It’s been a long time coming, but developers Anvil Game Studios have finally added cavalry units to Holdfast: Nations At War. Hussars, cuirassiers and dragoons are all ingame now, each with their own specific mechanics and quirks.
Aside from the addition of cavalry units, the game’s latest patch also focuses on tons of optimizations, balance passes, and more, all detailed in this Steam blog post.
Holdfast: Nations At War is an online multiplayer first and third person shooter focusing on a combination of teamwork and individual skill. Take part in historic clashes on land and at sea waged by the most powerful nations during the great Napoleonic Era.
Charge into battle with over 150 players per server!
Play the way you want!
Command and crew historically inspired sailing vessels in powerful duels or within squadron operations where cooperation in running your vessels leads to victory. War at sea is an entirely different setting and these clashes will take place off the coast in a selection of beautiful arenas.
Take the King’s shilling or fight for the Emperor in glorious Napoleonic field battles. Join the ranks and keep the line steady or provide support from the rear with cannon fire as you strive for dominance over the battlefield.
Now if you will excuse me, I have a sudden urge to roleplay as Marshal Murat (though hopefully not including his later years).
