Iron Europe is a World War I mod for the Mount&Blade; Warband Napoleonic Wars DLC. Our goal is to immerse players in the brutal battles of WWI. Players will have the opportunity to fight it out, for France or for Germany, in the trenches and in no man's land. Play as an expendable rifleman grunt, a brave officer leading from the front, an artillerymen supporting your comrades from afar, or an elite assault trooper, spearheading attacks.Use bolt-action rifles, machine guns, and pistols to take down enemies from a distance or close in and engage in brutal hand to hand combat with knives, clubs, and the trusty bayonet. A host of features, including whistles, bleeding, bandaging, and grenades have been added to bring the WWI experience to life.

-Two Factions: French Third Republic, German Empire. Fight for the French Third Republic or the German Empire. These mighty titans of Europe have different strengths and weaknesses which players can discover and use to their advantage.
-Wide variety of classes: Each class is unique, with it's own advantages, disadvantages and equipment sets. Apart from typical, expected classes such riflemen, officers, and artillerymen, you'll have the opportunity to play as a support trooper, helping your comrades with ammunition and bandages. Or instead, be an elite Stormtrooper, serving the Vaterland by overrunning enemy defenses and striking deep into their territory. Yet more opportunities await you as a French trench sweeper, a Chauchat gunner or an armored German sentinel.
-Tons of New Weapons: A wide range of killing instruments are at your disposal including bolt-action rifles, revolvers, semi-autos, machine guns, sniper rifles, knives, clubs and bayonets.
-Grenades: Use grenades to assault enemy positions. There are several different types, including both fuse and percussion grenades. Each has unique characteristics, for example, the M16 Stielhandgranate has long range but is awkward to carry while the F1 grenade can be carried in great numbers but cannot be thrown very far. Several Stielhandgranates can be bundled together to form a concentrated charge. There are also place-able grenade launchers and rifle grenades.
-Medical System: Taking a large amount of damage causes bleeding which can be stopped with bandages, carried by support troopers and medics. Medical classes can provide treatment with morphine.
-Ammunition Crates: Support troops can carry ammo crates around the battlefield, allowing comrades to resupply.
-Heavy Machine Guns: Heavy machine guns can be carried around the battlefield and are highly effective in holding positions. Cut down advancing enemy forces with automatic firepower.
-Whistles: As an officer, rally your men and sound the charge with a whistle.
-Binoculars: Binoculars come in handy when you're a sniper, artilleryman or officer. Locate enemy positions and plan accordingly.
-Artillery: Rain fire on your enemies with infantry support guns, field guns and trench mortars.

Good news from the front. Although we are choosing not to show any eye candy to you yet, we thought we had better let you know what’s going on. The remnants of the developer team are on leave from the busy time of school and work has recommenced on Iron Europe 2.0.

As eluded to above, the team is very much diminished, with several members needed elsewhere. Therefore, the developer team is looking for people with useful skills such as:

It looks awful. Line battles on plains with bolt-action rifles. That is nothing like World War I.

It actually kind of was, in the first British-German battle at Amiens, the Germans attacked the British in lines.

The Battle of Amiens began in 1918... Line Tactics were LONG gone at this point. They were gone by 1914 and by my knowledge, weren't used in any battles.

did a big part in WW1? like wot killing the Archduke and causing the ******* war and then you guys got ****** over by the Austrian Hungarian army?

Evinton Feb 26 2015, 4:00pm replied:

Oh not this **** again.
The Archduke didn't get killed by Serbs. He got killed by Bosnian-Serbs. Nonetheless, it made no difference as Serbia didn't have any say in the Assassination of Franz Ferdinand.
There was a period in the early 20th Century that's popularly dubbed The Powder keg of Europe. TL;DR version: Everyone wanted to get at each other's throats but didn't have a Casus Belli to do it. The assassination of the Archduke enabled that through a net of intricate alliances, the 1st World War would take place. Also, the Serbs held their own against the Austro-Hungarians, successfully pushing them back at Cer and Kolubara, and holding back the Austro-Hungarians at the Drina, although with major losses. They only got occupied was because they were isolated from the rest of the Entete and Germany helped Austro-Hungary.

Let's be honest, Austro-Hungary got their ***** kicked in Italy.

From my time with the press copy, I've found that this game is absolutely next-gen. Taking the already astounding M&B engine and taking it to all new heights. This includes the DirectX11 beard physics. I found the opening cutscene very emotional, it struck my soul and immersed me into the story-driven world of Iron Europe. The only downside to this game so far, is the lack of a download link. Edit: Download link has been released, as well as an update to the game platform to enable Oculus Rift…
