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. While it bears a different name,…

Have You Played… Men of War?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. Men Of War should be the king of Steam even today. A sort of sandbox World War II strategy game with a vast range of possibilities, from repairing and then hijacking broken tanks to stealing hats from downed enemies for added armour and any number of…

It's good for modding tool updates, that's what. 1C Company have just released an update to Men of War: Vietnam, focusing on balance issues and ever-popular mod support. A tough game on release, even the mighty brains of Jim and Tim had trouble with the difficulty of 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…

Hands On With New Men Of War DLC

PLEASING UPDATE: Ah, I got the wrong end of the stick. I have two of five missions to play with. There's actually going to be one for each faction. That makes this 350% more exciting! Ooh, I love a bit of Men Of War: Assault Squad, and now I have a bit more of it. Two new (as yet unreleased) skirmish scenarios have been dropped…

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…

Surf this, Charlie – Men of War: Vietnam

Turns out there's not one, not two, not two, not two, but two new Men of War games due later this year. Jim forcibly craned your head towards MoW: Assault Squad last week, but now there's Men of War: Vietnam too. Which I a) am quite excited about, as 'Nam is not a territory RTS has often trod in and b) played for a little…

13 Days Of Men Of War Multiplayer

Men Of War is probably my favourite RTS, and I've definitely not spent enough time with the multiplayer. Fortunately there's a grand excuse to get back into this week, as 1c explain: "In the lead up to the 65 th anniversary of Victory in Europe day, 505 Games and 1C company have today made the Men Of War multiplayer client available for free download.

My favourite RTS so far this year will receive an expansion in the Autumn. It's a 20-mission campaign in a standalone release. Russian publisher overlords 1c say: "Men of War: Red Tide has players take command of the feared "Black Coats," the nickname given to Soviet Marines, an elite combat group specializing in engagements near the shoreline. The player has direct control of new game…

This is the kind of thing we'd normally leave for LewieP to herd into his weekly Bargain Bucket post, but if we wait to mention it till Sunday, most of the great offers will be gone. So, call this the RPS Bargain Jar or something. Quite a few of you have griped about digital store GamersGate's general design over the past few months, and it…
