Posted on by justin
On October 11, 2023, developer Samar Studio released The Front as an Early Access title. Its development team continues to drop massive updates for the game, and the next update is just around the corner - The Front Patch 1.0.17! Here is everything you need to know about The Front patch 1.0.17 and its full official patch notes.

What’s in The Front Patch 1.0.17?

The Front Patch 1.0.17 The Front Patch 1.0.17 goes live on December 6, 2023, and the game’s official servers will be down from 7 to 8 AM UTC for maintenance on that date. Once it goes live, players can update their clients to this latest version and experience the new content and optimizations. One notable addition to the game from this patch is the Medical Bed. Use it to rest and recover health over time. It can also be used to recover from certain illnesses, albeit you’ll still be vulnerable during this healing period. Patch 1.0.17 for The Front also adds a Ramp and a new item called Pack Reclaimer. The Ramp has a similar function to stairs, but you can use it to help transport vehicles. On the other hand, the Pack Reclaimer lets players consume 100x Ether Shards to retrieve a lost loot bag. Two new boss vehicles are also included in this patch: Rhino and Night Owl. The former is a Level 60 Gunship, while the latter is a Main Battle Tank with the same level. This update also brings a slew of optimizations and bug fixes. For instance, the squad interface now has scroll bars. Some electrical connections that caused issues even when connected to certain technologies should now work as intended.
