The basic idea in creating this game is to bring realistic gaming to a new level. Game goal is to carefully recreate the events of August 2008, during the brief war in Georgia. One of the main goals is to create documentary project, following historic and personal records of the aforementioned events. Game development team is dedicated to create new balance and gameplay with interesting missions and places which include unique elements of the society on which them are based.

0 comments by Aleksandar_Djokic on Sep 21st, 2013

After months of work our programmer had finally managed to work out under barrel grenade launchers.
As you know, GEM engine strictly forbade to have secondary weapon on a rifle. One rifle = one weapon. There were attempts to overcome this by having 2 rifles on a soldier, one firing grenade, one firing rifle ammunition.

We now have functional grenade launcher. Currently we have AK-74 with GP-25 which is working but planning to add even more. Principle of work is quite simple:

1. select a soldier that carries AK-74 with GP-25 (another good thing is that whole operation is not linked to a soldier but to the rifle itself so any soldier can fire it)
2. select appropriate action (grenade launcher)
3. click on a place to fire there

Or you can take direct control and click right mouse button (to load the launcher) and left mouse button (to fire it). Simple and effective. And most important thing is: as soon as you fire it you can fire assault rifle ammunition, as visible here:


We also plan on some GUI enhancements to ease up exploitation of this new feature. This will surely change multiplayer a lot, no more super squads armed with RG-6. Grenadiers are now in their true form.

Здравствуйте, я живу в России и меня немного расстраивает, что вы не обновляете информацию на форуме BW. Скажите пожалуйста есть ли ещё какие-нибудь русскоязычные сайты или форумы? Можно ли где-то прочесть интервью на русском языке?

Hi friend,

unfortunately my Russian is not best and it would be shame to write bad, not understandable, on forum so I am writing in English. However I will ask our team members who are from Russia to translate interview and then post it. Thank you for your suggestion and interest.

Can't disclose more info about that but can assure you we are testing out multiplayer settings (well, SP as well, on all difficulty modes) and can say it looks and feel pretty good/realistic. In multiplayer NSV 12.7 can cut your infantry squad in the open quite fast.

If you can, both.
CtA will be a more modernish game with a focus on enhanced gameplay, accessibility, and multiplayer(Steamworks multiplayer instead of Gamespy.. nuff said), based on a heavily upgraded GEM2 engine, with NATO nations pitted against good ol Russian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern equipment.
Five Days War will more likely be a single player focused documentary project that recreates the happenings of the 2008 South Ossetia Conflict, on an upgraded GEM2 engine, expect every weapon usable that was wielded in that conflict.
While both games are in development, and nothing is final, both of these games seem like a worthy addition to any MoW fans collection, and will likely be _much_ better than recent MoW expansion 1C managed to spew out(Vietnam and Condemned Heroes).

Not sure right now - this is still in the development stage but I do believe Steam is to be thought of as a possibility for game release (in short: we probably will). We are glad you are having interest in the game and hope our game will live up to your expectations.
