The goal of Resistance and Liberation is to realistically portray the events and actions taken by the 82nd Airborne during their stay in Normandy. Our initial release will follow the regiments through a campaign that mimics that followed by the men themselves. The campaign will begin with players dropping into Normandy in the early hours of June 6th, with the ultimate objective of capturing the town of Sainte-Mere-Eglise. From there subsiquent maps will include missions based on other key areas after the D-Day.

It is the first of February and that calls for a main page media update! In today's update, we have bad news and good news. Some may even say that it is "just our luck". If you can recall, Joe Lemieux left the team last July, which is when we picked up Ryan Cameron to take his place in the animation department.


The bad news:

One of our level designers, Robin "Hypno Toad" Morris, put in his resignation papers last week. In a positive note, he informed us that he would try to stick around the community and may eventually work on a new custom map to compete with his previous Omaha Beach map. Robin will surely be missed.


The good news:

As you may have already gathered, we have a replacement for Robin. In fact, we already introduced him in the January 15th RTTF. Stefan "Semmel" Klapf has done his best to pick up the slack and almost started out at a sprinting pace. In these last two weeks, he has not only fixed up Ardennes but he has started work on La Fiere.

La Fiere was originally Mike Hufnagl's map that had gone through other devs such as Toni Kreska, Stefan Bermig and eventually overhauled by Andrew Hayes. Mike had to leave, others couldn't continue work either, and progress on La Fiere stopped. Below are a couple of screen shots that Semmel gave us to show the new and improved La Fiere.






In other news, Medic1234 of the RnL forums has released a trailer to debut his new map rnl_battleofcarentan. His map is a recreation of the city of Carentan based on the show Band of Brothers. The trailer does a great job of incorporating media from Band of Brothers into video of his map. Below is Medic1234's Battle of Carentan trailer, "The Breaking Point".



That is all we have to show for this update, but stick around until February 15th for the next Road to the Future. See you in two weeks!

Nice update, and the video was a really good representation of that scene, I give him mad props. One of the best scenes in the movie, along with the Battle of the Bulge.
