Brass Tactics Moves to February 2018
We’re doubling down on Brass Tactics and taking a little more time to add a lot more content.
Brass Tactics is now scheduled to launch on February 22, 2018. With the extra development time, we plan to introduce new units and more tech tree options for even more RTS fun.
“Up until now, we’ve had a balanced set of eight standard units that everyone had access to in-game: archers, warriors, cavalry, tanks, mechanics, artillery, wasps, and the titan,” says Game Director Michael Austin. “We’re nearly doubling the number of choices and breaking the symmetry between players. You can easily choose one of the thematic sets we’ve created, or you can customize your own and pick the eight units that best represent the way you like to play.”
Building upon the theme of customization, specific tech tree paths are now tied to the units in your set for a greater number of choices, while branching options let you adjust to your opponent’s strategy mid-game. “If they have a lot of air units, pick fire archers to counter them,” Austin explains. “If they have ground units, the extra tough skirmish archers may be a better bet.”
We’ll host an open multiplayer beta in January, so you’ll be able to get hands-on with some of the new developments and share feedback with the devs as they continue to fine tune the game’s balance.
“The best feeling in the world as a game developer is to take a great game and make it awesome,” notes Austin. “Once you’re at that point where you’ve put in all the features, each day and week is transformative in making the game better—momentum really picks up. We’re going even farther down that path, ensuring the best possible experience for players at launch.”
Stay tuned to the blog for more details as we get closer to the new release date.
