The goal of Resistance and Liberation is to realistically portray the events and actions taken by the 82nd Airborne during their stay in Normandy. We will attempt to follow the regiments through the campaign that was taken by the men themselves. We will also introduce various other World War II setting maps. The campaign will begin with players dropping into Normandy in the early hours of June 6th with the ultimate goal of capturing the town of Sainte-Mère-Église. From there, subsequent maps will include missions based on locations such as Saint-Côme-du-Mont, La Fiere, Sainte-Marie-du-Mont, Carentan, and other key areas.

Our approach
in recreating these events is quite different than that of most standard first person games. The principal of our focus is on playable realism. This realism we are referring to is beyond that of Counter-Strike or Day of Defeat. We are attempting to recreate the environment, weapons, challenges, and feeling of WWII combat to the best of our ability while still providing a game that feels fun and comfortable for at least a significant subset of gamers.

35 comments by Malivil on Jul 30th, 2011

Welcome back! It has been a week and as promised today we are releasing Patch 1.6!

If you are unaware of what promise I am referring to then check out this link as it contains a lot of information about Patch 1.6. If you already read that news then I would like to bring some points back to your attention. AndY, redMatter, and Pongles helped us continue work on patch 1.6 so that it can be released now. We cannot show our thanks enough. Also in that news post is a request for any talented developers with high priority on the positions of 3rd Person Animator and Prop Modeler/Texturer. If you are interested in mod development or know anybody that is then send them here.

This past week a few of the developers on the team sat down with Shawn "Deadrawkstar" Kiehl and Rob Harmon from to answer some questions about RnL and Patch 1.6. The interview is all ready and posted so check it out on their website, here.

While you are downloading the patch, feel free to look at some eye candy and read through the huge changelog. Seriously, between the changelog and the ModInformer interview, you have a lot to help you pass the time while this immense patch downloads.

Even though RnL may be back on track, we are still in need of help. The RnL Developers have been busting their butts on this patch and with so few developers the workload is huge. A round of applause needs to go out to the devs that have been working this hard. Even better than a round of applause though is filling some badly needed positions. Our current priorities lie with getting a 3rd Person Animator and Prop Modeler/Texturer, but any help from Software Engineers to Level Designers would be greatly appreciated. To fill out an application for any position, please visit this link.

Moving on to the fun part. I have been too busy to make an episode of Inside Surveillance for this release, however Hunnicutt and our newest addition to the team, Robinson, picked up my slack and made a video that shows off some key changes since the last patch. With that being said, I will turn your attention to the video.

There was a bug in the server code that made it impossible to capture points. If you have already updated your server to OB 1.6, please download the hotfix here.

I'm not trying to advertise, but if you guys are interested in guys who play this game there is now a 3rd infantry division realism unit dedicated to this game primarily. You can ask and learn more here, also memberships accepted too. But anyway, the point is that our unit owns 3 of a very small amount of the servers in the game, and we're always active.(are servers as well ;D) We have trainings for members on Wednesday and Sunday, we are also UK based, but we accept everyone.(I myself am one of the few Americans) I hope this helps you guys make a decision on re-downloading this game, or downloading as a first-timer! I also hope I wasn't bothering anyone with that slight advertisement, but it's useful info!

Overrated and utter garbage. Adds pretentious "realism" and brings nothing new to any WW2 FPS/Mod.

Limited community makes it worse
