We have been receiving a lot of questions about our game which is understandable. Now that we are safely through Greenlight we are able to look at the future for Holdfast: Nations At War with a lot more certainty.
This Q&A will be the first in a series of information posts that we intend to release in order to feed information about the game as we can confirm it. It is very important to us that we do not over promise so we are taking our time to only talk about features that we are certain will be present in release.
The first three questions are below but you can expect more and soon. If you want to join in the discussion head over to our forums here.
1. Will the community be able to host it’s own servers?
Yes. You will be able to host your own community servers alongside the official ones we’ll be hosting ourselves. We’ll be distributing the server files as part of the game on release.
2. When do you plan on releasing into Early Access?
The game will be available through Early Access in 2017. We’re not ready to give a specific release date yet. We will make that announcement only when we're sure that we can deliver.
We're glad to see the game being received so well. Thank you!
3. Will there be artillery on land or just on ships?
On Our Forum
There is a scene in Holdfast: NaW - Official Trailer within which cannon on a fort are firing at a ship in the bay. So not only can you expect artillery on land and sea distinctively, you can also expect them in concert. Napoleonic naval assaults anyone?
Thank you from all of us on the Holdfast: NaW team,
