The Somme - WWI FPS

Top of the morning Trench Rats,

We have reached #10 on Greenlight. Thats right, #10, and we couldn't have done it without YOUR votes. We can hardly believe the support and determination shown by our fans and from all of the development team we are truly thankful.

What are you doing soldier? Don’t lay your rifle down, the war will last through the winter. We are not there just yet as we will still require a trench load more votes to keep The Somme highly ranked in order to get Greenlit. We aim to hit this target by the time we launch to Kickstarter.

To thank you for your continued support we are releasing a new concept art wallpaper FREE to download. It depicts the battle of Delville Wood, which will be a playable map upon release.

Battle of Delville Wood - Wallpaper Download

That is all for today soldier! Enjoy the concept art and look forward to more updates soon.

I havn't heard much about this game, or what it's like, but May I suggest adding the following, if not already added.

-Australian Infantry
-Flyable Bi-Planes(I Think that would be amazing)

Now I know that is alot to ask, but there are not many good WWI games out there, but this, from what I heard is the best one so far. Good luck, I hope all gose well. ;)

I don't know about the first one, but the rest are there apparently!
They said before that they're introducing more countries as the game develops, but I wouldn't know.
Stay hopeful though :D

I think they will add the French army after the first release as DLC.
