Modulaatio Games is have announced that Running With Rifles has now been released as a final version!
Running With Rifles (RWR) is a top-down tactical shooter with some open-world RPG elements.
In RWR, you join the ranks of an army as a common soldier, just like the thousands around you. To your superiors, you’re nothing but cannon fodder… (Which the game makes me fondly remember playing as a youngster!)
The open world approach lets you define your own path and story in the campaign. Push back the enemy with your comrades or go deep behind enemy lines to sabotage their efforts and loot valuable items. There’s a whole lot fo action, so you can always look for a way to help your team in your own style.
As you gain experience, you are promoted with higher command over soldiers and equipment. Call in artillery fire missions or paratrooper reinforcements when the situation gets tight! Use your squad to man armed boats, tanks and APC’s. Maybe you will try the lone wolf, secret agent behind enemy lines style, just be ready to die a lot!
