Men of War: Assault Squad 2 - Cold War Announced

Publisher 1C Entertainment and developer Digitalmindsoft announce Men of War: Assault Squad 2 - Cold War, a standalone expansion for Men of War: Assault Squad 2 that, as the title suggests, takes the game's real-time strategy into the Cold War. Those interested in this won't have long for the cold war to break out, as this is coming to Steam on September 12th. Here's the Announcement Trailer and here's word:
Building upon the framework of Men of War: Assault Squad 2, Cold War introduces a brand-new feature to the series: dynamic campaign creation. Mirroring the ever-present feeling of dread that permeated the era, dynamic campaign creation ensures no two campaign experiences play out the same in single player and co-op. From randomized skirmishes to custom army compositions, players will be forced to think on their feet in the heat of battle.

Men of War: Assault Squad 2 - Cold War also marks the return of the series’ genre-defining RTS combat. Players take control of vast armies of U.S. or Soviet soldiers, tanks, helicopters and more as they take this historic struggle to series-first locales. From sleepy winter villages to fortified border zones, Direct Control mode returns, giving players unprecedented control over their forces, allowing them to control single units in a bid to out-maneuver their enemies. Couple this with online multiplayer to match the game’s dynamic single player and co-op campaigns, and Men of War fans have a lot to be excited about!

Men of War: Assault Squad 2 - Cold War launches on Steam this September. For more information, make sure to Wishlist the game on Steam and follow Digitalmindsoft and 1C Entertainment on Twitter.

Key Features:

  • Pick your side: The United States of America versus the Soviet Union
  • Dynamic campaign creation makes singleplayer and cooperative campaign play extremely replayable with randomized skirmish battles and custom army compositions
  • Competitive online multiplayer modes
  • Combined arms game mode: Capture and hold flag points using all military means possible
  • Annihilation game mode: Dominate the enemy or capture their base, as valuable resources can be secured on the battlefield
  • Command large armies or control single units with the series-defining direct control mode

Love Mowas 1 and 2, but for once I'm going to be the ignorant asshole that says "this is a mod?"

Wouldn't Call to Arms be a better platform for it? Not that I've checked recently but that is still ongoing yeah? And not great last time I played.

Mowas2 got the UI/AI/scale balance just right, though still way too overwhelming in those co-op defence missions (Maybe would be better if it was more than two of us attending family mowas night).

This just feels a little like Company of Heroes 2. Not a bad game, but an increase in battlfield inensity and lethality without the UI/AI/zoom upgrades to support it makes the experience as a whole much worse.

This is fear talking though. Hopefully this is the best thing ever, love the setting, but that trailer looked pretty bad and such hopes are only answered once a decade if you are lucky. And this is a series that has disapointed often and recently despite the successes.

I've been with this series since the amazing co-op experince of Soldiers:Heroes of WWII, which for co-op WWII small squad action might still be the best game ever made. I love the fact that the solidiers have AI to do shit on their own if you fail to give them orders, or bad orders for that matter. WWII servicemen were not robots. Even when it was bad or counterproductive, compared to something like the AT guns in Company of Heroes that would let a tank drive behind them and just ignore it it's amazing. My ideal game would be something with MOWAS detail but with more Close Combay moral shit and turn the details and production vaulues up to 11. Keep the co-op though dudes it's amazing.
