Pacific DLC coming soon, RWR 1.54 is out!

Konnichiwa Runners!

The Steam page for RUNNING WITH RIFLES: PACIFIC DLC is now up and open!

In the two campaigns included in the DLC, you jump back in time to the Pacific theater of World War II,
to witness the epic clash between the Imperial Japanese Army (IJA) and the United States Marine Corps (USMC).

The DLC features 7 brand new maps, tons of weapons and a number of unique vehicles all created based on actual WWII events and equipment.

The DLC will be released during September, safe to say we’re on the finish line here with development now. The exact release date will be announced during the following weeks.

Today we also have a vanilla update coming out. The shadow rendering has been revamped for higher quality options, most other changes are various minor but nice tweaks here and there or added support for features required by Pacific which could also turn out useful for mods; see the changelog on the forum.

RWR 1.52 and multiplayer demo!

Hello everyone!

Good to see that you guys are still out there and running, and for those who aren’t yet, make sure you grab the game while the price is hot. Right now, we indeed have the highest discount we’ve ever had on Steam!

Also right on time for Steam Summer Sale, we’ve got an exciting update for you guys. See the changelog for 1.52 here.

First of all, we took another look at the field of view (FOV or line of sight, if you will) feature, and added a new field visualization aid for it as the PvP mode Dominance confused some players with its suddenly disappearing and reappearing enemies and items. It’ll still do that, obviously, but now you’ll have a much better idea where the seen and unseen regions are thanks to the visualization. You can enable/disable it in Options > Quality and performance options; by default it’ll activate for Dominance only. The effect is rather taxing in terms of performance, so players with an older system might want to skip this one.

Speaking of Dominance PvP, we’ve updated the RWR Demo in Steam with the ability to play online by joining official Dominance servers! It’s just like full version, apart from XP and RP limits.

With the FOV visualization in place, it made a lot of sense to also change the character behavior so that it’ll turn to face the direction of aim and sight – previously you basically saw the character turn only when actively shooting or moving. It doesn’t change gameplay too much in other modes but for Dominance it can help you understand where the enemy players are looking at and thus tell you if they see you or not – that’s pretty important!

Hope you started well in the Summer! Keep on running,

RWR 1.51 is out!

Hey runners!

RWR version 1.51 is out! See the full change log here. Along the bug fixes, we’ve made some re-balancing by raising the importance of the support player role by adding, besides the already existing repair wrench, a new wrench type into the supply quad resources. Also C4 has been added in the supply quad to further increase the impact of this fun vehicle.

Kill combo has gone through another look, too. Recently it was decreased all too much after giving cosmic rewards for big artillery combos, so we came up with a formula to reach a new golden mean. Higher than ever rewards are given for smaller combos, but also big combos still give substantial rewards. This should hopefully make everyone happy and encourage vets once again to use those important strikes in Online Invasion!

As by popular request, two new rare weapons have also been added to the already huge collection of over 70 firearms!

An important note for the next version is an RP cap that will be implemented into vanilla when the Pacific DLC will be released. We decided to inform you properly several weeks prior so that you have time to burn your RP in case you have more than the cap of 600.000 RP. The RP limit is being added because some higher ranked players are collecting RP without spending them for cooperative purposes – just use the RP, guys :)

And now to the part most of you were eagerly waiting for since the announcement of a DLC:

WW2 Pacific war themed “RUNNING WITH RIFLES: PACIFIC” DLC will be available on AUGUST, 4 2017.

RWR 1.50 is out!

Hello Runners!

Today we have some tasty announcements for you guys!

We initially expected 1.47 to be a quick and small update but we ended up adding much much more in it and release this update as v1.50.

Besides the fixes, we added a new map in online Invasion where you assault a well defended beach fortification and village. Additionally we made some balancing efforts, added new weapons, added some new game mechanics, and a method for NAT punch-through which should allow most players to host a game without having to bother about port forwarding!

For a complete list of changes, check the changelog on the forum.

In a news post earlier this year we talked about an exciting announcement related to RWR, so here we go then!

We are proud to introduce RUNNING WITH RIFLES: PACIFIC, which is an Expansion-DLC for Running with Rifles. Set in World War 2, players will be able to engage in an authentic campaign, choosing to play as either the United States Marine Corps, or the Imperial Japanese Army. Playing as either faction, you will conquer a series of real islands located in the Pacific, with maps based on the general outlines of the actual locations! The full-length campaign features two completely new factions, a huge assortment of historical weapons and items, loads of new maps, and several new vehicles.

RWR: Pacific has been developed in co-ordination between the RWR dev team and several big community modders, namely The Soldier, Tremozl, MasterBlaster, with additional contributions by ChippedChap, Remlly, and Sturmfuhrer. The Expansion-DLC will include loads of new content, and using a more historically-rooted setting, it is complete with realistic soldier uniforms and authentic map designs.

More information coming up in the future!

Don’t forget the Dominance PvP meet up this evening! More info here!
