Men of War finds time for one more WWII campaign - Assault Squad 2 out now

Tom Sykes at

If I was in charge of Digitalmindsoft - and when the Zoltar machine finally grants my wish, I will be - I'd ditch all the subtitles and dub every entry in their apparently quite good RTS series simply 'Men of War', perhaps in an increasingly bold font in order to emphasise just how perfect a title it is. Men of War. Men of War. It tells you everything you need to know not just about Digitalmindsoft's squad-based strategy game but also about all the Battlefields, and all the Call of Duties. Of course, my plan would unravel when it came to actually buying those games, so perhaps it's for the best that the great Zoltar hasn't emBiggened me quite yet. Anyway. Men of War: Assault Squad 2 is out now on Steam, its Early Access period having come to a close.


Bonkers space sim Space Rangers HD: A War Apart sees the light of day

Games That Are Out is a list that now includes Space Rangers HD, all the games released in the last three or four decades, and of course Pippa Funnell 3: The Golden Stirrup Challenge. That is also a game that is out. Space Rangers HD is of particular interest to us, however, seeing how it's a remake of one of the most batshit Trading Strategy RPG Space Sim Text Adventures ever made: Space Rangers 2. You can find it on Steam here.


Men of War complete catalogue gets bundled up and sold for cheap

Here's another casualty in the internet's extended and ferocious war on prices. Bundle Stars, one of the many hundred financial death squads that roam the digital battlefield, have rounded up the Men of Wars and are holding them to ransom. Of course, because they're a bundle seller, that ransom is exceedingly reasonable, and gets you every game in the RTS series and their collective DLCs.

1C Company are the subject of this week's pay what you want Humble Sale. Not that you're being offered their full, expansive, and occasionally ropey back catalogue. Instead the bundle focuses on two of the publisher's more notable series. Included are a battalion of Men of War, and a king's ransom of King's Bounty. It's a great collection if you're looking for a large and meaty slice of turn-of-the-decade PC gaming.


Men of War: Assault Squad 2 announced, promises more war, men, squads and assaults

Phil Savage at

"More war, war men!" shout the RTS fans, who have become increasingly hungry for fresh humans to tactically expend through glorious battle. Men of War developers DigitalMindSoft are in the ideal position to answer these cries, and have done so by announcing Men of War: Assault Squad 2 - a follow-up to their infantry-heavy standalone expansion.

Word comes through from 1C that the Russian publisher is teaming up with 777 Studios, creators of the Rise of Flight series, to form 1C Game Studios. This new developer's first project will be IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad, the next game in the highly regarded (well, except for Cliffs of Dover) series of World War 2 flight sims.


Men of War: Assault Squad open beta is go

Tom Senior at

Men of War may be one of the most generic sounding game names ever devised, but this is a unique and challenging RTS series that blends incredibly detailed troop micromanagement with huge battles spanning entire towns. The latest entry into the series, Assault Squad, is holding an open beta now on Steam, so if you haven't had a chance to try Men of War's intense cocktail of massive tanks, fragile soldiers and extremely questionable voice acting then you're in luck. Read on for the full details.
