A very attractive shooter with many interesting mechanics was discovered in the vastness of Steam. A game called Battle Cry of Freedom will take players to the battlefields of the United States during the Civil War. A credible recreation of the 19th-century era is declared, with all existing weapons of that time and military units.
Flying Squirrel Entertainment is responsible for the development of the shooter, which knows a lot about the historical setting. This writing team was responsible for the development of the Napoleonic Wars expansion pack for Mount & Blade: Warband. It took the developers almost ten years to create Battle Cry of Freedom. That is how much time it took for them to implement all the ambitious ideas.
Ten minutes of Battle Cry of Freedom gameplay:
In Battle Cry of Freedom, players will have the opportunity to re-enact the history of the Civil War or radically change its course.
