About American Civil War: Brothers vs. Brothers with 4 comments by ACWDevelopmentTeam on Dec 26th, 2014

After another long period of waiting and another almost complete roster change of the ACW Team, we bring you

3.6 Open Beta

of American Civil War: Brothers vs. Brothers

(still crashy and buggy for now, but we're always fixing things,
to bring you a better version when we can)

3.6 Open Beta


Detailed install info here:

Current build of 3.6 Open Beta supports Warpath map based ACW campaign only.
However, users who don't own Warpath can still play the custom battles and a limited RTI campaign with all the new units!

Also, remember this is a BETA of 3.6, so several features aren't working and the installation is not smooth. Unfortunately there is also a likely campaign crash present, but you can use older campaign files for a more stable build.

In the current 3.6 beta, research is disabled, but we're hoping to implement it in 3.7

very true..... i was very disappointed...... my 50 dollars was not well spent... and steam constantly makes it lag for me when i try to run it, along with the fact that for some reason i can get the graphics in medieval 2 to be amazing compared to empire total war.

the best i can make empire go without lagging is low shader quality, and almost all textures at medium.....
and that makes their guns look like sticks

on medieval 2 i can turn everything literally to top quality, it doesn't lag, and it's fantastic.....

Well the latest patch doubled performance for all users.

Doesn't that say anything to you? 3-4 months after release, they released a patch that double performance, imagine how much better reviews would of been if that had been in release?

It's just when a game gets released buggy, it's hard to forget.

"Doesn't that say anything to you?"

That tells me that they are good developers, who even long after release, and knowing that reviews will not be any better because of it [altogether with not have any notable increase in sales], they still work on making the experience better for their current community.

The fact is they released it without it, and easily could have. They're just doing it to cover their ***** so people will buy the next one.

The Reviews were fantastic for the game, citing the technical issues were minor. It was just a rushed release on their part, you can ask anyone.

Poor performance, bug ridden, not as fun as M:TW2, and AI is still as bad as the older ones. When a unit cannot figure out how to get around a building, it is a sad day. :P

Seriously guys, get yer crap together. ;P

Better looking but honestly plays way worse than MDTW 2 and having essentially the same 9 or 10 units in every country is DULL

Man, I wish this would've had hotseat campaigns. I had so much fun teaming up on France with my friends. Oh well, maybe in an expansion.
