We have made the decision to switch to the Unreal Tournament 2003 engine as it has much greater support for mods and allows us to really shine in the art department. We'll be merging with another mod that hasn't been announced yet. BADLAND will be pretty much what it was planned to be still but the development timeline will reverse. Instead of developing vehicles and car combat first we will be making combat on foot. Small arms and blood instead of 20mm cannons and warped steel.
More news on this is coming soon as we work out the kinks in the merger.
