War and annihilation wages on in the three (3) PC-based Real Time Strategy (RTS) War Games scheduled for publication this 2019; namely “Steel Division 2”, “Warcraft III: Reforged” and “Total War: Three Kingdoms”. All three are playable either in single or multiplayer mode.
What is a Real Time Strategy War Game?
Real Time Strategy (RTS) games of war, engage players in epic, time-based battles that require players to strategise and carefully plan tactics to score a victory over an opponent. Usually, the objective of a game plan is to take control of the enemy’s human resources in order to incapacitate an opponent. That being the case, warring gamers must also focus on building their resources and in defending their respective bases. Although in some ways similar to turn-based war video games, players of an RTS battle game must make quick decisions on how and when to use their troops in launching attacks.
Currently, the most popular RTS War Games are Warcraft, Starcraft II, Age of Empires, Command and Conquer, and Warhammer, just to name a few.
Steel Division 2
This upcoming PC-based war game carries on with the simulated World War II battle that takes place in Steel Division: Normandy 44, a game published in 2017 by the same developer Eugen Systems.
In Steel Division 2, players will find themselves in the Eastern Front of World War 2 as they will participate in the famous Soviet counter-offensive Operation Bagration. The latter was the codename for the Belorussian Strategic Operation that succeeded in completely breaching the German front line, by defeating the troops manning the German Army Group in Warsaw.
Expected date of release is on April 04, 2019 via Steam.
Warcraft III: Reforged
This video game is a remastery of the Warcraft III developed by Blizzard Entertainment and published by Activision Blizzard in 2002. It features the basic version, still set in the fantasy world of Azeroth. Strategic battles and alliances between Humans, Orks, Night Elves and Zombies are formed, to gain control of the world. This remastered edition also incorporates the events of the 2009 Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne version of Warcraft III.
Blizzard Entertainment commented that the balanced fusion of the Warcraft III elements in the reinvention of the game, were inspired by suggestions sent in by fans and and e-sport aficionados. Activision Blizzard is yet to announce the 2019 publishing date.
Total War: Three Kingdoms
This video game is another sequel to the Total War video game series developed by Creative Assembly. Here, economic struggle transpires between 3 rival kingdoms during the waning period of the Han Dynasty under a young puppet emperor. The conflict and battles will be waged by powerful factions and influential families, either to support or topple the puppet emperor who was under the control of Dong Zhuo, an oppressive warlord.
Expected date of release is on March 07, 2019.
