What about a single-player RTS campaign covering the classic Cold War Germany conflict scenario? Regiments will be a dynamic campaign that focuses on large-scale warfare in the East and West German border region of 1989. This large-scale game allows you to control platoons instead of individual units or squads. You will be able to play the role of a commanding officer, not a lieutenant or sergeant.
Regiments are currently running a beta test of the larger-scale Operations mode. Operations are multi-day large-area conflicts that last for several days. There are no changes to the battlefield or losses. You’ll need to draw reinforcements or replenish your forces as the battle progresses. This is a great idea. I love that the destruction of vehicles and the defensive emplacements you have built will last for several days. Tank traps or fighting positions well-placed might be worth their weight.
As Regiments is still in development, there’s no tutorial. However, you can find a brief guide to the operation game mode. You should be aware that betas can have bugs, and sounds may not work like some GPUs.
As a child, I vividly remember lusting after MicroProse games from the store. It’s even more bizarre to see the company publishing the same games it dropped decades ago.
You can play the Regiments test on Steam or read more on a Steam blog. The playtest will last until January 31st, so there is no rush.
