what they have said is you'll be able to choose from the 200 or so weapons and customise EVERYTHING!

We're not ready to release too much multiplayer related info, though we can say that it's totally going to rock. :D

Some multiplayer specific questions are answered in this thread:
http://alliancethegame.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=38

And there's the general overview at the end of our "The War" subpage.

If you have any specific questions regarding multiplayer, I can try to answer those that are ready to be made public.

There will not be controllable vehicles in Alliance. We're making a realistic infantry combat simulator and we feel that vehicles detract from that, as the game invariably ends up revolving around the vehicles. Don't get me started on plane camping. :)

Yes, but we can't say yet.. We won't reveal the final number until we are certain that a normal dedicated server can handle it.

i got some more questions.....
is there sprint?
night vision?
lets say the mpa is dark and the 2 forces that are playing is our modern army vrs the ww2 army. the modern army would have a greater chance of winning due to the technology? how will you balance this out?

There is a form of sprinting. Not sure on the night vision but I know it was in another thread. Like they said earlier its a what if scenario. like ww2 vs modern. To even things out you would have more people on the side with the worst weapons.

You will be able to sprint and there is night vision in Alliance.

As for balancing, other than for any predefined loadout scenarios that we define, the servers can control exactly what the gametype will look like. You don't necessarily have to face off as two groups from different timeperiods if you don't want to.

Minute balancing between groups of vastly different capabilities will be handled by having the less powerful team have greater numbers. Regarding the night vision in multiplayer with teams from different eras, the loadouts can be constrained such that no team is allowed to use night vision in that case, or you can use daylight settings for the maps.
