Rodents roar across the plains. Ferrets launch mortars into farms. In the distance, cobras slither closer, ready to tear down a freshly-built bunker. Tooth and Tail is a real-time strategy game that puts you in the commander’s chair of a gunpowder-era Redwall war while trying to avoid pitfalls that keep newcomers from…
Our list of the best strategy games on the PC contains only three RTS titles. And none of them are from the past decade. There’s a very good reason for this: the genre was perfected by Company of Heroes all the way back in 2006.
Tooth and Tail, an RTS by the folks who made Monaco, is coming to computers and PS4 September 12. Here’s a new trailer.
Retro RTS fans, take note: the African Kingdoms expansion for Age of Empires II HD hits at the end of the week. Here’s what that’ll entail.
Heroes of the Storm is a really fun game. But playing it as a Warcraft veteran can hit a little too close to home.
From Namco Bandai's official announcement, "Set in the distant, space-faring future Supernova takes an innovative approach to the multiplayer online battle arena genre by adding real-time strategy elements." That's kind of like innovating a peanut butter sandwich by adding jelly.
Blizzard gave Warcraft fans one hell of a nostalgia trip earlier this month when it debuted the cinematic trailer for Warlords of Draenor. But much like the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion that Blizzard was teasing, the video only took gamers so far down memory lane:
Esports and StarCraft II in particular had a pretty cool and eventful year. Here's a clip, edited by YouTuber Soohyung Kim, with all the memorable matches and moments from this year's streams from MLG, the World Championship Series and other tournaments.
Universum: War Front is an incredibly ambitious game. It's a combination of real-time strategy, MOBA, role-playing game and third-person shooter, set in a wholly original universe. Impressive, moreso when you realize everything you see and hear in the video is the work of one guy.
What happens when you take a real time strategy game and an RPG, and wrap it all up in the package of a casual match three game? A huge stinking mess without a clear direction—at least that's what I imagined when I was told about Cavemania. After taking my time with the game, I have to say, I'm impressed.
New York City-based independent developers Heartonomy are bringing a unique sort of multiplayer strategy game to iOS this summer, and for some odd reason they named it StarLicker, which really negates the need for any explanation of gameplay.
Like all Blizzard games, the recently-released StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm is swarming with easter aggs and pop culture references. Here are some of the best ones we've found so far.
After crafting a whole season of short, funny StarCraft cartoons, CarBotAnimations presents a spectacular special episode, remaking the entire cinematic intro of Heart of the Swarm. It still doesn't explain why that Viking had to land to get stomped on by the Ultralisk, but these Zerg units, portrayed as cute little…
In the StarCraft community, making parody music videos has always been a big thing—just look at Husky's Nerd Alert or Temp0. Or New Zealand-based Viva La Dirt League — the closest thing to a StarCraft boy band we'll ever get (though, let's admit, they should be in a higher league) — whose latest video is a really…
StarCraft II's expansion pack, Heart of the Swarm, is already out in some parts of the world, and it's launching tomorrow in North America. To celebrate, let's take the opportunity to examine more than 20 years' worth of real-time strategy history in today's Show Us gallery, and see how much the genre has evolved…
Founded in 2003 by the last remaining members of Westwood Studios—fathers of the modern-day real-time strategy game (see Dune II)—Petroglyph Games has spent the past decade continuing to build on that proud RTS tradition. Now the developer has taken an unexpected turn towards mobile social games, to Coin a Phrase.
Battle.net had hinted at plans for a name-changing service—for a fee—in StarCraft II some time ago but it never materialized. With the paid name-change option deprioritized and unlikely to happen anytime soon, Battle.net is saying sorry by giving everyone a free name-change.
Cortex Command began life as the project of a Swedish high school student. That high schooler has now turned 30, gotten married, moved to the United States and become a citizen. And, at long last, he's launched his game.
