Machines At War 3 Rolls Out
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Isotope 244 has announced the release of Machines at War 3, the sequel to Land Air Sea Warfare. The real time strategy title features a single player campaign centering on uncovering what happened to a missing reasearch team, as well as multiplayer action and random map modes. Machines at War 3 offers 21 campaign missions, 130 different type of units for waging war, and the chance to engage in massive 5,000 unit battles.

Fire in the Hole

You investigate a secluded military lab and find something horribly wrong! All of the scientists are missing and the facility is ransacked. Years of research and top secret classified experiments are no where to be found.

The missing scientists, known as the Omicron Initiative, are responsible for developing new technologies. The only clue to their disappearance is a mysterious text message reading "we were forced to do it". The team's disappearance threatens the secrecy of it's research, which could potentially put your country into a chaotic panic. Now there's only one person who can rescue the Omicron Initiative and protect its secret technology from falling into the wrong hands.

In 21 missions you'll race across the world to find out who, or what, is responsible for the team's disappearance. You'll command over 130 different types of units ranging from infantry and ships to giant mega units.

After honing your skills in the campaign, fire up a random map and experience insane 5,000 unit battles! Test your meddle in online multiplayer or play offline against AI opponents. Many adjustable options ensure every game is unique. Want to play with only ground units? Make the victory condition the death of a specific unit? The options are limitless!

It's time to arm up and get in the war!

Combat Continues

Once you've solved the mystery of the Omicron Initiative the combat keeps coming. Machines at War 3 includes both online multiplayer and single player skirmishes. In these matches almost every aspect is tweakable. For example you can change not only the victory conditions but which units are available over the course of the match. You can wage war against three of your friends to see who will reign supreme or battle the game's AI.

With an unprecedented 130 types of units in your arsenal Machines at War 3 truly delivers. To easily find each type they are split into engineering, buildings, and defense categories. Units are further divided by tiers, meaning the longer a battle rages, the stronger your army grows; what starts off as basic infantry quickly escalates into huge mega units destroying anything that dares step in their crosshairs.

130 Supreme Units

Basic units make up the first tier, though they're still fully capable of attacking, defending and building. As they start slaughtering foes the second tier unlocks with new upgrades to research. Imagine having the power of knowing what units your opponent is building and giving you the chance to build powerful defenses to swat them away like flies. Unlocking the third tier grants you all units in the game, including ICBMs, satellite systems, and mega units. But beware, you'll need control of a special resource node to build those monstrous mega units. If control is lost, production stops, adding yet another element of strategy to Machines at War 3.

An in-depth tutorial helps the game remain accessible no matter your skill level as it walks new players through the basics in boot camp. Once you've graduated you'll have no problem schooling some veterans on the battlefield.
