In the next major update, named Vasilevsky, we have greatly improved the melee combat. We know that a lot of players like to carry a knife or shovel or maybe a wrench with which they can also fix both their own and teammates vehicles. But we felt the melee combat could be improved and so we did.
We have just given our melee mechanics another iteration, using Inverse Kinematics and more precise animations to aid the attacker.
It will now be easier to hit your enemy with knives, shovels and wrenches.
In the next update to the game, one of the new features we are introducing is Morale for Assault Teams. The next update is called “Vasilevsky” after the Soviet general Aleksandr Vasilevsky
All assault teams now have a morale value that shows how combat-ready they are. Here is one of my “Mototized Guard” units happily moving towards Warsaw. This is how it looks on the campaign map.
In the next update to the game named Utz (after General Willibald Utz) we are introducing a new Assault Map codenamed “Forward Airfield”.
This new map represents one of the forward airfields that were built all over Europe before and during the war. Here we have a small village situated on a hill overlooking a river where a piece of nearby farmland has been laid out as an impromptu airstrip. The map is an assault map with 3 main objectives: The Airfield, The village Church and the bridge controlling access to the village. Click the objective names to see more details on each area!
