Could we please have some vehicles?

Recommended Posts

If they added vehicles to BTW it would add something make WW1 tactical shooters don’t have and make the game even more unique on top of having a deep melee combat system. Just some tanks and armored cars and the like would be nice. And maybe even planes?

Have you seen the maps? A plane going 150 kph will have a hard time staying within the very tight borders of the battlefields. Vehicles will also struggle to travel through the fields without encountering many clipping problems that you see in post scriptum or squad, where maps are already designed for vehicles. In BTW-maps, you couldn't go 100m without flipping your tank in a ridiculous manner. That said, tanks would be a really welcome addition, but you would need dedicated maps for them. I think the behaviour of vehicles on very complex surfaces, like the crater-riddled battlefields of ww1 is a very complicated to handle with the current physics engine.

Vehicles currently aren't planned - The main focus and priority for Beyond the Wire right now, is to nail the Infantry experience. In saying this, the door is open to potentially add vehicles in the future, but as of now are not planned. All future content outside of planned content is TBD.

New update! Vehicles are planned and so are air battles! Also @Kriechbaum WW1 planes fly much slower than usual planes! But you aren't wrong. I think Air battles could be a separate mode!

I know, that's why I said 150kph, which is ridiculously slow for military aircraft in any war after ww1 and also within the specs of most ww1 fighters. Long story short, most maps that are maybe 1,5km long at best, will be overflown in a bit over 30 sec.
