Squad Commander

April 1st, 2008 by Crusader

ModDB pointed out a new Unreal Tournament 2004 total conversion: Squad Commander. A real-time strategy game, it includes the following features:

  • Class based, squad combat featuring a verity of units including ‘Sarge’ ‘Ranged’, ‘Armour Piercing Ranged’, ‘Assault’ and ‘Defenders’.
  • Level up your units to veteran status to improve their stats and skills.
  • Lasersights fitted on all ranged weapons change colour to show who you troops are targeting and their chance of hitting the target.
  • Receive reinforcements on the fly to replenish your squad mid mission.
  • Fight through 6, story driven, missions, featuring a range of environments a locations.
  • Customisable HUD

My UT2004 install is knackered at the moment, so I wasn’t able to test it fully under Linux, but it should work alright for you if you run

./ucc-bin UModUnpack -x SquadCommander.ut4mod

to install it.

    We need a new term for wholly different types of games built on UE2 that just *happen* to be implemented as ut2004 TCs… CounterStrike is a TC of Half Life, but it’s still a FPS. Things like MetaBall and Unreal Annihilation and this are on another level entirely.

    That said… f*cking AWESOME game. I can’t wait to see where it goes past 1.0
