One of the titles mentioned at yesterday’s Atari Live event in London was Codename Panzers – Cold War, which is due next February. The concept for this latest instance of the tricky tank game that war continues after 1949, with NATO and the Soviet army doing fighty over the ruins of Europe across the following “cold war” years. It moves forward across the intervening decades, covering the period of general hostility between communists and capitalists, and the battles that might have happened were the big blocs to make war. This apparently includes “the pinnacle of Cold War era conventional warfare including realistic battles between heavy tanks like the American M103 and the Russian T-10.”
The following trailers, narrated by associate producer Raphael Boyon, doesn’t give us quite enough close up action to see what’s going on, but rest assured it’s some hardcore RTS action. Oh baby.
