Trailer: MicroProse’s Cold War RTS Regiments rolls onto PC today

What if the Cold War went hot? A scenario that you don’t see all that often in gaming, that’s the premise behind Regiments, MicroProse’s new RTS.

Real-time war-fighting

It’s 1989 and the flames of a New War are flaring up. Thousands of square miles of German landscape will become a stage for sweeping battles between the best NATO and Warsaw Pact has to offer.

Lead your Regiment through the inferno of a wide-scale Cold War conflict in this new Real-Time Tactics game. Break through the lines, call in artilleryand air supportmaneuverfeign retreats, and stage mobile defenses. Do not relent.

MicroProse press release

Genre fans will want to take note of this one, as Regiments makes a pretty big and interesting alteration to the RTS formula. That’s called the Platoon Command System, and it looks to let players “orchestrate battles with unprecedented precision and ease”.

Featuring over 100 unit-types, and playable armies that include the USSR, USA, both East and West Germany, Belgium, and the UK, Regiments is out now for the PC.
