Dutch developer ISOTX (Iron Grip
series) announces March of War
as the title of their upcoming strategic MMOTBS game previously known as "game x" (we're just going to play it off like we knew about that). The game is set in an alternate-reality dieselpunk version of the 1940s, and will feature six factions with co-op, PvP, and PvE gameplay. We have some concept art
, and here's the announcement, including word that open beta testing will commence on April Fool's day, which probably makes sense to someone:
Utrecht, Netherlands – March 21, 2013 – ISOTX unveils the name of their new turn-based strategic MMO designed for PC and tablet play; March of War. The game, previously code-named “Game X”, will enter beta on April 1st (seriously).
Decide where your loyalty lies between six ferocious factions ruling in a 1940s dieselpunk world. Grow your character inside your faction and lead them to supremacy. Take advantage of your faction's special units and abilities to gain territory on the battlefield, or organize thousands of other players to rally behind you in a greater strategic effort. As a leader of your faction, negotiate peace, wage wars, build thermonuclear weapons or conduct terror to liberate yourself from others. Your country needs you, and you can rewrite history!
March of War started releasing details on their six factions. Choose and develop dieselpunk technologies unique to each faction. The sheer size of the walkers of the European Alliance is enough to strike fear in the hearts of your enemies or pick the retro-futuristic war planes of the United Republic that never miss their target. Combining elements of dieselpunk and pulp fiction each of the six factions in March of War allows you to have the most outrageous war machines at your fingertips.
March of War will feature PvE, PvP and Co-op game modes, to start. A variety of game modes enables players to find the style and tempo suitable for them. Players will savor the handcrafted units, beautiful maps and take-anywhere gameplay all served up on a range of platforms starting with PC, Mac, iOS and Android.
