Elite is a modern, tactical first person shooter, containing no sci-fi elements. Forcing the players to use tactics and teamwork in order to win, Elite will not be any new "Run & Gun Shooter", as seen in games such as "Call of Duty" and "Battlefield 3". Centering about modern days special forces, players can create their own characters for use in single player and multiplayer, using a very smart character customization system, where it also is possible for players to have as many characters as preferred. Having sophisticated planning stages, a very special weapon view, singleplayer campaign and a large multiplayer rank system, Elite is something different from other games. Offering both Close Quarter Battle and large out-door environments, weapon choices will be essential for the operations in both offline as well as online mode. Long assault rifles will bang against walls in room fight, and submachine guns doesn't have a very far range for long engagements.

Bad news for Elite: Special Forces, as progress the following weeks will be a lot of slower. We heavily apologize.

Posted by on

Hello.

Things have turned out bad this week for E: SF. Loss of man power means that progress the upcoming weeks will be a bit of slower. We apologize heavily, but as our community is our life blood, we find the need to tell you about this.

But we can still post a few screenshots! Though nothing too excited (the excited update with a lot of our work will come in the next update hopefully, but will be a bit slowed down due to this).

First of all, a concept of a MI-24 helicopter. This helicopter will be a Russian/Spetsnaz transport and combat helicopter. It will be able to transport 8 special Spetsnaz operators.


Secondly, here's a picture of some of our in-engine bushes! We have not included variations of the bushes, only the types so you can see them instead.

Thanks man, but I think you should know that I am not the only guy working. As we have lost a lot of team members do to a an issue that I will not talk about, we're only 6 guys from the original 16. Without these guys this project would not be where it is now, so let's thanks them!

When i said "thank you", it had the plural meaning, not the singular one:D I know you are team,and not just a single man, who does this amazing job.

You know, I have been thinking for a while if the Tier 1 Spetsnaz Alfa really uses the Hinds for general transport and assault. The Hind is more of an attack helicopter and for counter-terrorist operations you'd expect them to use something different and lighter like the OH-6. Yet, the Russian military doesn't really posses any light transport helicopters, at least locally made ones.

Hello!

We will be adding the OH-6, but this helicopter, together with the CH-47 Chinook, will transport the Western troops, but possible also the Spetsnaz in some co-operations. This was originally planned as well, but thanks for your suggestion!
