Men of War: Assault Squad is the new title in the Men of War series. Assault Squad takes place across the globe during the height of World War II and features a completely new cooperative skirmish game mode with access to five different nations (Russia, Germany, USA, Commonwealth and – for the first time ever in the Men of War series – Japan) as well as increased realism and accessibility. The expansion pack will deliver fans and newcomers an intense new WW2 spectacle with almost limitless replayability.

Like previous games in the series, Men of War: Assault Squad includes the unique “direct control” feature which enables players to maneuver units using the directional keys, rather than pointing and clicking. PC Generals can get behind the controls of a tank to smash through obstacles, crush soldiers under its tracks and fire armor-piercing shells at enemy emplacements, or take control of individual soldiers as they fight.

Hi guys, I wanted to present you the big updates we have made from the last pre-alpha build; many new content has been introduced and much more is being, while I'm writing this.

I will try to update you with new informations on our progress as much as I can.


But first let me present you various ways you can help us with this awsome project:

  • Are you skilled in texturing? We are looking for some people with experience that can re-texture skins/vehicles/props or make textures from scratch for our custom made models.
  • Ever messed around with audio files? The Star Wars universe is filled with sounds we need help to re-create or assign, our primary sources are: Star Wars Republic Commando, Battlefront 2 & 1.
  • We are also looking for coders that can help us by reducing the time we take to create breeds/script weapons/props or other codes.
  • Did you get the time to watch the tutorials for 3d exporting? Did you get your first projects in the game? If yes then don't hesitate and contact us, I'm still alone on the 3d modelling/exporting part, and it's vital for the mod!

Please, for any of the categories listed above, if you are interested, p.m. me or CT-65/91-6210.



Ok, let's start with the news, from the simple ones first: every non-working prop you have met in our pre-alpha has been fixed or re-exported and coded, I have also started using the SWBF .msh viewer tool to make the exporting of Battlefront's models more easier.

1 2

The original props+the new ones I'm working on can make up for cool scenarios, like these WiP ones:

2 2

Imperial sandtroopers check a Tatooine home looking for Rebel insurgents and are about to proceed to the next location, leaving behind death and destruction.

3 1

Imperial stormtroopers are guarding a hangar on a Star Destroyer, these parts of the ship are filled with crates that contain ammo, grenades and more goodies that just wait to be taken by pirates and scum, apart from flying vehicles they contain walkers and tanks too.


The weapon fx, like you may have seen in our previous screenshots are being adapted to reflect the Star Wars atmosphere created by movies and games; I'm working each day on new fx for weapons as well as lights, explosions and such, I will show you more in the following weeks.


A part of skins that you tested in the pre-alpha has been redone and a part has been transformed into breeds, I'm sure you'll be happy to know that the majority of units is part of the Clone Army, here you have two examples of breeds (one that uses old skins, another that uses new ones that I have exported):

Untitled 6 1

You can see that I added the DC-15A too.

Untitled 5 2

New skins for the droids (thanks to Corra_Ashu aka Jedi_CloneX2 for the models), a normal one for battle droids and a camo one for snipers.

Untitled 7 1

Delta Squad following the river's course.

Clone troopers now have voices from Battlefront 2, it will be the same for the other factions and I'll also try to add creatures from the game.


Don't worry about factions that I didn't talk about, they are still in my mind and I'm thinking about various ways of implementing them, here you can see the Death Watch APC that only needs textures, scaled correctly and be exported as an actual vehicle, credit for everything to my father that made it all from 0, great!

Untitled 1 7

Death Watch APC with Jango Fett next to it for scale comparisons.


Testing:

Probably in the future, I'll need one or two texters because testing everything alone is very difficoult and time-consuming, I'll make sure to tell you guys when the time will come.

This is the end for this update, stay tuned for more updates on our progress and see you on the battlefield rookies!

