Title: Battle Cry of Freedom Announced!
Post by: Olafson on October 17, 2012, 07:21:53 pm
We are very happy that we have finally come to the point where we can announce our next project. The new game, which has the working title “Battle Cry of Freedom” is going to be a standalone title developed by our team alone. We are already in full process of developing the game.

Set during the exciting era of the American Civil War, players will immerse themselves in unique and rewarding tactical gameplay based on two teams fighting each other.
Utilising a wide range of weaponry, from long range rifled muskets and devastating artillery, to various deadly close combat tools such as bayonets, knives and muskets, players will take up the fight for the North or the South trying to win the day on the bloody battlefields of America.

The game will feature a large amount of players simultaneously fighting each other on the same battlefield in a completely destructible and realistic Civil War combat environment, rendered in beautiful up-to-date graphics. Our best efforts will be taken to ensure “Battle Cry of Freedom” provides highly enjoyable and balanced gameplay for the best American Civil War experience the market has to offer.

Please go to the Media section to take a look at some more early Pre-Alpha Screenshots. If you want to know more about the games concept continue reading in the "About the game" section. We will frequently update it every few weeks and new stuff will be added soon.

Feel free to discuss the Announcement here!

They were a bit OP.

Considering how good the FSE guys are we should be on a good way to not have a pistol that can kill a whole line.

Could you imagine Gettysburg without cavalry? The actions at day 1 and day 3 deserve cavalry! But at 90 % of the time, you had dismounted cavalry units.

Wasnt pure and actual Cavalry more of a scouting force then a full fledged combat force during these days?

Indeed. But the cavalry had two tasks: Scouting the enemy movements and protecting the flanks of the moving army.
But in many battles, they took position of important objectives of the battlefield and defended the first waves, til the main body of infantry arrived.

But you did not see many cavalry charges on horse backs, like back in the napoleonic age.

Cavalry would be something that can not be added, in my opinion.

Post by: Gokiller on November 11, 2012, 05:04:45 pm
Cavalry would be something that can not be added, in my opinion.

Why? I think it would ruin a part of the game. You know that it was because Lee's Cavalry was gone, they attacked the Union positions at Gettysburg. While they barely had any idea what was infront of them? As he said himself many times. Without the Cavalry, the Army of Northern Virginia was blind.

Well I mean, I feel Cavalry was much more popular in MM than NW. Only some Cavalry regiments left at the moment but they are another aspect of the game that other people might enjoy. I understand though that it's sometimes quite annoying in LB's where the Cav attacks in LB's and just harasses/destroys your line.

Well, seeing how good firearms ought to be in this game, Fending of cavalry will very likely be very easy, Not that something beeing irritating is reason enough for it to be removed.
And besides, imagine beeing pinned down by enemy artillery, what wouldnt you do to have a squadron of friendly cavaliers to help you out?

You actually need cavalry in that game now.
You need about 30 minutes to get from one map corner to the other. In huge line battles, you need your cavalry to scout the enemy movements, otherwise your army will be doomed ;)

Yes we'll rally round the flag, boys, we'll rally once again,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom,
We will rally from the hillside, we'll gather from the plain,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!

The Union forever! Hurrah, boys, hurrah!
Down with the traitor, up with the star;
While we rally round the flag, boys, rally once again,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!

We are springing to the call of our brothers gone before,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!
And we'll fill our vacant ranks with a million freemen more,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!

The Union forever! Hurrah, boys, hurrah!
Down with the traitor, up with the star;
While we rally round the flag, boys, rally once again,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!

We will welcome to our numbers the loyal, true and brave,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!
And although they may be poor, not a man shall be a slave,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!

The Union forever! Hurrah, boys, hurrah!
Down with the traitor, up with the star;
While we rally round the flag, boys, rally once again,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!

And will that shout sing over the hills and valleys of the USA! Into the minds of soldier and citizen alike, and into the bodies of the American people, it will bring out the best of every man, woman and child and deliver to us a unity the likes of which the world has never seen before; a unity that will bind the hearts and souls of the people, man and women, black and white, North and South! Weave them into a web of security and happiness, so that we shall know war no more.

