Iron Grip

Iron Grip : The Oppression has a completely new kind of gameplay, combining First Person Shooter with Real Time Strategy elements in a way never done before.

One team consists of one human player, playing a full RTS style game, building and commanding AI troops while the opposing team consisting of human FPS players only!

The new techniques provide the gamer with rising tension in a full scale city war. The beautiful fantasy architecture and other elements which colour this mod brings the player right into the Iron Grip conflict. The small cooperative aspects of the FPS team intensify the need for teamwork to an ultimate level.

Iron Grip : The Oppression is not just meant to provide new gameplay. It also gives players a small taste of what the developing Iron Grip universe is like.



Gameplay
In Iron Grip : The Oppression there are 2 teams. One is the Resistance, and the other is the Rahmos.
Rahmos contains of one main player. This player is the General of the local Rahmos forces. He starts in his HQ and commands his armies via an RTS interface. He can construct infantry and vehicles to attack the Resistance and capture their key locations. If the Resistance team grows in size, another player can join the Rahmos side.

This player also plays an RTS. However he can only command the troops which have been assigned to him by the general.

Rahmos has one General Unit which it needs to protect in order to survive. This unit can be taken over in FPS mode by the Rahmos RTS player.

The Resistance side play a pure FPS. Instead of spawning as regular troops, the Resistance players can choose a character, which they can develope throughout the game. This character is unique in weaponry as in appearance and skills and therefore can only be selected by one player. The Resistance forces earn skill points throughout the round. With these skill points they can buy new skills or revive their Hero once killed.

Their mission is to hunt down and kill the Rahmos General Unit, so anarchy will force the Rahmos City Legions to withdraw.

Rahmos on the other hand has 3 random Resistance Key Locations to secure. These are spread randomly throughout the map. If all 3 are secured by the City Legions Rahmos wins the round.

It is an exciting new cat and mouse gameplay in which the Rahmos forces outnumber the Resistance. The Rahmos vehicles are also something which the Resistance must fear. While Rahmos commands the streets, the Resistance must play smart, hide in the buildings, and work together. Don't underestimate Rahmos. Other than their large numbers they have numerous tricks up their sleeve. Guerrilla warfare is now fought...

Note: Iron Grip 1.33 now available via Crosus!

I can say that their commercial release "warlord" is very ugly on the quake engine. Oppresion on the source is much better.

Srsly, this is a great concept! I've had so much fun with my brother. But 2 in a server just isnt real fun. The devs wont start this project again cuz they went retail with the Iron Grip universe... try and google, Iron Grip: Warlords. Its not the same as this, though.. Warlords is plain coop, but this.. this is unique! I suggest someone pick up the concept and start their own mod based on this one. Cuz I really liked playing Iron Grip: Oppression, even though I only had my brother to play with me. If anyone wants to do it, I'll be happy to join the mod team as modeller(I know only the basics about coding)
