What is act of aggression suppose to be?

Postby Coffee_Zombie » Sun 17 May 2015 02:11


Update: So it isn't a sequel to Wargame but to Act of War. So yeah my bad. :P


After logging in a few hours of game play, this is not the style of game I was looking forward too. This to me is the same button mashing hyper caffinated RTS I was trying to avoid (SC, COH, etc). I'm from the Wargame community which was more of a Strategic Real Time Strategy. I hate Micro and this game is just full of it.

So if this game was supposed to be a Wargame sequel then it looks like it will fail miserably. If this is something new then it looks solid enough to find its niche with the other big boys but it is not my cup of tea.

This is NOT a sequel to the wargame series, but a direct sequel to Eugen Systems other game Act of War.
So yeah probably not your tea.

Imho Eugen was quite clear about what AoA is suppose to be:

Set in the near-future, Act Of Aggression is a techno-thriller real-time strategy game hailing from the Golden Era of RTS: the nineties and noughties. Across three distinct factions each armed with the greatest modern and prototyped military weaponry, head into some of the world’s most volatile conflict zones, building bases for mass production, establishing resource supply lines, and waging war with increasing veterancy in Eugen Systems’ - creators of the million selling Wargame series – explosive new RTS.


Wargame was more like Sudden Strike, Blitzkrieg and Cuban Missile Crisis. AoA is what it is... a "sequel" to Act of War.

Eugen/Focus never said that AoA is the sequel to the Wargame series. The game isn't even as titled "Wargame: Act of Aggression".

Also AoA is actually the spiritual successor to the Act of War series, not really a direct sequel.

Why are so many people expecting a Wargame sequel from Act of Aggression?

Eugen has explicitly stated that they were returning to the Golden Age of RTS (commenting on games like Starcraft and Command & Conquer) and that this would be a spiritual successor to the AoW series. There is extremely little room for misinterpretation.

This game is similar to C&C series, base building strategy.

Because they're in denial that Eugen can make other RTS's besides wargame.

It's supposed to be a new real time strategy game inspired by their earlier title act of war and CnC Generals, with a new more complex economy and base building mechanics on the macro side of things.

Hope it retains the good elements from wargame
