Well Happy New Year to everyone!

Its been a while since our last news post so what better time for an update than the end of the year. We have had some challenges the past few months, both personal and professional, so development of Ground Branch has gone slower than we had hoped or planned for. However, we want to make it very clear that development is still going on and we are as committed as ever to the project and keeping development more consistent in 2018 and beyond! Here are a few things being worked on……

1018 is finally here!

July 31, 2017

Go to Steam to get the latest update of Ground Branch.

We continue to improve the overall usability and player experience with Ground Branch. Online stability has been greatly improved as we are now starting to refine the gamemode systems that will allow us to polish up existing gamemodes and more rapidly introduce new ones to try. As with the previous public build, the overall Ground Branch experience continues to improve greatly.

1017 Ground Branch update is ready!

May 19, 2017

Go to Steam to get the latest update of Ground Branch.


The main focus of this release is stability and performance and therefore a lot of “under the hood” non visual work has been done. While still a work in progress, the online experience has gotten some much needed love and is now much more stable and reliable. Overall performance increases have been achieved with the move to Unreal Engine 4.15.2 combined with reworking some core game systems. Still lots of work to do in these areas, but the current Ground Branch gaming experience feels much better than previous builds.

Holiday build available!

December 21, 2016

A new build of Ground Branch is now available!


While we have been spending a lot of effort on making sure Ground Branch is stable and performs well before heading into the final push for Early Access, there are a few connectivity issues with this build. We really wanted to get them sorted before putting a new build out, but given family time over Christmas and some personal challenges some of us are currently facing (Please see previous news post), we decided to put one out now instead of holding off any longer. With people being off work or out of school our hope is the added testing will help us work through the problem. We will also be doing a follow up build with more fixes and some new stuff that wasn’t quite ready very shortly after the new year.

Ladybug kisses

December 19, 2016

G’day guys.

I’ve been a little quiet of late due to a close personal loss.
My sister took her own life on Wednesday the 14th and as such, I’ve been helping out the family she left behind as much as possible
To that end, one of her friends setup a page to help out with funeral costs etc.
I did not wish to depress people, nor do I wish to exploit peoples feelings, but I do want to help out her family, thus I’m sharing the following link:

Ladybug kisses in memory of Ffyona.

Even if all you can do is share or comment, please do so.
Any show of support is welcome and greatly appreciated.

That’s it.

New Ground Branch build available – version 1013 build 110810

August 15, 2016

Well what can we say… its been way to long since the last public build and we apologize. There have been numerous private testing builds with the Operator Edition owners and they have provided tons of information on fixing bugs and provided suggestions on improving the game. It also made us realize that the internals of the game have reached a point where we need to refine our process a bit to better accommodate faster/cleaner iteration that allows us to get public builds out faster and with much less work on our end. We have taken care of that, but in the mean time WE HAVE A NEW BUILD!!!!!
