Here's a new project recently announced by one of the Standoff team members. The mod is still in the early stages so there are no screenshots yet, but already has a partial plot written and is promising a massive 64 missions, which will apparently be spread across an introduction and two episodes with a total of eight chapters. With such an ambitious target, it is likely to be some time before we see a full release, particularly as getting missions written seems to be the biggest problem for many of the current projects. Regardless, we wish Red Point luck and look forward to seeing where there project goes. You can find the project's official site here (Spanish) and you can find a rough English translation here. There is also a thread where you can post your thoughts.

Spanish Special Operations are Extra Special
After seeing the Spanish WC2 that Christian Klein recently acquired, the next natural question was whether DROSoft had also localized the Special Operations. The answer is yes, and it comes in an awesome double pack just like the Spanish Secret Missions! Both are in the same box with the game summaries translated side-by-side on the rear of the packaging.
