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.

I believe every game or mod switches to the newest version, in this case 3.5.4

will there be some destruction similar to Battlefield and Such? I used to hate playing Battlefield 1942 and sit in a Tiger firing at a building and Nothing happening.

The German characters are going extremely well but the sheer amount of variation which existed in the German army means we aren't quite ready to show them to the community.

Frankly I'm sick of the amount of work the Germans have behind them (in other words it's going very well! :D )

Afraid not. We aren't planning a closed alpha/beta at the moment but that may change in the future. IF we do then we'll make an announcement over at first before third-party sites such as here.

Oh, hey guys? The ever important question for every FPS game: If you look down, can you see your own legs and feet? :P

Almost anything is possible with the CryENGINE 3. :)

Answer to your question: yes! ;)
