The Battle of the Somme symbolised the horrors of warfare in world war one. Follow orders, fight for your country, survive in rain soaked trenches and wait for the call; the call to chargeover no man's land to fight for freedom and liberation. Equipped with your arsenal of weaponry, make haste and overtake your enemies; watch over your brothers and god speed. As a soldier in The Somme you are challenged to overtake your enemy's forces. 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! From the Medic class and being able to help wounded allies, to being an Officer, taking command to spot targets and mark them on your map to create devastation to your enemies forces with Artillery barrage.

The Somme - WWI FPS

Good afternoon Trench Rats.

Video footage *gasp*. We have started to open a little more up to our loyal fans and community. In the up-coming weeks, videos will be appearing on TopHat's YouTUBE page - most of which will be documenting The Somme and showing some of our internal alpha weaponry, animations and much more! We're wanting to do this not only to show the community how work is looking, but in preporation for The Somme's Kickstarter. The video is near completed now, thus meaning the Kickstarter is on the very horizon.

Here is our latest video, the 'alpha' animations for the German Luger. Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for consistent updates!

That's all for now - make sure to follow us on Twitter for our actively seeking positions. Unreal Scripter and Russian translator are just a couple!

Thank you.

Weren't soldiers trained to fire their weapons one-handed? Not for show or anything but it was just how it was then? Sorry if I'm wrong. I mean, these animations are so beautiful. The team should be proud to have such an awesome animator.

There's a reason why it's both-handed. You'll find out eventually! :)
