Indie developer BitBunch announces Chain of Command
, a World War II
real-time strategy game coming to Windows PCs, though a release date is not yet
specified. There are details along with some concept art on
the BitBunch website
, where they are also
accepting signups from those interested in the project. Here's word:
the course of history!
In Chain of Command the player assumes command of large bodies of troops and
directs them to victory. Battle plans can be drawn directly on the historically
accurate maps and troops will execute these to the best of their abilities.
Players need to adapt their plans as the situation changes due to enemy action,
unexpected changes in weather, the supply situation or to improve their lines of
communication. Based on their battle performance, players can get promoted
to higher ranks, greater control and the chance to change the course of history!
Chain of Command features a revolutionary control system based on the command
hierarchy used in actual armies. This system allows players to effectively
manage large amounts of troops by giving orders at different levels in the
hierarchy. Maps are geographically accurate representations of the
battlefields in World War II, created using data from actual maps of the time.
The detailed simulated environment in Chain of Command includes dynamic weather,
logistics and communication. Units are controlled by an advanced AI system,
them react realistically to changing battlefield conditions, freeing the player
from micromanagement and allowing them to focus on higher level strategy.
