There’s also an opportunity to try out Men of War’s “direct control” feature during the demo. This enables you to maneuver units using the directional keys, rather than pointing and clicking. Players can get behind the controls of a tank to smash through obstacles, crush soldiers under its tracks and fire armor-piercing shells at enemy emplacements.
Men of War takes place across the globe during the height of World War II and features four different armies - Red Army, Allies and Germans - each with their own unique units, vehicles and missions. From the Russian missions starring two student comrades innocent to the horrors of war, players are soon catapulted into massive battles with dozens of units under their command.
