Hey there runners!
RWR has finally appeared on Steam Early Access, awesome! We’ve also prepared a new trailer to highlight what’s going on in the game these days, see for yourself!
The about 20-month old demo also received a needed update, not sure how we justified postponing it for that long. So newcomers, head this way to get a feel of how the game actually plays.
Earlier Desura customers should keep their eyes on their Desura collection for a Steam redeem key, it will appear under Keys menu on the row for RWR. In plain English, there’s no need for you guys to re-purchase RWR in Steam.
Most of the BMTMicro customers should’ve been converted to Desura customers by now, and hence get the Steam redeem key through Desura similarly from Desura collection. If you’re one of those BMTMicro customers who never moved on to Desura, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get your key and state your e-mail and your full name used when you made the purchase in BMTMicro so that I can verify the info.
The transition from 0.93 to 0.94 took quite a while, but we wanted to ensure the game plays as well as possible now that we’re entering the new frontier in Steam, making most of the changes bug and balance fixes and visual tweaks. The changes you might consider major since 0.93 would be
* map and faction names getting renamed
* AI now attempting to use the shield
* AI squad members chatting spontaneously
* adding flying visual junk when vehicles are destroyed, and vehicle ricochet impact sounds
* usability improvements, control helper visual, vehicle health indication, menu help text
* team elimination PvP game mode script for servers and a small scale PvP map
* deathmatch game mode script for servers
Makes me glad that we’re done with the tweaking period for a while now as we get into some new feature development again – the fun stuff! Expect to see some form of campaign final/boss battles, several new maps, we are also have plenty of objective ideas that would need to be added in the campaign. Also, I’m especially looking forward to get the AI deploy defense structures, as it might change the battle scene happenings again in a major way.
