update 1.64 out! feat. Man vs. World coop mode

Greetings Runners!
In the first major update for 2018 we’d like to introduce you some tasty additions to the main game as well as for the PACIFIC DLC! On top of that, the game will be on sale until April 2 which is the date of the third anniversary of RWR, woohoo! :)
To start off, we adapted the “Man vs. World” mode into a campaign playable as 2-player cooperative. It continues to be an unforgiving perma-death mode but having a mate to join you on your adventure could make you feel more comfortable and you’d have someone to revive you in case you are wounded. We highly suggest playing this mode with FoV enabled (veteran mode) as it adds a lot to the excitement and also requires more tactical approach to not get surprised by the enemy.

Over the years, the community has constantly provided us with interesting suggestions and a lot of them have made it into the game. Also, the modding community got bigger, especially since the implementation of Steam Workshop and even more since we have a Discord server with a modding channel which makes it easier and faster for modders to help each other. Therefore we decided to include the community even more in the game development by starting a “community box” contest. This box is similar to how the gift box works, but with goodies provided by community members. There has been a lot of submissions but only a part of it made it into this update. We have no doubt that there will be more community boxes in the future!

This big roll-out for Pacific will focus on the battle of Peleliu Airfield! As have all our Pacific maps it was researched well to represent it in a historical demeanor; we laid out all the major iconic structures and the shape of the island relative to real maps and photos. It is available in both Quickmatch and Campaign.
Alongside the map is being introduced several all-new gear pieces, both weapons and items, which when combined fortify the player into virtually a “walking” bunker. Of course, the AI makes use of all this gear as well! And so being introduced is also an all new “mini-boss” adversary, the “Sentry” Soldier! Similar to RWR’s EOD armoured troops, the Sentry is a tough, thickly armoured adversary (and occasionally an ally too), and in Pacific, alongside his heavy Sentry Armour, he always comes equipped with a hip-fired Heavy Machine Gun.

Last but not least, we’ve fixed the popular “RUNNING WITH THE DEAD” mod which had some nasty crash issues due to some recent vanilla updates. Ultimately we didn’t just fix those but also put some work into the mod overall. As a mod should be something coming from the community, we’d invite every motivated modder to join the team and continue the project as we unfortunately don’t have much time left to sustain the continuation of this mod. New maps would be something great we’d like to see worked on for the mod. Feel free to join Discord to discuss it with us and other modders!
The updated mod should be uploaded a couple of hours after the 1.64 vanilla release, thanks for your patience!

Running with the Dead update

We’ll also set up 2 new servers in mainland China to host DOMINANCE (PvP) and most likely a RUNNING WITH THE DEAD mod server. Those will still be experimental servers.
Happy Running,Osumia Games
