Second Front ? Advanced Squad Fever !

Comme prévu, ce très réussi wargame tactique, qui reprend en grande partie la logique de la référence qu’est coté tables de salon Advanced Squad Leader (ASL), est bien disponible depuis hier pour nos PC. Voici en guise d’aperçu supplémentaire une nouvelle bande-annonce montrant de nombreux courts survols du jeu. Celui-ci devrait permettre au fil des mois à venir aux amateurs du genre, débutants comme vétérans, de profiter d’une solide et très ludique base de départ (en excluant toutefois pour l’instant l’absence de mode multijoueurs).

A l’avenir le jeu va s’étoffer tant niveau gameplay, via divers patchs, que niveau contenu, grâce à son éditeur de cartes et de scénarios, en attendant de très probables futurs DLC qui élargiront les horizons des théâtres jouables (classique type Normandie et front de l’est, essentiellement, pour commencer dans cette première mouture).

MicroProse’s new turn-based tactical game Second Front is OUT TODAY on Steam

Second Front, a profoundly strategic WWII tactical game (PC), will be released today 31st of January.

The developer has taken great steps to ensure the game is a deep and immersive strategy game that reflects the WWII era. Players can also create and share their own scenarios with other players via steam.

Second Front is a profoundly deep strategy game, born from the developers’ passion and experience with realistic and tabletop tactical board games.

Second Front delivers the tactical depth and breadth that genre enthusiasts have been dreaming of for years.

One of the standout features of Second Front is its authentic depiction of World War II tactics and strategy.
If you find yourself facing a heavily defended objective point, you can’t simply charge in with your infantry or vehicles. You’ll need to use tactics like suppressing the enemy with superior firepower, laying down smoke cover, or calling in artillery to keep the enemy’s heads down.
This adds an extra layer of realism and challenge to the game and ensures that every battle is a unique and engaging experience.

Every objective and challenge presents its own unique set of challenges and opportunities.
For example, if you need to take a bridge to advance in a scenario, you’ll need to carefully consider your options. Do you use your tanks and risk coming under fire from hidden anti-tank guns, or do you send in assault teams and flamethrowers to take out the pillboxes? The choice is yours but be prepared for a gritty and unforgiving World War II experience that will test your tactical skills to the limit.

Endless expansion and battles with the custom map and scenario editors.

Craft your own treacherous maps and scenarios in the integrated scenario and map editor. Then share with your allies on the steam community. Second Front is an infinite tactical sandbox experience.

Formidable competitive AI that keeps you guessing

Second Front boasts a formidable AI opponent that will keep players on their toes. Built on emergent technology, the AI system is able to adapt to any player’s skill level and provide a challenging and unpredictable experience. With knowledge of frontlines and the ability to exploit player weaknesses, the AI provides a formidable opponent that won’t simply be cannon fodder on the battlefield.

Its objective-based approach means that it will carefully weigh the opportunity cost of advancing or defending, adding another layer of strategy to the game.

A strategy-like game that’s easy to play but brutal to master.

The clearly defined user interface, gameplay mechanics, and command structure make Second Front an attractive game for turn-based tactics enthusiasts, seasoned or newbies alike.


Second Front Key Features

Second Front features 48 epic scenarios set in iconic locations of World War II, including the Stalingrad Factory District, Borisov (USSR), and Korostychiv (UKR).
