The game aims to keep the rts gameplay of the series intact and returns to WWII. There are story campaigns for both the Western and Eastern Fronts, where players can choose between the Allies and the Soviets. The game can be played alone or in co-op with five players.
As in the old games, players can “zoom out” on what is happening and thus control individual soldiers. This is known as “direct vision”. There is also a mechanism in which the front line of battle plays an important role.
Men of War 2 is being developed by Best Way, the studio that pioneered the franchise, and published by 1C Entertainment. The game is scheduled to appear on Steam in 2022 – there is no exact release date yet. You can watch the first trailer below.
