I am a bit salty that they try to sell it as a standalone and not as a addon for squad. This might be a thing that could divide the playerbase. But if they just stay on the same level as Squad and do it WW2 style, I will be a happy man. 

There is no war to end all wars.

That would be like saying that that all source engine based games are addons to Quake for example.

I'd expect the player base will be divided by whether they want to play or not. What are you going to do otherwise? Insist they only play one title?

For me the interest in the game is how accurate the maps are, the fact they've focussed NOT on the yanks for a change. My concern however is that it's basically a pretty "twitch" shooter that will end up with ahistorical gameplay. Plus I'm not sure how it will work with low numbers. 

But I will wait and see how it goes on release.

Have you played Squad? Since you are afraid it is going to be a "twitch shooter" I guess you have not played Squad yet.

 It goes a bit further than using the same engine, which in this case would be UE4. But Post Scriptum started as a mod for Squad. It has not evolved a bit, but it is using the same code, shares assets and is also using the same (new) animation and other things like some gameplay mechanics. 

The maps will not be "historically" correct. They will be somewhat authentic, which should no be confused with historically correct. They are also going in the same direction as squad. There are some realism aspects of it, but at the end of the day they are trying ti make a game that is also balanced and is easy to grasp but hard to master.

"we're dedicated to historical accuracy"
Video shows paratrooper being dropped onto a glider LZ...

one to watch perhaps? need more gameplay footage methinks.

Any man that can hitch the length and breadth of the Galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through and still know where his towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with.

Looking at what some YouTubers have out out on this it looks quite good. Obviously it's only in alpha stage so a lot can change but I think i may be picking this one up...
