US Army showcased in new trailer for Act of Aggression

Eugen has released the first of three faction trailers for Act of Aggression. The debut trailer covers the US Army, a heavy specialized veteran force that isn’t as versatile as the other forces, restricted as they are to current tech, but they have the ability to level up their units. At nearly three minutes, the trailer runs through the pros and cons of choosing the US Army, including their defense’s dependence on constant energy and an armed Humvee that can quickly track down the procedurally generated resources and engage infantry. Next up is the UNO-funded Chimera, followed afterward by the stealthy Cartel.

Act of Aggression (PC) Details - Screenshot 1

Eugen has released new details about their upcoming real-time strategy title Act of Aggression. The Wargame creator detailed the game’s three playable factions: the high-tech, stealth-focused Cartel; the veteran US Army, who are limited to current technology but can level up in specific roles; and the Chimera, a UNO-funded force that can either specialize in specific roles or be reasonably skilled in all. The studio said it is designing Acts of Aggression to be more accessible than the Wargame series. In addition to more traditional RTS elements, such as resource harvesting and base building, the game will also emphasize maintaining supply lines, holding key locations for extra resources and gathering prisoners, and developing super weapons.
