Shacknews - Alice O'Connor

Digitalmindsoft is working on a sequel to its real-time strategy-y tactical game Men of War: Assault Squad, publisher 1C Company announced today. Assault Squad 2 will bring the usual sequel stuff: better graphics, new modes, more maps, and whatnot.

The big list of improvements in the announcement includes "advanced multi-core support, advanced shader technology, interface and AI improvements, as well as added camouflage depending on season/map, fully updated inventory items with new graphics and updated vehicles, sound improvements, Steam multiplayer," and Steam Workshop support.

Assault Squad 2 also brings eight-player co-op and 8v8 competitive multiplayer, and single-player skirmishes ranging from "extreme tank combat to deadly sniper stealth missions."

Digitalmindsoft had tried to crowdfund a "spiritual successor" to Men of War named Call to Arms, but fell far short of its goal. So here it is, back on MoW, I guess.

Men of War: Assault Squad 2 is due to launch on PC between October and December this year.

"We discussed how eSports doesn’t necessarily have to bring games into a slimmer “rock-paper-scissors” package, and how Call to Arms aims at being more accessible than their past games, but “difficult to master”. Kramer explains that Call to Arms, an RTS set today, follows the same basic principles of their old games, to which 1C Company owns the brand, and how even if Digitalmindsoft had the rights to use the Men of War name, Call to Arms might just be different enough to fall under a different name.

In this interview, we wanted to nail how Digitalmindsoft would balance world powers such as the US, and smaller Guerrilla type militias that might be seen in the Asian or Middle Eastern map environments. “Call to Arms will be loosely based on modern combatants, but with a twist that make them asymmetric in gameplay, yet fair to play with and against,” claims Kramer."

New dynamic squad icon interface elements: Selected squads will be highlighted, the type of squads will be rendered dynamically and their equipment is checked for priority weapons. For instance, if your squad has a rocked propelled anti-tank weapon an orange bar will be displayed above the unit icon. This will make it extremely easy to detect key units on the battlefield!

The second developers update of Call to Arms has been posted:

"A ton of new content has been created so far and the game continuously improves to match our high standards. Specifically, we have made many improvements to the game engine, drastically increasing the visual fidelity while optimizing performance. At this point we think the game's screenshots are starting to show the difference, but we haven't yet reached the final quality."
