War of Rights is a multiplayer game set during the perilous days of the American Civil War, in the Maryland Campaign of September, 1862. Campfire Games is devoted to presenting the gruesome and glorious elements of the period, while maintaining the highest level of historical accuracy and realism as is possible with the wonders of Cryengine 3. 

Players in the game will be able to play on multiple battlefields of the campaign, from the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers where the Siege of Harper's Ferry took place, to the ridgelines of South Mountain, and to the meandering waters of Antietam Creek at the Battle of Antietam. Additionally, players will also be able to choose from a list of regiments that fought in each battle as well as what rank to fight as, whether they want to slog it out as a lowly private, or if you want to orchestrate the carnage and mayhem as a major general.

Uniforms and bodily features will all be customizable for other players to see as you march and fight in the lines of battle according to the tactics of the period. As a General, you will operate in your headquarters equiped with a map of the battlefield and constantly receiving reports of friendly and enemy positions. Send out new orders to the regiments to move forward, or fall back - all in real time. The orders will move down the chain of command, to the Colonels, Majors, down to the Captains in charge of the individual regiments, all of whom have the option to follow the orders of their trusted commander, or rebel against his wishes and fight as you see fit. 

Each map contains a period reconstruction of the buildings, farms, forests, roads, rocks, and Fancy Flowers that existed so players can fight through the streets of Harper's Ferry, in the wooded heights of Fox's Gap at South Mountain, or in the wheatfields and Bloody Lanes of Antietam. Players can feel the whiz of deadly shot and shell fly by their bodies, or hit their comrades or themselves as they scream in a bloody hail from their wounds. Limbs will fly and blood will be spilt once again as Campfire Games brings the fighting of the Civil War right to the player's computer screen!

Will you heed the Union call against the traitors? Or will you fight to defend your family and livelyhood with the Confederacy? You decide!

Hello and welcome to our fourteenth field report!

A Tour of Antietam

For this field report, we thought we'd give you a rather lengthy treat, as well as a raw, uncut look at one of our featured battlefields: Antietam. The 39 (!) minute video is narrated by our very own historical advisor, GeorgeCrecy - providing you all with plenty of historical context while looking at the scenery. We'd like to (as always) state that what you're about to see is still very much in a form of early development and that everything is subject to change. With that being said, go get a drink, get comfortable and join George on his virtual tour of Antietam - enjoy!

That's all for now - We'll be back in a little while, showing you all some more action packed content.
Until next time, have a good one!

Will buildings be enter-able or are they simply there as a cosmetic purpose?

Most of the buildings are carefully reconstructed after the original blueprints of the real life buildings and will be fully enterable.
