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.

RnL joins up with Blackened Interactive, gives an update on their current status and shares two in-game videos

Posted by Zanboo on Apr 12th, 2008

The last few weeks have been a period of change here at RnL with the team joining up with Blackened Interactive, the makers of Project Valkyrie and Front Line Force which for us means a big step in the
direction of getting the final assets together for an initial release. For a long time we have been lacking the man power in critical areas of development and it's looking like the drought might finally be over.

Lately we have been working on improving some of the maps with Come Du Mont getting some polishing touches added and Stefan picking up Carentan Causeway again after a while off. Work has also been started on an OB port of the code base, which won't feature in the initial release but will be included in a later update.

Finally, we have some videos of the Thompson and MP40 in action we would like to share with you, please bear in mind that these are still work in progress!

Aye its looking good; almost there! Loving the weapons in particular!

I'd like to hear more ambient sounds I guess, birds twittering is nice... but this is the Second World War, a nice background war noise on top would be nice =]. The lighting is also a bit plain; but this ain't finished so errr I'll shut up now =X.

Door breaching tool back in WW2 = Mark19 "Right Foot"

i.e. there was no door breaching tool.

Henley Apr 14 2008 replied:

notice how i never implied there was a tool? Door breaching dose not mean "using a tool to enter a door" it means

"v. breached, breach·ing, breach·es

v. tr.

1. To make a hole or gap in; break through.
2. To break or violate (an agreement, for example)."

so what I was referring too was the act or action of breaking a door using force ala kick or right foot.

The weapons animation is second to none - even including professional games. I've never seen anything quite like it! :-)

About time for an update from you guys. I already forgot about R'nL, even though it used to be a mod, which I fillowed with great interest? Did you lose your Pr-guy, or what happened?

I would have liked to see some of the more innovative aspects of your game in these films, but have to agree that everyting looks supergood. There are few times in video games, I see a sewage canal that actually resembles one and isn't two meters wide and one high. Bad idea getting stuck in there...

If you add a door kick animation where you can literally kick down a door (off hinges!!!!) that would be sooo cool

You guys disapeared for the longest time, but im glad your back. It's looking really good at this point and i'll point out the things that I want to see in the game that I hope you guys haven't forgotten about, some of wish are just my wants and not really specified by you guys but I still think would be awesome feature wise. Of course feature-creep is always a bad thing.

* No map, you have to hold a map out to actually find out where your going.
* All voicechat is only transmitted to those within a certain distance around you while it gets quieter the farther a person is. Only radiomen can communicate between each other long distances (would be awesome... but seems like it would take a bit of tweaking to get functional)
* Emphasize teamwork!

I've still got your mod on watch.

Hell this looks amazing. This could even rival Medal of honor and Call of duty.

I'd pay good money to buy this if it was a real game but since its a free mod thats even better. :D
