Howdy y'all! (xmasmile)

I just wanted to devote some attention to the upcoming RTS game called World in Conflict, developed by Massive Entertaintment. The Cold War never ended and the Soviets invaded Europe and USA. Unrealistic? Yes. Entertaining? Hell yeah! :D

The game seems to feature a powerful graphics engine, extensive physics like we know them from Company of Heroes, lost of units and a cool campaign. Alright now for the links!

Announcement Trailer 720p (http://ftp.sierra.com/vug/worldinconflict/other/wic_announce_720p.mov) (it's all CGI but really sets the mood).

Seattle Invasion Trailer 720p (ftp://ftp.sierra.com/pub/sierra/worldinconflict/videos/wic_trailer_02_720.mov) (more amazing CGI stuff)

Gameplay Trailer #1 720p (ftp://ftp.sierra.com/pub/sierra/worldinconflict/other/wic_gameplay_01_720.mov)

Gameplay Trailer #2 720p (ftp://ftp.vugames.com/pub/sierra/worldinconflict/videos/wic_gameplay_02_720.mov)

Remember that the game is still pretty early in development.

This and Supreme Commander are the only strategy games that i'm looking for.

Looks awesome for early development... Then again, don't all games :)

I'm confident Massive can do it though, I loved the Ground Control series.

Hehe! :D

I actually would love to see more threads about this game, I feel it is greatly under-hyped. I think it will be awesome- and this is coming from a gamer that only likes three RTS games- BFME, BFMEII, and AoE 3. ;)

I love this theme! It's why I loved the Red Alert series sooooo much.

And Owa...you have to remember, not EVERYONE is from Virginia. ;)

WTF! How can you like that poorly balanced, half-weak BFME games and not CoH!? :confused: (ack)
Sure it's LotR, but still (xmasgrin)

Game is shaping up nicely. Not really my type of game but I'm sure I'll get it anyway just for the graphics.

What you don't like RTS games??! It's basically the best genre :D

Yeah, it takes too much effort. I'm a lazy gamer. :)

Maybe it's just me, but those graphics aren't very impressive......clue me in on which part i'm missing.

For a strategy game, it looks pretty fun though. I just don't agree with the graphics being considered "impressive."

EDIT:
To make myself more clear, from what I can see it - the environments are vast and low poly, the buildings are low poly with generic textures, the vehicles aren't that impressive....the only thing that looks pretty cool are the explosions which still don't necessarily "impress" me.

Funny how I thought the explosions where the worst part. Really can you name an RTS with better graphics than this?

Nope, no I can't. I don't play any RTS games honestly. But my question still stands, what's impressive?

From my overall impression based on both screenshots and video, everthing is impressive to me. Your view on videogame beauty may have been distorted by Crysis or something? :p

Fact is that Company of Heroes is an absolutely georgous RTS game, the prettiest one yet, and this game looks even better ;)

Keeping two things in mind, that it's an RTS game and that it's still in development, it's pretty nice if you ask me :)

I don't like RTS much either. Well actually I used to like the genre before the advent of 3D Graphics accelerator cards and FPS games. Now I'd rather shoot and blow things up in the first person perspective rather than watch the fight.
