Gratuitous Tank Battles Video Blog Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Positech Games has released a new video blog for the upcoming Gratuitous Tank Battles, explaining what the armored combat game is about. The upcoming new title 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 coming to the PC and Mac, developed by Positech Games, makers of Democracy, Kudos and of course Gratuitous Space Battles. 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 battles. 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.

FEATURES:

  • Play as attacker or defender on any map.
  • Design your own unique units from a huge range of components.
  • Use Turrets, Tanks, Mechs, Infantry and special command units.
  • Integrated map editor to allow trivial sharing of custom maps.
  • Upload your maps and armies as online challenges for other players
  • It will all be over by Christmas.
