It's been quite a while since I, MenteR, don't write an update myself. I may not have the amazing writing skills of our storyline coordinator: Spooboy, but this update is an informative, quick update to get your fingers ready for the demo that we're preparing for you guys. And guess what? It comes this weekend.
The first demo of Opposing Force 2 is called "The Stadium Demo", and it carries the name for a reason. On this demo we focused solely on NPCs and weapons, and for this, we have made a stadium map similar to Sven-Coop's. On this map, you'll be able to spawn a bunch of HL2 and OF2 NPCs, spawn barricades, spawn props and press a button that casts the incredible Michael Bay mode, which triggers a lot of explosions throughout the stadium. All that by simplying pressing buttons all around. We'll also include of2_forest_contact, one of the Deadlock Conflict maps, which is being designed by one of our mappers, Hazard24, as a bonus. And finally, the Crossfire map for all your unecessary needs of exploding nukes and spamming NPCs.
Being completely sincere, we did not include a few weapons and NPCs. However, you can make sure that our team is working hard on them. This month only, our subversion had more than 200 revisions. Which means, estimatively 8 assignments (including models, maps, NPCs, weapons, and so on) got finished per day. So worry not, because this is not going to be our only demo. We plan on releasing a longer demo with the full weapon arsenal and the complete list of NPCs in game in one or two months.
Let's give a stop on the words. Here's a beaultiful compilation of our most recent media:
Relaxing, wasn't it? It'll be even more relaxing for you to know that we plan on releasing full game chapters separately. That way, we don't keep you guys waiting an year for a full release, which, most of times, is full of glitches. And once all chapters are complete, we'll release the actual full game with a coop mode. Multiplayer? Who knows.
This is it guys, thanks for supporting us throughout 3 years of development, that are now finally coming closer and closer to a final result. We thank you, but thank these guys for making it all possible. Opposing Force 2 is:
