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 fifteenth field report!

Updated website

We’ve updated our website at Warofrights.com quite a bit in order to present our game to the first time visitors a bit better. It is now possible to find an F.A.Q. section which will answer the most commonly asked questions. The forum has also gotten an update in visuals.

Updated Pattern 1853 Enfield rifle

Stuart has given the much loved and widely used Pattern 1853 Enfield an overhaul. We didn’t feel like the original enfield rifle we had held up well enough to the other assets ingame so he was charged with creating a new one. Heres a render of the low poly, ingame ready result.

New additions to the union soldiers

Pat has been working on adding additional face and hair variations to the characters in general as well as adding a few new items such as the forage cap. He’s also completed the union private sack coat wearer. Here’s a few ingame screenshots of the additions.

New environmental/beauty pass artist

We’d like to welcome Alireza Khajehali, also known as Maximum-Dev to Campfire Games. He’ll be updating the textures the most in need of an overhaul throughout our maps as well as produce some high quality environmental models such as rocks for us. We’re very pleased he has chosen to join us and we’re sure our environments and general look of the game will benefit hugely of having him on the team. Here’s a look at some of the first assets he’s been producing for us.

That's all for now - We know we’re letting you C.S.A. fans out there wait quite a bit - we promise that the next character reveal will be a southern one, so sit tight! Until next time, have a good one!

We haven't set a price yet.
It will most likely run on 32 bit systems, yes.
No singleplayer is planed at this point.
Some of our early ideas were inspired by the mod Hinkel created, yes. We are not that mod team however. You'll find plenty of familiar mechanics in WoR as well as a lot of all new ones. :)
