Some of the features for the first release will include:

*Unique guerilla warfare gameplay!
*Fully functional 1 RTS player versus a group of FPS players.
*Full RTS and FPS working GUI elements including minimap.
*Command and construct a selection of infantry and tanks.
*FPS players choose between 10 unique Resistance Characters.
*A variety of arms available to the Resistance Team.
*3 maps including a forest, urban and village setting.
*Iron Grip sound track and game music.
*Dynamic switching RTS-FPS for better unit control.
*Tons of custom map models, and textures.

And much more!

Iron Grip: The Oppression is aimed at smaller groups of people ranging from 2 – maximum of 11.
Recommended are battles with around 5-7 players. This because there will be mass armies of tanks and infantry pouring through the city.

After the first release, our goal is to update frequently not only with fixes, but also new game-types, units, weapon, characters, maps, items etc.

We will also be setting up game manuals and mapping guide documents soon.
That’s it for now, stay tuned since before the end of the month we will release…

On another note: we are actively searching for game servers, if you have ability to help out in this area, please email: vvg [at] isotx.com

I can't wait to playtest this mod. The flaw of Empires for HL2 is that you got a comm and a team - which can be nice if everything's working - but too often people just run by their own free will instead of letting the Comm boss them around. Here in Iron Grip this problem is resolved and there can be no more blameshifting and bad blood at the end of a round, since either the entire team played badly, or the commander made some mistakes. This is a good concept of a new style of game and I do like it alot.

Great work, fast work, too!

I played the lottery last week, but I didn't win a mod at all.

This game looks very promising. An extremely original and good idea. To be honest the only thing I'm not a fan of is the setting. It's ok and all, but I like modern warfare or historical warfar (WW2, Vietnam, ect.) settings better. I like games to have real weapons. But the idea makes this mod definetely worth checking out.

I'm with SinKing. This mod should avoid the major flaw of the other RTS/FPS mod. Who wants to play online as a pawn for a poor leader? I have high hopes for this mod. I also think the setting is original and interesting!
