Soldier of Fortune 2 Multiplayer Test!

Got my hands on the multiplayer test that has been distributed to game reviewers and magazines (don't ask)

SWEET MOTHER OF FUCK AND ALL THAT IS HOLY.

This game looks fucking unreal. Runs like the wind with all the details cranked. It's based on the quake3 engine. Graphics quality is gorgeous. There are a ridiculous amount of player skins to choose from (I think the final will have something like 100 in it). Multiplayer games include the usual suspects (deathmatch, team deathmatch, etc.) as well as some new games to try. So far only one map included for obvious reasons (an office complex where one team has to swipe a package of documents and make it to a helicopter for extraction, the other team defends at all costs). You get your choice of a primary AND secondary weapon, on top of a pistol, grenade and accessory (armor, night vision goggles, etc.). FINALLY. A game with up to date weapons. You can not only pistol whip someone but use your secondary weapon (i.e. shotgun) to bash in someone's skull. You can throw knives just like in the first SOF. There are standard weapons profiles for a variety of different team roles (sniper, soldier, commando and amusingly enough thug). Furthermore it seems like they REALLY paid attention to details with the configuration settings that are available...even though this is a test it seems you have access within the game to a lot of options you normally need to hack into other games.

I so can't fucking wait until this thing is out there for real. I'd be happy to send this to whomever is interested so that we can get some multiplayer action going until the real thing is out there. This looks like it could take over the throne from MOH as the crack rock of choice for FPS junkies.

Screenshots to follow.

Gladly! It'll be great to kick your ass all over the map in yet another game.

More observations:

- In Team Death match you can't select a weapon profile but you can PICK UP ANY WEAPON YOU COME ACROSS. And you're not limited to just 1 or 2. If you manage to stay alive long enough to acquire a whole arsenal you can use all of them!

- oh my fucking god, they have a full auto shotgun

- ran it in 1600x1200 with zero graphics related lag whatsoever

If you don't mind hooking me up Deep, My ICQ should be connected at home and I should still have you on auto receive and auto accept in n/a.

That screen looks gorgeous!

Can't say about respawn rate, since this is a multiplayer test and if I'm not playing with someone I can't kill anyone to find out

Took a pile of screen caps, here they come

I might have to uninstall MOH to make room for this bad boy. How big is the multiplay demo deep?

I'll be home around 3:30 this afternoon if you need an oponent.

RPG rocket launcher, motherfucker . Hopefully Raven has been smart enough to make it such that if anyone launches a rocket within 20 feet of themselves they'll die, unlike MOH, which is rocket twat friendly

M3A1 secondary submachine gun. Pretty interesting. Seems like the rounds it fires pack a wallop, but rate of fire pretty slow. Kind of like an assault friendly sniper rifle.

Burst mode on the M4. Man I like this rifle. See how tight the cluster of fire is? You can switch from single to burst to full auto.

Shot of the sniper scope & crosshairs. Aiming system seems very very smooth and precise.

You won't have to uninstall anything, the multiplayer test is tiny - around 50 megs.

swenard, what's your connection speed? If it's lesser than what Otis has got, I'll send to Otis and then you guys can PM him for the login/pass or links to get it. Sending it off a T1 is a lot faster than one person sending it out by cable one by one.
