Ubi On PC RTS, Soviet Assault Launch Trailer

By Jim Rossignol on March 12th, 2009 at 10:44 am.


The launch cinematic for World In Conflict (below) amuses me. No game footage, but we had plenty of that here. In other news, the console versions of the game have entered a hazy “no comment” realm. Have they been disappeared? Possibly, as Ubi seems to favour Massive as a PC developer, if this piece on VG247 is to be believed. “Our priority is to the work excellent work that Massive has done on World in Conflict: Soviet Assault for PC,” says Ubi. And maybe they’re right to focus on that, as PC RTS games do seem to be the games of the year, it’s true.

    That piece at Offworld was pretty top notch, Jim.

    Interesting and impresive video. :-)

    Is it bad that every time I see a story on World in Conflict all I can think is “I hope there’s some Ground Control 3 information in there”? It’s like they can do what they want with WiC, I’ll always see it as a missed beat. Still, the more Soviet Assault info picks up, the more I want to play it.

    Man, all of these trailers have been excellent.

    @ChaosSmurf
    I think we’re all hoping to see a fleeing civilian wearing a Ground Control 3 t-shirt, FEAR 2 style.

    Pleaseee, we need reports on when the hell WiC Soviet Assault is going to appear on Steam.

    We (I) am in need of sustenance.

    I read somewhere (here?) that you need to have finished the original’s campaign to be able to play SA – is this madness true? While I did finish it, I am pretty sure I don’t have the savegame anymore.

  10. Alec Meer says:

    The new missions are interwoven with the old ones – if you don’t have the old savegame you’ll need to play lot in order. But we hear there’ll be a cheat that’ll let you jump straight to whatever mission if you like.

  11. ChaosSmurf says:

    Someone’ll mod in a mission selection screen, to be sure.

    If FEAR2 advertised itself by unleashing cats dressed in FEAR2 bibs into London, should Massive release an army of tigers with “WiC:SA” on them to wreak havoc off the harbour in Seattle?

  13. Heliocentric says:

    not tigers, bears surely?

    i think you might be thinking of RollCage. it was a sci-fi type racer out years ago (cant remember when but about 98 – 99)
    you could run into the supports of buildings around the tracks and road signs to knock ‘em down onto the guys behind or fire missiles and the like into the buildings ahead, it also had multi routes around the track. you could also drive on the roof of some tunnells if you where going fast enough. fun game and had a really good sence of speed for its time. anyone else remember this?

  16. michael says:

    sorry the above post was supposed to be for the Split/secound game.

  17. rupert says:

    well i dont mind playing the full thing again it was good :D

    Heliocentric: Armoured bears yes yes.

    Picked up the expansion earlier today at EB. Too lazy to install it though.

    I was slightly confused though… from the reports I read, there wasn’t supposed to be a retail release of just the expansion… I may have just not been paying attention, though

  20. unclelou says:

    Thanks, Alec.

    Oh come on, you’re just quoting a quote now!

    Other than that, great video :)

    Nice pimp for that Offworld article, Jim!
