Post news Report article RSS Feed Beta 3.0 status update: almost there.

Take a look to our scoped Sharps rifle, player manned Gatling gun and global stats. We also invite everyone to play our latest release candidate version.

Posted by R_Yell on Jul 18th, 2010

There's no release date confirmed yet but I can tell you it isn't far. It's a matter of doing a few extra playtests and getting Linux build fully debugged, mainly. If there's no surprises awaiting for us around the corner, it should be out before August.

In the mean time, we are having lots of fun with beta 3.0, so we want to invite all our fans to check it out before official release comes. Your help also will be very valuable to tweak and fine-tune it as much as possible. If you are interested please step by our steam group and you'll be notified when a new version is available.

In other order of things, if a fully reworked and debugged player movement system, highly improved networked code, new map and game modes, and ton of bugfixes and gameplay changes aren't enough for you, there is more ;) Check out this video for cool Gatling and telescopic Sharps action. Well, it's actually just a feature preview:

There's also good news for stats and ranking lovers. As we are getting HLStatsX:CE official support, there also will be global ranks. They will be based on notoriety, of course! As you know, notoriety is our game score which accounts for all objective/combat/team based actions. It's a server administrator option to send their stats to our global rank or not. That's all, hope you are as excited as we :)

Not bad; although, things seem to be a little slow.

Oh man, I can't wait to mess around with the Sharps, and the gatling gun looks nice too.

As the Heavy would say,
Is about time tiny baby bots stop using big gun! Big gun is for strong man like me! Pow! Ha ha!

The animations of the rifle and the rotating gaitling gun barrels are..strange, imo. But otherwise, well done!

Well done for the most part, but the Sharps' handling seems a bit clumsy for me.

I'm still not a fan of the really stupidly long ironsight/scope times, but I'm still looking forward to the new version.

Have you tried getting Steamworks rather than relying on HLStatsX for ranking?
