Victory Kickstarter

This Kickstarter just launched by Petroglyph seeks $700K to fund Victory, the just revealed World War II action/strategy game. The Victory Website currently redirects to the Kickstarter, which offers this elevator pitch from Oksana Kubushyna, Victory project lead: "If World of Tanks, StarCraft and League of Legends had a baby, it would be Victory." There are interviews with Petroglyph about the project on Strategy Informer where they chat with lead designer Evan Humphreys and on IncGamers where they speak to an unnamed person or persons at Petroglyph, and receive the fairly standard reassurance about microtransactions: "Players will be able to spend real world currency on items in Victory. However, Victory is not a game about buying power everything can be obtained by purchases with the in-game currency. It will be quite possible to be competitive without spending real money or grinding an extreme amount." Here's a feature list:

  • World War II setting
  • Online team vs. team battle arena
  • Choose units from your collection to bring into each match
  • Command squads of units using RTS-like controls and viewpoint
  • Win by capturing and holding key map locations or by destroying all enemy units
  • If all your units are destroyed, you are out of the match; continue to observe or leave and join a new one
  • Each match typically lasts 15-20 minutes
  • Your units become more powerful after each match, and you earn in-game currency
  • Spend your in-game currency to buy booster Commander Packs containing random, collectible units and more
  • For PC / Windows
  • Victory is not an RTS - there is no base-building or resource management
