Twas the night before Christmas...

Christmas is a time where we like to have a bit of fun, and we've taken a few hours out of serious development to add some Christmas cheer to our Merville Battery map that we previewed earlier this year. [TWDEV] Maniche and [TWDEV] calgoblin have put Merville to a very festive use with this short holiday video...

We hope you all enjoyed our little piece of fun. From everyone on the Traction Wars Team we hope you all have a very Happy Christmas.

Well, in a way it may never be finished, new updates and chapters are planned for the future. But yes, it will be playable for sure, it just takes longer as we develop it in our spare time.

Well the best game I've ever played is Project Reality and it's technically a mod that guys make in their free time/for free, so as long as there is motivation then that's a good sign

Project Reality is awesome though, I like Forgotten Hope 2 better - mainly because of the time period (WW2). :)

FH2 was great too, I just wish the PR had the WW2 mode put in it like how it has the Vietnam one too.

traction war and festung europe are two indie ww2 games on the cryengine with near identical art quality, goals, and design choices.

just wanted to mention this. because twice the people developing one game seems more optimal than half the people producing 2 separate games

festung hasn't made a single update in over half a year, and they keep advertising themselves as the developers of darkest hour... but the darkest hour devs went on to develop rising storm!

festung europa is a write off.

I must agree with you though sadly both teams have very different goals. One of them is that Traction Wars is going to be free and the other payed.

But maybe having a bit of competition is good (:
