Coming in under the radar, History: Legends of War will be hitting stores on the 8th March and available on Xbox 360, PS3, PC and PS Vita. HLOW was created with an extensive single player campaign mode (with over 20 missions), set in historical locations and incorporating real life missions and situations – this gives you the unique opportunity to command your troops through genuine battle environments and operations.
These brand new screenshots give a glimpse of the scenarios you will encounter while commanding your squad:
Gameplay combines the mechanics of a turn based strategy with the depth of a tactical warfare game, simultaneously bringing in RPG elements – lead your units from the bloody beaches of Normandy to the war torn streets of Berlin, developing their abilities along the way.
Compared with strategy kings XCOM and Company of Heroes, HLOW will apparently bring a whole new level of depth and realism to the genre. With over 30 unique unit types (including Infantry, Armoured Vehicles and Aircraft) and a vast armoury of weapons to choose from, each mission poses a unique challenge as you need to choose the right units and weaponry for the task.
HLOW has been developed by strategy gaming experts Slitherine and builds on the huge success of History Great Battles Medieval. The tie in with the History Channel brings a level of depth unparalleled in the strategy game genre and introduces a level of detail that was previously only imaginable in the blockbuster movie genre!
XCOM with tanks? Interesting idea, keep an eye out for more info soon.
