Immersive WWII squad combat simulator. 80 people on a server, 40 a side, although they are talking about expanding it to a 100. There's no ranks, skins, microtransactions, or any of that bullshit. At the end of the game you just see your own stats, and four MVPs and that's it. Onto the next one. It's exciting as fuck and if you're not careful it eats your time. It is made with the Unreal engine and I am told it is very similar to Squad, which I haven't played.9 posts omitted. Click reply to view.
The game has several game modes, but the most popular one is offensive. Where you capture enemy objectives by taking over the point. The maps and locations are as true to history as they can be, they re-created the locations from maps, aerial photos from the time, stuff like that. Weapons available are the ones available to that side at that battle. And yes, there are tanks. You can play as the Wehrmacht, Waffen-SS, US airborne, British airborne or French infantry (in 1940 iirc).
It's a real team game and communication and cooperation are necessary. You have a squad leader who commands his squad of 9 people, who can be riflemen, medic, light and heavy machine gunner, mortar, AT, sapper, radio, with the special classes divided among the squads. There are also armored squads, for driving tanks, because you need 2-3 people to operate a tank. There are also logistic squads, who have to set up forward operating bases, vehicle repair stations, supply stations, defenses, mortars, etc. The maps are huge, and you get a sense of a battle on a large scale.
Only downside is that the team developing it said they don't have enough money to add the Eastern Front battles to the game. But they have had modding only since December 2020, so probably in the future we can expect that someone will make some Eastern Front maps.
Do any of you play? I think it would be cool to get a leftist clan going in this game.
havent played it but i love Squad, ive heard PS and Beyond The Wire are pretty barebones and underdeveloped at this point
Wrong, it's the best setting.>>7302>barebone
It may have some bugs, but PS is a fully functional game. They've only had modding for two months, so expect other maps, units and battles in a bit, someone already made a new map/battle and added it to the workshop.
BF2 still has an active playerbase with BF2HUB. We definitely should organise something, or at least have a weekly gaming session.

oh ok thats good to know, how does it compare to Hell Let Loose?
really my biggest (admittedly very autistic) issue with it is that its only the western front, pretty unforgivable sin imo for any ww2 game billing itself as in any way more authentic to focus so much on american infantry in europe. red orchestra had it right to make europe USSR vs Nazi and save the americans for the pacific in the first Rising Storm, which was the far more interesting american part of the war anywayalso i just hate playing as nazis, a bit petty considering i dont mind playing as like the US in Squad but w/e
btw, does anyone on here play Squad? should i make a new thread for it? would be nice to fill out a squad with some /leftypol/ lads
