All we know about the game (Community FAQ?)

Postby DeuZerre » Sun 12 Mar 2017 16:19

Thought about making a post to regroup everything we know about the game. People should post to add missing stuff and I'll edit the OP.

Check out Wicca*s thread on the Paradox Forums here.

CONTENT
- Units are from historical Normandy in 1944. So no Sturmtigers, no eastern front stuff, etc.
- Units are based on the units that were present, this includes some old captured stuff, or some historically known captured on the field units and used during the campaign in normandy.
- There are towed units
-

GAMEPLAY
- The battles are in three phases: A/B/C, A being the phase with "scout" units, B with "light" units, and C with "all you got", so that battles increase in intensity.
- Phase A and B seem to last 10 minutes each
- There is no fuel for land units but there is fuel for air units
- There is still ammo management
- Morale is important with units surrendering and troops leaving their tanks when under too much pressure.
- The game mode has no zone to capture, but instead a dynamic frontline (see minimap in screenshots)
- Off map artillery is apparently directed using forward fire observers and there are presumably, judging from the UI, different modes of fire
- You will not be able to capture units on the field even if a tank/gun crew bailed out
- The income system is similar to the Wargame series, but the income seems to depend on the phase, and each division has a different income per phase (which makes some divisions stronger in different phases)
- Cover system: It seems that the infantry units can hide in individual buildings.
-

DECKS
- There is still deck building
- Decks are made around historical divisions
- Some divisions have "attachments" like an infantry division could have a paratrooper attachment to "fill" gaps.
- We know that these nations have at least one unit in the game (But not necessarily a division): France, Germany, Poland, USA, Canada (Quebec included), Romania, UK...
- The early phase will have access to units of variable toughness, not only super light stuff, but everything comes in small numbers.
-

Hey good job deuzerre! Would you like to coordinate efforts? I am doing the same thing on another forum and I could honestly use some help.

Yeah, sure, let's put a link of each other's data gathering in our OP and fill gaps that way for starters

Will they have options or at least another gamemode to turn off the phases (like Single Player or even multiplayer option?). I am kind of bummed that I won't be able to have mixed units at the start. (Not a full blown Panzer rush, but I usually mix it up to Recon Units, Infantry, Light Vehicles (like APC's, and maybe a AA Unit In wargame).

Really upset that they decided to strictly make it so you can't have the freedom to do what you want.

If you look in that screenshot, you can clearly see that in phase A, the French armoured Division will have access to self propelled anti-tank guns, just in very small numbers. So phase A will include some slightly tougher stuff, it'll just depend on your division.

Feel free to help us by pointing out mistakes or similarly new information.

I have yet to sit down with deuzerre and look over some more information. Perhaps sometime this week @deuzerre? (Before the VIP beta, to avoid GOING TO JAIL)
