Description
What is RUNNING WITH RIFLES?

Keep your head down SOLDIER - you’ll need it!

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.

In a war where men die like flies and endless streams of reinforcements run to fill the void, it takes tactics and marksmanship to capture territories effectively. The open world nature of the game enables you to use a multitude of approaches to help the front line move – it's up to you to shape your role. Experience the complete arc starting as a private hardening into a high ranking officer with a squad under command, arming yourself with a variety of weapons and vehicles on your way to glory!

Can't wait for the release. Have been a loyal fan/lurker of this since I stumbled upon prealpha 0.1 while looking through RPS, but too loyal to Steam (technically out of laziness) to switch to Desura. Just like I couldn't go Origin for BF3, stubborn me had to go and get the PS3 version just to avoid the hassle.
