Foxhole Gameplay

At the beginning of the Foxhole, the players choose between two different factions, which are The Wardens and The Colonials. After that, the players spawn in their team’s home location. The region selection screen is also available for the players to choose from a wide range of ally-controlled town halls and forts as long as it is active. The garrison becomes active after a specific number of players chose their spawn location inside that town fort. The team can build strong defences named garrison houses and store supplies in storage depots in the selected area. Some of the town halls have unique facilities, such as vehicle factories, shipyards and other vehicle-related buildings that allow the players to create different types of equipment and more vehicles to use for combat and exploration. That way, some towns can have more value because of the logistical choices, and players focus on securing these locations more than others.

Foxhole does not have a class-based system, and the roles of the players are not predetermined. You have to react to the dynamic of war and other events without limitations of your initial choice. The game features an in-game economy driven by the players, and they have to use various tools such as a sledgehammer to gather materials from interactable objects in the virtual world. You can find them easily, and the game helps the players by putting the possible locations on the map. You can use those in a refinery to transform them into other materials and essential elements to manufacture everything that the players may need in combat, such as weapons, ammunition, fortifications, vehicles and other objects.

In Foxhole, one of the aspects of the gameplay is controlling the efficiency of supply transportation. The soldiers who fight on the frontline rely on the supplies heavily, and you have to organize supple drops to them to ensure their survival. Such deliveries include weapons, fortification and materials to replenish health and to repair buildings. The game encourages the players to work together to use the resources and materials more efficiently and to gain an advantage over other players. Players can plan and execute war activities together, as well as coordinate their actions using a map-marking system. Others notice each player’s effort in the same team, and that allows them to rise through the ranks by receiving commendations for their support.

To win a war in Foxhole, the players must accumulate and secure a specific number of victory points across the entire world map. They must coordinate their logistics and armies to capture the enemy bases and advance through the technology tree that provides them with technology parts and unlock new weapons and nuclear rockets to increase their power even further. Such wars can go on for weeks, and the game also includes a real-time day-night cycle.

Foxhole fits both casual and hardcore gamers because of the flexibility of different tasks, and each team member has a unique playstyle and uniquely helps the team. The community keeps the worlds alive, and the developers continuously support the game with new updates and more content for the players.
