Order of War Demo
Good news old chaps!
Captain Xsistor reporting from the front! The much-awaited RTS (Real-Time Strategy) game, ‘Order of War’ has been released on Steam as a demo digital download. Yet another mediocre World War 2 strategy game? Hard to say. The two RTS games that I was looking forward to this year are Starcraft 2 and Order of War. Square Enix did ‘wow’ us a while back when they released their trailer showcasing some of the epic combat with large armies consisting of tanks, air support, artillery, infantry and the works. Brilliant visuals and awesome sound effects rounded off the trailer leaving every World War 2 and RTS junkie curious, if not hungry for more .
The game is set to release in Sept ’09 but as Square Enix announces on their website, you can preorder right away if you find you like the demo or if you’re just perfectly confident that this game will deliver above and beyond what the Holy Trinity — World in Conflict, Company of Heroes, and Men of War — can currently manage.
The boxed version is available for pre-order on Amazon for £17.96 with free delivery thrown in– not bad. A good deal better than if you’re American, as you’ll be paying $39.99 for your copy. Read the rest of this entry »
