'Elements of War' Goes Gold, Gets Dated

by Rainier on March 25, 2011 @ 10:08 a.m. PDT

Elements of War is a modern RTS set in a global man-caused catastrophe that resulted from the use of the newest natural force-based weapons by U.S. military authority. It has destroyed Washington and buried the government under ruins.

Elements of war is a real time strategy game unlike any other – where armies manipulate the forces of nature to rain down destruction on their foes or gain a tactical advantage by transforming the battlefield with hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes. Players will battle across the United States in this futuristic title, which features dozens of real-world and unconventional units.

Set on Earth in the not-so-distant future, Elements of War focuses on a conflict for the survival of humanity that ensues after a secret military weather control experiment sets in motion a near-complete global climate collapse. Three factions battle on American soil for control of fearsome weather-based weapons, granting them the power to use tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, torrential rains and other forces of nature as weapons of war.

Features

  • Three Diverse Factions – Battle in a near-future America as the “Ravens” (the U.S. military trying to protect the secret experiment), the “EEB” (a European coalition that invades to capture the nature-based weapons) and the “Patriots” (a paramilitary force, fighting for their country’s survival) collide
  • Control the Weather, Control the World – Six weather-based weapons allow players to dominate and transform the battlefield with tornadoes, earthquakes, hurricanes and other elements of war, impacting supply lines, slowing troop movements and devastating the enemy
  • A Visually Stunning Battlefield – A modern graphics engine beautifully renders highly detailed units, while realistic destruction physics create a believable theatre of war
  • Conventional and “What If” Weaponry – More than 40 realistic and fictional units and weapons from the American, Russian and European military arsenals
  • Challenging Campaign, Massive Theatre of War – Fight across a challenging 12 mission campaign, each massive map offering diverse tactical challenges
  • Fierce Multiplayer Action – Control Russian or American military units with 25 upgrade options, while defeating marauder gangs in 10 diverse PvE multiplayer game types
