Steel Division 2 - Bringing the 'Strategy' back to RTS10 Oct 2018 0
Steel Division 2 is an upcoming RTS war game from Eugen systems, and the sequel to last year's Steel Division. As strategy games go it occupies a sometimes uncomfortable grey area between being a full-fledged wargame, with lots of detail and depth, to simply an RTS with a high skill-ceiling.
We really liked the first Steel Division when it first came out, although we're a little surprised to be seeing a sequel this soon. Rumour has it SD1 wasn't as big a commercial success as it needed to be, and online player populations haven't been great. Eugen's wargame games came up against similar problems.
Steel Division 2 won't be changing much in the tactical sphere, from what we can gather - it's the strategic layer where the big changes are coming. There's going to be a new dynamic campaign mode for solo players, which will offer a completely different experience and different takes on how the core gameplay works (with decks, phases etc...).
