The second playtest build for our upcoming Halloween release is now available.

Playtest-20141012 rounds off the new singleplayer campaign backend that was introduced in playtest-20140927, and includes a few new features of its own. Some key features selected from the full changelog include:

We encourage any map authors who are using the old Lua API to upgrade their maps during this playtest cycle. We are planning to remove the old API before the final release, and so this will be your last chance to report any bugs or missing functionality in time for us to fix them!

Improved mission dialog

The improved mission selector includes support for player-created missions and the campaign briefing videos.

Connection notification

Game servers will detect when a player causes extended periods of lag, and disconnect them from the game.

Tiberian Sun progress

Work continues on our Tiberian Sun mod, but it is still several months away from release.
