on the test. Here's a bit on the game:
a brand new bespoke 3D engine, the game retains Unity of Command’s signature art
style and delivers highly polished fluid gameplay. Easily accessible yet hard to
master, Unity of Command II is the highly anticipated sequel to the cult classic
that’s been turning novice players into battle-hardened grognards since 2011.
Unity of Command II lets you take command of Western Allies for the first time
in the series. You will manage your army’s divisions as well as their supply and
logistics. For the first time in Unity of Command, you will face Fog of War.
Reveal the unknown by capturing enemy soldiers and launching recon to gather
intel on enemy troop positions. The enemy will seek to capture your units’
stragglers — regroup and strike back!
