Hurtworld Patch Is Now Live

Posted on March 17th, 2023 11:07 AM EST
Hi All,

Tonight we have a small quality of life and maintenance patch that should fix up a lot of the biggest issues that should keep Hurtworld stable for a long time into the future.

The largest change is the switch over to Epic Online Services (EOS) for our anticheat framework from EAC. (You will currently still see Easy Anti Cheat in the bootstrapper, this is normal and will likely have the art replaced soon)

As a side effect of moving to EOS, Hurtworld should now be supported on Steam Deck. Don't expect a perfect experience on this but it will run.

We also collected a list of criticial issues plauging servers, patching a number of exploits around build permissions and peeking through walls.

This patch will enforce a wipe across all servers.
