It has been brought to my attention that one of the most anticipated releases of the year by Microprose will be available in a few weeks’ time. It was announced that Regiments will be released on 16 August. I’ve talked about this title once or twice over the past six months or so and am glad to see it will finally see the light of day.
Regiments is a real time strategy game set in 1989 Cold War Central Europe. War has just broken out and the player is tasked with leading his regiment through days of high-intensity land combat. Now, I have not spoken to anyone who sampled the game during its development phases, but judging by some of the videos I’m seeing, Regiments initially strikes me as a souped-up Wargame: European Escalation. I hope I’m wrong because there are enough games like that on the market already. Those types of titles get old really quick so hopefully Regiments will break the mold.
Either way, I’m downloading it at 12:01 AM 16 August and will review it before the end of summer. If I don’t like it, expect a review even sooner. 😊
Back to D+24 tomorrow evening. Hope you’re all having a good weekend. –Mike
