Anomaly 2 Announced

11 bit studios follows up on their recent tease by announcing Anomaly 2, a "tower offense" RTS game that's a sequel to their Anomaly Warzone Earth, released in 2011. The game is due for Windows, OS X, and Linux in Q2 of this year for USD $14.99, and they are promising this will provide a "hardcore real-time strategy experience with exceptional tactical variety, intense multiplayer and remarkable visuals." The game's website is live to help keep up with the project, and here's a bit on the game:

Anomaly 2 is a real-time strategy game that takes the tower offense concept from Anomaly Warzone Earth to a new level. Maintaining the core concepts of the original – tactical planning and the on-field Commander to support troops in combat – Anomaly 2 introduces a number of important new features:

  • Morph your troops into war mechs to discover the new face of strategy: each unit has a different mech form with various abilities to help you overcome specific combat situations.
  • Engage in a multiplayer experience unique to Anomaly 2: tower defense vs. tower offense. Play as the towers and destroy the humans or lead the humans to annihilate the alien towers.
  • Fight across a post-apocalyptic world in a new single-player campaign that offers a more intense strategy experience than the acclaimed original.
  • Carve your own path to victory and create your ultimate battle squad. With more than a million tactical combinations to build your squad, your options in combat are nearly endless.
  • Dive into a beautifully rendered world, thanks to the team’s new and improved visual engine.
  • Experience alternative endings dependent upon your approach to enemy machines in the campaign.

I loved the first one. I actually need to go back and finish it before the second one hits.

I love RTS and tower defense, but I had a hard time getting into the original for some reason.

The first one was surprisingly good. The production values were quite impressive, and the gameplay was an interesting take on tower defense (offense), enough to make it stand out.

I liked the first game as well. I'd also be up to trying a bigger and refined sequel.

I liked the first game and am looking forward to the sequel.  
Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.
