Team work dependency is key without it you will fall to feet of your foes. Listen out for orders from your commanding officer. Which role are you? You decide!

Afternoon trench rats,
We want to thank everybody who voted in the poll to decide the next official media release. Here is the winner. The Russian infantry soldier!
We did want to confirm for those whom are interested. The Eastern Front will be included in The Somme as part of the multi-emotion setting we're aiming for. The Somme will eventually feature as many possible factions as it can handle and have the characters diverse. In the up-coming months we will be featuring content from the variety of 'heads' of the infantry soldiers, this ranges from Sikh/Indian soldiers to Japanese soldiers!
Regarding The Somme's kickstarter, the video capture is done and we're in the process of putting it all together and once we have finalized that, The Somme's kickstarter will be live. We know a lot of people are anticipating The Somme's kickstarter and we want it to be as full-filling as possible; we have a sneaky surprise for one of our highest backers too!
We hope you enjoy the Russian Soldier media release and if you want to visit the image in better resolution, visit our IndieDb gallery or click the image above!
