The US Army figures into Eugen Systems’ upcoming RTS Act of Aggression in a big way, serving as one of the game’s three factions.
A throwback real-time strategy title, Act of Aggression stars a trio of armies. The US force that you saw above, is the first to be detailed and is a pretty interesting departure from the American-type forces that you usually see in games like this. This is an Army that’s a veteran force sure, but they’re also one that’s not all that versatile.
What they give up in flexibility though, they make up for with pure firepower as they own some of the strongest units in the game. Their M1 Abrams Tusk tank for instance, is totally upgradable, and one of the toughest war machine in Act of Aggression. As for the other two armies, the Cartel and the Chimera, videos will more than likely be along sometime soon for them as well.
For now though, have a read through the bullets for each below. Act of Aggression will be hitting the PC some time this Spring.
- The Cartel, stealthy operatives born out of private military contracts, with the latest prototypes. Fragile and expensive, but stealthy and powerful this secretive faction is difficult to master.
- The US Army, exhausted by endless fighting across the world, are a brute-force of veterans; they can skill up in specific roles and improve their veterancy, but use current generation technology.
- The Chimera, a UNO funded task-force designed to have a plan in mind for every situation. You can mould their units through upgrades into specific roles, or leave them as a jack-of-all-trades.
