Hey Gamers, today we have an extremely long and extremely overdue news post. We have been waiting on getting a new website up to introduce it, but unfortunately that has fallen through the cracks - in fact we're actually on the lookout for a new web developer as well as some new art talent to get 2.0 out the door and onto Steam. At the bottom of this update you will find a hiring section, giving you details on what positions we need filled along with the benefits and requirements of joining. However, before all of that we would like to show some fresh media from Firearms: Source 2.0, as well as bring attention to ModDB's Mod of the Year 2010 awards.
In today's media dump, we are showing off our new hand models alongside a few of our weapons with parts from the new attachment system implemented. For Firearms: Source 2.0, we will be releasing with two primary attachment types: the suppressor and the aimpoint. These attachments are far more than simple eye candy, and will allow you to customize and transform your weapons to fit the role of your choosing. After this initial release we plan to introduce new attachments and variations of existing types with each update, from bayonets to high capacity magazines to underslung grenade launchers. The attachments will be tied into the credit system, so the more you outfit your firearms, the less additional weaponry and armor you will be able carry.
In the images above, you may have spotted a new addition to the Firearms arsenal: the Simonov SKS. While the rifle excels at long ranges, unlike a DMR or sniper rifle it allows you to be more mobile both under fire and while providing it. The SKS is loaded via stripper clip, which means that in order to reload a partially emptied rifle you will first have to dump the remaining bullets in the weapon. We also show off the Sterling, which you have seen in previous news posts, but with our new hand models. In the rest of the screenshots you can see some examples of our attachment combinations in action. Whether you want to use a suppressed M14 in the designated marksman role or would rather stick an aimpoint on your M3 Super 90, there is an attachment and weapon combination for you.
We would also like to thank all of our dedicated fans for helping nominate Firearms: Source as one of the Top 100 mods of the year on ModDB. Now that we've made it this far, it's up to you again to ensure that we finalize our spot as Mod of the Year 2010! Be sure to head over to ModDB and vote for your favorite mods, and dont forget Firearms: Source!
