I'm confused, who the fuck are Antimatter Games? RO and Rising Storm were made by Tripwire, and basically started off from modding UT2K4 (RO1 and Killing Floor were total conversions that became standalone games). Did they finally split whatever idiots are doing KF2 off from the RO/Rising Storm team?

Has it improved much? Picked it up on launch based on how much I loved Rising Storm (RO2 was good, but I was a goddamn menace with a BAR), but I just couldn't get into it the same way. Everything felt...weird.

>>41189330
>zero news since
They've been regularly posting updates and teased some gameplay a couple months ago
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yr1Jr7ZiQKc

I was really excited for '83 but \what they're selling looks closer to Battlefield than RO2, RS2 or Squad. It looks closer to a Michael Bay film than a real portrayal of something like Able Archer going hot, which is why I'm still more hyped for Escalation
>>
>>41189054
Doesn't look any worse than RS2, and that wasn't too bad. Graphics are always dated on these sorts of games, but the mechanics tend to make up for it.
>>
>>41189424
I mean, the trailer for '83 was just a cinematic, I'd withhold judgement till we see actual gameplay. Besides, Antimatter's bread and butter is realistic shooters that bridge the gap between something like ARMA and Battlefield. I don't think this will be any different.
>>
>>41189428
They've upgraded to UE4, right? That engine can look great. I'm willing to bet we're just seeing a whole lot of WIP assets.
>>
>>41188700
>am i looking forward to a game Made by the devs of Red Orchestra and Rising Storm
absolutely fucking not.
>>
>>41189441
RS2 was considerably more casual than RS1 or RO2, and this is a completely new IP and so far they haven't been advertising this as a "realistic" shooter in any regard. I don't know if '83 plans on being just like RS2 right now, but I wouldn't bet on it.
I mean Eugen went from making Wargame RD to Act of Aggression so it's possible
>>
>>41189482
Well, even if it is more "casual", its nice to see a shooter that isn't set in WW2 or current day tacticool speshul forces.
The persistent battlefield thing sounds neat too, that is if they have the resources and player pool to actually have it mean anything.
>>
>>41189445
Correct, they're running UE4 now

>>41189450
That's just like, your opinion man

>>41189482
I guess that's a fair criticism, but I don't know how much of that "casual" feeling was brought on by the adaptation of a setting with a lot of automatic weapons versus intentional design decisions

>>41189502
I suspect the persistent mode won't be too different from their campaign mode in past games. Who knows?

I have always had a soft spot for the MiG-23, it may have been a mediocre aircraft at best and been 10 years too late to the party (By the time it got to the ML versions at least) just to be greeted by 4th gen aircraft, but to me it is one of the last true Cold War interceptors.
Modern aircraft may be better in every way but they don't share the same combination of brutal simplicity in some areas with complicated features in others as 60s and 70s jets.
