While Holdfast: Frontlines WW1 is now available for Windows PC (via Steam) as a free update, the new conversion DLC has been released completely free of charge.

Here is a preview of the Total Conversion DLC:
Holdfast: Frontlines is an online multiplayer first and third person shooter set during World War I. Engage in large-scale, destructive Great War battles with over 150 players per server, featuring rifles, machine guns, artillery, grenades, and other iconic weapons and mechanics of the era.
In addition to providing an all-new experience with the mentioned free Total Conversion DLC, the entire game received a graphical overhaul and several new role-playing features implemented to continue promoting engaging player interactions.
- Experience the Great War – Charge bravely and experience the Great War like never before with over 150 players in Holdfast: Frontlines. Storm the trenches with grenades, counter enemy attacks with devastating machine gun fire, rain down terror with artillery shells and organize with your squad to capture integral positions.
- Battlefield Roles – Featuring squad-based gameplay, the new Offense game mode offers a new way to dominate the battlefields of Holdfast. Fight in skirmishes and large-scale battles in an attempt to totally dominate the enemy by capturing strategic positions in a linear fashion, closely simulating the tug of war of the era.
- Halt Oncoming Charges – This is the weapon that changed warfare forever. Use MG-08 and Vickers machine guns to stop oncoming enemy assaults. Suppress the enemy with relentless firepower and turn the tide of battle in seconds, these deadly weapons are not to be taken lightly and are not an easy task to overcome when in the hands of a skilled soldier.
- Shell Enemy Encampments – Break out of the trench stalemate by shelling enemy positions and providing smokescreens for Allied assaults. Artillery is a key part of the war machine and will literally shape the battlefield under its intense bombardment. With mobile heavy howitzers, light howitzers and heavy mortars, there will be little escape from the nightmare they bring.
- Root Your Positions – Build a frontline or prepare a defensive position and take cover for life with Frontlines entrenchment mechanics. Engineers are able to dig trenches to their exact needs with specialized parts such as sandbags, periscopes, firing platforms, and roofs.
- Welcoming Community – Holdfast is more than just a game, its community provides an additional experience through extensive role-playing features and VoIP. The Holdfast community brings together role players, members of regiments (clans), casual players and those who are only here for the untimely fun times together. This ultimately results in the unique experience that Holdfast and its community provide.
