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.

Welcome to April 1st. Spring is in full swing and we a have a lot of news to cover today. We hope you are as excited about this update as we are. To move from worst news to best news, we will start with the loss of a developer.

Sadly, Eero was kicked off the team after we discovered his bratwurst fetish. This means that I, Eric, needed to step in as the 2D artist for the team. My latest work is this mock-up of the Load out screen:

On the flip side, we have some great news for you! After more than a year of working on the change over to Orange Box, you will finally get to play the new RnL soon. All of our Beta testers were executed by firing squad due to a failure in peace negotiations and therefore we will be releasing an open Beta test build to the public this month. Keep your eyes out for the release date. We really think you will love the new Wolfenstein approach that was taken.

Lastly, we are in the process of merging with a major video game company that has yet to be announced. Don't worry about any changes, though. After the Beta is released, there will be a delay as we fully integrate into the company. The following release will be a full game at $59.99. The team is overwhelmingly excited.

That is all we have for this update, stick around until the 15th for the mid-month Road to the Future. Also, before I finish this off, Happy April Fool's Day.

Bratwurst (pronounced Brart-verst) is a type of German sausage.

About time someone added a holographic sight to the BAR. It often gets over-looked in the history books, but they had them.
