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.

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 ModInformer.org 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.

Do people still play this mod?

On a good day, you'll see a max of 28 people playing. Due to the recent STEAM UserID Tickets error, only one of the servers works. However, there are still two active clans that keep the game running. The amount of people you'll be playing with unfortunately depends on your time zone. If you live in the US, you're more likely to play with more people. Overall, the game is still active, but could use all the players it can get.

Hey I just wanted to say that I tooled around on some of the maps for an hour or so and I thought this was really really well done. I don't know if your efforts were wasted on Source, but this is basically what I always wanted DoD to be. I'm not sure about your move to cryengine, but hey I guess that's a train that's already left. If you do as good as you're doing here, I'll do what I can to get a license for that engine.

I noticed as a first timer that I had to uncheck "Map list" in order to see any servers whatsoever. Otherwise it seemed as though there were none.

The Devs dont care for its fanbase, since they're trying to make it standalone on CRYENGINE. ******* CRYENGINE. Do you know how many people CANNOT run that game engine?

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