Today is the day Open Beta stage 2 while be available and it will introduce a new playable faction from the full game, the Soviet Union. There is also a variety of improvements in gameplay and balance. Here is some background information for you:
Men of War: Assault Squad is a sequel to the critically acclaimed real-time tactics game Men of War. Assault Squad features a completely new cooperative skirmish game mode with access to five different nations (Russia, Germany, USA, Commonwealth and, for the first time ever in the Men of War series, Japan) as well as increased realism and accessibility. Like previous games in the series, Men of War: Assault Squad includes the unique “direct control” feature which enables players to maneuver units using standard “WASD” controls rather than pointing and clicking. PC Generals can get behind the controls of a tank to smash through obstacles, crush soldiers under its tracks and fire armor-piercing shells at enemy emplacements, or take control of individual soldiers as they fight.
Be sure to check out the Open Beta and the full retail version of the game will be available February 25th, so mark your calender.