The best of luck to Vincenzo, Olafson, Beaver, and Admiral. They are FSE, a company, but their true loyalties lie within us: the community, and so let us spur them on so they may spur us and themselves to greatness.

 I think that's reaaally early to ask... it would all depend on the time period. Whether they want to start at the beginning, at the end, somewhere in the middle, or portray all of the war, that's up to them. They'll probably add the units accordingly.

 Just a hunch, but I don't think that's in consideration yet... it's still early in development. Perhaps I'm wrong though, and will soon be corrected by the developers...

 (Great thing to bring up Xeroth, I'm hoping to see it on Steam, personally. Seeing a similar "game ownership" system as on Taleworlds would be nice, too.)

 I think you're over assuming. I think what you're referring to is a specific game mode. I don't think the "LB's as we know it" will go away, but I think new possibilities can be made.

We probably wont have lines standing up straight and shooting, but 'm 100% certain we will still see the same organized battles, especially now that they are more than twice the big as we can do it now.

Yes, of course!

However, If you have any ideas on how to revolutionize our beloved line battles feel free to create a thread on the forums or send us a PM with the details.

Any set date for a beta or the full game itself?? Or even just a general estimate of when it will be released?

Hey friends, I would like to share with you my opinion how 500 slots battles will look like
*snip*
Still hope that it'll be better than I expect. Good luck.

Do not post potentially offensive (and off-topic) material on these forums.

The link he posted was not what he said it was. It was potentially offensive and went against forum rules,  which is why I removed it from his post.

Which will help Vince and the rest of the staff relax, so they can throw their minds at the project with even more quality!

Any new dev blogs planned? I'm liking the progress of game, seeing Bannerlord on the same engine inspires some confidence in things you guys can do.

I tink Bannerlord runs on an updated Mount & Blade engine doesn't it? While BCOF runs on UNITY engine.

Indeed. Every engine has its problems, but I can say, Warband is way worse than Unity.
Unity is nice, easy to work with and fast.

Making a new engine, just for BattleCry would not only take long to make and be very expensive, but we would probably never get an Engine done, that is as good as Unity. Or even Warband.
Title: Re: Battle Cry of Freedom Announced!
Post by: Rejenorst on October 23, 2013, 02:51:27 pm
Its not feasible to create an engine as a new company. Its far to risky given the amount of bugs and fixing that would have to be done. Bare in mind that Warband alone took several years to complete for a husband and wife team so using an existing engine is a far safer and time effective solution.

Unity should be good especially with Occlusion Culling.

What brought you to choose Unity ? Did you try the UDK ?
Title: Re: Battle Cry of Freedom Announced!
Post by: Olafson on October 23, 2013, 10:38:26 pm
I do not like UDK. It takes long to create stuff, and its more or less limited to shooters. You can do other games on it, but that requires more work.
I do not like working in UDK. It has nice lightning and all, but it is not really what we wanted.

Crynengine is much nicer, easy to work with and you can get great results in no time. We would have liked to work with Cryengine, but we decided for Unity.

Why? Well... Unity is more or less the only Engine which had a good network documentation. There is almost no information about Cryengine and networking, some goes for UDK, and all UDK and Cryengine projects we saw were tailored for 64 or less players.

Besides that, Unity has a great asset store, making it easy to buy and integrate new features, models, sounds etc. It is a heaven for Indie Developers.

yea it seems like unity is meant more for large scale battles and destructible environment which i will take over looking pretty and mean come on we been playing on warband engine for what 5 years now and we are still playing on it for the 200 man line battles and destructible environments and still deal with those pretty faces animations we all love xD.

HAHA good luck getting this mod out I'm quite sure the veiled stars will follow suite possibly. But it won
t succeed because it never gets projected and doesn't grab people's attentions. Best make this mod the best you can and hope it gets good public opinion or else I'm not playing it