I know that some props' models shown in the images may be like the ones pressent in GAW's version for the public so here is a clear message: I rip from BF2, they do too in some cases, so some models will look the same, so please don't full up the comments section and, if you have problems, send me a message.

This game is begining of fail of series. Why? Because of bad gameplay:
Asault squad has trolled campain.
Condemned heroes and Vietnam have trolled multi.
All that games shouldnt be games but MoW's expansions.
Devs must realise game with new engine and epic campain like in Soldiers:HOWW2 and with MoW:AS's multi!

This game has nothing to do with vietnam or condemned heroes, assault squad was made for multiplayer and it succeeded in this plus it fixed a lot of annoying things from old men of war. Assault squad was made by DMS same people who made Men of war. Vietnam and condemned heroes was made by 1c multimedia who only care to make quick buck and thats all, blame them for runing the series. Plus if you want to point fingers look at the guys who made tech for this game to exist, bestway they are doing new game thats totally not related to men of war. This could be end of men of war but not because of assault squad, its more because of 1c and bestway.

Tshkinvali on fire is what it's called,

unless they're making a differeont one

TOF was going to be based on the Russo-Georgian war in S.Ossetia in 2008, I'd still be interested in it, but only if they provide a complete game this time, not a $40 turd that's lacking mod tools, editor, etc

I dont care of technology, I only want good gameplay like in Soldiers or FoW and MoW. Rest of the series has bad gameplay, but good technology. But what is more funny? Old technology game with epic campain, where u can make big boom (eg. Soldiers) or game with good stuff where u cant make good demolition (eg. AS, CH).

You can make good demolishion in AS, in fact better than mow, there are missions ported to mowas and they are better to play on AS than original form of mow. As for you complaining about bad single player complain to 1c not to the makers of assault squad, because developers of assault squad are the people who brought u men of war original. You want to complain complain to people responsible for the other crappy men of war games as vietnam and condemned heroes made by 1c multimedia, crappy multiplayer and horrible single player combined witn no support.

I am not interested in devs, men. I said this game has good stuff but gameplay is bad for me (mow without single, lol). You are right dj but u understood me wrong. We should end that theme , because we 'spammed' much :)

I totally disagree. MoW AS has the best gameplay from all MoW series games. Soldiers was a different game, and comparing those 2 games is senseless. I was a part of flamewar about it and after that I can only say that comparing Soldiers to MoW is like comparing Crysis to Half Life. Same but not the same. FoW was just a "something" - terrible multi, stupid ranges etc. MoW was jest a beginning of something new, but with problems from FoW and some new features. MoW AS is an effect of this new way. MoW RT, V and CH are a second line of development of MoW series games and they are crap. MoW AS is the second line. This is the difference...

Our discussion though is irrelevant as I believe 1c is officially done with MoW series, and with the fact bestway is doing a "stalker clone" game on new version of GEM engine I believe the only life now in MoW series is up to modders, sad times.

Yup you are right. There is tiny hope in DMS but as Instinct disappeares after each patch it's impossible to get any sort of info. We will see. Power for modders!!! : D

Assault Squad is essentially the shinier more visually appealing version of Men of War, I dont find that it adds a lot other than the skirmish mode, some new maps. some new units, and some new models replacing pre-existing ones. It's not exactly groundbreaking however, seeing as it pretty much builds off of the success of it's predecessor, I'm really not even sure why Assault squad was even made, my guess was targetting a streamlined Multiplayer platform, but the game is equally popular as a singleplayer…

Lowest Rated (16 agree) 3/10

Men of War is successful because each game naturally generates its own narrative. It is brilliant because it has character. It is great because (in campaign missions at least) you feel attached to your troops. Assault Squad is Men of War minus all of this, and is horrid. Its lone addition is the new Skirmish mode: a depressing, soulless grind against entrenched AI. Instead of wire-tight combat against a fellow human comes wave after wave of artificially buffed but simple-minded robots; in place…
