With the announcement of a sequel to Men of War, the RTS resurgence continues. Men of War 2 will return to World War II featuring storey campaigns on both the Western and Eastern Fronts, allowing you to play as the Allies or the Soviets in singleplayer or co-op with up to five players. It seems unlikely that the voice acting will be as good as the original.
The old direct control system, which allowed you to drop down and inspect things from the perspective of a single soldier, will return, presumably enhanced into something called Direct Vision, which allows you to "focus solely on one unit at a time and upgrade, change, or repair equipment on the fly." Players will be able to "manage attritional battles and break through undefended lines to advance the sections of maps under control, building trenches and supporting troops in newly won territory" thanks to a front line feature that claims to recreate the push-and-pull of war with moving borders.
Players can compete as the Allies, Soviets, or Germans on skirmish and challenge maps, or work together against AI troops in online multiplayer. It will also have complete mod support.
The sequel to Men of War is being developed by Best Way and released by 1C Entertainment. In 2022, it should be accessible on Steam.
