MOSCOW, Russia July 29, 2013 Leading Eastern and Central European publisher, 1C Company, is excited to announce the development of Men of War: Assault Squad 2. This is the next chapter in the award-winning Men of War series and a continuation of the Men of War: Assault Squad experience.

Men of War: Assault Squad 2 features new single player style skirmish modes that take players from extreme tank combat to deadly sniper stealth missions.

Commanders can now faceoff against opponents on various new multiplayer 1v1 – 4v4 maps. To truly bring the battles to life though there is the new 8v8 game mode designed for huge battles on spectacular maps.

This new Assault Squad game brings significant game engine and visual improvements as well, with special attention paid to ones that were highly requested by the players. These included items such as advanced multi-core support, advanced shader technology, interface and AI improvements, as well as added camouflage depending on season/map, fully updated inventory items with new graphics and updated vehicles, sound improvements, Steam multiplayer and much more.

Key features:

·         New single player skirmishes

·         Eight player co-op support and multiplayer 8v8 game mode

·         New multiplayer maps

·         Five factions and various battlefields in Europe, Eastern Europe, Northern Africa and the Pacific

·         Improved engine / graphics / sound

·         New Steam functionalities (Steam Cloud, Workshop, multiplayer and match-making)

The original Men of War: Assault Squad took place across the globe during the height of World War II and featured five different armies each with their own unique units, vehicles and abilities. The game also included the unique “direct control” feature which enables players to maneuver units using the directional keys, 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.

More information about the game can be found at www.menofwargame.com

Men of War: Assault Squad 2 release is scheduled for Q4 2013.
