There is something to be said about games who use episodic content to weave intricate stories amid compelling gameplay. March of War which has just been brought forth on Steam Early Access, happens to be developer ISOTX's vision of what episodic content could look like in a turn-based multi-platform strategy game set during a 1904s dieselpunk universe. The result? Armored grenadiers, huge tanks, zeppelins, mech Striders, and battle Elephants that look really pissed off.

While still months away from final release, ISOTX hopes the Early Access release of the game's pilot episode acts as a starting point for the developers to keep the community involved in the growth and evolution of March of War.

Currently the game offers players the choice of six factions to side with, each loosely based on national powers present during the 1940's. All factions have access to their own unique sets of units and as new episodes of free content are added each month, players will be able to continually expand their factions control over the land. I hoped in the game for a few minutes this morning and found it to be very buggy, but with hints of tactical depth that could be worth a look if all the kinks are straightened out before the official release.

Since the game is multi-platform, players can seamlessly switch between their PC and a tablet while continuing where they left off. If you're interested in trying the game for yourself, you can head on over to March of War's Steam page here.

Gave up on this game 2 weeks ago. It WAS near unplayable, 30 second freezes every turn or so, chat lag, consistent crashes, broken buttons, inaccurate command sensibility, p2w (yes you can buy every unit with ingame currency BUT a level one can have everything he ever want with money and come out on top of someone who maybe played for months. Looks like pre alpha to me
