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.

  1. I would be interested, actually I would be SUPER interested, if this wasn’t a turn based game but it is so I’m not.

  2. Great game and yeah needs some balancing but definitely not Pay to Win. I haven’t had to buy anything yet… Cheers

    • It’s is nowhere near Air Mech (Well it actually is). It’s a Online Strategy game w/ and w/o bots and it’s turned based with 6 factions to choose from. In Air Mech all you can do is fly around with a robot, spawn units and kill your enemies, in March of War you can spawn units, fight to take land from other countries (or to protect the land you already have) and it’s cross platform game which means you can play against someone who’s playing on a iOS device or Android.

      Air Mech is more of “Fight just to fight” and March of War is more of “Fight to survive and take down your foes to their knees”.

      So as you can see. They have their diffirences.

      Sorry if I used bad grammar. English is my second language

  3. Looks so fun! I mean its no Civilization 4 or 5 but looks good enough to take my attention away from Civ 5 for awhile

  4. 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

    • It got better over those two weeks. Not by a whole lot, but better. Besides it’s called “early access” for a reason. I think there is still hope for this game.
