Ubisoft giving ace-o RTS World in Conflict away for free

DID YOU KNOW: one of the first-ever posts on this here website was about Massive Entertainment's alt-Cold War real-time strategy game World in Conflict, and for years we even had a screenshot of one of its very impressive explosions on our About/mission statement page. It was a game we liked so much that we even ran photographs of TV's famous Kieron Gillen wearing a delightful…

Have You Played… World In Conflict?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. The benchmarking test of World in Conflict long outlived the game itself, which was a fitting monument for one of the most stunning games of its era. World in Conflict still looks incredible, as it gives the most spectacularly destructive Cold War military…

Massive Entertainment Building Far Cry 3’s Multiplayer

Yup, that Massive: the Ground Control and World in Conflict devs have been disarmingly silent of late. But according to reports from the Ubisoft GDC event, they're helping to create the Far Cry 3 multiplayer. "Huh?", you might think, but hold that back for a moment - I have more. According to Vox Game's Brian Crecente In working on Far Cry 3's "online universe" Ubisoft…

GamersGate: Redesigned, Crazy Sales

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…

Eurogamer WiC Review, Sov Ass Unlock

It's a genuine relief that Ubisoft gave Massive Entertainment a new home, they're a development studio I'd hate to see disappear. I've spent the past few days getting back into World In Conflict, and I've enjoyed it enormously - particularly the multiplayer, which is as rapid and engaging as ever. My thoughts are expanded in wordy fashion in this Eurogamer review. I should stress that…

World Continues To Be Conflicted

Obama might be shutting down Guantanamo and opening negotiations with Iran, but he's not addressing the real threat to Western society: those bally Commies. Thank goodness the lost World in Conflict expansion pack, Soviet Assault, has finally been unearthed - the true tale of this Red menace will be told at last.

WiC: Soviet Assault On The Senses

You know what's funny? Being IP-blocked from accessing your own website. You know what's not funny? Being IP-blocked from accessing your own website. Also, Garfield. Anyway, I return from 24 hours of infuriating blacklisting to find Kieron's done a splendid job of managing the place while Jim and I have been offline and Walker's been away snuggling with Gabe Newell, so why bother posting? Oh,…

Tank Russian: New World In Conflict Gubbins

We've only mentioned the forthcoming World In Conflict: Soviet Assault in passing, but as I noticed a new trailer appearing, I went back and discovered further recent details. Soviet Assault's advances primarily come for the forthcoming console release, but they're funneling these changes back into the PC version. The new multiplayer elements will cost you exactly no money, available to anyone who bought the original…

WIC: Soviet Assault Trailer

The World In Conflict expansion, Soviet Assault, (possibly standalone, that's not quite clear) is also the first outing of the game on the consoles. In this video Massive's Martin Walfisz (who we recently interviewed) talks up the game, without actually revealing anything about the new features. These are reportedly voice-commands to summon reinforcements, and a new Soviet-faction single-player campaign. Anyway, there's some great footage of…

Massive On Ground Control and World In Conflict

A couple of weeks ago I had a chance to talk to Massive Entertainment founder Martin Walfisz. He's one of the key minds behind Ground Control and World In Conflict, and arguably one of the biggest influences on the modern RTS game. In this interview we discussed how the company was founded, the fate of Ground Control, how his company forged its future direction with…

Competition: World In Conflict

The artillery-splattered multiplayer games of World In Conflict that I spent too much of last year playing were quite astonishingly entertaining. The stupendous scale of the fights (NUCLEAR WEAPONS) and the wonderful way the unit-types rock-paper-shotgunned each other kept me absolutely entranced. You should have played this game, especially those of you who don't much like Command & Conquer. Perhaps it's the years of deathmatch…

Weeks In Conflict

Alterna-reality explodeathon World in Conflict was one of our favourite RTSes of last year. Perhaps even our favourite, most especially in multiplayer. What's that? It wasn't yours? Heretic. Purge yourself with a new two-week free trial of the multiplayer client. It's running until March 28th, and they're also giving away five copies of the full game every Sunday until then, which you're in with a…

Retrospective: Ground Control

With Massive Entertainment's spectacular World In Conflict causing some big ripples in the slow depths of the real time strategy I found myself once again contemplating its sci-fi ancestor, Ground Control. This exquisitely unassuming game first trundled onto my PC in June 2000 and ever since I've been waiting for a worthy successor. Playing it again in 2007 was an interesting experience. I got to…

Orange Boxes are Not the only Fruit

Yes, we know. You'll all playing a certain game. We understand; we are too. But there's other games you should be keeping your eye on, so tear your vision away from the Heavy cackling as he opens fire and failing to understand when the medic uses the charged up invulnerability thing on you you are invulnerable, so you should act like it rather than sitting…

Compo: I Sold You And You Sold Me

You can tell RPS has arrived, because we've started to receive glorious tat from publishers. And, being spendthrift grasshoppers instead of tedious ants, we're clearly going to give it away. What have we to give you? Well, Vivendi have lobbed us two (count 'em!) World in Conflict Cossack hats, which add a suitably soviet ambiance to whatever look you choose to rock. For example, here's…

World In Conflict Demo

The demo for World In Conflict has arrived, and it includes single player, skirmish, and multiplayer elements. You can download it here, at a beastly 1.2gb. World In Conflict is the direct descendant of my favourite RTS, also by Massive Entertainment, Ground Control. You can download that ancient sci-fi strategy from here, and if you do you'll see that it still stands up today. The…

Sky Biff

Like almost everyone I know I've spent too many hours capturing large red or white circles in the World In Conflict Beta. There's something particularly compulsive about trying to hold a small area on your own, while the rest of your team mills about across the battlefield, attacking the enemy without rhyme or reason. I particularly like playing as infantry and fortifying a position as…
