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.
Finally, a public beta timeframe for you guys! Also a request for new developers.

It’s that time of the month again! We don’t have a whole lot to report this month, but we do have some good news. At our last team meeting, after discussing whether or not to release an alpha build to the public, and taking comments we’ve received on the matter from the community into consideration, we decided not to put out a public alpha. You guys will have to wait a little bit longer to experience WWI:S in all of its glory. However, it shall not be long. We are proud to announce our intention to get a public beta release out by the end of 2009. Our list of bugs and unimplemented features grows shorter and shorter all the time and we are not far now from beta. More on that next month.
World War I: Source is still looking for a few people to join the development team as we take WWI:S to beta and beyond. If you are a 3d character artist, an animator, or an experienced level designer and you’d like to contribute, visit our forum. We are not actively seeking other positions but if you feel you have something to add to the team, by all means drop us a line.
Next month: more information about the beta!
