Yes we've finally go the game up on the Steam store. The game will be available for Early Access purchase in early 2016. We'll confirm dates closer to the time.
The Early Access release will feature content from the war's most iconic battle, the battle at Rorkes Drift. We aim to release new unique content into Early Access when it becomes available.
We aim to be in Early Access for about 6 months.
Here a few new images from some of the maps we are working on.

To recap, Rorkes Drift was the scene of one of the iconic battles that took place during the 1879 war and was subsequently made into a major movie. We've based the gameplay off the real life battle and would like to show some new images taken from in game at Rorkes Drift.
