It will also adopt a different development style, for which they coined the term “Day Zero Community”. This will involve players early in the development process where they could “test reload times and recoil patterns in a range or go for the very first PVP sessions”.

It also looks like the game will have a ranked mode at launch, with the developers confirming that “pros, players, teams, content creators” will get an overview of “design decisions, feature prioritization and balancing discussions where comments could be used.
