Empires of Steel Announced

Battlefront.com announces Empires of Steel, a turn-based strategy game set way back in the 20th century that's planned for release early next year. Word is:

Empires of Steel is a turn-based game of world conquest set in the 20th century. Players command various ground, armored, naval and airforce units against up to 20 human or computer-controlled (Artificial Intelligence) opponents.

Empires of Steel uses a simultaneous turn-resolution system, better known in gaming as „We-Go“. You can form alliances, capture and trade precious resources, research new technologies, and of course form huge invasion fleets and armies to conquer your opponents.

Empires of Steel was built from the ground up with multi-player in mind, and includes voice and text chat systems, matchmaking features, and even a download system for mods, maps, and custom unit sets all integrated seamlessly into the game! Single-play against the the Artificial Intelligence Computer Opponent is of course fully supported as well – be prepared to see the computer declare war against you, or offer you a trade!

Interesting. This almost looks like a Battlefront version of Hearts of Iron.

It does seem that way. Using the we-go turn system for this type of game is interesting. I'm a sucker for that ever since Combat Mission, but it seems to benefit direct-war style games instead of overall strategic ones. Will be interesting to see the results.

Impossible. No data from that time remains! I call shenanigans!
