Stillfront Launches Open Beta Release of Strategy Game Conflict of Nations: Modern War(TM)

2016-12-14

Stillfront Launches Open Beta Release of Strategy Game Conflict of Nations: Modern War(TM) Stockholm, Sweden December 14, 2016 Stillfront today launched the open beta (www.conflictnations.com) of the strategy game "Conflict of Nations: Modern War". The game is developed by Stillfront's studios Dorado and Bytro Labs. Conflict of Nations: Modern War(TM) is built on Bytro's successful Supremacy Engine, which is also the basis for the successful games Supremacy1914 and Call of War. Conflict of Nations: Modern War is a military themed strategy game set in the late 20th and early 21st century - including highly modern 21st century battlefield technology. At the core of the game is an exciting real time combat system putting players in control of an existing nation of this world and its army, pitting them against other gamers in a struggle for world domination. Units are moved across the map in real time, often taking hours to fulfil their assigned mission goals, allowing for a very deep level of strategic planning and integrated tactical execution. To ensure economic efficiency and technological edge over one's opponents, each nation must be carefully managed and developed. Researching new units while building the required infrastructure is key to winning the game. After all, modern war is about logistics as much as combat tactics. Forming lasting alliances or short lived coalitions is an essential part of the modern military environment. Accordingly, Conflict of Nations: Modern War allows players to form cooperative teams in an all-out effort to conquer set objectives through the combined force of arms. Game URL: www.conflictnations.com Jörgen Larsson, CEO, Stillfront Group, comments "Conflict of Nations: Modern War is a title that has the characteristics we know appeal to a category of players we are well acquainted with and have many good experiences of. This title includes high level graphics and sound effects, besides the thrilling strategy elements. The game fits well into Stillfront's PLEX strategy, as it broadens our portfolio, has a gameplay that encourages long player interaction and is built on our proven Supremacy Engine," Jörgen Larsson, CEO, Stillfront Group comments. Nick Porsche, Managing Director and Head Producer, Dorado Games, comments "I am extremely proud of the teams at Dorado and Bytro that have done a fantastic job with Conflict of Nations. We are convinced that Conflict of Nations has many of the features that attract many players," Nick Porsche, Dorado Games, comments.
