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).
