Ground Branch

Post by Hairy Frog » Sat Dec 15, 2018 12:18 pm

A tactical fps directly inherited from Rainbow Six Raven Shield ... and developped by the same team

https://www.groundbranch.com/

The game is available on Steam

It still needs a lot more content and polishing. But a recent update to the AI changed it quite a lot.

Then be carefull, only the servers where the AI parameters have been worked up by the admins are really playable. The row ones are ridiculously hard.

For those who have already given it a try : the bots are now patrolling. They can react by overturning and surprise you charging behind your cover, so never feel safe for a too long time, or you may receive an perpetual deny ;) . They very often go and check suspicious event.

If you want to see that, I recommend the following server, that has very often several players in :

MilsimBreach Semi-Realistic

It is still a bit too easy for my taste, though still challenging. I use to have a nice experience each time I'm conected

For the ones who already own GB : it is time to give it another try. The bots are patrolling, and their behaviour is really fine. But do not expect to go head on, cause they will always try to flank you and are using cover and doge tactics

The bots a VERY dangerous

A new build has been released :

https://steamcommunity.com/games/16900/ ... 7052370108


Huge improvement in the bots behaviour, check the video: they are moving all the time, checking any supicious event, covering each other, calling for alarm and backup.

The more it goes, the more it is enjoying to play slow and safe.

The AI is from now on not far from the one of Sandstorm in terms of behaviour quality, thus giving a very different gameplay
