Set for release in 2021, Regiments is a real-time tactic and strategy game. Developed by Bird’s Eye Games, and published by MicroProse Software, the game comes with high expectations. MicroProse Software is responsible for introducing a wide array of mechanics, and concepts to strategy games, making them one of the publishers of the genre. Fans have been graced with a release trailer on September 1st, 2020, and not much has been announced since, however, given the influence of its publisher, players can expect a great experience.
The Coldest of Wars
Regiments is a fictional war game, that reimagines the infamous cold war scenario that the world witnessed from 1947 to 1991. As tensions rise between the Soviet Union, the United States of America, and East and West Germany, an unprecedented war takes shape.
The game revolves around the premise that the cold war actually scales into World War III, and players are tasked with commandeering a regiment to win the war.
Having Germany as the background for this war, players are encouraged to strategize, divide, and conquer enemy terrains. Through progression, it is known, that players can rely on unique Task Forces, to bring intricate equipment, and provide distinct support options from afar. MicroProse has also announced that the game will offer three distinct modes, that will challenge players in different manners
An Invitation to Real-Time Strategy
Since the onslaught of Call of Duty, and Battlefield games released in the last decade most new gamers have a very clear image of war games. Regiments - similar to Age of Empires IV, Sid Meier’s Civilization, and Starcraft - tries to give players the perspective of the leaders behind what happens on the field. This genre remains popular amongst die-hard fans, it isn’t as popular as it once was, and this game is an invitation for beginners to explore. Relying on tried and true RTS mechanics, beautiful graphics, rapid customization, and ease of control over hundreds of units, Regiments injects as much action as it can into the genre.
The game will have a single-player campaign, with the promise of a balanced AI that aims for aggression. Visually the game seems on par with the industry standards for the genre, even if we haven’t seen it first-hand. The Cold War will be fought with over sixty authentic vehicles, multiple unique units, and four factions. Breaking enemy lines, frustrating their aggression attempts, holding your position, and out-smarting your enemies is your job now.
It is very early to truly state what Regiments will be like, its publisher however has a tried and true legacy amongst the RTS community. Strategy games have a clear player base, it’s a niche that doesn’t appeal to all gamers, because it is slower, more calculated, and time-consuming than most war games.
For those who enjoyed playing Age of Empires III, Starcraft II, Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, or Carrier Command, Regiments is a must-play, since MicroProse ushered many of the features present in all of those games directly, or indirectly.
