The Somme - WWI FPS

Stand down soldier.

Today we take a break from the harsh winter cold and huddle around candle light to take a look at some of the latest progress from the team. We have a music sample and new promotional media to warm your mud drenched toes. First up check out some music produced by the very talented Chase Bethea. The track is entitled 'The Somme Needs You!'.

Next up and if you missed them this week, check out the latest work from our resident artist Paul.

News from the front line:

Thanks to the efforts and votes from all our followers old and new we were able to secure a Greenlight on Steam within the month we featured. This is truly humbling to us. Considering all the hard work we put into making this project become a reality it is amazing to know we have you all behind us as we begin to push forward. One of the benefits of being Greenlit meant an invitation to the 'Steam Dev Days' exclusive conference event being held in Seattle in January which we will be attending.

Progress is being made in all departments with more art and design insights coming in the near future. Hit follow on any of our media sites to make sure you catch the latest from our team.

Soldiers, you've had your rest, now take up your arms and vote for The Somme to win IOTY!

Apparently the PlayStation 4 is giving indie developers a bigger chance to make games for consoles. Giving you guys any ideas? :)

P.S. Please, no console wars in the comments, I don't want to start an argument! XD

I'd like to see a Villers-Brettonneux map with my Australians, it'd be really nice to see some aussies in a game for once.

I don't want to sound like a whiny child, but is there any news coming soon? It's just that the suspense is too strong! XD

How about Italy? or Russia? could all be interesting but this mod is only for the Western Front primarily in the British area, hence the name 'The Somme'.

The Devs have previously stated that 'The Somme' is just a name.

That's why they're including an Eastern Front map too :D
