1C Company announces development of Nuclear Union, a "large-scale" post-apocalyptic role-playing game in the works at Men of War developer Best Way. The Nuclear Union Website is online with a debut trailer, and here's a bit on the game:
Every child knows the glorious story that lead to today. When the Capitalist Alliance lead by the Americans refused to allow our defensive screen in Cuba, in 1962, and then attacked us with nuclear weapons. However our Motherland and the Soviet Forces were better prepared than the dogs knew. We leveled them, and half the planet, to show our sickle is sharp and the hammer hits hard indeed!
While the Americans celebrated that they reduced Moscow to rubble, our air defenses kept the city from becoming ash. Almost the entire planet surface was contaminated by their bombs, but it didnít matter as we had moved underground days before. The Soviet Union did what we have always done, survived. The country underwent a massive evacuation of the most important citizens, leaders and industries to a pre-built network of specifically equipped bunkers.
Itís 50 years later, 2012, and our glorious capital city, Pobedograd (Victory City), is a beacon of hope. Itís time to go outside again brothers and sisters, time to see what has become of our Motherland and her proud cities and towns. Grab a weapon and join us!
Not sure it's really Metro, I'd just say "Soviet version of Fallout". Metro was about a modern-day nuclear war and then life 20 yrs from now. Like Fallout, this is about a war during the height of the Cold War and then decades later people living in current times.
That said, this could be very good...or it could fail, it's all about the execution because the concept is sound.
