Along with the release date, 1C Game Studios released the development roadmap for 2023. Major game updates for Q2 and Q3 include a new collection of Operators, new maps and story missions as well as 3D viewers, new war scenarios and new game modes. One of the main novelties of the game will be the introduction of the Batalhão squad of the Operações Policiais Especiais (BOPE), a special unit of the military police of the State of Rio de Janeiro (PMERJ) in Brazil.
Steam listings for Caliber are now open, and the publisher has confirmed English, Spanish, and Portuguese language support.
Caliber is a third-person online multiplayer shooter based on tactical cooperation between players, each playing one of four roles played by dozens of operators. In both PVP and PVE, the key to victory in Caliber is good situational awareness and coordinated teamwork between all players.
There are 68 playable Operators in Caliber, with 17 real-world special forces units spread across 12 countries, including the US, UK, Israel, Germany, and France. Each Caliber Operator has a unique set of skills, weapons and special abilities:
- Assault – The fastest unit, able to flank the enemy to get behind their lines.
- Sniper – Provides cover and eliminates targets at long range.
- Medic – Heals and revives allies and is effective in close and medium range combat.
- Support – Heavily armed Operator with high HP and Armor. The main purpose of support is to divert the enemy’s attention and interrupt their attacks.
