📕 Description [fr]

Un shooter tactique en vision objective, par le studio Modulaatio Games (Pasi Kainiemi).
Il utilise le moteur OGRE.

Running with rifles (RWR) est un shooter tactique en vision objective, mettant l'accent sur la coopération, la conduite d'escouades et le faible poids du simple soldat dans une grande guerre. Le joueur y incarne un soldat pris dans le chaos des villes, tranchées et forêts transformées en champs de bataille impitoyable, dans une armée de plusieurs centaines d'autres soldats.
Deux équipes s'affrontent pour la conquête complète du territoire adverse. Les soldats armés de fusils et grenades doivent atteindre des points stratégiques (tel que des aéroports, des écoles, des hôtels…) pour les capturer.



Présentation par l'auteur (extrait du forum "Canard PC", lien ci-dessus) :

Personnellement je résumerais le jeu comme un mix entre "Battlefield" et "Cannon fodder" en mode solo ou multijoueur (coop, PvP+bots et pure PvP). Le jeu se trouve en version beta (75% fini).
Tu n'es pas un héros, juste un petit soldat parmi quelques centaines d'autres qui essai de frayer son chemin et de se faire un nom dans une bataille sans merci en prenant le dessus sur la multitude d'ennemis.

📕 Description [en]

Pick up your rifle and join the Green, Grey or Brown army in their mission to send the enemy home in a box!
RWR is an open world, top-down, tactical shooter for single player and multiplayer online, that puts you right in the middle of chaos in towns, trenches and forests turned into ruthless battlefields, controlling just one soldier in an army of several hundreds.



🌍️ Wikipedia :

Running with Rifles (stylized RUNNING WITH RIFLES) is a top down, open world, tactical shooter game published and developed by Modulaatio Games. There are currently servers based in Europe and USA but according to the developer, "as long as the lag stays below 200ms the online game sessions seem very playable". The maps can be up to 1 kilometer large. The game was developed by Pasi Kainiemi in Tampere, Finland and Jack Mayol in Stuttgart, Germany . Running with Rifles has a cartoony art style and hast been designed to run fine even on older computers.

Gameplay

Running with Rifles is a top down shooter where you take the role of a soldier during a war in multiple different maps. The game allows the player to play however they want, the war will rage on without the player being there. This allows for looting of enemies, flanking and sabotaging the enemies. As well as multiplayer, Running with Rifles also has a single-player campaign where there are a lot of levels. This game requires skills in more than one area as the player will need to flank, communicate, attack and defend simultaneously, sometimes. There are upgrades available as well, most being for protection. There are also vehicles located around the map. The open world mechanic gives the player the ability to run around and capture any point on the map at any time.

In Running with Rifles, the open world aspect allows multiple different playstyles and allows for lots of different opportunities and ways to attack. The player can slowly rank up until they have an entire fleet at their disposal. The game is described as a simple to jump into and play type of game and only takes a few hours to get used to the basic mechanics of the game and has been likened to Cannon Fodder. The single-player has the same structural play as the multi-player version so therefore the player can learn to play either one and then play the other one without issues.

Game modes

There are currently (as of update 1.01), 8 different types of game modes. They are; Team Elimination, Teddy Hunt, Classic, Deathmatch, Minimodes, Invasion, Quick Match and Dominance.

• Team Elimination

As the name suggests, in Team Elimination, you are required to wipe out the entire other team to win. This is one of the newer game modes so there are bugs and can only be run via dedicated servers.

• Teddy Hunt

Teddy Hunt is similar to Capture the Flag in the sense that you need to collect items to win. In Teddy Hunt special crates are scattered around the map and when broken, a teddy bear will be left remaining. To make your team get a point, these bears must be sold to the shop (armory) otherwise they're useless. The other team needs to try and stop you from doing this whilst trying to do it themselves. The crates will be protected by AI.

• Classic

Classic is similar to Quick Match but with a few minor differences; such as you can only capture 1 base, map rotation and a timer is in play.

• Deathmatch

Deathmatch is a PvP game mode where every kill the player gets is added to their score. The player with the most points by the end of the round wins.

• Minimodes

Minimodes is like an all in one. In Minimodes there are lots of sub-stages that involve all the other gamemodes. For the match to work, there must be a minimum of 2 players at all time.

• Invasion

In Invasion, the player is put onto the same faction as everyone else. This is a co-op gamemode where you must work together to complete the objectives. There are official servers that host this gamemode, unlike "Quick Match". In invasion, all XP and RP gains are reasonably slower than the other game modes.

• Quick Match

Quick Match is the game mode that's meant to be the shortest in length. In Quick Match, stock weapons are unlocked automatically, the players rank can be set to anything and the player can join any faction they want before the game begins. There are no rules to what you cannot capture, so all capture points are capture-able immediately.

• Dominance

Dominace is similar to both Classic and Quick Match combined. Dominance tries to focus more on the strategic side thus the player has to be more consistent and there's slower progression.

Maps

There are 11 maps as of update 1.01, they are; Moorland Trenches, Keepsake Bay, Old Fort Creek, Fridge Valley, Bootleg Islands, Rattlesnake Crescent, Power Junction, Vigil Island, Black Gold Estuary, Copehill Down, Frozen Canyon. There is 1 PvP map, [The] Islet of Eflen. This allows for diverse exploration and lots of different areas to visit.
