Men of War is probably the best ww2 strategy game on the market, but it lacks most of all one thing: a skirmish mode where you can have huge battles against an AI player. It is a shame that you have so many units available that you can rarely use in the campaigns. Battlefield mode is a unique skirmish mode, more advanced than those you can find in Assault Squad, whose objectives are the following: • Create a challenging single player skirmish with a great variety of battles. • Build a sandbox to allow inexperienced players to set up their own scenario quickly given a prebuilt map.
This version is a standalone version, this means that you do NOT have to install any previous version. WARNING!!! If you experience crashes during the gameplay or loading large maps consult the "trobuleshooting" section of the manual.
Download and run the 7zip .exe self-extracting archive. Extract the archive in the "mods" folder of Men of War. If it does not exist create it in the main folder of the game (the one containing the executable of the game). After the extraction is complete, you should see a folder called Global War Release in the mods folder. Now run the game and activate the mod in the option menu. Disable any other mod.
NOTE: The archive is a self-extracting 7zip archive, meaning that you DO NOT NEED to install 7zip in order to run it.
It has been a long journey since Global War 1.0, but finally I am proud to release Global War 2.0. Below you find the main features of this patch.
Axis Foreign Army:
This is the new faction released with this patch. It consists of Italian, Romanian, and German troops. It is a unique faction who can upgrade its units to better version by paying them in tech points. It is a very versatile faction which can access to powerful late game units for a cheap price.
AI has been reworked to offer a better gameplay experience: AI now actively advances with support weapons and artillery to siege your forces and provide support fire. Infiltrated and air dropped units now actively search for targets to disrupt enemy lines. Several bugs related to AI behaviour have been fixed.
The game manual has been reworked and now it contains detailed information about the gameplay and the units of the different factions, including their costs, tech requirements, and special abilities.
Now each faction has in-game music that plays during a battlefield mission.
Reworked support commands:
Some of the weaker support commands have been revamped. Consult the changelog to see the detail.
Tutorials have been reworked and a new tutorial for Axis Foreign Army has been added. Play it to know more about the mechanis of this new faction.
