Hey ho, let’s go! Blitzkrieg 3 released

Real-time tactical World War 2 'em up Blitzkrieg 3 [official site] launched today. It's been a long time coming, as Blitzkrieg 2 came out twelve years ago and 3 has been in early access for two.

Blitzkrieg 3 claims world’s first RTS neural net, Boris

Ah, the hallowed neural net! For decades, video game developers have tried to create a digital brain, trap it in a box, and teach it to wage war on humans. The first game I remember claiming to have a neural net was Derek Smart's Battlecruiser 3000AD and now, twenty years later, Blitzkrieg 3 [official site] says it's got one. Developers Nival claim that their artificial…

Blitzkrieg 3 Multiplayer Is All About That Base

Four people watch as my last infantryman falls to lead producer Oleg Burenko's stupid (read: expertly placed) base defence systems at the Blitzkrieg 3 preview event. Then four people watch the big screen as the game runs through a replay of my failure. Oleg is now my nemesis although I do not know enough Russian to actually tell him so. Monday's to-do list therefore reads:…

Winning The War For The Nazis: Blitzkrieg 3

I've grown weary of the repetition and lack of ambition that underpins the current state of both Men of War and King's Bounty. Blitzkrieg 3 offers an answer to my tiredness: first, in that it's a long-dormant strategy series with a different take on the well-tread battlefields of World War 2; second in that it's by Nival, the studio which makes King's Bounty, returning to…
