New Stormrise Trailer - Line of Sight & Achievement Preview

SEGA and Creative Assembly's Stormrise isn't too far away and whilst no official release date has been announced, the fact that the trophy list exists and retailers are all hinting at an April release, it could be closer than you think.

The latest video for the RTS title which is looking to revolutionize RTS games on consoles  (wait ... again?) focuses on the very up close and personal camera perspective that has been missing from most, if not all RTS titles. Even Halo Wars, another title that wants to revolutionize the genre, lacked this great feature.

If you have any interest in this title, be sure to check out the trophy list our sister site published only yesterday.

Bah, no matter what you do to "revolutionize" RTS games there still all gonna be very similar and just as boring. This is obviously MY opinion and nothing more. I just can't find the fun in ordering tiny units around a big map and having no real control over the actual action.

A good idea that Sega will find a way to screw up.

OXM didn't review it badly, so I think a demo would be in order to clear things up with the people who will ultimately buy this. Endwar sucked. Period.

#4, try out Company of Heroes on PC. Doesn't get more exciting than that. What's great is that you DO have control over the actual fighting. You decide the cover your men use and their firing mechanics (suppressing fire, volley fire, slower but with more accuracy etc) and you can upgrade the weapons each unit uses etc.. It's more like a squad based game because the fighting is actually up in the air. It's not like "oh he has four units and I have three, I lose." If you think, you can win easily. Not to mention, it is one of the only games where tanks have the fear factor that they do in real life. It's not like command and conquer or halo wars, where if you shoot a tank with enough machine gun bullets, it will die. No, it will be perfectly fine and your squad will be in little bloody piece

This looks like it's gonna be a good game, and I played the Halo Wars demo. Those two could be the start of a steady flow of good RTS's.

It's also coming to "Games for Windows - LIVE", so I'd rather have it on PC with Achievements than on a console.

Looks alright, hopefully they'll release a demo. Then again, I thought EndWar looked good and that was pants.

Good thing this is coming out on GFW live, I would have never played it if it was only on 360.

Anyways it should be good, made by the same people who made Total War, which was great.

I think I saw a Corpser xD

Anyway looks decent, Creative Assembly are okay. They haven't done much since Viking last year so hopefully they've made a good game.

This could be awesome if done right. Let's hope they focus on the gameplay more than the graphics.

Man, that's the second time that PS3trophies has gotten a trophy list before we get an achievement list. Why does Sony do better than Microsoft in that sense? I still really wanna see a Resident Evil 5 achievement list. But anyways yeah the games does look like it could be really good.

the problem with rts on consoles is... it was a genre made for pc. No matter what they say about it being a change and revolutionising console rts's, they'll still suck. You can't emmerse yourself properly with a controller.
