DCS Open Beta Testing

As DCS World ever increases in complexity and scope, along with a continued expansion of new modules, the testing task has reached the point where we cannot expect our internal and external test teams to catch all the problems in a reasonable amount of time. As such, starting with DCS 1.2.6 we will first be releasing new DCS versions as open beta. Our team and the external testers will be closely monitoring reports and entering valid bugs into our bug tracking database. We will ask reports only be submitted for new problems that did not exist in the prior version. We sincerely hope this will improve the quality of the final version.


DCS World on Steam


Later today, DCS World and our current modules will be available on Steam with a 10% discount. These include:


  • DCS: A-10C Warthog
  • DCS: Black Shark 2
  • DCS: Combined Arms
  • DCS: P-51D Mustang
  • Su-25: DCS Flaming Cliffs

We plan to release A-10A: DCS Flaming Cliffs for Steam on 16 August 2013.


The Steam version of DCS World is unique in that all DLC purchases through it will direct users to the Steam store. As such, the updates for Steam products works a bit different. We have set up 'semi-automatic' updating for the Steam version - the updates themselves will be delivered by the Steam.


Are are working with Steam to allow modules activations purchased outside of Steam to be ported into Steam.


New Weapon Models


Today we have images of two new weapon models for DCS World. The GBU-31(V)3/B and an updated UPK-23 gun pod.
