War Gets Wet – Naval War: AC Out 2012

For those of us who like our war more civilised and… moist, the new RTS game announced by Paradox Interactive should float our boats.  Naval War: Arctic Circle is a sexy sounding ‘maritime RTS’ developed by Norwegian team Turbo Tape Games and sinks the player into the world of some of the most powerful naval forces.  Britain would have been on the list, but with our submarine fleet being gradually decimated by successive incompetent gove- *snip – edited for rant – Ed.*

So you have control of a kicking fleet, what’s a girl or boy to do?  Dominate.  Crush.  Destroy. You will be struggling for control of the deadly arctic seas (whether over or under) with rival naval powers to see who will be the real Master and Commander.  Sea what we did there?  *Enough – Ed.*

Set to surface in early 2012, Naval War: Arctic Circle boasts the following features:

Two campaign modes, telling a narrative from Russian and NATO sides

  • On-line play through LAN as well as over the Internet
  • Enormous area of game play space, with over 35 million square km of open sea and coast line
  • Extreme long range guided and self-guided weaponry; if you can detect the enemy, it will be possible to strike
  • Vertical game play, from orbit aerial units to the bottom of the ocean floor through a seamless zoom-able map of the entire North Atlantic Ocean
  • Detection and evasion focus with realistic sensory measures and countermeasures yielding a strategic game experience based on stealth rater than head on tactical battle
  • Great detail in unit management with fewer but more powerful units making selection and management more distinguishable and less cluttered with an unparalleled level of individual detail
  • Realistic weather model, with real world implications for tactical and strategic deployment of resources at hand
  • Real world units, with all major powers.
