The open world nature of the game enables you to use a multitude of approaches to help the front line move – it's up to you to shape your role. Experience the complete arc starting as a private hardening into a high ranking officer with a squad under command, arming yourself with a variety of weapons and vehicles on your way to glory!

As said a few weeks ago RWR 0.93 was coming in a few weeks and now it's indeed here! Most of the crucial changes were covered that time, go check it out if you're eager for a refresher. A cleaned up and probably incomplete change log can be seen here.

Beta 0.93

On other news, my Mac mini has finally arrived, so completing (read: starting) the Mac port gets closer every day. We're also preparing a new demo, so if any of you, the beta-testers, stumble on any crashes or critical launch issues, would be gold for us to know about it. We of course know each and every other bug the game has, so we'll process the other bug reports a bit later, obviously they are welcome too :P Just stop by at the forum and speak your mind!

Any feedback on the current state of campaign would also be highly useful for us. We've obviously played the game for a long time, and to keep the campaign challenging for us, it can become unbearable for newcomers. Campaign difficulty settings are also coming, but aren't there yet. We haven't finished balancing the campaign, far from it, and especially the maps you see in the later phases might be a bit so-so in terms of balance, depending on which route you take. Also writing (faction, map and base names, dialogue, item naming and descriptions) can be considered placeholders at this stage, that is something we will start working with with a clearer mind for the Steam Early Access.

Speaking of which, RWR Steam Early Access release should soonish follow the release of the demo, the biggest time sink being the promotional video. The last ones are starting to look dated by now so we've got to step up in that department as well.

The standalone releases for Linux, both demo and full, have been approved by Desura now, and at least browsing on Windows with Linux selected as platform at the top of the page, I can access Beta TAR.GZ 36,84mb to download the full binary release.

"Crossplay" has been enabled between Windows and Linux releases, so purchasing one will gain you access to the other.

Desura "branch" releases for Linux have not yet been approved, which is why you can't install the game in Desura client quite yet. I believe this is also the reason it's not yet in the games main menu.

Just to say it out loud, 0.76 demo and full beta builds for both Windows and Linux are still in the Desura approval queue.

Meanwhile, the new demo for both platforms is available here Modulaatio.com

That's awesome news then!

If it's not too much trouble, when you're done playing, could you send me the file data/rwr_game.log to pasi.kainiemi@modulaatio.com? I'd like to peek a little bit what is it that you're getting in the graphics capabilities department.

I couldn't get my ATI behave as well as I would've wanted, and couldn't get my hands on a Linux with NVIDIA to try how certain things are doing.

This is a great game. I've described it to friends as a combination between General Chaos, Cannon Fodder, a rather obscure but innovative game called Net War and once vehicles are added, even a touch of Warhawk. On top of all of this, the developer is great and really listens to the community.
