Arma Xbox Update

Arma Reforger surprise launched on Xbox Series X|S earlier this month, and we've mostly enjoyed what we've played so far. This stepping stone towards Arma 4 is a platform for the developer to build on, and that work has already begun.

Patch is currently being deployed on Xbox, and here all the changes it brings to Arma Reforger:

  • Tweaked: Proper handling of a download error for a bug where there were no files to download
  • Changed: Raised the maximum connection limit in RplNet to 256 in order to match server config limits
  • Fixed: Added missing view geometry to several models

The update brings with it a little server downtime, roughly three hours if everything goes to plan. Once those three hours are up, Arma Reforger is expected to be live, with the above changes applied.
