TACTICS • TEAMWORK • REALISM
http://www.tractionwas.com


Brief Description of the Project:
Traction Wars is a Free2Play WWII Tactical Teamplay Realism Game. The game brings a vivid and realistic representation of the Second World War to your screens using the stunning CRYENGINE EaaS version, utilizing the latest in technology from Crytek. The game dynamics & balancing are designed to inspire a teamwork orientated tactical style of gameplay which rewards players who work together.

Traction Wars is an indie studio consisting of 20+ highly active and motivated individuals that work on the project for free in their spare time.

Current Progress:
During our "Road to OVERLORD" news series, we recently revealed a tentative release date of Chapter 1: OVERLORD to be 18-24 months from now, with some of the many core mechanics already in place. We are now pushing Closed Beta which we hope to achieve in the early part of next year.

Almost certainly no to both. Our focus is on the prize - which is the public release of Chapter One in hopefully 18-24 months time.

ANSWER:

At the present time vehicles are not expected to be included in the release of OVERLORD however it is still possible that a limited number of vehicles will make the first release.

We have started working on vehicles as making them realistic will take some time but OVERLORD will take priority until release

The game is divided up into chapters. Chapter One is infantry only as we don't have time to do tanks and infantry properly in the time frame we've set ourselves. We love tanks though so you can be sure that they will be appearing in a future chapter.
