Men of War: Vietnam Revealed

Though 1C Company only formally announced Men of War: Assault Squad a week ago, another new entry in the PC strategy series is also under development by the company, one that will move the franchise away from World War II and focus on the Vietnam War.

Men of War: Vietnam is "being made in conjunction with Assault Squad, but is being developed by the same studio who made [Men of War] Red Tide (not DigitalMindSoft)," reads the Strategy Informer report noticed by BluesNews.

The site describes Vietnam as the third expansion in the series. The first two, Red Tide and Assault Squad, are standalone efforts that 1C bills as both expansion and sequels.

More details, including a release date, are expected alongside 1C's formal announcement. or a taste of the strategy series, hit up FileShack for demos of both Men of War and its first standalone expansion-sequel Men of War: Red Tide.

    Never buy a game based on pictures of cut scenes! If they make it like Company of Hero's then I may pick it up.

      Uh, do you not see the yellow lines and white circles underneath people?

      I think these are just shots with the UI turned off.

      Men of War is awesome, if they made it like Company of Heroes they fucked up bigtime.

        Yeah seriously, CoH may be a bit more streamlined and pretty but Men of War is definitely in the top 5 most in-depth and detailed RTS games ever.

        So long as they fix the stealth and improve the AI then I couldn't be more excited after hearing this.

          MoW and CoH are apples and oranges. I'd say CoH was more mainstream for the masses. MoW's legacy and gameplay predates CoH as well.

      obviously you never played men of war so your opinion is moot.
