Very early access, but combat seems like it will be "satisfying".

Wow. Only watched a few minutes so far, but the weapons modeling is amazing.

Not sure it's smart to throw a potato masher into a second story window though. Good way to have bounce back into your face if you miss.

Yeah - it's a mod of Squad.  As such, I'm really looking forward to it, but no joy for the single-player crowd.

This is not a "mod" of squad as far I can tell. Although, the concept is obviously similar.

That first Jeep scene looked like the Jeep was a hover car.  Wish my car rode that smooth on the road, let alone cross country.

This started as a mod for squad but I think it has grown into a stand alone game.

Weird name. I know... we complain about generic war game names.

Watch the video. The developers explain the name...doesn't make it any less awkward, though...lol

  The designers mention using various aspects of the squad "core" so it has some definite relation to squad.  In any case it looks promising!

Operation Market Garden FPS shooter. It certainly looks good. But I am not interested if it is not better than RO2 at the very least where realism and fidelity is concerned. That is where I set the bar. If this was just Heroes and Generals again... it's a no go.

Squad is a pretty realistic modern combat shooter. You can’t see who’s shooting at you and die easily. ;)
Squad had pretty elaborate radio communications. But WW2 should be simple shouting.

They say "Post Scriptum is a WW2 simulation game, focusing on historical accuracy, large scale battle, difficult learning curve and an intense need for cohesion, communication and teamwork. "
I am now officially excited.

P.S. Ww2 has radios dammit! But during market garden the british had endless trouble with their ones iirc!

I don't know anything about modern radio nets, but simulating a WWII radio net would be a game in itself.
