WW2 2: Men of War Assault Squad 2 Early Access

Jim! Jim! Oh, where is that boy? Oh dear, with our resident Men of War expert on sabbatical we've been left ill-placed to cover developments on 1C's latest instalment in their usually clever'n'careful WW2 squad-strategy series. Well, Men of War: Assault Squad 2 is out now on Early Access, so I guess the brave and the bold can find out whether it's any cop themselves,…

Tanks Very Much: Men Of War: Assault Squad 2

It's true that I have special feelings about the original MOWAS, so to see a 2 put at the end of that strong, militaristic string of words makes a happy boy. The sequel was announced today with the promise that "Men of War: Assault Squad 2 features new single player style skirmish modes that take players from extreme tank combat to deadly sniper stealth missions."…

Call To Arms Specular Mapping

The super-secret RPS data-surveillance project OBLONG has been of great boon to us over the years, and most recently snooped the news that a new Call To Arms tech demo video had been released to the "internet". Having sent our agents in to observe the recording, we can now say that the modernised Men Of War really does now include graphical tricks such as smooth…

Crowded Mind: DigitalMindSoft Explain Call To Arms

At the end of last year we were pleased and then surprised to find that DigitalMindSoft were making a "spiritual successor" to the Men Of War games set in the modern world. Call To Arms, as it is called, baffled us a little by kicking off with a crowd-funding appeal, which seems to have gained little traction. Concerned to learn more - because Men Of…

Men Of War Assault Squad Gets New GOTY Demo

The team behind Men Of War: Assault Squad have announced that they've released a demo for their Game Of The Year edition, and you can get that demo here. They report that "It contains 3 playable missions (USA, Germany, Soviet Union) and 1 introduction mission." This was one of my favourite games of last year - a multiplayer and skirmish remix of Men Of War…

Men Of War: Assault Squad GOTY Is Worth Buying

In retrospect, I should probably have made more of a fuss over the superb Men Of War: Assault Squad, because it was one of my favourite experiences of last year. Yes, it was a co-op/multiplayer remix of the original, and all the DLCs meant the pleasure was sort of fragmented, but actually I spent many meticulous hours playing through this game both solo and with…

Squad Up: MoW:AS Getting Update, Sequel (!)

Men Of War: Assault Squad's men of development have sent word that they expect to fling an update at the game later this week. There's also going to be more DLC to follow, and then more to follow that, if they word of DMS' Chris Kramer (below) is to be believed. Which it is. He also says: "we are discussing a new title for the…

Hands On With Men Of War: Vietnam

This week I've been submerged in the murky jungle waters of forthcoming real-time tiny-men commander, Men Of War: Vietnam. 1c sent over four levels from the full game, and I've played through them. I've given a little overview of each of these level below, and have discovered that my description represents a sort of plan of the increasing degrees of excitement that I am experiencing.…

Men Of War: Sequels And Souvenirs

My aim? In the reach zone. My fingers? Poised over the old word-piano ready to impart the following vague but important snippet of Men of War news. In addition to toiling away on MoW: Vietnam, MoW: Condemned Heroes (a standalone title based on the activities of a Soviet Penal battalion), and more DLC for Assault Squad, 1C are currently planning Men of War II. It's very early days…

Men Of War: Assault Squad review

A little bit of a world exclusive, this one. We were lucky enough to be the first publication to get our hands on the complete build of Men Of War: Assault Squad, and I've been reviewing the hell out of it. I've already been spending a lot of time on the beta, but now we've been able to look at the full thing. And it's…

Play The Men Of War: Assault Squad Demo

This is excellent news! There's a demo available for the new Men of War game (out Feb 25th) and you can get it here. It's not really clear which level the demo is, but I am guessing it's the first one, where the USA attacks a Japanese fortified position. I played it last night, in fact, because I have a build of the full game.…

Men Of War: Fresh Beta, Release Date

Men Of War is one of my favourite RTS games, because it's brilliant. The new skirmish/multiplayer version of the game, Assault Squad, is currently in an open beta. If you have even the vaguest interesting in ordering tanks and tiny men to their deaths, then you should have a go at it. 1c also send word that digital and retail copies will be available February…

Win MOW Assault Squad Beta Access

Competition time again, this time via DigitalMindSoft and Men Of War: Assault Squad. While both RUSE and Starcraft 2 have made us rather merry recently, it's actually the newly returning star of Men of War that has made me, personally, most happy. I've raved about it. Twice. Now though Men of War: Assault Squad's beta testing phase, which has kept me amused for countless hours…

MOWAS: When Losing Was The Best Outcome

While the rest of the world seems to have been turning on the axis of Starcraft, I've been playing Men Of War: Assault Squad with RPS chums Phil and Dartt. It's mostly excellent. The game is in beta at the minute, with a busy contingent of testers playing both the co-op and versus modes of this new skirmish-based Men Of War game. That beta test…
