The free weekend, in case you were wondering, is in aid of a huge new expansion to the game released a couple of weeks back, known as Operation: Nightfall.
Here’s a bit more info courtesy of Damoun Shabestari, Game Director from First Contact Entertainment:
It’s only been a few weeks since we launched Operation: Nightfall, which kicked off a bunch of new content and improvements planned for the game. There’s a lot we introduced with Nightfall–the Op-Pass, Hack Keys, Missions, Tasks, Rewards—all while completely revamping the user interface.
Given the scope of the changes, it was difficult to anticipate all of the growing pains, but we’re happy to report that as of Patch 1.26, squad and matchmaking issues should now be addressed. It has been a process, this buildout of a reliable and robust platform–one that will set us up for future growth, improvements, and content rollouts. We hope where we take the game from here exceeds your expectations and rewards your continued commitment.
As always, there’s more info in the last post we did on Nightfall here on the PS blog, and also over on our FCE blog. If you have more questions, feel free to comment here and we’ll read them!
Enjoy your free weekend!
