Might be of interest, especially to the ex-Planetside folks.

Isometric multiplayer war game kind of like Running With Rifles, but slower paced and deeper. You fight over a large campaign map rather like Planetside, with each area on the map having its own battlefield. The battlefield maps are quite large, felt like running across Britannia the other night when I forgot to set my spawn point at the front and spawned all the way on the other side of the map.

Everything is built by the players. Every bullet, gun, shell, rifle, first aid kit etc required someone to mine resources and craft it. This gives the game a sense of seriousness I seldom see in other games. People (well most) are actually careful with their vehicles and other expensive gear cause it takes so long to make it.

Combat is kind of wonky due to the isometric view, but so far my experiences have been fun because teamwork is pretty much essential. You won't get very far lone-wolfing here. Had a great fight the other night driving a halftrack with 2 other guys crewing the gun and doing medic/repair. We managed to get 4 tracks together, and about 2 squads of infantry, and charged out of our gate sweeping all before us, dead enemy everywhere. Until their tank showed up. Our side didn't have tanks yet.

Reminds me a lot of the old days of Planetside 1. Thought it might be a good fit here. Still in EA, but I picked it up on sale for $12 and have easily gotten my money's worth.

Watch some YouTube on it, see what ya think. Currently on sale during the Steam Winter sale.
