Men of War: Modern Warfare – Call to Arms v1.0 out now

A shell ricochets off a tank hull, exploding in mid-air and killing an entire infantry squad. A sniper round finds purchase on a commander's helmet, but leaves his head intact. I've had a soft-spot for Digitalmindsoft's long-running WW2 Men of War series for some time; Chaotic, anarchic things, they're more like simulationist tabletop strategy games, played out in realtime.

Men Have War: Call To Arms Funding Drive

So here's a bit of interesting news. If you are me, at least. Which I am, for some reason. DigitalMindSoft, who took over Men Of War from originators Best Way (who are now making Nuclear Dawn), are making Call To Arms. They claim that the game "the true successor of the Men of War series."
