Holdfast Development Roadmap 2022!
Mon, 28 February 2022



Holdfast: Frontlines was a massive hit! Breaking its all-time concurrent player peak record 3 times over, it saw many new and old players alike return to experience the free total-conversion DLC. However. the team here at Anvil Game Studios already has their eyes set on bringing fresh new content to the game. Check out the development roadmap for a sneak peek at what’s to come.

We do most certainly hope that this will keep you just as excited as we are for the future of Holdfast! Expect updates to hit both the game’s Napoleonic front on both land and sea as well as the latest addition to that of the Great War.

An update will release early this week targeting bug fixes and optimisations.




Our Vision. Holdfast’s Future



The release of Frontlines stays true to AGS’s roots - Forging our Way Through History. It marks the beginning of a new era for Holdfast both literally and figuratively. The development of Frontlines has been well over a years worth of effort and required the expansion of our team to ensure multiple projects could be worked on at once and that nothing would become neglected.

Both Harper and Storey will be joining the team officially as artists to continue their work on Nations At War, Frontlines and a 3rd yet-to-be announced project that is early in the works. We’re most excited to share more about this in the future but for now we’ll leave you with one thing, as can be said with any title we develop, it will have you, our beloved community in mind. Graciously we ask for your patience and know that development of Holdfast will not cease thanks to the expansion of our team.

We’re sure you’ll enjoy this just as much when it sees a release!

We truly believe that the community is the content and our efforts will not stop here. As mentioned, the release of Frontlines is not an endpoint, rather the start of a new era for the team and this genre of warfare roleplay games we all dearly love. This expansion of our team will allow for content based releases to be worked on at a larger scale and efficiency as shown with Frontlines.

We also want to continue providing the tools for our most dedicated fellows to better enjoy the content we create. Our great community of modders have already been hard at work since the first iteration of the Holdfast SDK which is why we plan on releasing ‘Version 5’ of the SDK that will incorporate the new Frontlines additions amongst additional modding abilities. This will allow modders to create their own unique experiences for the game, perhaps even in eras or settings of their own picking.

Multiple competitions based around the updated SDK will also rise giving players the opportunity to get their own creations into the game. We've also committed to introducing additional content throughout this year on both the game’s Napoleonic and Great War fronts.

Finally, a thank you from everyone at Anvil Game Studios for your ongoing support, it is invaluable and has powered us on to create new experiences to give back to this wonderful community. We hope you enjoy all our efforts and we look forward to seeing you on the Frontlines after all this time!

Until then, may good health be yours. 💕

1st Series. Words From The Producer
Sat, 10 September 2022




Bringing Holdfast into the new age.

Greetings good fellows of our beloved community. First and foremost let me start by thanking every one of you lot for your most generous support and for being with us throughout this delightful journey. I can speak for everyone here in the team that it has been a great pleasure working on the game and seeing you enjoy the content we create.

Some of you might be asking the question of what’s the next big step for Holdfast and the team. I’ll be answering some of your questions in this decently sizeable post.

Anvil Game Studios is currently undergoing a major restructuring of its workflows, pipelines and schedules. We will be better defining the responsibilities and roles everyone in the team plays within the company based on each individual’s core strengths and aspirations. Why are we doing this? We want to ensure that our planned growth doesn’t come at the cost of lesser-quality releases or the sanity of everyone whom I have the greatest of pleasures working with.

Within the next year, we will be bringing new folks into the flock. As we have done so before, we will first look to recruit talented individuals within the confines of our community. The team will continue to grow as we embark on more ambitious updates for Holdfast and beyond.

Our sights are now set on a series of releases leading into 2023 that will bring Holdfast into the new age. Rather than continuing to pile on the many features that Holdfast sports, we will place the good majority of our development schedule focusing on improving existing content to deliver a smoother experience. We’re already doing this with Linebattle 2.0 by improving on performance, the fluidity of the game’s animations and its audio-scape.

To go hand in hand with the above-mentioned endeavour, we have been revisiting our planned update release strategy to ensure the longevity of Holdfast while keeping in mind the needs and wants of our community. We want you to be able to enjoy Holdfast and all that it has to offer for the years to come!

We will also be moving a few features from the 2022 roadmap to future updates. But does this mean that the next foreseeable releases will be lacking in fresh new content? Most definitely not. We are committed to delivering improvements to existing content alongside new maps, a new… Austrian faction and more.

How will we be bringing Holdfast into the new age?

●Polishing the game’s existing animations.
●Improving the first-person view.
●More passes to redefine the role every class plays on the battlefield (both army and naval).
●Cavalry, artillery, skirmishers and other mechanics will be undergoing significant reworks.
●Increase gratification for kills.
●Expanding on the recently released progression mechanics.
●Improving replayability and player retention (more maps, roleplay features etc).
●Revisiting old props and game models.
●Further improve our sound-scape.
●Redesigning our dated user interface.
●Dishing out more optimisations to the game.
●Bug fixes, optimisations and stability.

Our update release strategy has been fine tuned with something big we have in store for Holdfast in 2023. This will ensure the longevity of the game for the years to come. We’ll be sure to bring you in on this as we reach closer to this huge release!

I’m sure you’d also be interested in knowing what we’re planning for the next update so without further notice, here’s what you should expect to get your hands on with the release of version 2.8. Be sure to join Discord if you’re looking at getting in touch with us or wanting to provide us with feedback.

What’s in store for the next Holdfast update?

●Napoleonic howitzers.
●More additions to Holdfast’s soundscape.
●Engine upgrade.
●Feature allowing artisans to select the recently introduced new faces through the Holdfast SDK.
●Festive content! We’ll be planning ahead for some lovely Fred lore additions this Halloween.

Until next time, I thank you once again and may good health be yours.
