World in Conflict Official Trailer 7
This exclusive trailer gives you a taste of what to expect from World in Conflict.
This game is actually a bit stupid because the soviets and americans would both get totally anhilated by eachothers nuclear weapons (M.A.D) Mutually Assured Destruction does look good though. :P
God sake why can't they bring a game out like this for the 360! i would definetley buy this for 360 duno bout pc i don't really use it for games anymore
Very interesting, its a combination of history/action/military. Looks pretty cool. www.PlugComputers.com - Gaming PC's starting at $949
Nice vid, definitely will grab this game when it will come out. And I see this game has created some heated political discussions heh. Well, living in an ex-soviet state myself (now Estonian Republic, yay for us!) I can add some points. Soviet economy crumbled long before Perestroika began- that was just the grand finale for russia to save its face. Stores were empty of food and commodities, even sugar and soap were rationed for god sake. There wasn't exactly hunger (at least in more developed countries like baltic states) but this wasn't a life either. You can't push people around endlessly, people can't feed on shameless propaganda alone. And then, lo behold, it happened :) New governments were formed, backed by their people and altho soviet tanks moved into capital cities of baltic states, seized (or at least tried to) telecommunication towers it all went quite well. There were some deaths, but it could have been a lot worse. We were actually prepared for war. But, happy ending for us :) does anybody remember Baltic Chain? I was there too, it was awesome :) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baltic_Way ah, and by the way- soviet union wasn't communist country, but socialist. communism is just an ideal
@Makhdoom82 : It's controlled like any RTS game. It's just that the camera is free-roaming so you can watch the action as if you were a unit but you don't control a unit directly. There is no base-building. You select your units and drop them right into the battlefield. It's the same premise as the original Ground Control - which is available for free - so I suggest you try it out to get the idea.
lordreavan: No, not going to flame you. The idea behind what you are thinking isn't that bad, because if the cold war ever really took off into an all out conflict then both sides would have done some pretty terrible things. If you ever played the game DEFCON, then it was kind of like that. There were no god guys or bad guys, and in the end no matter what side you chose there was no real winner in the game, it was just who had greater losses than the other in millions.
Um......You guys know that the USSR wasn't Communist, but was Socialist, but they were close to communist. This game looks sweet though and the story better NOT be someting like this *Evil Russian Commander: Is the plan of invading the USA going as planed? Evil Russian lieutenent: Yes commrade. they will fall in 6 months. Meanwile in the USA. Goodytoshoe U.S. Commander: Mr Presedent, we have invented the most powerful weapon in the world that could deafet everyone. U.S. Presedent: good, i will name it the Super duper megasonic photon poweerd invincible machine gun. If those evil commies (opps... to much redneck there) ever invaded we could wipe out their intire army.* In other words PROAGANDA that the USA is invincible and always has the better equipment. I'm tired of those games and want smething that dosn't involve the USA ( oh dear Criest no, I can't believe he said that. dosn't he know the world revolves around the USA that kind of thinking is BLASPHEMY(typo?).) or anything that has to do with WW2, WW1 would be great! I'm not an ANTI-AMERICAN but im sick of these stupid story lines, Oh that DOSEN'T include World In Conflict, we need more cold war themed games. Just my $0.02 and you will start flaming me in 3,2,1.
i thought red alert happened before the cold war, i thought red alert was more like war front turning piont. wikipedia says "The events of the game take place in an alternate history, where Allied Forces defend Europe against an aggressive Soviet Union" so i say, this is a little different it is more realistic than red alert with a totally different strategic model, it's more like operation flashpiont RTS. with a fantastic camera great graphics, sweat strategy and for a first fully featured and newb friendly online.
Wee! yet ANOTHER EXPANSION PACK for Red Alert!!!! do they still feature 2 separate campaign? or it's US win all the way as usual?
So many "new" RTS games are simple clones of clones dating back to games like C&C and Warcraft. Every so often a game comes along that challenges the clones to redefine and evolve the genre. From what I have seen so far this game looks to be one of those genre evolving games. Here's hoping for the best!
This would be a very interesting conflict in terms of military might and of time-placment. If this was set in the sixties (maybe 70's) America and its allies would've gotten their butts handed to them because of the sheer amount and superiorty of Soviet tanks. However, since America has the Apache heli and the Abrams tank, things are going to be interesting.
@ Sepheroth101 Havent you heard of the Sino-Soviet Split. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sino-Soviet_split if anything, the Chinese would take advantage of a war between superpowers to put them in the best position when its over.
Looks absolutely amazing, if they make this for xbox360 however, it would be much better cause i don't play computer games anymore!! breaks out in tearssss
Well it really sounds like a great game ... the graphics are pretty detailed and the combat looks very intense , the idea isn't basd also ... they just need to get this thing very well-optimized to access a wider range of PCs .
The dev team is aiming for some pretty tame PC specs. The goal is to have this running smooth and still looking good even on PCs that are several years old.
when investigating, it was clear that Gorbachev did NOT want more war. The cold war was hurting both sides of the war, and made it clear that after all these years of bad mouthing each other, both sides were more then capable to crap beat each other. Russia had and still has, huge supplys of weapons, armor, and nuclear subs. Soviet Union fell when Gorbachev called a vote, and 3/1 and Russia decided to dismember. Economy did kinda get hurt due to Oil revenue, but that was quickly brought back. In the past year, Funding for new weapons and equipment has risin A LOT. It is close to that of 1980 Soviet Union, but not quite there, but will rise even more in the upcoming years. What I see a problem with this game is, right when Russia Attacks, China would usually come in to back up the Soviets, as they were allies! Were is China? And the brits and Canadians would come in. And not just that, but if this is the 1980's, then American should still be hurt financially and power wise, due to the Vietnam war. But whatever, war is just a mans game!
