    Should we start a Forum?

    Last night we had an internal testing session as usual and then this happened.
    We are 1h50 minutes into battle, the 1st Airborne Division led by Major General Urquhart is fighting hard. The Wehrmacht is holding onto their last piece of ground near Renkum called "Rimzicht", they need to hold it for another 10 minutes if they don't want to loose this battle.


    British soldiers decide to regroup near a hedgerow and combine forces for the final push! For king and country!

    Enjoy!

    You're testing PS? That video was pretty sweet.

    I heard some FH2 regulars talking about it, seemed like positive feedback. Also a thread on WaW about it. Sounds like they're going to investigate hosting a game server for this and another WWII game called Hell Let Loose. https://www.hellletloose.com/

    The two games are similar in many ways, and even based on the same engine, Unreal 4. From what I've gathered, these are the differences that jump out to me: Post Scriptum is much farther along and has far more assets and vehicles, but is actually more limited in scope. It focuses on Operation Market Garden, and the British and Germans only. Expansion beyond that is not even mentioned, but seems to have modding tools out of the box. Since it's built off of the existing game Squad, it may have some of its notoriously slow (read boring for some) gameplay, but will also be familiar feeling to many right away.

    Hell Let Loose will also start on the western front, in Normandy, but with the Americans and Germans. It's not built on an existing game that I know of, so while they may be laboring to create many things from scratch, it gives them more flexibility. The game mode looks to differ with large sectors across the map that are controlled and can change, versus a small flag cap area. The game will also progress to include both the eastern front and the pacific (so eventually adding the Japanese and Russians).
