In celebration of the game’s first community tournament at QuakeCon, we’re releasing an all-new wallpaper for the game. Head to www.battlecrythegame.com to download.
Inspired by the colors and rendering style from 19th century frescoes and by the efficient techniques used by World War I Naval painters, the mural depicts a battle scene between the Royal Marines and Cossacks taking place near Novi Sevastopol (English: New Sevastopol). A suspended city with three bridges, one coming from Asia, another from the Cossack Empire, and third one from the West, Novi Sevastopol is a key strategic point in the Pansophic era, the last stop for all good arriving from the mythical Silk Road before they reach their final destination. A massive metal structure overlooking the entire port is the largest trading post on the Black Sea.
