For those of you who don't visit the Graviteam forums.There are some interesting ideas and concepts being brought up in discussion for future game additions to the Graviteam line up.
I'm personally interested in a Steel Armor Blaze of War(SABOW) wedding to Actung Panzer Operation Star(APOS).And posted this in the SABOW discussion forum.
"A NATO vs Warsaw Pact set in the 1970-80s.An APOS/SABOW hybrid with the option of being able to choose playing either as a tank sim-SABOW style or over all tactical commander-APOS style before the battle starts.
Battlefronts Combat Mission Shock force series has plans on releasing a hypothetical NATO invasion/incursion into the Ukraine or actually I think the premiss being Ukraine joins NATO and Russia objects then invades the Ukraine and NATO honors its commitment to help defend the new NATO partner.I think it is suppose to be a modern campaign taking place during the years 2014-15.(Please do not quote me on what Battlefronts exact plans are for their new game).
I am very interested in this subject matter,and if and when Battlefront releases the game I intend on purchasing it.But,I know for a fact,that the whole time I'm playing it I will be wishing that Graviteam had done something similiar concerning this area of conflict and era, so I wouldn't have to subject myself to Battlefronts shoddy graphics,inferior maps and micro managing game play mechanics.
With that in mind,I think Graviteam now could offer something similiar with a merging of both APOS and SABOW by taking some of the content from both games(maps,tanks,weapon systems etc...) and add some NATO forces(Americans,Brits,French etc...) and Warsaw Pact forces(Russians,Poles,East Germans etc...) with maybe a new map as well and bundling it all together and offering it up for sale as a mod package.With future DLCs to offer more content.
The DLCs could offer more maps and introduce more weapon systems, and different force nationalities covering the entire spectrum from post WW2 to the present modern day.
I would very much like to see Graviteam tackle this subject matter.Before anyone says if Battlefront is already going to do this,than Graviteam shouldn't try to emulate or compete with them on this subject.I would have to counter with- McDonalds makes hamburgers and Pizza Hut makes pizzas,but it doesn't mean they make the best hamburgers or pizzas.
For an example,take a look at some of the screen shots Andrey posted on the Russian Sukhoi forum for APOS. http://www.sukhoi.ru/forum/showthread.php?t=56989&page=14 Very cool."
It seems the developers are at least exploring some of the subject matter mentioned and kicking around some ideas,which I find very exciting for the future of Graviteam and the people who enjoy their games.I personally expect some very promising games from this company down the road and hope to see some of these projects come to fruition.
