TS Jang acknowledged that they are working on balancing the game mechanics for those who want to engage in combat and this who want to hide out and survive. To enhance the in-game experience they are working to continue to balance weapons to make them more realistic and to change how players use them. To improve on the survival mechanics, the addition of the new amphibious vehicle the BRDM which will give players a more varied level of gameplay but the ledge grab is going to allow players to get to (and hide) in places they never could before.
To enhance the out-game experience they recently added weapons mastery where players can keep track of stats and get rewarded for accomplishments. Jang wants to bring the same type of system to the survival aspect of the game, again, to ensure the combat and survival sides are balanced but also so that the survivalists can keep track of stats and also be rewarded for their accomplishments.
