What is different to Beyond Enemy Lines 1?

Beyond Enemy Lines 2 is an evolution of Beyond Enemy Lines 1 and will change a lot of things introduced in the first game. While the original Beyond Enemy Lines was a spiritual successor to Project IGI and stick very close to it's roots, Beyond Enemy Lines 2 is no longer "limited" in this way and is a more complex and evolved tactical FPS.
(Personal note: I just don't like to develop a sequel which is more or less a reskin of an existing game with only 1-2 changes)

One thing which got removed first was the Map Computer as it is no longer required to plan your tactics. Missions are designed in a clearer and more readable way and the introduction of customizable weapons required some rebalancing. Out of the same reason the carried weapons are limited to a primary and secondary weapon as well as a backup pistol. In other words you can carry only 3 weapons at a time.

The player movements were expanded by adding lean and prone funcionallity. Weapons handle like real weapons and fires into the direction of where the barrel is pointing at. Which means each move of the weapon affected the bullet impact location.

Oh and one more thing ... weapons do no longer clip trough objects!


Multiplayer?

Yes? No? Possible!
Beyond Enemy Lines 2 is a singleplayer game just like Beyond Enemy Lines 1. But I heard your request of Multiplayer and Coop and Beyond Enemy Lines 2 is developed with Multiplayer in mind. Due to the fact I'm still a single person developing the game, I have no resources to develop Singleplayer, Multiplayer and Coop at the same time in a decent quality. Singleplayer first and then we will see. A small Multiplayer Prototype is up and running and it's very possible to see the Multiplayer as a seperate spin off game at a later date.


Lootcrates & Microtransactions

No way!


Release?

When it's done!
No seriously, when it's done! Beyond Enemy Lines 2 is currently in pre alpha stage and there is so much to do and to check out that it's nearly impossible to give a date. Beyond Enemy Lines 2 will start an open and community driven development in 2018 and will be released once the quality is right.


What's next?

Open and Community driven development in 2018!

Don't makret your game to "hardcore" audience. This might turn off potential buyers (great example is LawBreakers)
