Set during the American civil war, War of Rights aims to bring players into the midst of several famous battles. Gameplay focused on realism will enable players to fully engross themselves into the ferocious combat of the era. Featuring several regiments, players will quickly learn the benefits of fighting together. An organized and tactically clever chain of command will be needed in order to succeed. Players will be able to enlist as different ranks spanning from Private to General of the army, each with its own distinct role and play style. Utilizing CryENGINE 3's sheer amount of power, getting as many players online as possible and thereby ensuring massive battles will be one of the priorities throughout the development.
While the union attacks concentrated on the northern flank and center of the battlefield, the southern flank was silent for a long while.
At about 10:00 AM, General Burnside tried to cross the Antietam at the Rohrbach's Bridge, which was later known as the Burnside Bridge. Two union advances were pushed back by 400 confederates - the 2nd and 20th Georgia regiment, under the command of General Toombs.
The third charge to take the bridge was at 12:30 PM. It was led by the 51st New York and the 51st Pennsylvania, who, with adequate artillery support and a promise that a recently canceled whiskey ration would be restored, if they were successfull, took the bridge after a gallant charge.
The tough Georgians had cost the Federals more than 500 casualties, giving up fewer than 160 themselves. They had stalled Burnside's assault on the southern flank for more than three hours.
