Traction Wars - WW2 realistic FPS
« on: 05-12-2012, 04:12:01 »
As I'm sure many of you know, Traction Wars is an upcoming indie game on Cryengine 3 covering the commonwealth forces in Normandy. If I remember correctly, some of the FH2 team is also working on the game. Even though the name sounds like it should be a physics game, it looks promising. Their first release will not feature vehicle combat, however.

It's been in development for years now, and is IMO definitely one of the most promising next generation WW2 games :D

Me and Mudra have been doing research for this mod, even though I'm getting a bit too busy with RL stuff to really actively contribute. Glad to see some publicity here.

Also, don't forget to vote for us on IndieDB  :)

Initially it was to be some Steampunk mod, but IIRC they couldn't get the rights to the universe they wanted to mod it for, thus they chose WW2

When it's done. After all these years with FH2/PR/other mods I sort of expect people to understand that now. It's a small team and we are starting from scrap.


Why the name Traction Wars? I mean, traction? wut

It was originally a mod about a steampunk book series but switched several times. Sadly it was not possible to get permission to make a mod about this universe so to avoid legal problems they swapped one more time. Ironically; to avoid confusing the people even more they stuck with the name back then. But we'll have some damn fine physics to make up for that.

I love how it went from Steampunk universe to realistic WW2 FPS :D

Traction wars does look very, very promising :)

The landscape looks holy zomfgzorzuber gorgeous!!!

I'm definitely going to join their forums and start getting active. You know, help the mod gain some traction. Zing!

How far along in the development process are you guys? Just ballpark estimates... Still tweaking the engine? building up content? I know the whole "it's done when it's done..." I'm just curious how things are going.
