A lot can happen in the space of days, especially for War Riders.
In a recent update, Cartified announced some more of the features, including how the game can be played, and what specs are needed to play.

“A lot of users have been asking us about the gameplay video,” Kartashov mentions.
“We believe that this is an important step for us to gain more traction and attract more players.”
Kartashov states that, while it’s taking some extra time to complete, the team will announce a new date soon.
“The video is taking some time and resources, so please expect some delays from the original timeline. We hope that, by releasing the gameplay, we will start attracting some mainstream gamers into the ecosystem. In addition to that, we hope that the gameplay video will spark the interest of investors and big gaming companies.”
Along with new footage, the Cartified team has listed the technical requirements for gameplay.
War Riders – Client based and platform support
Long-term, War Riders intends to be a cross-platform game, In order, the game is prioritizing support for an initial PC release.
From there, it intends to provide support for mobile gamers on both iOS and Android and then onto consoles.
Along with this, the game will be focusing on serving as a client-based game, highlighting the issues faced by browser games.
“Today’s browsers are throttling the performance of the game engine, and it simply does not look as good as we expected,” the War Riders team explains.
