1.40 update released!

Hey Runners!

In RWR, you have been told that you are just one among thousands.
That may have been true until today with the Man vs. World mode! This time you're completely on your own, with nothing but your wits and tenacity to win you through.
You've got only one life, no respawning - yes, that's permadeath! The enemies follow the same rule, so at least there's a hypothetical chance for you to make it...
There is also a "Veteran" difficulty with FoV activated for those who want to push the challenge to an extreme!
Find the mode in the campaign start menu, check it out and see how far you can get!



And that's not all, Runners! The update features a new 3-faction map called Iron Enclave in Online Invasion!
You'll find a lot of vehicles, flanking enemies and other interesting surprises in this brand new map!




Below you can find a complete list of changes for version 1.40:

  • vehicles: grenade launcher Humvee added - replaced the radio call Humvee. Map specific Humvee will remain with a MG

“Average community rating”
9.5/10 – Desura

“Running with Rifles is the kind of game that you think you know how to play, but after you die a dozen times in a row you'll realize it's not actually about running around with rifles. [...] This ain't no arcade game!”
Co-Optimus

“This game stands out as a truly iconic shooter. With the vast range of gameplay aspects as well as the addictive style and pace, this game is truly one of a kind. War games have been done before, but never to such a free and open extent.”
10/10 – TheSmilingArsonist @ Desura

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!
