Post Scriptum is a WW2 simulation game, focusing on historical accuracy, large scale battle, difficult learning curve and an intense need for cohesion, communication and teamwork. Players will relive the events of ‘Operation Market Garden’ across the fields and towns of Holland. This massive Allied assault consisted of a coordination of the British and American Airborne to capture key bridges while the British XXXth Corps moved to reinforce them through Highway 69. However, consecutive delays in consolidating ground from the north of Belgium through Nijmegen forced the 1st British Airborne Division in Arnhem to make a stand much longer than anticipated. With no successful link between the XXXth Corps and the Airborne in sight, the seventh and final bridge in Arnhem was considered lost.

‘The Bloody Seventh’ is our name for the initial focus of the project as we feel it succinctly details the struggle that the British paratroopers had to endure while waiting for their army counterpart to establish a link through the lower Rhine.

Players will be given the option to fight with the British Airborne Division, British XXX Corps or several branches of the German Army, such as the Wehrmacht or the Waffen SS. It’s a rare opportunity to experience the intense battlefield that was the Battle of Arnhem, which stretched across farms, woods, villages and city areas. Each area is being accurately recreated from archival references that range from street level to aerial images. Whether you’re jumping out of a plane, resupplying friendlies or operating a tank you will find multiple reasons to drop back into the battlefield in this grand scaled representation of a WW2 setting never explored in a large multiplayer environment.

I'd get it if it wasn't as optimised as something that is poorly optimised.

When you think about it, there are not that many good / enjoyable WW2 video games. I wouldn't say it is over-used :P I am certainly up for a WW2 game of some sort that is FPS. there aren't really many good ones around these days

I would say Heroes and Generals, but then I would make myself laugh with P2W.

The World War 1 and 2 is an overused subject in military movies and games. Yeah some are bad, but there still are thousands of games of it. There are also a lot bad current day military games. World War 3 for example took the right way in what BF5 didnt.

There are currently no games in the same niche as Squad / PS, its smaller scale than Arma. Both are 2 infantry platoons+ support attacking each other, with a heavy built in emphasis on teamwork.
The games encourage team play through the section / squad system and enable leaders to manage their teammates, ex. kick the ones with no mics, those who lone wolf or those who think marksman is useful etc.

Post Scriptum suffered from all the Battlefield 5 refugees who were looking for something to replace that. They got a rude awakening as they played since their play styles were so poor compared to people coming from Squad / Project Reality / Tarkov / Insurgency.
Its really only starting to come together on the public servers in terms of good leaders.

We started our own custom gamemode between units if anyone wants to come over, its 1 life scenario based.

I really hope they will work on optimizing the game. On many on above average computers it runs quite badly. Overall there are moments where it resembles Foxhole but in first person.

The company is great with a lots of history regarding realism. Project Reality is still around. I trust them a lot.
