Well, Holy Cow!

Looks like Microprose is coming back and this is one of the first three games on board




Dobey455,

Do you know if this has any connection to Anachro's game "Task Force Admiral" (the subject of this thread) or is it an entirely different stand-alone game that Microprose is doing?

For games that really require the CD to be in a drive, those drives (external) are pretty cheap these days - maybe 15USD. I have a couple. Although I still really want to get my native pre-Win 8 machine operating properly again. But maybe tomorrow I will play around with DosBox. Depends on what the wife unit wants......

Hi Chickenboy,

It is Task Force Admiral which the OP was talking about.
There is a product page Task Force Admiral on steam now, but release date is still TBA

Another upcoming WW2 Naval Warfare title on Steam is War on the Sea. Made by the folks at Killerfish Games (Atlantic Fleet and Cold Waters).

I am a bit confused as to whether longtime KF designer Paul Sincock has parted ways with the firm or not. Heard some rumblings a couple months ago concerning it. Not sure though.
Regardless, if you enjoy commanding individual ships, this should be interesting. It will be real-time, so some won't care for it.
Take a look anyway, sure is purty!

Here are the actual details from the page on Steam:

1942: The world is at war
The Japanese Empire expands throughout the Pacific where Allied forces attempt to halt its spread. A desperate struggle for control of the Solomon Islands is now underway.

How will you protect your transports as they deliver troops and supplies in the South Pacific? Will you deploy precious aircraft carriers to provide air cover? Do you screen the area with submarines? Or attempt to lure the enemy navy into a decisive surface engagement?


Major Features:
-Real time naval combat
-Theatrical external-view game play
-Play as Allied Forces or Imperial Japan
-Over 50 classes of playable ships
-Dynamic campaign
-Tactical control of aircraft (not a flight simulator)
-Fight fires, counter flood compartments and repair ships
-Sink ships using realistic buoyancy physics
-Historical missions based on actual naval engagements

Yes, I am also following War on the Sea as I loved their other sub game Cold Waters a lot, even if it was a bit simplistic. Another update for my most anticipated game...frankly this game can't come soon enough. Luckily, busy real life stuff keeps me distracted in the mean time.



UPDATE HERE

Yes, and what's more, Wild Bill is at the helm. Perhaps he can talk Sid Meier into coming back for a few guest appearances. Those two got me hooked on wargaming for good.
