So much has happened since we were last celebrating a major community milestone. When we hit 1,000 community members we gave each of those one custom wallpaper. So this time we decided it would only appropriate to do something similar.. and give each of the first 2,000 members three wallpapers.

We have also updated the milestone ribbon so the first 1,000 members have been promoted with two silver stars () and members who have joined us since last time will each receive the single bronze star version ().

All the rewards above are for the first 2,000 members but we aren't leaving anyone out. If you head over to the rewards page all members will find a fourth brand new wallpaper.

The team is very excited about the year ahead with some important development milestones now within sight (no that isn't a hint about a release date). Since day one there has been a long road to follow but the community's support has made the journey so much more enjoyable for everyone involved.

Multiplayer only correct. At the moment we're saying 32 but we're aiming for more - large scale testing and optimisation needs to take place before we can confirm that though.

The game is tactics and teamwork based so you can expect team-orientated gameplay with objectives for teams to focus on. The "standard" gamemode isn't Battlefield conquest but along similar lines.

Be careful when you speak at a private message with Wookienator, he usually writes at public the information taken from private messages. Words which you supposed as private, he will make public.

Will there be a class system like in red orchestra, where some classes limited to one?

Our class system does limit the number of kits issued of each type to ensure that teams are well-balanced (and not all snipers for example). Balancing isn't finished yet but we will if necessary limit some kits to just one per team.

In short: Maybe yes

OVERLORD won't feature bots as good and realistic AI is a massive job. Maybe in the future.

Sorry but there's only one answer to that..

"As long as it takes". We're working hard on the game and making good progress but it's massive job. It will be finished and released though - just not quite yet.
