World War II gets Frontline AI

Bitmap Brothers talk up morale for new real-time strategy game

Source - press release

Proving that anything can sound exciting if you give it a catchy new name, the Bitmap Brothers are talking up the importance of morale in their forthcoming real-time strategy game code-named World War II. Enter a system called Frontline, which allows units to show signs of "everything from heroism to confidence, despair and cowardice" in the heat of battle, depending on their state of mind. As in any good wargame, their morale will alter their combat effectiveness or even prompt them to turn tail and run or perform a heroic deed. Exactly how this will work in a real-time setting remains to be seen, and we'll have to wait a little longer to find out - the game's release has been pushed back from summer to autumn. In the meantime, feast your eyes on the first screenshots of the game in action. Related Feature - World War II screenshots
