News Update #21:
Opel Blitz

Hello and welcome to the Update #21 from Traction Wars. This time we have would like to share a new vehicle created by [TWDEV] Sir Apple since our last update.

Firstly for this update we would like to offer a very warm welcome to [TWDEV] Nurrti as a Level Designer. Welcome aboard to you! We are looking for more new team members so if your interested or just curious about joining the team then take a look to see which positions are currently open and to find out more about the team.

The Opel Blitz was used throughout the Second World War as the main supply and troop truck of the Wehrmacht and SS. It was a reliable pack-horse, and capable of hauling up to 3 tons of men and supplies. As most of the most successful German vehicles, the Opel Blitz saw use in a mass variety of roles; from its designed purpose for supply and transport, to servicing, AA, a halftrack version (the Opel Maultier) that was used for heavy transport such as artillery, and even as a rocket launcher in its own right. All in all, it was a highly successful vehicle, which saw service on every front of the European and Mediterranean theatres of operation.

We released a statement regarding the Cry Engine 3 topic as we are commonly asked this :)

Team Statement:
"The release of the CRYENGINE SDK presents the team with a exciting opportunity to push the boundaries of Traction Wars beyond what is possible as a Crysis Wars mod. However the information about the SDK is currently quite limited so at this stage we cannot make an informed decision. So in short - the option is being considered but we don't know... yet!"
