One of the last remaining Battlefield 2142 total conversion modifications. Set in a dystopian near-future inspired by the world of George Orwell's 1984, Urban Warfare intends to create a tense and believable battle tactics game shored up by a strong and motivating story line. Following the events of an organised revolution against a totalitarian government, Urban Warfare will feature close-quarters, street based battles designed to bring the fighting close to the gamers home. * Description sourced from TPCGUK Review
The first news update from the Urban Warfare team in well over 6 months as we get prepared for our big release year. Featured are some new weapons (images and videos) and Urban Warfare featuring in Total PC Gaming Magazine UK!

The decision was made a few months ago to abandon publicising the mod. We were simply spending too much time trying to get the mod name out there and not enough making it. All 4 of us (yes, a very small team) knuckled down and got working. This being, for many of us, our first mod project ever and working with an incredibly difficult game engine, we made slow progress initially but we have now reached a point where new models are being put into the game almost quadruple the rate they were initially being put into it.
UWLR-700 . Government Police General Assignment Assault Rifle. Comes with attachable RPG and is designed for mid-close range combat and has enormous firepower. The only drawback of the UWLR-700 is its large weight and large recoil due to both the weight and firepower.
The classic M16-A2 is the assault rifle generally given to United Peoples Movement Rebels. Ancient though they are, they were generally easy to come by given their popularity in the past. The M16-A2 is a good all rounder for all ranges of combat. What it lacks in the raw firepower its counterpart the UWLR-700 has, it makes up for in its light weight and maneuverability. Comes with attachable RPG.
The Government Police Riot Control Gunship (R.C.G) strikes fear into the hearts of the United Peoples Movement. Initially designed to hover over peaceful protests releasing noxious gases to disperse the crowds the R.C.G had several... alterations... as the protests began turning violent. Equipped with anti-infantry and anti-vehicle weaponry, the gunship reigns supreme with no other U.P.M equivalent in the sky. Until only recently, the R.C.G seemed invincible, but new U.P.M improvised anti-aircraft weaponry systems have proved to be surprisingly successful...

Hopefully there will be some more regular updates from now on. I can confirm Urban Warfare is aiming to release a public BETA this year.
A quick thank you to all the guys (Tom, Eric, Kazmi and Marc) who worked so hard on getting to this point.
That's it for now. Hope you guys had a good holiday season!
