Pick up your rifle and join the Green or Grey army in their mission to send the enemy home in a box! RUNNING WITH RIFLES is an open world, top-down, tactical shooter for single player and multiplayer online, that puts you right in the middle of chaos in towns, trenches and forests turned into ruthless battlefields, controlling just one soldier in an army of several hundreds. In a war where men die like flies and endless streams of reinforcements run to fill the void, it takes tactics and marksmanship to capture territories effectively. 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.

Anyone else notice that the Green team has a hell of a time winning. No matter which side I play as the Green team gets MURDERED, unless I play Green and rip it up, which isnt always the case. Anyways just wondering if anyone else seems to experience the same one sided battles as I do. Great Game though!!

Finally some vehicle damage models :)
Also good to see that the apc and armored Truck aren't made of paper anymore as you can now drive through the enemy lines without being too much scared to get killed with one hit. I like that! :D

Lag depends highly on which server you play on. The current 2 official 24/7 servers are located in Finland and US East Coast, I happen to get 14ms to the first and 140ms to the second. To me 140ms seems highly enjoyable, vehicle steering starts to be rather clunky at that point, but better just pick another seat and let someone else do the driving :)

At times, there are also a few dedicated servers in US West Coast, i'm getting over 200ms lag there which starts to affect the way to play the game, e.g. you need to shoot in front of others to make actual hits. While it definitely isn't out of question to play with over 200ms lag, it's certainly not ideal.

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.
