3DO's latest real-time strategy game, Army Men: RTS, has gone gold and will soon ship to stores, according to a company representative. The game lets players control a group of little plastic soldiers and other units on a mission to stop a colonel who has defected to the enemy side. The game's 15 levels are set in and around a house, and they include areas such as the front yard, a living-room floor, and a dusty attic. Like the previous games in the Army Men series, Army Men: RTS is designed to be accessible to a wide audience, and it has a lighthearted feel to match its humorous theme.
Army Men: RTS was developed by Pandemic Studios, and it uses the studio's Dark Reign 2 3D engine. The game will be available in stores at the end of the month for an approximate retail price of $34.99. For more information, take a look at our hands-on coverage of the game.
