The press release:
Act of Aggression's superweapons unleashed in explosive new trailer
Where diplomacy fails, nuclear war prevails in Act of Aggression's dramatic new super-weapons trailer, showcasing the intimidating nuclear arsenals of all the techno-thriller factions in the new RTS from Eugen Systems, coming to PC on September 2!
Each of the three futuristic military factions not only holds an inventory of unique and specialized military equipment and units, but also access to a variety of end-game oriented super-weapons, featuring the latest in conventional and prototypical boom.
Tactical super-weapons are a viable option for defensive players who wish to exhaust the enemy's economy while they stockpile tactical weaponry rounds for a surprise strike, as well as players rich in the game's primary resources to finish off their opponent with a bang.
To defend yourself from your enemies' tactical strikes, one anti-super weapon unit is also available per faction.
The US dominate with the Peacekeeper missile silo holding the LGM-118, and defend with the MIM-104 Patriot launcher, unlockable under DEFCON 1. The Omega Blitzer is the weapon of choice for the Chimera, a multi-shot long-range rail-gun with a wide spread. Uniquely, their defense is mobile under the name of the Antey, a mobile anti-tactical weapon. As for the Cartel... we'll be learning more about them during Gamescom 2015 in only a few days!
No nuclear superpower would be complete without upgrades, so you'll be able to upgrade your anti-tactical facilities by increasing aspects such as damage, range, and accuracy. For example, the Antey launcher tubes can be upgraded to double the number of tubes for extra security.
You can dive right into the mushroom-cloud now and start playing by pre-ordering Act of Aggression on Steam, where you'll be treated to the US Army and Chimera factions, including multiplayer, skirmishes, and comp-stomp prior to the game's September 2nd launch date. The Cartel will be revealed and unleashed during Gamescom 2015!
And then some additional news:
Act of Aggression's Cartel faction released in Steam pre-order Beta alongside new trailer for Gamescom!
Content update also includes increased Zoom out, new maps, and other improvements!
Eugen Systems' pre-order beta on Steam for techno-thriller RTS Act of Aggression has been taking the internet by storm, with players enjoying before release the Chimera and US Army factions in the game. Now, a new faction is in town and rearing to get into the fight: The Cartel, a Private Military Company sporting the world's most elusive prototypical technology, showcased in today's new video!
Big consumers of Aluminum (one of the games primary resources), the Cartel's base is a mineral hungry power-house, but their units are not, relying on raw cash to expand their military operations. Sleek, black, prototypical units and infantry will make up the bulk of your army, able to cloak themselves as you research through the Private Military (its legal front), and Block Ops tech trees.
Today's content update also includes an increased zoom-out function, following the players' feedback. Zoom-out 30-40% further and see more of the battlefield, alongside a dedicated button for satellite view, so you'll miss none of the action in Act of Aggression's latest exciting patch. Pre-order now to jump right in before the September 2 release on Steam!
Along with the Cartel, players will also now get access to three new maps, a 1v1 and two 2v2 maps with the new free-for-all game mode, pitting the US Army, Chimera, and Cartel against each other! And remember, where diplomacy fails, nuclear war prevails!
