The PC real-time strategy title formerly known as Outfront II has picked up a publisher in the shape of Ubisoft - and a new name to boot.

Faces of War is a squad-based RTS set in Europe during WWII that puts you in charge of commanding American, English, Soviet and German troops. The game features real-life conflicts, such as the Normandy Invasion and the Battle of the Bulge, all rendered "in shocking detail".

We're promised super-advanced AI, too - soldiers will think about the best way to execute the orders you give them, rather than just ploughing straight in. Which means the game "Takes combat gaming to a new level by integrating a psychological element," apparently. It's being developed by Ukrainian studio Best Way, also responsible for the award-winning Soldiers: Heroes of World War II.

Ubisoft has already released some new screenshots for the game, which is due to hit the shelves in March.
