This week marks the 10th anniversary of Company of Heroes, possibly the best PC RTS ever and one of my favorite games. And it was a reminder that we don’t have really good RTS games on iOS, which is a pity given how ideal a touchscreen is for such games (Rome: Total War, you better deliver). Watching the trailer for Armored Corps posted in our forums, though, made me hopeful that we might get a good WWII RTS in the near future. I don’t have much information on the game, but there’s quite a bit that can be seen from the trailer.
There are different terrains – although I don’t know whether they are anything but cosmetic – air, land, and sea units, and plenty of units on-screen simultaneously. I do hope Armored Corps ends up being a good RTS because the platform could really do with a fun, frantic WWII game. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more, and if all goes as planned, the game should be out Winter 2017.
