In Close Combat: Cross of Iron, you can take command of German or Soviet Battle Groups during WWII as you face the strength of the enemy war machine. The extensive and immersive Grand Campaign mode will give you both the original Close Combat and all new battles and operations that will test your tactical mettle. Start as a junior officer leading your men into battle in real time. As your knack for tactical brilliance and taste for glory grows stronger, earn promotions and get a larger number of forces at your disposal.

 

Close Combat: Cross of Iron still brings all of the classic aspects of the Close Combat system which made it the best real time tactical war game available, while still delivering fresh content and new gameplay dynamics. Features like unique artificial intelligence and game play elements that affects every individual soldier’s psyche provide tactical combat fanatics with unprecedented levels of realism in soldier and unit psychology and realism.

Star Hammer: the Vanguard Prophecy is out on XBox One!

Friday, August 26, 2016

The game has had a tremendous amount of good press when it released on PC and iOS last year, but it took quite a while to upgrade the graphics and adapt the UI to the console systems. The whole concept of brining a deep PC strategy game is not easy to translate into practice. Ease-of-use and accessibility are key to the console players to enjoy games, but we made it!

It’s a game of 3D tactical space battles where players take part in the Second Contact War in a campaign with a branching story and over 60 missions. The game also allows to create own scenarios in skirmish mode battles. Orders are given during pause times of a perfectly balanced WEGO system, then players watch the results unfold in intriguing pausable real-time. There’s a pretty extensive arsenal of crew abilities and assault class ships, making the game extremely varied.

Strategic Command Blog Post #2: 'Artificial Intelligence'

Thursday, August 11, 2016
