'Armored Warfare' (ALL) Season 4: American Dream Update Adds Ground Assault Units

by Rainier on Nov. 8, 2019 @ 3:04 a.m. PST

Armored Warfare is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online tactical military video game that puts you in control of some of the most incredible, modern destructive machines to grace a battlefield.

In Armored Warfare, powered by the CryEngine, you will find yourself behind the treads of the most modern mechanized destructive machines on the planet. From general purpose combat vehicles, to main battle tanks, and even long-range high-powered artillery, it will be up to you to defeat your enemies and control the battlefield.

In Armored Warfare, players will take on the role of private military contractors who are called into action throughout a modern virtual world. Overseeing their own personal command base, players will expand, enhance, and customize their headquarters, manage and upgrade their military convoy of vehicles, and train and develop their crews through a robust reputation and experience system. Dynamic environments in Armored Warfare require players to change strategies on the battlefield at a moment’s notice keeping them ever vigilant to the tides of battle.

Armored Warfare features next-gen visuals, dynamic destructible environments, customizable vehicles and intense team-based gameplay where players work to crush each other with the power of modern combat vehicles in a free-to-compete experience.

As part of Armored Warfare’s ongoing “American Dream“ fourth season expansion, MY.GAMES announced a new landmark deployment to the battlefield – ground assault units!  For the first time in AW history, players can choose from one of three unique mechanized infantry squads to accompany and support their Armored Fighting Vehicles in the theatres of war.

Starting today, these new AI-controlled units can be accessed as part of a pilot launch, testing exciting new ways to expand upon AW’s modern tank combat experience. Each of the mechanized infantry squads have their own unique strengths and weaknesses. It’s up to the player to decide which squad best suits their playstyle, and how they can revolutionize their battle tactics:

Anti-Tank Squad

This squad consists of several troopers armed with rocket launchers. Once deployed, they will start firing devastating volleys at enemy targets at low to medium distances. Their projectiles aren’t especially accurate and fly quite slowly, but at short distances, they can deal heavy damage to most armored opponents. They can also engage other infantry units, although enemy armor remains their primary target.

Mortar Squad

The Mortar Squad gives players their very own pocket artillery. The unit is spearheaded by a highly trained soldier armed with mortar equipment, which fires high-explosive shells that dish out high splash and bonus module damage to enemies caught in their vicinity. These shells are accurate, yet easy for enemies to evade given their high arc. If a static light target is caught in its crosshairs, however, it should move quickly or face total destruction. The Mortar Squad fires indirectly, so it’s entirely possible to deploy it behind a hill and watch the fireworks!

Sniper Squad

Snipers offer the perfect balance between scouts and infantry killers. This squad consists of an elite solo sniper armed with a massive Barrett .50 cal rifle. She can make short work of any deployed enemy infantry, but she is also extremely stealthy. Her high view range offers vantage over vast swathes of the battlefield, allowing her to foil enemy plans to flank your troops in a heartbeat. When firing at armored vehicles, she will zero in on her targets’ sights to blind the enemy.

A variety of team-based tactical and competitive gameplay modes in Armored Warfare will not only test the mettle of players in PvP, but will have them pulling together group strategies in order to overcome grueling player-versus-environment (PvE) scenarios. Players will also be able to join Clans and participate in large scale Territory Wars in the power struggle for world domination. Armored Warfare will continue to be updated and supported for years to come with new weapons, vehicles, base elements, and battle modes.

Key Features:

  • Players will hop into the cockpits of modern combat vehicles and heavy military weaponry in Armored Warfare to do battle across cooperative campaigns and team-based matches.
  • Armored Warfare puts players in full control of upgrading and building their arsenal of military vehicles and weapons based on the way the want to play offering a diverse path and wide-range of strategies to be implemented.
  • A variety of team-based tactical and competitive gameplay modes in Armored Warfare will test the mettle of players where group strategies must be employed to take on and overcome unique player-versus-environment (PvE) scenarios and other players and teams.
  • As an online game, Obsidian Entertainment will continually release new gameplay modes, military vehicles and weapons, upgrades, base expansions and more in Armored Warfare.
