Publisher MicroProse has announced that it has added Cold War RTS Regiments to its publishing catalog.
Developed by Bird's Eye Games, Regiments is set in an alternative version of the year 1989, pitting NATO and Warsaw Pact forces against each other as the Cold War devolves into full-on mechanized warfare.
A vehicle-focused RTS, Regiments puts players in control of a combined force comprised of tanks, helicopters, planes and artillery. Making use of these units strengths while taking into account their weaknesses is key to defeating the opponent.
MicroProse to Publish Cold War RTS Regiments
Regiments offers both "short skirmishes" and "a long dynamic campaign". Its Platoon Command system makes sure that players can "orchestrate battles with unprecedented precision and ease" without the need "to micromanage every infantryman".
