Brass Tactics For The Win
Some of our favorite games of all time are games RTSs. These beauties have you duking it out verse computers or actual players in a game of wits, skill, and ability to troll. It’s no surprise these games have become hugely popular. Some of the coolest of the bunch are StarCraft 2, Age of Empires 2, and Dawn of War III if you’re looking to see what they’re all about.
I grew up playing AoE 2. It’s great to see the community still thriving on steam. Not to mention, Age of Empires IV is officially in the works. From the creators of Age of Empires 2 comes Brass Tactics, a VR RTS. As one of the first of its kind, here are the 5 things we want from Brass Tactics.
It’s no secret that a good looking game can very help boost a game from good to great. Because most RTS games are top-down camera angles, they often don’t get the chance to show their graphical fidelity. After all, it’s hard to see the textures on your tiny units from so far away. In VR, Brass Tactics has an opportunity to showcase cool environments to become an awesome, atmospheric game.
Let’s Us Switch It Up
A clear way to attract people to any game is having plenty of ways we can customize anything from our troops’ colors to our “virtual hands” style. We want to do things our way to win. Games with little customization get boring and repetitive quickly. That’s what made AoE 2 so awesome. There are dozens of teams to choose from with unique units with each team allow insane amounts of variation and unique gameplay. It’s safe to say we the option of choice is a crucial thing we want from Brass Tactics.
How ELO Can You Go
What fun would a multiplayer game without a competitive ladder, right? It’s a great way to show good you are and an even better way to “own noobs.” One of my favorite aspects of League of Legends was the ladder system. If you don’t take it too seriously, it’s a fun way to get a “cherry on top” effect after earning a hard-fought victory. Let’s see whose Brass Tactics are the best!
Release The Heat
If you just got walloped by a RTS god, wouldn’t it be nice to have a single player campaign to cool down with? We think so. We love good stories. There’s no reason Brass Tactics can’t have a solid campaign alongside great multiplayer content. Some of my favorite multiplayer games have a great single player experience, like Battlefield 1.
The Hand Of God
Wouldn’t it be amazing to have abilities as the “overlord” to cast physical abilities with your hands? For instance, once a “rage bar” filled we could physically punch the battlefield to kill a swarm of enemies. Remember The Hand from Super Smash Brothers? Something like that would be awesome.
We hope you enjoyed our list of 5 things we want from Brass Tactics. We can’t wait to get our hands on it to review later this month! It’s going to be awesome. If you haven’t checked out our most anticipated games of 2018, do so here.
