Act Of Aggression Gives The Cold War Another Go

Coming September 2nd is a game that recreates that time in the ’80s when you were pretty sure it was 98% possible you’d die because somebody in the oval office sneezed and accidentally hit the nuke button. Upcoming RTS Act of Aggression [official site] will start down that path with superweapons to deploy when regular armies aren’t enough, giving you a fantastically maniacal looking game with the worst foreign policy ever:

Eugen’s Act Of Aggression Deploying In September

A funny thing, how Eugen Systems’ recent RTS games don’t get the attention they perhaps deserve.

Not A New Wargame, But A War Game: Act Of Aggression

Before Eugen Systems went big – in scale and, eventually, sales – with the Wargame series, they worked on two Act of War games. More traditional real-time strategy fare, they were as much about base building and resource gathering as they were accurate tank physics. They even had live-action cutscenes spliced together with machinima.
