Patch Notes: Patch 3.1.0

Patch 3.1.0 has been released today and with it some free (and some not so free) PVE content.

As far as the free content goes, Karax is now an available commander and the new co-op map Lock and Load has been released.

On the not so free side, the Nova covert ops missions are now available for pre-purchase and are expected to release spring 2016.

Other changes to the patch include a ton of updates to the chat system and some changes to the editor. You can read the full notes below:
