End of Nations and Star Wars: Empire at War developer Petroglyph Games has started their very own Kickstarter campaign for Victory, a WW2 themed action-strategy set in the Africa theatre.
It's the Desert Rats vs. the Afrika Korps "using RTS-like controls" in typically fast game sessions of 15-20 minutes. Our units are finite with each battle rewarding more.
However this "is not an RTS", says Petroglyph, as there's "no base-building or resource management". Instead we'll get card decks arming us with new units which we use in battle.
Petroglyph are also utilizing line of sight with units that are elevated getting a distinct advantage, as well as offering strategic cover positions to hold of enemy advancements.
Units gain experience as they're used in more battles, "becoming more powerful with every battle fought." We also earn in-game currency that is used to unlock collectible packs of "new units, special orders, and enhancements, expanding your continually-growing collection." Choosing your deck is another level of strategy and customisation.
