Below is a quick summary of all significant announcements from Slitherine’s 2021 Home of Wargamers Live+ Winter Edition.
The publisher unveiled three games during the Home of Wargamers 2021 Winter Edition event. This was a further expansion of its strategy titles.
Terminator: Dark Fate – Defiance
Terminator Dark Fate: Defiance is a real-time strategy game in the movie’s rebooted universe. It adds another IP to Slitherine’s portfolio. The campaign is focused on humanity’s survival, while multiplayer allows you to take control of the machines.
Headquarters World War II
A turn-based wargame that allows players to experience the Battle of Normandy both from the Axis and Allies sides. Three campaigns follow the US, UK, and German troops. The gameplay is simple to learn but difficult to master.
Modern Naval Warfare
Modern Naval Warfare is the new generation of nuclear submarine simulations. It puts players in command of a USS Virginia class submarine. You will track your enemies and avoid mines. However, you can also use cruise missile strikes and torpedoes when stealth is impossible. Modern Naval Warfare will launch on PC in 2022. It will also include VR support.
Coming Game Announcements
We also got our first glimpse at Stargate gameplay by the Timekeepers at Home of Wargamers 2021 Winter Edition. A small team of specialists is controlled by the players. They use stealth and distraction in order to defeat an enemy force that is outnumbering them.
Broken Arrow’s mix of joint forces wargames and real-time tactical elements will be available on PC in 2022. Its first gameplay video shows 11 minutes of combat between the US and Russian forces, highlighting armor, artillery and helicopters working together.
Starship Troopers – Terran Command
Starship Troopers- Terran Command is moving steadily towards launch. It is scheduled for Q1 2022. Developer The Artistocrats has been implementing feedback from fans following the Steam Festival’s success. Kejero, the composer, also shared his thoughts on creating the game’s music.
