Russian In: Red Orchestra 2 Screenshots

Also in new screenshot news come these images from Red Orchestra 2: Heroes Of Stalingrad. Due out 30th August, the sequel from Tripwire boasts improved multiplayer, and a Stalingrad campaign using the multiplayer maps, which will let you play as either the Germans or the Russians - two sides that don't get much attention in first-person gaming. You can see the latest images below, along…

Feature: The AA Will Not Help You

Mired And Admired: Off-Road Drive

Every year in the UK, recreational 4WD users crush 33,070 primroses, wake 6,312 dormice, and ruin the reveries of 451 nature poets. They're a menace and yet irresponsible game companies like 1C continue to glorify their activities through titles such as Off-Road Drive. I was so disgusted by the premise of this upcoming release, that I almost returned the preview code, and nearly didn't spend…

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…

King’s Bounty Devs Announce Royal Quest

Coo, here's something good. New MMOs are announced every day now. There's an extraordinary glut of them, most of which will never trouble your attention, being free-to-pay conversions of Korean et al epics that have 50 million players, none of whom you'll ever meet. However, when the new MMO being announced is being developed by they behind King's Bounty, everyone should suddenly sit up and…

Jungle Beats – Men Of War: Vietnam

Vietmen Of War? It's a missed opportunity, certainly. But nevermind, because there are helicopters, F4s, flamethrowers, tanks, and TINY HEROES doing their heroism! With those big jungles and smoky skies Men Of War: Vietnam certainly looks the part, and it's threatening to be one of those games that stops me from being a useful human being, especially since it has 4-player co-op. I'd love to…

NuPics: Red Orchestra- Heroes Of Stalingrad

Damnable over-long game names. YOU DENY US OUR PUNS, YOU BABBLING SWINE. Grr. Anyway (I lose track of how many posts I've written whose second sentences begin with 'anyway'. Anyway.) at the 1C event during which I cooed at Men of War: Vietnam the other week, I was also privy to a few more details on 2011's long-awaited sequel to mod-gone-pricetaggy FPS Red Orchestra. The…

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…

Optimus Primed: Rig’n’Roll

Oh yes. I have review code for Rig'n'Roll, "the ultimate truck driving experience." This name and that statement alone were enough to ensure I was going to try this anyway, but the promise on the back of the box that it has an "exciting story with an unexpected finale" has pushed my intruigometer to maximum. Unexpected how? Turns out the driver's in a coma, imagining…

Stalinglad: Theatre of War 2 Kursk 1943 Demo

There's two things which RPS love. One: Tanks. Two: Demos. As such, the release of the Theatre of War 2: Kursk 1943 demo is a prompt for celebrations in the RPS shack and/or a post. You can download the whole getting on-for-700Mb demo thing here. Kursk was the largest tank battle of all time - at least, until Jim gets his Elite-with-robots game idea made…

1c: All PC Games Digital By 2011

1c's international publishing director Darryl Still has claimed that retail is to blame for the decline in PC software sales. Talking to industry trade publication MCV UK, he predicted that PC software will vanish entirely from retail by 2011. “There is still demand, but retail is forcing PC games out. Digital is fantastic, and we’re very pleased with it. But it is not us as…

Wot I Think: Majesty 2

The sequel to Microprose/Cyberlore's 2000 RTS/RPG/management game has just hit, this time handled by one of Russian omni-developer/publisher 1C's many studios. I confess I've never played the first game, but I was intrigued enough by this decade-on sequel to take a nose... There’s something rather scathing about Majesty 2. It tears away the pretend philanthropy and nobility of fantasy heroes, leaving the terrible truth of…

Ice Age Begins: Cryostasis Tech Demo

This is quite interesting, if only because you don't see many people do it anymore. 1C have released an almost 1-gig Vista techdemo of their forthcoming FPS/Survival-Horror boat-based Cryostasis. It's a canned demo which walks you through the grin corridors of the boat where it's set, and shows off some of its fancier engine elements. They're particularly showing off the water and fabric modeling -…

“Hot Hot Hex”: Elven Legacy

Ino Co's latest strategy game, Elven Legacy, (previous was the honestly named Fantasy Wars) is a mighty purdy lookin' turn-based affair which, as you might have been able to deduce from its name, features elves: "A rogue human has discovered the treasured secrets of the elven race and for the first time in centuries, elves are forced to enter the world of man in order…

The Tomorrow War: Hard Sci-Fi

Russian spacewar simulator The Tomorrow War is set for a September 1st release in Europe, and should apparently have an English-language version in the pipeline too. The game is an incredibly expansive simulation based on the galactic-war fictions of Alexander Zorich (actually a pseudonym for two Russian writers, Yana Botsman and Dmitry Gordevsky). After the jump we have ten minutes of footage from the game's…

Men Of War Trailer… What?

As I've mentioned before, Men Of War is a rather excellent-looking RTS from Russian developers Best Way. It's incredibly realistic and rather formidable in its attempt to convey the Russian theatre of World War II. Quite what is going on with this latest trailer I don't know. It's been scripted up to be... wacky? Quite peculiar indeed.

Cryostasis Gallery

Action Forms have released a bunch of new screenshots for their upcoming frozen-waste-time-hopping survival-shooter Cryostasis, and I've posted the best of them after the jump. They show a number of different aspects of the game - your frozen, undead opponents, the dog sled, and some of the beautifully creepy ship interiors. Click on the letterbox images for the full sized shot.

Tank Russian

Did we use that pun before? Oh nevermind. I do so enjoy it when a random theme emerges from the internet, and today's theme is: tanks of World War II. The tank you see above is from Men of War, which I shall talk about in a moment. Firstly, the secondary purpose of this post is to pimp out the latest issue of PC Gamer…
