Update - April 18, 2023[edit]

Megaserver Map Queue Beta[edit]

  • Players can now add themselves to a queue to join party members in open-world maps that are currently at their maximum player capacity.
  • The queue can be reached through the party and squad UI by right-clicking on a player in your party that is within the instance you wish to join and selecting "Join Instance."
  • If that map instance is full, you will receive a new pop-up that will ask if you’d like to enter a queue for the same instance as your existing party members. Accepting this pop-up will put you into a queue, which will give you the option to travel to that map instance as soon as capacity allows. Refusing the queue will result in the same behavior as before this update.
  • This feature is an upgrade to the megaserver system, which was first introduced in April 2014. We are introducing it as a beta while we keep a close eye on live issues and monitor your feedback.


  • All players have been migrated to using DirectX 11 rendering. The DirectX 9 rendering option has been removed from the Options menu.
  • Chromium Embedded Framework has been re-enabled as a replacement to Coherent UI. This technology powers web-based UIs like the launcher and Trading Post.
