0.99 is now available in Steam, soon to follow in Desura, and in Steam also with Mac OSX support!
To celebrate the addition of a new platform support, we’ve also added RWR in the Steam Holiday Sale with 33% discount! Effectively this can get you RWR still with the in-dev phase price, go go go!
To us, 0.99 marks the spot when we consider feature development, and largely content too, complete for what comes to the single player/small scale coop campaign. From this point on, only minor changes will go through into that part of the game, some vehicle texture work, more AI dialogue, tweaking map and campaign win moments, things like that.
That means that the campaign is becoming complete with 9 regular maps and 2 special maps for final missions, with the very final mission being introduced in this update. The other major addition this time is the faction specific vehicle models for APC, tank and jeep. Big thanks go to harrified for the two new tank models, awesome work there.
Other than those, there have been several fixes, some new support added for stuff specific to the new final mission, and new stuff for modding; see the change log over here.
We’re pretty new to Mac OSX, so the support shall begin with Mac OSX version 10.9 Mavericks, based on early tests 10.10 Yosemite works as well. I will be looking into options on how to get the earlier OSX versions supported in the near future.
Talking about future, what’s next then? Possibility for remote profiles / profile sharing and online Invasion teamkill penalty mode have been hot topics lately, which I will be working on for the next weeks targeting 0.99.1 update still on this year’s side. Minimodes development continues as well, as does the usability tweaking.
