Post news RSS Firearms: Source Release Date, July 23rd

Thank you very much for all your loyal support thus far, Firearms Source fans! We have finally reached July, and its now time to announce that we will be releasing July 23rd!

Posted by on

We have come a long way with Firearms Source, from our early beginnings using all borrowed content for weapons and mounting the Counter-Strike: Source Grid Cache File, to now using all of our own custom weapon models and building up our asset library with our own art team. We have been on a long and unique journey getting to where we are now. Our early design document didn't include our own player models, or even prone. We have gone through multiple leaderships and have merged with other teams to help make this a reality. And now we have gone above and beyond the old design document and hope to bring you an exciting interpretation of Firearms with this release.

However, Firearms did not become the game it is in its first release. Just think of all the work and releases it took to get to your favorite version. We can't thank the original Firearms team enough, for their hard work and dedication to the mod. We hope we can continue to carry that torch into this new engine, and we hope you, our community, will help steer Firearms Source in the right direction. Firearms Source 1.0 will not be the last release, we plan on building it up like a modification should, and will be supporting Firearms Source for years to come. We strongly believe that we should stick to this formula, as long as you are here to support us.

So, thank you very much for all your loyal support thus far, Firearms Source fans! We have finally reached July, and its now time to announce that we will be releasing July 23rd!

For those who would like to run an FA:S server for the release day, we will try to release the server builds a few days in advance. If you would like to countdown the days until release, just check the top right of our website.

I hate games that are just silly gun-faps (Modern warfare, 90% of military focused mods), and yet I recall enjoying Firearms on goldsrc because it was such a shameless gun-fap. It took gun-fapping and elevated it to a form of art. The quenton tarantino of gun games , if you will. Will be looking forward to playing this next iteration and fapping over all the guns you've lovingly modelled :)
