Wargame AirLand Battle Next Month; Preorders Get Beta Access

Focus Home Interactive announces that preorders are now underway for Wargame AirLand Battle, adding that Eugen Systems upcoming sequel to Wargame European Escalation is to be released next month (Steam specifies May 22nd). These are being accepted on the game's website and on Steam, and this advance commitment will grant immediate access to the closed beta test, and there is a 25% discount for those who own the first installment in this real-time strategy series. Here's the deal, which references the visuals in this batch of new screenshots:
Wargame AirLand Battle, the sequel to the explosive real-time strategy game Wargame European Escalation, presents through 6 new screenshots some of its new battlefields, playable right now in early access Beta for all players who pre-order the game on Steam and the official website.

These screenshots show the huge gap separating the former battlefields from European Escalation to those of AirLand Battle. The new maps have evolved a lot since European Escalation: they are more varied, but also richer and more detailed, displaying impressive reliefs and huge urban areas, which all increase the strategic depth of Eugen Systems’ latest game.

The early access Beta gives an exclusive and immediate access to the ‘Destruction’ multiplayer mode, with the first 4 playable maps and pre-made army decks for all 12 nations of the game. Enough to plunge happily into the battle before everyone else, and participate in the last online tweaks before the official start of the conflict next month!

Good news never come alone: a special offer has been specially prepared for Wargame European Escalation players. For their pre-order, all owners of European Escalation get, ontop the Beta access, an exclusive 25% discount on Wargame AirLand Battle pre-order (on Steam and the official website)!

Wargame AirLand Battle will be available on PC in May 2013.

Same as the original, I love this developer; they made RUSE and Act of War which in my RTS book are some of the best RTS games out there, but this one. bad camera angles and you feel like you’re playing with a bunch of micro miniature units. Don’t care for that feel at all. Plus there’s no base building. Supplies run to way to fast. You can’t build new FOBs to try and speed up the Conquering process; you have to run back and forth to the original ones you placed. The list goes on and on.

It's not a base building game, it's in the same genre as Myth: The Fallen Lords, except modern war.

The camera angles, I agree are a bit too restrictive, and the unit scale is pretty small.

As for the supply and FOB issue, I think it's fine as is, don't waste all your ammo, somewhat realistic.

It's an improvement over EE as it adds the fixed wing aircraft. I didn't play EE much, however.

As I said I enjoy it, but hey it doesn't seem to matter what game we're talking about on blues, someone has the blues about it. Every. Single. Game.
