Steel Division 2 Beta 2 Gameplay Preview

I'm playing the second beta of Steel Division 2, a real-time strategy game by Eugen Systems.


The game has moved the action to the Eastern Front of World War II. More customization options are available for battlegroups (choosing phase availability for each unit, and how unit recruitment points are allocated in each phase). Maps now feature capture points, the ownership of which is determined by the dynamic frontline, and defensive structures are available for the assault-heavy breakthrough mode. In addition, there are commander units that add experience to nearby units and leaders, and radio-equipped artillerists to assist indirect fire. The release version of the game will include 18 divisions to make battlegroups from, 25 maps, and a dynamic campaign. The game is scheduled for release on May 2nd.
