Holdfast: Nations At War has been updated! There’ll be plenty of bug fixes coming along in this one. We’ll also be introducing a few quality of life additions requested by the community. Have a read at our latest blog post for all the details.


ATTN! Server Administrators

We have updated the 'vapuriloadtester.exe' server helper program. With this updated helper program, game servers will be able to automatically reconnect back to the lobby if the lobby server goes under maintenance.


Please download and update the server helper program. You can do so from the ‘holdfast_naw_public_server’ Dropbox folder.

Game Core

- Performed a minor game engine upgrade.

Quality of Life

- You can now connect to a server by pressing the ‘Enter’ key.
