WWI Source: Fight in the rain soaked trenches or charge over No Man’s Land to battle in the War to End All Wars. Use authentic weaponry to conquer the enemy, call in artillery strikes to take out enemies en masse, or use chemical warfare to disable your opponents! WWI Source is the first and only World War I game to be developed for Steam. All the current WWI mod teams (‘The Trenches 2’, ‘Fields of Horror’, ‘WWI Source’) have united to develop the best World War I game to the Steam community, using the latest Source engine. Please visit the official website for more information on WWI Source and the team.

Everybody, it is on. Rather than have work slow down during the holidays, we’ve been working hard during our Christmas break and all of January to finish up the mod. We can finally say that it is indeed coming. We are going into SVN Lock next week or so and the release should be shortly after that. What does that mean? Yes, we are releasing this February 2010. To tide you over until then, we’ve got a ton of media to show you of what we’ve been working on these last couple of months: mapshots of Bunker ( a big map by Sol set in winter), new hand and sleeve textures, an HL2 ammo crate reskin, in-game playtest images, the skinned enfield, the Mark I tank, etc. You can see them below.

We’ve had some great nearly full playtests these last few weeks thanks to the Art of War servers as well as the [RAF] clan (a big thanks to both of them!), and we’re definitely looking forward to playing with everyone on full servers. Also, rest assured, once we are absolutely 100% sure of the release date, we will post word about it.

So until release in the coming weeks, sign up on the forums, discuss the game, tell your friends, because World War I: Source is coming!

We're using the Orange Box version of the Source engine...though I think if you own any source game you can play it. Not 100% sure though, can anyone confirm this?

If you're using Source SDK Base - Orange Box, any Source game is the minimum requirement. This includes Ep1-based games such as CS:S, as well as Left 4 Dead 1 and 2.
