Who And When
"The Trenches" is a World War I mod for the Half-Life engine. Included in our first release are the British and Germans, two large players of the "Great War". Players will be able to fight for their homelands with six different weapons on many locations on the Western Front with two different kinds of gameplay.
Rush over the top with your teammates or stay in your trench to pick off enemy troops in "Trench Capture" gameplay (tt) and cover the advance of your army to in territorial push (tp) play.
The Trenches will have some features that will make this an even more unique mod than it already is. Some of these features (for the first release) include:
-Custom Faces (no additional files needed!)
-Built in MP3 Player with Exclusive Tracks
-Realistic ambient sound system
-Two classes for the Germans and British Imperial Forces
-Manual "game action" system
-High damage variables
-Anti-"Cheap" measures against spawn camping, absurd weapon reload times, ect.
Multi-Country Team Select
You can choose from 6 countries that were involved in the First World War. Only two will be available in the first release, but we do plan on more.
Well, it is time for some new news on this page, don't you think? With Morphew unable to update the site regularly, I will be filling in a bit to keep you all informed on our situation.
We are currently still working diligently on getting 1.1 released, and we are honestly closer than ever. To hold you all over for a bit, I figured I would make this news release a 2-part facet.
One is the release of tp_city, made by our mapper extraordinaire Hawk. It can be downloaded here or you can browse on over to the Downloads page and get it there as well. Remember, this is a custom map for The Trenches 1.0b.
Now to the other part of the post, 1.1 media. While we have been fairly skimpy with the media on the front page, we have been posting more and more on the forums. I figured I would share a few of those pictures with you as well as one never before seen outside a few select people. Here they are:

Remember! The shots of 1.1 should be considered as work-in-progress. The content shown within is subject to change before release.
