Aside from that, there’s the new invasion game mode you can play with. This siege-inspired game mode allows you to choose between two factions and is set in one of the new maps, Heroes Landing. You can either choose to repel the invaders from your homeland or side with the invading team as you fight your way up from the shoreline and into a local town, where you’ll find a coastal fortification waiting to be besieged.

The other three maps present you with a different set of challenges. Sacrifice is held on a medium-sized battlefield blanketed in snow, which has three defined trench lines to attack or defend from.

Berkton Green may look peaceful and pleasant at first glance, but you’ll soon find out that this place is also tainted by the scourge of war. Here, there are three points of interest that you need to fight for control - including the central church, town factory, and marketplace.

The last map is called the Al Uddin Ruins. Considered the first of a new series of Linebattle maps coming to Holdfast: Nations at War, the ruins of Al Uddin are host to the calamitous yet glorious battles of the Napoleonic Era.
