Rise of War: Unternehmen Barbarossa (Current project) is a singleplayer, full conversion, first person shooter modification for Half-Life 2. RoW:UH following a German squad through the Eastern Front of WWII.
Rise of War will incorporate high doses of realism. Players can select as much equipment as they want before the mission, but the more they have, the heavier they are. Ironsights will be needed to see where you're aiming. As you get wounded you will move slower, have vision problems, not be able to hold you weapons steady, and then die.
Players will have to learn your comrades strengths and weaknesses in order to efficiently complete missions. Machine gunners are good against snipers, but bad against mortars; Snipers are good against most infantry, but can be easily killed by vehicles.
Large battles will be designed to be as accurate as possible. A few squads to an entire division may be helping you to complete the mission.
Command points play a large part in the game. Players will be able to use abilities to help win missions at the cost of command points. Points are gained for kills and victories.
RoW is primarily influenced by Hidden & Dangerous 2 and the Call of Duty series.
After hard work by our modelers and mappers, we have 4 images that will be shown to the public for the first time.

Also, we have 2 picture of Notre-Dame de Saint Lo:
We should have more media on the way as or developers make more progress. The first release of RoW is scheduled in 2008. It will be called Rise of War: Fall of Normandy. It will be updated via patches with new content. We are looking forward to showing more of our progress in the near future.
