Set in the 19th Century American Civil War, players will be able to fight massive 300-player battles in Battle Cry of Freedom. Players will be able to choose and fight on either the Union or Confederacy's side while using weaponry that was used in the period. This ranges from long range rifled muskets, artillery, bayonets, knives, and sabers.
There will also be Commander Battles available, which means that up to 800 AI-controlled soldiers can be lead by players to see who is the ultimate commander. Other choices include choosing to enlist in the Infantry, Artillery, or as a Engineer Corps. Engineers can construct defenses, build pontoon bridges, and supply ammunition. If you'd rather save lives than take them, you can become a Surgeon instead.
