Eugen Systems' classic-style RTS Act of Aggression will be available on September 2, the developer has announced. Pre-ordering the game on Steam will net you a 15% discount, plus early access to the game's Multiplayer Beta.
There's no word on the exact date the Beta will open yet, but Eugen says it should be "sometime in mid-July". It will allow players to try their hand at the game's three distinct factions; the Cartel (kind of like LulzSec with access to tanks and rocket launchers), the US Army, and the UN Chimera task force.
"That will be the perfect opportunity for virtual commanders to start mastering the 3 factions and the core mechanics of the game a few weeks before the title releases," says Eugen, regarding the Beta. "Players will be able to share their experience with the teams at Eugen Systems for the ultimate balancing! The Beta will be updated with new content throughout summer."
