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

Is this tank...
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 series, which is an entire rework of the present game from the ground up”, which is quite, quite exciting.

Hands On With New Men Of War DLC

These are my tanks. They will always love me.
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 into my grasping hands by the chaps at DigitalMindSoft. Plenty more on this, below.

Wot I Think – Men Of War: Assault Squad


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 kind of awesome. Up front I want to say one thing: people who were worried about the skirmish and multi-player focus detracting from the single-player challenge have nothing to fret about. The fifteen skirmish maps are all excellent, and are close to constituting a new campaign in their own right. But there are some caveats to that, obviously. Here’s Wot I Think.

Play The Men Of War: Assault Squad Demo

There are tiny heroes down there
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. Related to that last fact: a big old bit of writing is coming up. You’ll be able to read it soon.

EXCITING UPDATE TO ORIGINAL STORY: You can’t use that link if you have the game pre-ordered on Steam, for some reason, so go here if you want the standalone demo.
