Post news RSS Rise of the Reds - The Race for 1.5 Segments 4 & 5

Though yesterday's update failed to make it in time, we hope to compensate today by releasing two in one! Review the shiny new gleam on the USA's airpower, see the monstrous Chinese Overlord Tank brought up to scratch, and catch a glimpse of a new structure for the Russian Federation in this update as we move closer than ever to the release of 1.5. Also included are bonus screenshots taken by the beta testing team for your viewing pleasure.

Greetings generals! Thank you once again for attending one of our briefings. Very soon we'll be releasing a new version of your battle software and you'll be able to wage war like never before. We wish to apologize for the delay so today we bring you two updates in one! So let us look at the goodies we have for you tonight! First the renders:

Russian Blackout Node

Russian Blackout Node


The Blackout Node is one of the latest fruits from the Federation’s labor in anti-intelligence warfare. The Blackout Node sends extremely volatile signals that jams communication and sensors making the whole premises as if they were a void of space. These are rumored to have kept the European Continental Army unaware of the buildup of Russian forces along the border.

American Nighthawk

American Nighthawk Fighter-Bomber


The Nighthawk is one quickly aging bird but it is still in service. Despite several design flaws and an exuberant price they are still the only stealth attacker the United States Air Force has. Despite these shortcomings the Nighthawk is still one of the most feared aircraft around.

American Raptor

American Raptor

The Raptor has long been the undisputed king of the skies and the United States Air Force has no plans to retire it anytime soon. It has yet to prove its supremacy against the Federation’s Berkut but with current turns of global politics it is expected that will happen very soon. Since the European Continental Army lost all of its fixed wing aircraft the Raptor may just be what takes back the European skies.

Chinese Overlord

Chinese Overlord


This tank may no longer be the king of the battlefield but it is still a force to be reckoned with. Allowed to be upgraded for a myriad of roles, the Overlord can always be the unit you can trust in any situation. Nowadays for reasons unknown the Overlord is seen with less frequency due to the fact now it is needed special clearance to manufacture them. They are still however always among the elite of the People’s Liberation Army.

Finally, we have some new screenshots for you to look over taken by our testers as compensation for the delay. These are for your eyes only:

Will there be more units in 1.5 or just balance fixes?

We generally leave a few unannounced units for each release. So yes, there are a few more units, but there will also be plenty of bug fixes as well as a few big gameplay changes.

I'm afraid that the ECA won't be in this release, as they haven't been completed to a sufficient standard. 1.5 is a refining release that presents the existing sides (China, USA, Russia) in something that now approximates how they'll play in 2.0 (though without Generals, of course) and updates a wealth of visual content.

Will the russian blackout node work as the allied gap generator, by creating a black, "unexplored" area around itself for its enemies or make friendly units nearby invisible?

Also, will my fave side - the GLA - by back in 2.0?!?!?!

thanks.

Yes, its function is almost identical to the Gap Generator. And GLA will be back before 2.0, though not in 1.5.

hey, ive got an idea... since the russians have the tremor agas and there artilery thets alike why dont you change the chineese artillery call... instead make them launnch some mini nukes that does the same damage as the artillery but with the extra effect of radiation for a very short time.
