Twitch livestream today at 1500CEST!

Twitch
IS it friday? YES it is. And that means we’ll do a livestream on our Twitch channel this afternoon (click here to see when this takes place in your timezone).

Today we will talk about the BRAND NEW Rommel update, and take questions from the community. If you have a question please send it as a message to our Twitch user. We will try to answer as many questions as we can and hope that you will join us for more fun, as last week was a blast with a lot of entertaining questions and happy times in the Twitch chat.

And lastly, if you missed last weeks episode, take a look here:

This weeks episode will of course also be made available on our Youtube channel when it is done.

‘Rommel’ update is now Live!

The new build named Rommel (after the German field marshal Erwin J. Rommel) is live on the servers! So here’s a quick overview of the new features we’ve added for you to enjoy!

New Features

Generals and Officers

We have expanded the ranks all the way to Field Marshal and made major improvements to the strategic gameplay. Generals and other commanding officers are now characters that equip Assault Teams, starting with their own branch of the armed forces and then expanding to other branches. Read more about the Generals here.

New Weapons: FG42 & M1 Carbine

In the last build we re-introduced the paratroopers and a LOT of players asked for paratrooper specific weapons, these are here now; the German Fallschirmjägergewehr 42 and the American M1 Carbine. If you want to know more about these awesome new toys, take a look here.

New victory conditions

Looking at the map you will notice that there are more important cities marked with a star symbol (★). These are the strategically important cities that determine the winner of the war. To learn more about how this new feature works, take a look at this blog post.

Vehicle Wrench tool

For a long time a heavily damaged tank has just been a useless chunk of metal, most tankers would abandon them and try their luck on foot, but now you haev a choice! The repair wrench is available for Tankers, Infantry and Recon and can be used to repair damaged vehicles. This takes time and is best performed away from danger. If you want to know more about this terrific tool, read more here.

Official Twitch channel

We have started a Friday devstream on Twitch, where we will broadcast live from Reto-Moto HQ and show new features, answer player questions and maybe show off what we are working on for the coming builds. In case you missed our first episode, you can check out the recording on youtube here.

There is of course much more happening in the build, so continue reading for more details…

Rommel Feature: Multiple Capitals

In the upcoming build named Rommel we are introducing a new addition to the strategic layer of the game – Expanded Victory Conditions.


We are changing the condition for winning a war in Rommel. Before we only had one capital per faction, and you could win by capturing the enemy capital. But now we have expanded the campaign map to a much larger part of Europe and there are now 15 capitals (and other strategically important cities) in total.
