- WH40'000 Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising won't be out until at least March. It's an add-on to my favourite game of 2009, giving greater depth to an already excellent RTS.
- Solium Infernum *is* out, but I don't know if I could get enough people to pay $30 for it. I'm going to see if I can get a group together though, because I *really* want to play it thanks to Rock, Paper, Shotgun's writeup here.
The game isn't visually impressive, but here's a video anyway:
- Achron is an RTS with time travel. Not some gimmic where you can summon time troops or teleport people or some crap. Real, full time travel. You can go back in time and change your orders, you can go forward in time to see how things work out. You can even send units back in time to bolster your forces in order to change a battle that you already lost, but then if your opponent destroys them before you send them back, or worse, destroys the factory before you made the units then arrgleaadafalfagidghaldgs!
Here's an example of one of the ways you can basically screw with everything using the time mechanic:
Achron is in beta now, and if you preorder it you get access to the beta game.
I shall be putting them on my birthday list, I suppose!
