Here are two more videos showing off our new weapons which will be included in our next release. This time we're showcasing the Northern Faction shotgun pistol which holds two shells at a time and packs a powerful punch. The second weapon is the Northern Faction scout rifle which is now bolt operated. The bolt action is operated after each shot and serves as a crucial indicator for when the next round can be fired. These videos were taken in the map Slaughtered (created by Hellion) which has received improvements from its previous version in the form of HDR and other graphical enhancements.

Visit our home page to see the videos for these two weapons.

No, we hadn't given up on aircraft. The flight dynamics are all coded and have been tested with multiple people. The art is not complete yet, however.

I really can't wait for the next update.

Are there any plans to update building and vechiles in the future?

If we managed to get more artists, then yes. Otherwise, we're going to be focusing our time on finishing up the aircraft and possibly naval units.

Awesome, what i'm intrested in most is better weapons, more buildings and veichles, aircraft and NAVAL UNITS would be awesome. Can't wait for the next patch hopefully a lot more people start playing once it's released, exspecially if you sort out the lag. Also better graphics would be fantastic.

naval units? jeez thats incredible.
The aircraft will be excellent, I almost thought you guys had given up on them.

Will there be server options to limit construction types? some maps I'd imagine being better with or without certain types of unit.
