by Rainier on March 13, 2008 @ 1:05 a.m. PDT

World under Siege: European Front is a classic WWIII turn-based strategy which focuses mostly on battles and tactics, therefore the game will feature a limited amount of micro-management, enough to add another dimension of game play, while not boring the player at the same time.

When Cateia Games were designing this game, they tried to do some dynamic and fast rolling TBS. In the same time Cateia wanted to ensure many hours of gameplay and avoid the game becoming repetetive. Therefore, it was decided to focus mostly on battles and tactics. The game will feature a limited ammount of micro management, enough to add another dimension of gameplay, while not boring the player at the same time.

From far and cold Russia and Scandinavia, down to hot sands of Africa. Everything matters!

The success of the army is not simply its size and type. The lack of ammo and supplies may change the course of any battle! And not to mention army morale, officer leadership, spies, encrypting messages, using engineers to cut off enemy units and supplies...

WuS:EF is using the latest 3D effects and features of your video card such as shader model 2.0 and 3.0, per-pixel lighting with many light sources, normal and parallax mapping, HDR light and a whole lot of particle effects. If you have a slower PC, you can always scale down these effects and still enjoj the game-play.
