Product Description

Men of War: Assault Squad takes place across the globe during the height of World War II and features five different armies each with their own unique units, vehicles and abilities. The game also features the unique "direct control" feature which enables players to maneuver units using the directional keys, rather than pointing and clicking. PC Generals can get behind the controls of a tank to smash through obstacles, crush soldiers under its tracks and fire armor-piercing shells at enemy emplacements, or take control of individual soldiers as they fight.
Assault Squad, is the sequel to the bloody awesome real-time tactics game Men of War. Featuring a completely new cooperative skirmish game mode with access to five different nations (Russia, Germany, USA, Commonwealth and - for the first time ever in the Men of War series - Japan) as well as increased realism and accessibility.
What makes the new skirmish game mode so unique?
  • Different historical settings and battlegrounds for every nation will ensure that each time players will face a different variety of enemies and tactics.
  • Hero units for every nation with powerful abilities such as increasing units' firepower, boosting morale or providing other advantages to defeat the enemy against all odds.

  • Improved and dynamic AI ensures that no two games will play out the same way, making each battle a new experience against an AI that really fights back.
