release of The Great War: Western Front

Regarding the launch of The Great War: Western Front, this is what you should know about this RTS

If we had to summarize this promising strategy game in as few words as possible, I’d say it’s a milkshake consisting of real-time battles and turn-based grand strategy elements; think of a kind of Total War from the first world war or, with the difference that it is completely in real time, Knights of Honor. We could even mention the next installment of the iconic Company of Heroes saga, Company of Heroes 3, which, thanks to the new mode (Dynamic CampaEsports ExtrasMap) that integrates the franchise, also seems to use the same scheme (RTS + grand strategy ).


Now, in the voice of the developer, «As a field commander you will have to make tactical decisions in real time while you engage the enemy. Think carefully about how to proceed as you prepare the trenches and place the artillery, and keep in mind that the changes you make to the battlefield will carry over to future conflicts. As a theater commander you will feel the weight of the different decisions you make while coordinating and carrying out your plan. Each role presents a great opportunity, but you must be prepared to assume the price, whether more aware of the soldiers in the trenches or your national will. If you want your campaEsports Extrasto come to fruition, you will have to coordinate your plan of attack well with the different roles».
