New ‘Evacuation’ Map And Multiple Fixes Arrive In Latest Update
Moscow, Russia – December 2, 2016 – Developer AbsolutSoft has today released update 0.9.451 for its military-themed First Person Shooter, Hired Ops, which is currently available in Steam’s Early Access program. The update includes a new map, named “Evacuation.” Situated in the Ural mountains, Evacuation is available for Deathmatch and Team Elimination modes and sets players up for intense and dynamic firefights in close- and medium-ranges combat in the remnants of an abandoned Emercom base. Evacuation, well known among Contract Wars players, is sure to be popular with those players who favor head-on assault tactics and fierce face-to-face encounters.
As part of this update, AbsolutSoft is making multiple gameplay improvements and introducing a test version of the Competitive matches and Ranking system. Now, when selecting a map, players will decide if they want to participate in a ranked or training match. In training matches, players are free to try new weapon or tactics without risking rank or equipment. In the ranked matches, however, players are risking their overall rankings, which may go up or down based on the player’s performance.

- New Map: Evacuation, available in Deathmatch and Team Elimination modes
- Fixes to matchmaking
- Fixed Hold-to-Aim issues
- New Competitive Matches and Ranking System
