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.

I like that there is actually more than 10 guns in this title, it may just be myself but I've noticed a lot of games recently not adding many weapons. I think this type of game appeals to a lot of gamers including myself, I hope the development works out well.

We want the game to be as realistic as possible and that means a true variety of weapons rather than the 8-10 we all know well. Takes longer of course but we think it's worth the effort :)

Thanks for noticing!

Quick question, this may sound dumb but is the game kinds like Planet Side but more WW2 based WW2?

Many have said it will be similar to Battlefield 2 mod: Forgotten Hope 2, but even better realism and accuracy.

Can they make it more like Battlefield 1942, Fun? Instead of annoyingly frustrating in every way possible like Forgotten Hope 2?

I hope they don't go for either. Both are terrible generic games by now and I've been dying to have an historically accurate and somewhat realistic/tactical game for a loooonngg time.

Nope, while the RO has some realistic approaches (especially thanks to mods like Darkest Hour), RO2 failed miserable in that aspect and simply didn't incorporate proper tactical depth into the game (not to mention the historically inaccuracies). I was thinking more of something similar to OFP, Hostile Intent, SWAT or Raven Shield in terms of gamepace and team cohesion.

Reading and comprehension isn't your strong point ey? I'll repeat it for you: "I was thinking more of something similar to OFP, Hostile Intent, SWAT or Raven Shield in terms of GAMEPACE and TEAM COHESION.

Now, off to middle school boy!

guess you never played PR have you? If you got that idea from FH2, which is more of a compromise between arcadey and a simulator... (PR being the latter and BF1942 the former)
