    Grabbed this from Steam this morning. WW1 FPS. Squad based online play with four member teams. Still in beta but cheap enough ($13) so it don't matter. Only 3 maps at the minute with promise of more. Graphics etc not as good as they will be yet bur looks promising. I jumped in for about 16 mins just as a shooter (4 roles to choose in each squad) and had a run around. Think It would be better to learn the game with a few friends rather than get abused by experienced players for not knowing what I'm s'posed to do :) Check it out.

    Sounds like a Red Orchestra scenario and you know how I feel about that game.
    A bit tough getting abuse by 'experienced players' when it's still in beta, sounds like another good reason to give it a miss.

    I had a look at it & it looks like a goer, so I've paid the $13 & got it, just about to give it a go.

    It's actually good fun Fez, the graphics are a bit dated, looks like it's in unreal or 1/2 life type engines, but the game play is pretty good, love the moving from trench to trench & especially no friggin' span guns :)

    Yeah, I've had a few more goes at it too. Enjoyed it each time. Like the rifle deathmatch for some quick fun :)

    They've released an update, improved graphics is the biggy, improved connection to front line play, improved maps & one or two new maps coming next week :). I've been playing a fair bit of it & even with the lag it's a great game & generally a good bunch play it, no abuse, no spamming :)

    Haven't played for a couple of months, but last time I did they'd made some great improvements, will have to have another go as it's had more updates since.
