A few weeks ago we announced that the work on Battlefield 1918 Major Release 3 was nearly finished. While this is partly true (all of the contents we wanted to include in the release are complete and built-in), some really severe bugs that we found in the final tests pevented us from releasing MR3. Maps kept on crashing, player models wore the wrong uniforms when you played online (this, for some reason, did not happen when you played offline...), and planes acted like walruses rather than feathers...stuff like that.
Once these bugs are all wiped out, we are ready to release - but I am not going to name you a specific date (because I can not -.-), so please keep on watching our profile here at moddb.com and our homepage. Once the mod is done, we tell you.
Anyway...this would not be a BF1918 news without screenshots, now would it? The answer is obviously "no". Here you are:
Say hello to our Russian Soldier. Equipped with a Mosin-Nagant 1891 Rifle, he is eagerly willing to fight the Germans and the Austrians, his main enemies in Battlefield 1918. So far, we planned two maps for the Russian soldier: Tannenberg (against Germany) and Krakau (against Austria). For some historical background, please refer to the screenshots description here at our profile.
This man here is a member of the Indian Army. We decided to add these soldiers in the mod to introduce some variety, especially for the maps of the Middle Eastern Theater of the war. You can find the Indian Army in the maps Siege of Kut Al Amra (remember the video?) and Tanzania Plains.
More help for the British comes from down under: The Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) makes its debut at Battlefield 1918 MR 3. Bismarck Archipel and Lutte de Honneur will be the maps where you can find them.
This screenshot shows a small part of an all-new map called Passo Di Falzarego. Fight as either a Italian or Austro-Hungarian soldier in this map and gain control of the Dolomites (at least of a small part of it) - and be careful not to accidently make a wrong step, as these mountains surely are high!
See you on the Battlefield of BF1918 MR3 - soon...
