Men of War Assault Squad 2 Cold War
« on: September 11, 2019, 09:17:12 PM »
Is set for release tomorrow the 12th.
https://store.steampowered.com/app/1135240/Men_of_War_Assault_Squad_2__Cold_War/

The legendary Men of War RTS series has finally reached the cold war era. Take command of either U.S. or Soviet forces, fulfill mission objectives and claim victory!

Control vast armies of regular and specialized units, including support vehicles, light and heavy tanks, artillery vehicles, combat helicopters and game-changing jet fighters. Take to the battlefields of destroyed cities, fortified border zones, rural farmlands, destroyed airbases and sleepy winter villages in the latest installment of this classic RTS series, in which strong leadership and good management are the keys to success.

For the first time in the series, dynamic campaign generation makes its debut. Men of War: Assault Squad 2 Cold War gives players nearly endless experiences in both singleplayer and cooperative campaign modes!
Key features:
Pick your side: The United States of America versus the Soviet Union.
Dynamic campaign generator makes singleplayer and co-op extremely replayable, with randomized skirmishes and custom army compositions.
Competitive online multiplayer modes.
Combined Arms mode: Capture and hold flag points using all means available.
Annihilation mode: Dominate the enemy or capture their base; valuable resources can also be secured on the battlefield.
Command large armies or control single units with the series-defining Direct Control Mode.

Price will be 24.99 USD plus a 10% off release discount.
Spent thousands of hours playing Men of War and Assault Squad 1/2, probably a instant purchase for me. Also look forward to the setting.

I'll be getting this too, but its not as exciting considering that there have been fantastic Cold War mods available for the game for many years. The dynamic campaign system sounds interesting though, for sure.

^ Holy yeezus, you're not joking.  7% positive reviews out of 80?!?!
Quote from: Silent Disapproval Robot
If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

If yer lookin' for the general, I know where he is...

While I'm certainly disappointed, I can't say I'm surprised. I think it would have been much smarter for them to make this a DLC and price it accordingly, rather then making it appear essentially as a stand-alone game and charging over $20. Stupid.  :idiot2:

Yes, apologies. I almost feel embarrassed for posting this. The reviews now are at around 13% and it isn't looking good.

Only 5 maps.
Units have hit bars which means infantry fire can eventually take out a tank{but can be changed on hardcore mode}.
Reused voice overs from previous titles.
Not a big variety of units.
Inaccuracies in units and their armaments.

Sometimes the best game purchases are the ones you don't make.

Damn, that's a tough chopper. I thought trees usually won those fights.

Saved me a purchase.
