RWR 1.62 is out – new vehicles for the PACIFIC DLC

Hey there!

RUNNING WITH RIFLES version 1.62 is out! As another fine tuning update, this time we worked on improving vehicles, boats and tanks in particular, along with vehicle “ghost” rendering when occluded by other visuals and some new particle effects. Another rare weapon has also been added in campaign and Invasion, there can never be enough of those!

Boats behave more smoothly with beach areas now, having a larger range how far into beach you can steer and moving slower when in partial contact with ground. Tracked vehicles such as tanks now allow finer rotations while in motion and the so called “neutral steering” behaves more reliably – appears the AI drivers think highly of these improvements as well. Additionally, the AI can now handle straight driving better (surprisingly difficult if you think about it) with much less zigzag from side to side.

Additionally, we have some new vehicles for the Pacific DLC as shown in the picture; an armory boat for the IJA and one for the USMC. Those can be pretty handy when landing at a beach without any static armory far and wide.

We also added a new armored transport vehicle for the IJA: Type 1 Ho-Ha. It’s a relatively fast half-track with 3 mounted MGs that are covering the front part of the vehicle. It has been added as a radio call as a counter-part of the USMC LVT-4.

PACIFIC DLC is out now!

Good day, Runners!

Woohoo the PACIFIC DLC is finally there, waiting for you!

The idea for Pacific initially rose before the release of Running with Rifles on Steam, thus in the beta phase of the game. 3 modders and fans of military history games who all made solid mods for RWR (Overlord, Running with Trench Foot, Running in the Trenches…) decided around 2 years ago to work together to bundle their talents in a common project, that’s when the Pacific project started. Some time later, after we at Osumia Games got informed about the ongoing project, we decided to develop it together to make it a DLC-worthy project.

Pacific DLC has been translated to all the same languages as RWR except for Russian which is still under work at the moment. It should follow in the next few days!

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.
