Squad Free Weekend

Steam News announces a free weekend is underway for Squad, offering the chance for you an 99 of your closest friends to face off in 50 vs 50 combat in this early access shooter. The game is on sale for half-off until Monday in case this works for you. Here's the pitch:

Squad is a 50 vs 50 multiplayer first-person shooter that aims to capture combat realism through communication and teamplay, emphasizing both strong squad cohesion mechanics as well as larger scale coordination, tactics and planning. It features large open maps, vehicle-based combined arms gameplay, and player-constructed bases to create a heart-thumping, visceral gaming experience which mixes organized tactical multi-squad planning with split second decision-making in real-world scale firefights.

I was going to try it til I saw it's mp only. Too bad.

I doubt we will ever see a game dev that can do large scale AI for a large open shooter, much less with needing detailed command structure. I cringe when I say this because DICE did a pretty good job of it with BF2 but I think, as far as I know (few exceptions of course, Angels Fall First) we will probably never see this happen.
