Are you ready to join the American Civil War? Well, here is Flying Squirrel Entertainment’s newly released massive multiplayer chaos, Battle Cry of Freedom. After a decade of development, the game finally came out on March 1, 2022. We reviewed this promising game for you. So let’s get started!
The Story of the Battle Cry of Freedom Takes Place in the American Civil War
As you can tell from the name itself, which is a famous song also known as “Rally ‘Round the Flag” and written by George Frederick Root, you fight in the American Civil War. The war started in 1860 and lasted four years until it ended in 1865. It was one of the deadliest wars in the history of America. This is the warzone where you are fighting. So, you can expect enemies from any direction in this game.
Battle Cry of Freedom Gameplay
After some historical information, it’s time to talk about the gameplay. You will pick a side between the Union and the Confederacy. After choosing your side, take your gun, prepare your allies, and you are good to go!
There are more than 14 maps, so you need to know the battlefield very well. Every map has its own strategy and battle plan. Team play is crucial in this game, so be sure to keep in contact with your allies when it’s time for offense or defense.
The formation is the second important part. The game has many types of weapons (actually, you can play with more than 120 weapons!) Because of this, your army will need every gun power at the right place to have its best impact.
Battle Cry of Freedom is pretty realistic, not only in historical aspects but in physics too. When using a projectile, you should consider gravity, temperature, wind direction, and more.
Battle Cry of Freedom has destructible environments. This means the indestructible trees that smash your car when you hit them are not so safe on this battlefield. Although nature can’t protect you all the time, the engineering class has got you covered. You can create your own cover by building fences and sandbag walls.
Use your environment as a resource as well. The weather will be significant. In particular, winds can affect many things, like trees and ballistics, which can change the fate of the war.
Last but not least, motivation. Can you imagine a game without a soundtrack? Think of a boss fight without a heroic theme or a chase without a trilling song. How boring and plain would that be? Well, in Battle Cry of Freedom, you can become a fifer, bugler, or drummer (we think it’s the best one). Keep your soldiers’ brave hearts pumping with courage!
In summary, Battle Cry of Freedom is a massive multiplayer civil war RPG that has realistic and fun mechanics. Flying Squirrel Entertainment is keeping the game fresh by releasing several updates with a ton of new content and bug fixes. The game is growing with new players every single day. We recommend you join the Battle Cry of Freedom. Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!
