As you may have seen, we’ve been revealing many details about the upcoming Oster build on the blog over the past couple of weeks, and the response we’ve had so far has been fantastic. Reading about all the exciting things we’re bringing in with the next build is all well and good, but we thought it might be nice to do something a little different and actually show you some of the new features in action!
Before we release a new build, we have a small squadron of loyal soldiers wreaking havoc on our test server, doing their best to break anything and everything they can. It was these grizzled veterans who, along with the help of a couple of our most battle-hardened community members, took on the task of putting together this small teaser trailer to give you a taste of some of the new toys that will soon be arriving on the battlefields.
These behind-the-scenes Heroes did such a good job of it that we decided to release it as an official video on our YouTube channel. Have a look, get excited, then let us know which of the new features coming in Oster that you’re most looking forward to in the comments below.
With a new week upon us, we thought that those of you might not have seen it on our Facebook page should also have a chance to see this gem of a trailer from K120, one of our veteran players who has a bit of a track record for creating awesome trailers from the game.
This time around, K120 donned his directorial helmet and took to the battlefields in order to capture the German forces in action, and the result is this trailer, simply titled “Wehrmacht” which is well worth a watch.
This year, we’re really looking to ramp up the amount of videos we release (a kind of New Year’s resolution of ours, if you will), and to help us achieve this we want to get our players involved in the process to help us capture all of the very best moments from the battlefields!
If you’re interested in getting involved with H&G video capture (and picking up some Gold in the process) head over to this thread on the forum and find out more:
NB: Reto.Robotron3000’s New Year’s resolution is to “not eat a single unripe gooseberry in 2014″ which might be the most easily kept AND useless New Year’s resolution in a long time.
The new build ‘Newgarden’ is online with a lot of exciting new stuff! We hope you will all help us welcome new players and community members to the game. With Winter Solstice & Christmas upon us we managed to get Reto.KenSolo and Reto.Colding in from the cold and into the editing booth and they went straight to work on a new videolog showing you some of the updates in the Newgarden build. Take a look here:
The new build ‘Newgarden’ is right around the corner and one of the bigger features introduced is the much requested character progression tree. In order to answer some of the questions that have popped up, we did a quick video interview with our Game Director Jacob ‘Reto.RedBjarne’ Andersen.
