Hello, ladies and gentlemen! Inqubi, the leader of Combined Arms, has published Combined Arms 1.02 moments ago. For those who are not acquainted with it, Combined Arms is a mod for OpenRA that emulates the old Command & Conquer games gameplay and brings five factions to the battlefield: Allies, Soviets, GDI, Nod, and Scrin. It features new units and support powers for these factions. It also features new graphics and sound effects. Here are the updates from Combined Arms 1.02:
