We're adding the $39.99 Standard Edition to WARMACHINE: Tactics!
The WARMACHINE: Tactics Beta is currently available through Steam Early Access. Updates made every two weeks introduce new content and features, and weekly updates (or more often) address bugs and functionality issues as we receive feedback from our community of players. The functionality of the online multiplayer experience is nearly complete with leaderboards soon to follow. Also finishing up shortly will be the single-player No Man’s Land campaign, AI Skirmish mode, hot-seat mode and asynchronous (play-by-mail).
Two editions of WARMACHINE: Tactics are available through Steam Early Access.
EARLY ACCESS STANDARD EDITION — $39.99
The Early Access Standard Edition currently includes access to the Beta (which will upgrade to the feature-complete Standard Edition upon its release), four playable factions (Cygnar, Protectorate of Menoth, Khador, and Cryx) for multiplayer and single-player levels from the upcoming No Man’s Land campaign.
Soon to be added to the Early Access Standard Edition are the following content and features:
• No Man’s Land single player campaign — 21 dynamic, story-based missions played over 21 unique maps, following journeyman warcaster, Lt. Allison Jakes through her epic journey to avenge her mentor and save her kingdom from an ancient evil. (Expected delivery: Late November)
• Custom Coloring System — A highly detailed toolset that allows you to customize the look of every unit in your squad in mind-blowing detail.
• Hot-Seat mode — Play head-to-head on the same computer.
• Asynchronous (play-by-mail) mode — Play anyone in the world, any time, without having to be online at the same time.
• AI Skirmish Mode — Choose a faction, build a squad, and test your mettle against a computer-controlled force.
Each of the four core factions in the Early Access Standard Edition includes three warcaster characters and a selection of warjack and warrior units with which to customize your squad — 52 units in all! (Units noted in italic
text below are COMING SOON. All other units are available in the current beta release.)
