    BACKGROUND INFORMATION

    Men of War: Assault Squad is a sequel to the critically acclaimed real-time tactics game Men of War. Assault Squad features a completely new cooperative skirmish game mode with access to five different nations (Russia, Germany, USA, Commonwealth and, for the first time ever in the Men of War series, Japan) as well as increased realism and accessibility. Like previous games in the series, Men of War: Assault Squad includes the unique "direct control" feature which enables players to maneuver units using standard "WASD" controls rather than pointing and clicking. PC Generals can get behind the controls of a tank to smash through obstacles, crush soldiers under its tracks and fire armor-piercing shells at enemy emplacements, or take control of individual soldiers as they fight.



    KEY FEATURES

    - Different historical settings and battlegrounds for every nation will ensure that each time players will face a variety of enemies and tactics
    - Unique hero units for every nation which have powerful abilities such as increasing units' firepower, boosting morale or providing other advantages to defeat the enemy against all odds.
    - Fantastic bonus abilities such as remote controlled bombs that can flatten entire residential blocks, airstrikes able to destroy incoming tank columns, special "For the Motherland!" charge attacks and many more
    - Improved and dynamic AI ensures that no two games will play out the same way, making each battle a new experience against an AI that really fights back
    - Choose from a variety of scenario locations ranging from Western Europe, to Eastern Europe, North Africa and the Pacific
    - The ability to play this new game mode with up to four friends in LAN or cooperative online play
    - New multiplayer maps and game settings
    - Improved multiplayer balancing to provide a more authentic use of equipment and vehicles
    - Overhauled infantry squads and the ability to buy individual soldiers to suit players' needs
    - Realistic weapon behavior and penetration values
    - A reworked artillery system that provides innovative assault and defense strategies
    - New types of ammunition that increase the depth of tank combat

      Yep, this game is fantastic. They've also tried their best at crafting a more streamlined Men of War title. Assault Squad is a bit easier to get into, with the new control scheme setup, and a lot more information on all the units you can spawn.

      Feb 25th will be here soon.
