Beware. The Plague Doctor Arrives!
Thu, 29 October 2020



Douse the Jack-o'-lanterns and flee for your lives as this Halloween Holdfast: Nations at War’s battlefields are joined by a new foe… With a daunting crow beaked mask and the power to spread disease, the Plague Doctor class variant will briefly be available to play this Halloween.

To further celebrate this spooky season, Holdfast: Nations At War will be 40% off for the remainder of Steam’s Halloween Sale!


If the terrifying thought of a Plague Doctor chasing you down isn’t enough to scare you away, have a read of what else is to come in this update below.



Witch Doctor? Plague Doctor!
A new Surgeon class variant, the Plague Doctor will be playable in-game over the Halloween period by those who wish to scare unsuspecting infantrymen on the field of battle.

Skilled in alchemy, this doctor has the ability to spread disease to those unfortunate enough to be caught in his path. Whispers of these ghost-like figures with deadly powers haunting the battlefield have long been used to scare the fresh recruits. Those whispers are now coming to life...



In addition to the Plague Doctor class variant, players being healed by Surgeons will display a new particle emission to indicate they’re being healed.



For ‘Pump’-King & Country!
With sightings of evil ever-increasing, superstition has called for all the lanterns to be replaced by ghoulishly carved pumpkins in an attempt to scare him away… Simply equip your lantern as a lantern carrying class and bathe the world around you in a glow of pumpkin glory!

Eager pianists will also find special Halloween styled piano music that can be played on the pianos should anyone find facing the battlefield too gruesome this Halloween.



Linux & Colour Blind Modes
New colour blind options with support for multiple colour blind modes and official support for Linux-based game servers have been introduced to the game.

Support for Protanopia, Deuteranopia & Tritanopia types of colour blindness can be toggled through the game’s video settings and will hopefully be a welcomed addition for those who need it.

Linux servers are also being made available to providers officially after stability testing has been concluded. Join the Official Holdfast Discord and visit the #server-owners text channel to gather support should you require it. You’ll also find a setup guide on the Wiki to get you started.

Contest. Battlefield Forger
Two whole weeks have now passed since the Battlefield Forger contest first commenced. Already we have received some pretty creative entries into the competition and have seen plenty of splendid works in progress soon to be entered.

If you have not started on your battlefield yet there’s still plenty of time as you have until November 9th to finalise your submission. Should you already have submitted your battlefield and want to make changes and update your submission that is perfectly acceptable and you’ll be able to do so until November 9th when the entry period closes.

To clear up some questions that have been asked over the last couple of weeks here is a brief FAQ about the contest.

Can my map be larger than 500 x 500?

If you’re creating a Naval battlefield then a playable area larger than 500 x 500 is acceptable. However if you’re creating a land battlefield please keep to the set 500 x 500 playable area (This does not include background terrain, try not to exceed 1000 x 1000 for this though).

Can I use custom models?

Provided that you own a transferable license for the model, you created the model yourself and the model is up to a high quality standard similar to what is seen in Holdfast currently then you may use custom models. If you’re unsure if you own a transferable license for the model it’s best if you do not include it.

Want to participate? Take a read of the previous blog post that details everything you need to know about the contest. Keep being creative. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Battlefield Forger Contest Ends!
Thu, 19 November 2020



Everyone here at Anvil Game Studios would like to say a big congratulations to everybody who participated in the first-ever Holdfast: Nations At War mapping contest. Members of the modding community both new and old showed great passion, creativeness and support for others throughout the duration of this contest. It was truly admirable!

Over the course of the month that the contest was running we received a massive 24 entries into the competition which made whittling them down to a top three rather challenging indeed. They were all brilliant in their own unique ways.


77th Ed’s Prussian Hills

Winners Announced!
Judging commenced on the night of the 15th of November 2020 and lasted a good number of hours as Refleax, Rycon, Harper and Storey took their time analysing each map one by one in all their creativity. Despite each map showing their brilliance in their own way, the top 3 had to be given the highest honours.

So without delay here are our Battlefield Forger winners!



1st place is awarded to
Willy - Aspern

This countryside battlefield really stood out to us as it incorporated all aspects of Holdfast: Nations At War within one map. It’s rolling hills, fields of wheat and beautifully designed village lent itself brilliantly in making a hybrid urban and rural battlefield. We look forward to seeing this officially added into the game.





2nd place is awarded to
Davwado - Port City
