Strategize in Real-Time!
RTS games are an acquired taste. Either they are your thing or they are very not your thing. If they are your thing, you may want to keep an eye out for Tempest Rising. It takes “classic real-time strategy” and mixes it with an alternate history setting.
The announcement trailer for Tempest Rising shows us a brief synopsis of what they game is all about. The alternate history branches from ours after the Cuban Missile Crisis, when World War 3 breaks out. After power dynamics around the world shift, a new power source called Tempest becomes the most sought after substance to control the war.
We do not have very much information beyond what the trailer shows us, but there will be three distinct factions. One looks like a blue, armored, space marine-type of group. Another appears to be a red group drawing its sense of fashion from Judge Dredd.
Experience #TempestRising, a classic real-time strategy game set in a thrilling alternative history war scenario.
