"At the end of last year we were pleased and then surprised to find that Digitalmindsoft were making a “spiritual successor” to the Men of War games set in the modern world." - Read the interview @ Rock, Paper, Shotgun
Men of War: Assault Squad 2 - Closed Beta
The Men of War: Assault Squad 2 Closed Beta is about to start, make sure to back before it launches if you want to take part!
Back Call To Arms now and you will receive an invitation once the beta starts!
Invitations will be sent out once the beta starts (November - December), all backers who have pledged before the launch of the beta can join the party.
Welcome to the Call to Arms crowd funding page, a real-time strategy game developed by Digitalmindsoft and the true successor of the Men of War series. Like you, we fought countless battles across Europe, but time stops for no man and change is coming. The era of modern warfare has begun!
Call to Arms offers an innovative new look into modern era combat. Initially offering two playable factions, 20 realistically modeled vehicles and heavy weaponry, as well as over 60 firearms and customization, our new game offers the very best in tactical gameplay.
Similar to Men of War: Assault Squad, Call to Arms also includes our innovative "direct control" feature, a 3rd person action mode used to operate your unit's aim and movement. Whether advancing with a Humvee, infiltrating with a Scout Sniper or crashing through buildings with a M1A2 Abrams, everything can be controlled by you!
Aside from the modern theme, what will change compared to the classic Men of War? We believe it's time to massively improve the series and the engine it’s running on. This is where we require your help! We have raised enough funds to begin the project, but with your assistance, we aim to create the best strategy experience yet. Every cent offered will go back into development to create higher resolution graphics, engine optimizations and greater content! So what are you waiting for? Check out the reward list and let’s work together to create the greatest gaming you’ve seen!
With combined forces the community has achieved a total of 30 honor points so far. (We just got started!)
The following heroic service rewards will be made exclusively available to all backers. Each reward will be unlocked as the following total amount of honor points are reached.
- 5 honor points - in-game highlighting of your player avatar
- 15 honor points - in-game achievement
- 30 honor points - in-game XP boost
- 50 honor points - in-game user interface style
- 75 honor points - 3 days early access to the full-game on release
... more rewards will be revealed soon!
What are honor points?*
Honor points are collected by everyone who has backed Call to Arms. The community will face different challenges, and for each completed challenge every backer will be rewarded with honor points. These points are then added up and progressively unlock the heroic service rewards you see above!
This is a way for us to give back to the people who support us in making Call to Arms the best game possible. Everyone who has backed Call to Arms will receive these rewards, no matter which pledge version you purchased.
If I start backing now, will I receive any honor points already collected?
Yes, you will get all honor points.
Why are you not on Kickstarter?
We plan to migrate to Kickstarter at some stage of development, but for now our own website offers us the greatest flexibility. Current users of Digitalmindsoft don’t even need to register!
Will Stretch Goals delay the development?
Absolutely not, we’ll keep our planned release date and if necessary release Stretch Goals later. If you financially contributed to the project, you’ll receive all Stretch Goal content for free.
Does that mean that you will stop supporting Men of War?
Of course not, we still adore the battlefields of WWII, so we will continue to support Assault Squad 2 with content and balance patches. Stay tuned for further announcements!
Do you have a publisher for Call to Arms?
Digitalmindsoft have teamed up with Lace Mamba Global as their worldwide publisher of Call to Arms. Lace Mamba successfully launched boxed versions of Men of War: Assault Squad, Vietnam and Condemned Heroes into English speaking countries worldwide and so we saw them as the perfect partner for our new game.
The very first goal is to reach enough financial commitment to deliver an exciting, well-polished game. It might sound pretty high, but in terms of game development it’s very low. We have already matched this amount to begin the project, so we only ask for what we really need to complete the project. We stand together in creating a fantastic experience!
