Gratuitous Tank Battles Coming This Christmas
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Positech Games, developer of Democracy, Kudos and Gratuitous Space Battles, has announced work on Gratuitous Tank Battles. The upcoming new game is described as a hybrid of real time strategy and tower defense featuring online elements, customizable units, and a built-in map editor for custom creations.

Gratuitous Tank Battles is an RTS/Tower Defense hybrid with online elements and customisable units. The player can take the role of the defender or the attacker in a series of top-down explodey fun. A built-in map editor will allow easy sharing of custom maps and defensive challenges with other GTB players in a similar fashion to GSB's challenge system.

GTB takes place in an alternate reality where the 'central powers' never surrender and the 'great war' continues for two hundred years. Soldiers still fight in the trenches of the Somme, although rifles have (mostly) become laser rifles and giant armored mechs stride across no-mans land. The two great armies continue to fight with patriotic zeal and little memory of who Franz Ferdinand was and what happened to him. One thing is certain: It will all be over by Christmas 2114.
Gratuitous Tank Battles is currently under development for Mac and Windows PCs and is planned for a release sometime before Christmass 2011.
