Flashpoint campaigns - Southern Storm (new WW3 game!)

Oh dear, it flew a bit under the radar, but I just came across this:


Aye, a follow-up to Red Storm, with an upgraded engine apparently.

More about the project there

Enjoy!







A pleasant surprise, if you ask me!

I enjoyed the battles Iíve had against grogs with Red Storm.

Its been in development for a few years now, and unfortunately been delayed for some time now. However, the devs are adamant that work continues and progress is being made, and they are hoping to start beta testing within the next month or so, according to their forums.

I love Flashpoint Campaigns Red Storm and I'm extremely excited for this to release. All of the new features and content sound great!

Looks like a modification of FCRS.

UI still looks crappy.

I wonder if the counters still move all awkward-like or if they added natural map zoom.

Pretty geeked up about this, because I think this will include the Schweinfurt/Wurzburg area where I defended the frontiers of freedom against the aggressive hordes of East German Women.

^ lol.

Recently rereading Red Storm Rising and this game would be perfect for this.

Watercooler talk....How bitchen would steel beasts be if the map view / commander control looked this ?

I hadn't heard anything about this game in ages and thought it must have been cancelled.

Loved Red Storm and the original Flashpoint Germany, though I always kind of hoped they would do a middle east version.

They actually announced a Middle East DLC a while back in a thread on their forums. I donít have a link handy or remember many details, but I do know they are planning on covering the Middle East in some capacity.
