Iâ€™m never one to turn down an RTS, especially one that harkens back to the roots of the genre, and you shouldn’t either. Eugen Systems, mostly known for their million seller â€˜War Gamesâ€™ Series, are creating Act of Aggression; their latest title will mix classic RTS elements with some modernization on the side.Â Check out a breakdown of each faction from their press release.Â In Acts of Aggression, you will play as one of three factions: The Cartel, The U.S. Army and The Chimera. Each faction will play a bit differently than the last, especially during combat. You will be in charge of everything from combat to base management, all set on modern day maps.
- The Cartel, stealthy operatives born out of private military contracts, with the latest prototypes. Fragile and expensive, but stealthy and powerful this secretive faction is difficult to master.
- The US Army, exhausted by endless fighting across the world, are a brute-force of veterans; they can skill up in specific roles and improve their veterancy, but use current generation technology.
- The Chimera, a UNO funded task-force designed to have a plan in mind for every situation. You can mould their units through upgrades into specific roles, or leave them as a jack-of-all-trades
To further the ignite your nostalgia, take a peek at some footage of pre-alpha gameplay below.
Acts of Aggression will have a VIP Multiplayer Beta in the coming months. The full game will release in Spring 2015 on PC.
