Post Scriptum - WW2 Squad

Post by Age. » Wed Aug 22, 2018 9:05 am

Bought and played some Post Scriptum. Discovered that it's basically Squad but WW2, which I kind of knew anyway.

It's good and bad. But interesting. Some really nice design features and some weird ones. For example, stamina is used for running but also walking, aiming etc will drain it. You can replenish it with a canteen or taking a nice long lie down in thick grass.

Most kits use a bolt action rifle. Standard and logical. I like it. You need to chamber a new round each time you fire. So two clicks of the mouse button. I like that. Feels authentic.

In tanks, you need multiple people to control it. Sure, you can drive one on your own, but it takes ages to change seats and views and limited. You can open them up for a better view and pop your head out, but you'll likely be shot if you do (I killed a few people that way) - tank immobilised!

Other highlights are things like sound. I noticed that not only do bushes and trees make noise as you brush past them, but you also get stuck on them, slowing you down. The number of times I found an enemy or they found me because of sound too. There I was crawling along a ditch when another chap popped his head up over a verge and shot his pistol at me. Pop, pop, pop, pop down he went. Yes, I was panic firing.

It's a bit complex and certainly not Battlefield, but I think if we had a good number of EBS players it could be amazing.

Its the same source as squad and a sister company of devs, strangely it came out of alpha super quick unlike squad which will never leave :(

we are still waiting in squad for some of the gameplay additions in PS to hit squad which should be in v12 coming soon.

Some of the squad guys have it..

Somehow I missed this thread before. Just caught up on it. Sounds interesting and I quite like the look/sound of it. That vid of the tanks you shared is just terrible though @Age - the bloke was just waaaaaaaaaaaay too dull to hold my interest beyond a minute.

Lol. It was more the mechanics of tank combat than the quality of the video.
