    Hey is the first look at Nations At War: White Star Rising Digital screenshot. The Digital edtion is based on our board game edition. White Star Rising depicts platoon level combat in World War II. In NAW you'll find everything you're looking for in a platoon level game: armor, artillery, infantry serving as more than cannon fodder, command and control, air support, and desperate close assaults that leave the victor in possession of the ground and the defeated in headlong retreat. All included in an easy to learn and challenging to master game system. White Star Rising, which focuses on the fighting between the Americans, their British allies, and Germans, includes three counter sheets complete with vehicles, soldiers and weapons of the armies that fought in France, Belgium and Germany in 1944-45. You'll fight battles at Omaha Beach, in the Lorraine, on the outskirts of Belgium, and in Germany itself.

    We will have more soon.

      Hey David,

      This looks amazing! Have been waiting for another Digital game with some meat to it since "HOS". Do you have many people working on this? I know you dont like to give time re-lease dates so how about ready in 2106 or 2017?
      thanks!

      Hey Punisher, I don't think the forum has been activated yet for NAW for me to post there, but we are already very far into development for nations at war. Expect a video soon :)

      Hey Thank you Philip! I have been watching closely on this Digital Title. Will it have a full AI were you can play Solo against the PC?

      Yes, at release it will have fully AI controlled opponents, online multiplayer, scenario rule enforcement (so if a scenario outlines that certain forces can only be placed in woods, etc, it will show you where your counters should go), and lots of other conveniences that should make the game quick to jump right into and play.

      Hey Punisher, it's definitely looking like it! Right now all of the main systems are already in place: Movement, attacking, line of site, terrain modifies, chaos, fate, AI, and even basic multiplayer. Now we're just fleshing out all of the content (scenarios, chits) and testing testing testing!

      Hey Philip- Is this the same game engine that Tank On Tank uses? I saw the video on your Facebook LNL site and looks familiar.

      No it is a completely different design.

      How is the testing going. Will there be a new recent video game play coming or will you just release the game soon?

      I'm not sure what the status on the video is since Davids team takes care of it, but right now we're making sure all of the details are covered. As you know there are lots of things to keep track of, and lots of different interesting side effects and we don't want to miss them. We are finishing up all HQ related functions, then moving on to recon, then finishing up the fate and chaos chits. All units are now in the game (I think there are ~168) and things are coming along. The goal is still to get the game finished this month.
