Yes that’s right, the Half Life 2 total conversion Iron Grip: The Oppression first Beta will be releasing this September!!
For several weeks we’ve been doing full beta testing, and the mod is almost ready to give it a go in public.
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…
