Developer Blog 13 - Artillery! -
Welcome back to our 13th Developer Blog. This week we are going to show you some of the artillery pieces we have been working on.
The 3-Inch Ordnance Rifle was a reliable, accurate and fast firing gun, which could shoot all kinds of ammunition, from normal roundshot to shells and canister. Even though the Confederate version of the gun was not as good as the Federal, it was still the second most common artillery piece throughout the war. With an effective range of 1830 yards, it can hit almost anything on the map, without the need to reposition itself. It will be available for both USA and CSA.
The 10-Inch Seacoast Mortar was one of the most widely used guns during the American Civil War. Due to its rather large size and heavy barrel, it was not used as field gun but as stationary heavy artillery piece in forts. The 10-Inch Seacoast Mortar fired 98 pound mortar shells over a range of 4500 yards. This made the gun a very effective weapon against enemy positions.

Battle Cry for Freedom vs War of Rights.
Who will Win?
(if they end up being released around same time i expect somone to make a comical video of somesort like that. Perhaps Epic Rap Battle of history style) hehe
I figure that aesthetically War of Rights will have the upper hand, but when it comes to gameplay and community BCoF will blow it out of the water.
I believe from what I have read that War of Rights will be first person like battlegrounds, whereas Battle Cry of Freedom will be 3rd person like Mount & Blade Franchise. I think both models are interesting. "WoR" I think would be really cool playing as a infantryman, but Cavalry might be a little strange. Whereas Battle Cry of Freedom will be playable for all types of warfare.
It would be certainly great if there is a character type creator like in Mount and Blade multiplayer.
