So much has happened since we were last celebrating a major community milestone. When we hit 1,000 community members we gave each of those one custom wallpaper. So this time we decided it would only appropriate to do something similar.. and give each of the first 2,000 members three wallpapers.

We have also updated the milestone ribbon so the first 1,000 members have been promoted with two silver stars () and members who have joined us since last time will each receive the single bronze star version ().

All the rewards above are for the first 2,000 members but we aren't leaving anyone out. If you head over to the rewards page all members will find a fourth brand new wallpaper.

The team is very excited about the year ahead with some important development milestones now within sight (no that isn't a hint about a release date). Since day one there has been a long road to follow but the community's support has made the journey so much more enjoyable for everyone involved.

Greetings devs!

-Do you have a release date for the 1st Chapter?
-Will you introduce different setting/s?
-I really hope the game will be on par with RO2/RS in terms of realism, you can really immerse yourself in those games just because of the fact that you always need to be on your toes cause a bullet with your name is in anyones gun.
-I can't wait to try this game, I'm fed up with arcadish and comic shooters that are in the FPS market now.
-Keep up the good work, Cheers!!!

Well, I'm not a developer, But I can echo what they have always been saying about the release date. They say: When It's Ready. Personally I find realism is good, In moderation. If it's just overpowered like you catch a bullet if you turn a corner and instantly get killed. Otherwise it's just plain frustrating and no fun. I find RO2 is bordering on that, But it isn't completely frustrating.

The turning the corner and always meeting a bullet happens because it's easier to shoot a gun in those games than it is in reality. That's a big issue with FPS games attempting to be realistic. No need for fire superiority when all that matters is who swings their perfectly precise gun onto the target first.

Thanks for the reply! I'm coming from HnG and altough that game is fun, it's downright arcadish and I've kinda stopped playing it and found TW quite recently on HnG forum where a lot of people were buzzing about it. I took a look and since I don't have fast internet I could just read these posts and open a few images, I can say that I'm impressed with the amount of detail the weapons have, it trully is staggering. Regarding the realism part of your post I agree that Ro2/RS isn't your typical shooter, and the more you play the more you get familiar with the maps and the overall gameplay, you pick up a few tricks and get a lot more cautious.

RO2 never involved real teamwork and tactics, really big open maps, lots of vehicles and vareity in theatres of war.

Thats what I'm hope to get from TW
RO2 for me is just slowed down CoD

@Serathis1 there is no CRYENGINE4 only CRYENGINE. IndieDB changed the engine name for some reason which is confusing people.
