There are many new features compared to the normal game, like much improved animations with new moves, new units and weapons, and replacements for the BIS units so you can play the campaigns with WW4 content. And that is only scratching the surface of this great mod, more detail can be found in the forum topic listed above.
Also worth noting is the patch that Sanctuary released. This solves some of the issues with the original release.
Changelog of the patch:
-fixed : WW4 West Recon troops have their complete wound texture now
-fixed : the turret of the WW4 West HMMWV in 1st person view is now turning correctly
-fixed : the East WW4 Armor BTR999 floats a bit higher on water to prevent nearly invincibility against missiles
-fixed : the strange bug that made the M202A1 flash launcher to crash when firing for some people
-added : a rocket launcher version of the M202A1 (West -> Men -> Flash Grenadier 2 )
-fixed : the Javelin/Vympel/SMAW left a wrong model for when you put down a missile, went back to default OFP model
-fixed : the AN-94+PSO had a very badly defined firemode that was crashing the game when switching to it.
-modified : increased every bullets damage by 0.5, it's a subtle change so the impact is not too much on the WW4 type of gameplay i want, but it allows some more balancing with the armor system.
-added : Ammo crates for West, East and Everon weapons, available in Empty -> WW4 Ammo
-modified : WW4 Cars use now the same machinegun as the WW4 Armors
-fixed : wrong unitinfotype for the WW4 BRDM that was not displaying the ammo count
