'Outfront 2' - 6 New Screens

by Rainier on Jan. 22, 2008 @ 10:52 p.m. PST

Outfront 2 starts were Faces of War ended and delivers a lot of improvements, rework of the sound environment, new interface, new netcode, router support, ranking, reworked lobby and new game modes, as well as some performance tweaks.

Outfront 2 is the follow up to Soldiers: Heroes of World War II, developed by Best Way, featuring a completely unique gameplay compared to any other RTS game out in the market. WW2 again? No, completely new. No base building, no unit producing, no tanks with healthbars instead you will recieve a fully tactical gameplay, the most accurate armor penetration system ever, lethal weapons of 6 playable nations and much more! But the most outstanding feature: Direct control each single unit you have and fight the battle yourself, as a soldier, tank crew or gun commander!

Outfront 2 starts were Soldiers ended, it delivers improved physics which allows you to destroy whole maps on a level of detail you never saw before, the newly developed armor penetration physics calculate the impact angle of every single projectile in accordance to the historic armor value of each vehicle. Every tank has the sound of its original, dropping you in a fully cinematic and authentic sound experience, which hardly can be described. As this wouldn’t be enough, you will enjoy a really useful and unique feature: Direct control! Take over the control of every single soldier you have, or drive tanks and other vehicles, set up ambushes with antitank guns and blow your enemies up with precise and deadly aimed shots at their weak spots!

Feel the adrenaline when an enemy Tiger crosses the roads, or feel the enemies fear when he hears the sound of a deadly German Panther tank, which is driven by you!

Type 97 Chi-Ha (Armor: 25-7mm)

Chi-Ha was the main battle tank of IJA during WWII. Moderate armour and good speed, but its shortbarrelled gun was useless against other tanks. Chi-Ha was use until the end of WWII in all battlefields.

Type 1 Ho-Ni 1 (Armor: 25-7mm)

Ho-Ni is the Selfpropelled-gun mounting a 75 mm gun on the hull of Chi-Ha. The mounted gun is Type 90 field gun. Used in Burma and the Philippines in the last WWII.

Type 1 47mm anti-tank gun

After the Nomonhan Incident, IJA started the development of a new anti-tank gun, considering that Type 94 would be ineffective against new Soviet tanks. However, Type 1 was late to the opening of the Pacific War and Japanese infantries had to fight desperately against Allied M3 Light Tank. This AT was also used as the main gun of Shinhoto Chi-Ha.
