FSE : Battle Cry of Freedom
« on: November 11, 2012, 12:24:06 PM »
Battle Cry Of Freedom

So, the secret standalone project by Flying Squirrel Entertainment (Vincenzo & Co) has been announced. American Civil War? Damn nice! I've not been satisfied by any of Warband mods that claim to reflect this turbulent period of history. Despite being thoroughly English, the ACW is incredibly interesting and I would typically be chomping at the bit to play this. Reserving judgement until we see examples of "massive multiplayer battles, a realistic combat system, completely destructible environments, and up to date graphics". NW didn't really break the scene with anything revolutionary - much of what is included in the mod/DLC has been found in other free mods. Whether or not FSE can produce a quality, standalone game is yet to be seen. Screenshots are currently looking pretty much like-for-like against Warband so far. It'll be interesting to see how it pales against Bannerlord. Still, it'll be one to watch and possibly purchase if it lives up to the period.

Fortunately, it also means that Vincenzo will possibly be disappearing from these forums. If only he wrote the real reasons as to why they're relocating (again).

Twas expected. Though what I don't expect is it to have the success NW did. Their own community will love the game though.

Indeed, I won't be holding my breath over this one.

Best of luck to them. It seems to be an interesting project, especially with the destructible environment and all. Guess I'll be testing it in the beta. :P

In the case you're drunk and somebody rapes you it's your fault for entering that mind state.

I'm not sure how they intend to make the game have 'up to date graphics' with 500 players on a 5x5km map and having it all playable on a low-end computer, but it is still something that I will be looking out for and hopefully it will be something interesting.

Could be fun... 500 players seem to be the yummiest feature of it all. If Mount and Blade 2 can have 500 players...

Because NW was supposed to have 250 players, 200+ unique units (Not slightly different uniforms), historically accurate music and many other things. In the end, it was pretty disappointing. I have nothing against ACW though, and I hope this will be better.

Warband actually has 3D voice chat via Mumble if I remember correctly. But that's neither here nor there...

Based on the community revolving around NW, I think voice chat is a horrible, horrible idea.

I agree, false promises shouldn't be fired around if couldn't be met.. Though, the engine used was pretty old.
