Ok - this Early Access of Days of War is available to buy at $24.99 at STEAM

From the announcement - Early access starts today, Jan 27, 2017 - if you buy the game, you have to find the ONE Days of War early access server. I do not know how long that server will be up and running. It is a NA located server.

We love tight competitive gameplay more than anyone, but World War 2 was defined by its massive battles and invasions, and we want to bring that experience to Days of War with 100 player combat.

The first 100 Player Battle Event will take place from Feb 3rd - 5th, where we will have 100 players storming Omaha beach. To participate all you need to do is look for one the official Driven Arts servers that weekend.

These 100 player battles will initially be offered as planned events so we can fine-tune the details and performance. Once all is going well, we will be raising the server cap from 32 to 100 so you can host your own as well.

To celebrate the event, we're giving away 100 copies of the game, follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more info on how to enter.





here is an actual GIF, or short animated vid of in game play -

Some notes from the devs about this game as it exists now -

http://steamcommunity.com/games/454350/announcements/detail/233460694952508615

Optimization
Right now our focus is on increasing the efficiency of the game with higher player counts. Average FPS seems to be about 60 for most players on a full server, and we want this to be over 100 for a mid range PC and 144+ for high end machines.

The biggest effect on framerate is the number of players in the server at once, due to the cost of player animations. For this reason on a full server your video settings won’t have a major impact on your framerate. Over the coming weeks we'll be rewriting our animation code/logic to address this.

If you are not happy with your framerate on a 32 player server, we’d recommend playing on smaller servers for the moment. Part of the reason we do our 100 player battle events is to help optimize the game for more players, be it 16, 32, 64 or 100.

Visibility
Our goals with the visibility have a few dimensions
Adjust lighting to be more consistent, some areas now are too dark, some are too bright
Severely reduce fog and dust to allow better visibility over distance
Increase contrast between player model and environment
Reduce the appearance of “film grain”
We are going to be making changes to the lighting, fog, ambient occlusion and other post process settings to increase visibility in these areas with the first fixes coming tonight.

AND here is a graphic depicting the current and upcoming features of the game - http://cdn.edgecast.steamstatic.com/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/27103260/ce7b70a4c98a905566468ab38f5d929937b0fc76.png

Currently, there are 2 factions - US and Germany with 4 maps and 2 game modes - Domination and Detonation.

32 players - 9 classes - 22 unique weapons.

JUNE 15

Free Weekend is DELAYED

Free Weekend and New Map
We announced last week that we would hold a free weekend for Days of War and we got a lot feedback from players who believe a free weekend would be too premature. After playing this past weekend and seeing how close we are to a much more fun game, we’ve decided we wholeheartedly agree.

We are going to postpone the free weekend and wait until we have more content that reflects the identity of the game and will present Days of War in a much stronger light.
