Your eyes slowly adjust to the gloom but immediately start to sting. Dust and plaster has fallen down from the ceiling, and you taste it in your dry mouth. Slowly the ceiling lights flicker on as the emergency generator starts up, and people begin to pick themselves up... ...Its August 9th. You've just survived the biggest killer of man in history. In 30 minutes, 3.6 billion people have died across the globe. Unknown to you, the population of the UK has quartered, and will continue to drop. You think briefly of your family before being dragged onto your feet by your platoon sergeant... "Come on son, there's work to be done!" Comes the gruff voice from the dark... but not yet... for now we wait... in the dark...

1985 mod's long awaited beta is now in sight. Plus screenshots of British infantry ingame.

Posted by Hendrix on Sep 8th, 2008

Well, progress has been flowing well since our recent transaction back over to the HL2 engine, and we predict an internal MP beta within 6 weeks, and then an external one 6 weeks after that. Our website has had a complete overhaul as have our forums so please feel free to take a look.

For now however, i bring you two screenshots of British infantry ingame.

Nice work! I'll look forward to 12 weeks from now! :)

Only thing i have to say?

Brilliant models, and map, but the only problem is, the hair is a tad too short - try and have them with a bit more hair maybe... =P

Still, i love it. Look forward to seeing this released.