I MUST SAY THIS GAME INPRESSE EVEN ME AN IF PLAYED THE BIGGEST RTS GAMES SO I HOPE IT BECOMES A SUCSSES AS C&C AND GROUND CONTROL OR EVEN BIGGER
My assumptions are based on the previous work of the author, which I consider a fair precedent. Oh and I just saw the stage show demonstration, in the game the Soviet Union went to war in order to boost their economy. So my first assumption was correct. I do agree though that people don't play RTS games for the story. Batman54 you are right, if there was a world war in 1991 the Soviet Union wouldn't stand a chance, considering that Gorbachov cut their military forces by about as much as 50% and were withdrawing from the cold war, so that was a stupid thing to say and as far as I remember the economic collapse of the Soveit Union did not begin till Glasnost and Perestroika were initiated. You could point to the fact that their economic growth was decreasing, but that happens to all developed nations. No motivation is a stupid argument, read about the five year plans. What you stated is infact popular opinion, not historical fact. What books did you read, any of them by Ann Coulter?
This game looks great! I am really interested in the fact that it is a war that we were expected to have. If i had the PC to run it this would definitley be on my wish list.
real mature kernstb, my point is that the soviet union fell because their economy just couldn't compete against our economy, it just wasn't ronald reagan and im not turning this is to a russian bashing session and god bless the USA references. If we there was a war in 1991 the USSR would collapse, communism makes you do just enough work to get your food. The quality of their industries were crap and people didn't care, there is no motivation in communism. This isn't just aimless speculation it is from books. So why don't you lay off the southern crap, I'm not even from the south, but i guess thats what all you liberals in san francisco think huh.
In response to Nikalai_88: Interesting opinion and block of text based on assumptions concerning an unreleased product (concerning storyline). Frankly, I doubt most people play RTS games for the storyline; the multiplayer and combat playability are probably the determinant factors here.
I wonder why this game is set in 1989; wouldn't '84 and '85 make more sense? Also using the first gulf war as an accurate portrayal of the war between WP and NATO is plain retarded, but also very American to listed to Toby Keith cd's instead of reading books on the subject. The fact that there is combat in the U.S. makes me think the story is going to suck, I expect more from Larry Bond. However I can already guess it, something economically adverse happens in the Soviet Union, naturally being evil communists war is the only solution. They launch a surprise attack, except of course it's discover at the last minute by the CIA. Eventually due to superior training, technology and the fact that Russians are incompetent and lack the initiative NATO scores a minor victory; leading to a mini revolution in the USSR. Back on WiC I am holding out on my opinion on the game as pure combat has been done before, as have balanced armies. So far the environment is what looks interesting but if the gameplay is the same who care? Appealing to the FPS crowd is also one of the worst trends, look at TESIV Oblivion.
Looks like an interesting new take on RTS, I wonder how the fixed credit thing plays out, does it mean there is no more base building, but just buying a bunch of units and play until they're all dead?
This looks very good and creative on all sides and also looks like they will be able to carry the game out as well as they are describing it. I love RTS games and I cannot wait for this game, because I have been wishing for an RTS game with FPS looks and aspects. I really look forward to this game.
Hey Batman, when this comes out, lets pick this up, crank up our Toby Keith cd's, and blow the non-believers to smithereens!!!! God bless Ronald Reagan for single-handedly defeating the Red Menace. We'd all be speaking Russian right now! Say hi to my friends in Kansas.
azmodan, i think what Batman means is that the russians supplied all the iraqis with tanks and equipment, not soldiers.
I've wished for a while an RTS would drop the whole base building/resource collecting crap and just give you a battle to manage. We'll see how well this is executed. I have high hopes for this one!
well azmodan maybe you seem to be confusing the destruction of the iraqi military with the fall of the soviet union. The soviet miltary was number two, so maybe you should check your history. Maybe you forgot desert storm or maybe it was a footnote in your history but I'm pretty sure we destroyed their military and you could say the weaponry were hand me downs, but they were still a force to be reckon with. As for the fall of the Soviet Union that was due to the fact that there economy could not take the military build up that Ronald Reagan began not because one day the soviets walked outside and said you know what I don't feel like being in a communist nation lets be capitalists
This game is in the same level of the great games like C&C Generals Warhamer an others.This game will be the best
Batman54 you seem to be out of touch with reality or maybe you are not a history aficionado, but it appears that some of your statements are rather paltry on the historical accuracy scale. The reason being is that in 1991-the Soviet Union seized to exist by the will of the people residing in the Soviet Union and not by the simple whim of the United States, NATO, or any other so called Western alliance. It is true that the preceding war in Afghanistan had a huge impact on the Soviet economy, which can be partially attributed to the actions of the C.I.A. However, the statement that:"we took out the third largest military in the world in 1991 with the same equipment thats in this game against the same equipment the russians would have in this game" is simply ludicrous because there was no direct military confrontation during the Cold War and especially not in 1991. That year the Warsaw Pact and the whole Soviet Union was dissolved by Mixail Gorbachev and the member states: Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland, Bulgaria, ect. So, please people check your historical facts before you make such comments. Oh and by the way this R.T.S may have potential due to the apparent success of other similarly themed games excluding Maelstrom.
