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.

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 seventeenth field report!

The Oregon Campaign

A little less than a month ago, the two danish founders of Campfire Games, Emil Alexander Hansen (Fancy Sweetroll) and Mads Støjko Larsen (TrustyJam) had the chance to visit the historical advisor of the team, George Crecy in Oregon.

The field trip only lasted three days but George still managed to present (and talk about!) a whole lot of relevant civil war related items as well as experiences: Presentations at a local museum, a chance to try on the union uniform, demonstrations of correct soldier movements as well as a visit to the gunrange where black powder weapons were fired just to name a few.

It felt great to be able to see and handle items from a period that has been the center of our attention for the past three years as well as being able to bring videos/images and experiences back home to the rest of the team.

A huge thanks to George Crecy for being an excellent host!

Updated reload animation

We've just updated the reload animation as well as the Springfield M1861 rifle ingame. Here is a short demonstration video of it:

The video has replaced the old one located at our newly released features page: Warofrights.com which contains quite a few demonstration videos. We'll be updating or adding new videos there as we progress with the development so be sure to check the site from time to time.

The Sharps Rifle

The Sharps rifle model 1859 has just been completed. Here is a few screenshots of it ingame:

New Programmer

We were recently joined by our new programmer Forrest Haller who's been working on making the first person view more authentic. We're happy to have him onboard!

That's all for now. Until next time, have a good one!

Have you made the animations by hand or did you get the chance to motion-capture?

That reload animation makes me cry with excitement!
It reminds me of playing those amazing Battlegrounds 2 line battles. (BG2 is thee best linebattle game to date!)
This game already smashes Battlegrounds graphics; let's hope it will have amazing gameplay.

There are player regiments, which are commanded by other players. Those regiments train 2-3 times a week, they do drill.. formation and fight training. Ingame, those formation battles work out great, if you look at games like Mount&Blade;... where 200 player do perfect line battles, without chaos.

I never saw a multiplayer musket game/mod, in which chaos had the upper hand. Everything is very organised :)

As Hinkel said, the lb's are unbelievably well organised. The people who run these regiment's won't be your stereotypical "Squeeky kid" but they will be (hopefully :P) mature people who are willing to make lb's they best they can. Check Mount and Blade North and South Linebattle's, they will be the closest thing you will get to War of Rights :)
Hopefully this is a nice explanation and answer to your well stated point.
