Men of War: Assault Squad 2 may be the sixth in the real-time strategy series in five years but gosh, that just means more jolly war fun for everyone. Publisher 1C company today announced that this latest one from Digitalmindsoft, the folks behind the first Assault Squad (and not some of the wonkier standalone expansions), will launch for PC on February 20.
The Assault Squad subseries doesn't strictly have a single-player campaign, instead focusing on AI skirmish challenges and multiplayer. AS2 introduces 8v8 competitive multiplayer and 8-player co-op. It also overhauls the game's engine a little, with multi-core support, UI improvements, a revamped AI, new graphics, and more. Several free new content releases are promised too.
Pre-orders are open now on Steam. It'll typically cost $34.99, or $39.99 for the Deluxe Edition, but there's a a 20% discount for buying now.
