Anomalous Apocalypse: Nuclear Union

Nuclear Union does look quite a bit like somebody took one slice of Fallout 3 and one slice of S.T.A.L.K.E.R., and then made an irradiated sandwich out of them. Holding the post-apocalyptic pastrami together are the binding brains of Men of War developers Best Way. Jim spoke with the team last month to find out about the switch from strategy to RPG and found that…

Feature: Men Of Post-World War III

Interview: Best Way Talk Nuclear Union

In June I was pleased and surprised to see Nuclear Union, a post-apocalyptic RPG, announced by 1c. What was most intriguing about that announcement was that the team making it was most famous for its strategy titles, culminating in the Men Of War games. It'll even be a new version of the same engine which powers this new game. Therefore I just had to talk…

Some Stalker Fallout? 1C Proposes A Nuclear Union

1C and Men Of War men Best Way are making a post-apocalyptic RPG called Nuclear Union. This is basically party-based STALKER/Metro in the Men Of War engine. Uh huh. It's as if they sat down in a meeting and said "What would really make Jim Rossignol's head explode on a Friday afternoon?" Well, they came pretty damned close. A bit more on this, including the…

Hands On With MOW: Assault Squad

Yesterday afternoon, Phill and I managed to spend some time initiating the deaths of historical combatants in Men Of War: Assault Squad, which is the forthcoming multiplayer reworking of tactical cleverness simulator, Men Of War. We weren't picky: Americans, Britons, Germans, Russians, they all took their turn on the field of co-op glory that is Assault Squad's skirmish mode. Read on to find out what…

Men Of War: Assault Squad

1c and DigitalMindSoft have sent word that there is to be a new game in the Men of War series: Assault Squad. This is intended to be an expandalone focusing on the skirmish, co-op and multiplayer elements of the existing game. There will be new multiplayer maps, and 4-player online and LAN co-op. It's also going to expand the feature set a bit for your…

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. From…

Men Of War: Red Tide Demo

(Hmm, I completely failed to publish this post yesterday, but better late than never.) A 959mb demo version of the standalone expansion for Men Of War, Red Tide, is now available. It believe it features the first level of the game, which is a rather neat battle for a coastal village. The full game has been out for a while now, and you can read…

Men Of War: Red Tide Trailer

One of the last bits of video material to turn up from GamesCom is this trailer for Men Of War's expandalone, Red Tide. This is interesting purely because it's more Men Of War in the form of twenty-two more missions, but the lashings of new vehicles, sea-based challenges (including six landing assaults) and some unusual combat scenarios mean it's rather alluring for Men Of War…

Step By Steppe: Men Of War

I've been playing through a number of the Men Of War levels again for a second time, trying to feel like I'm somehow closer to mastering the game. I wanted to break down how one of the levels plays out to try and explain the game to people who haven't yet played it. This afternoon my level of choice was an assault on a German…

Men Of War Campaign Generator, Stalker Mod

This mod for current RPS strategy beau Men of War is a bit good: a dynamic campaign generator [FORUM DOWN AT THE MOMENT, you can use this link but the mod needs loads of stuff that is not detailed there, only on forum thread.], complete with a bunch of map packs. It allows you to build a sequence of battles in the skirmish mode, and…

Men Of War Videos, Thumbs Up, Sad Sigh

Men Of War, seriously, look past the name. This is a game that is at least as interesting for real-time strategy lovers as Dawn Of War 2. If you ignored the demo, please go play it, and understand that even that undersells the immense battlefield missions with hundreds of units, not to mention to vast scale of a game that has three full sized campaigns.…

Men of War Demo (Look Beyond Generic Name)

The Men Of War demo is here (250mb). The demo contains the first level of the game, which is a tutorial sequence in which you patch up a tank, invade a village, and then attack a German convoy. It does not show off all the best features of the game, but certainly encompasses some of the most vital, such as using the inventories on your…

Hands On With Men Of War

One of the most intense Ukrainian games destined for our hard-drives in 2009 is Men Of War, which I've been lucky enough to have some time with over the past couple of weeks. It's rather similar to previous games Faces of War and Soldiers: Heroes of World War II, but since that's not exactly the most universal reference point I've written some impressions of the…

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.

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…

MEN of WAR

Anyone ever play Soldiers: Heroes of World War II? I must write a retrospective of it sometime. Though a very different breed of strategy game, it was out there doing some of the stuff Company of Heroes did, but two full years before Relic's tankiest opus - Dubya Dubya Too with hugely destructible environments, ultra-death and a smart emphasis on use of cover. While COH…
