    Searched for an existing thread but couldnt find one.

    Its been confirmed by PC gamer UK. Focuses on the German-Soviet conflict. Scans are out and about.

    PC only ATM.

    Let's hope THQ stays in business long enough to publish it.

    I am not sure what EGs policy on magazine scans/pics is so I will just leave the link for the thread on Reddit where I read about this. I am not responsible for what people post there.

    What? no Americans or Brits? How can you have a war with no good guys?

    Yeah that great news. Still the definitive RTS in my humble opinion.

    I'm disappointed that there's no Homeworld 3, but this will suffice.

    CoH was much better than DoW2, although I expect this might be even less base-buildy than DoW2. Not that I mind, but I know for some people base building is a make or break.

    Very good news, loved the first one. Also good that they are concentrating on the other front of the war.

    Excellent news.

    Although, like Zaiz, a HW3 announcement would have made me even happier.

    Anyone tried the free beta yet? I found it disappointing. Same graphics, and the gameplay feels slower than the original.

    haven't played the beta yet no, although i played a bit of COH 1 recently and the graphics were still awesome IMO.

    little tanks and men! quality stuff.

    Is the beta online only or can you play against the AI?

    Just downloaded the beta but one thing killed my enthusiasm before even starting the game:

    The CoD style unlocks give you bonus damage and reduced training time for units. Online RTS games have a steep enough learning curve without making more experienced player's units flat out better than new players' ones. A well made RTS has enough depth in just learning the units, strategies and so on. There's no need to add an MMO treadmill.

    Having said that if these unlocks are only effective in single player or if its trivially easy to unlock everything, then this point is moot. Fingers crossed that's the case.

    I quite like the progression in these games, its always kind of existed, ever since the days of Dune 2 where you progress through missions, slowly adding more powerful units before the last two missions where you get DEVASTATOR TANKS!

    hmmm..... i want to play Dune 2 now.

    It should not be in MP though.

    Dune 2 was unfair. Atreides got Fremen. Harkonnen got a nuke.

    @jakuande Well surely the matchmaking system will only pit you against people around the same rank as you, you will have different +this and +that but it should be zero balanced but suit your playing style?

    If they manage to put together a matchmaking system which can do that, as well as taking into account the skill of the players, then you're right it wouldn't be too much of a problem. But, if they can do that (and I find it unlikely), why bother with the extra damage unlocks at all, since the matchmaking system would negate their effect? Better to just have prestige skins, portraits etc.

    We'll just have to wait and see how it plays out huh...seems everyone's complaining more about performance than anything.

    Fools, they have not yet learned the ways of the beta.
