's PC's while compiling a map. The CC team was finally able to bring up the long awaited chapters of Xen to the public beta (Sadly I slept just 2 hrs before its release and that's why I'm reporting it late :\).

Included in this beta as well the new UI overhaul the team has been working on. It's ready for testing but currently it's causing massive fps drops and slowdowns according to the devs. So if you don't wanna have any issues disable the launch option from the game's settings:

Please don't forget to report any bug/issue you may encounter to the team through CC's discord server. But make sure you read this list of known issues the team has stated to stop duplicating issues.

    Simply amazing!

    But unfortunately, even I playing on the lowest graphics, my fps is so low.


    Also, the first 3 maps have been modified. I need to update the Supply Pod prefab.
