The Path of War leads directly to iOS
If you like your mobile strategy games to be massively multiplayer, and if you like your depictions of the near-future U.S. to be bleak, then Nexon and Envision Entertainment have the game for you. They’ve just announced that Path of War is now available for iPhone and iPad, blending action, strategy and MMO to create intense tactical battles.
The premise lays out like the fevered fantasies of the Oregon wildlife refuge occupiers:
Set in a bleak near-future United States, infrastructure has failed and rebel militias must now battle a corrupt military regime to wrestle back control of the nation’s capital, stabilizing and rebuilding what remains of the country. Players will design, construct, and expand every detail of their high-tech base which they will move across the U.S. on their eastward journey to Washington, D.C., launching intense assaults against other players along the way.
The action takes place via persistent massively multiplayer gameplay on a a 1:1 scale map of the United States. Each participating squadron will begin at the Pacific Ocean and race across the United States, battling for control of the nation.
Territory expansion across the 1:1 map of the U.S. is the key to success in Path of War. Players will attack enemy encampments to grow their dominion by collecting base upgrades, valuable loot and defense bonuses. Working with allies can enhance players’ ability to control vital territory, as larger alliances open the door to faster strategic takeovers. As friends and foes influence each other, alliances can be forged freely between players on the persistent world map which features real-world geographical locations. Wielding a massive array of weapons, infantry, and armored vehicles, each player will carve out their own path of war.
Just do me a favor and keep the path out of my woods, okay? We still like to use that for the go-kart.
