The Great War: Western Front is just one of many military reenactment games, especially regarding the World Wars. However, it does boast a battlefield where changes are permanent.
This doesn’t just create lasting consequences for your decisions, but also more realism, which is often the goal of these types of RTS games. The devs held a new hour-long livestream today which reinforced how seriously they aimed to take warfare themes while keeping the gameplay entertaining. You can review the full livestream on the game’s official YouTube channel:
The Great War: Western Front was first revealed back in August 2022, and each new announcement has continued to prove that it has enormous density and potential. Players will have more responsibilities than usual, with dual roles.
The opportunity to control both large-scale decisions and smaller ground battles will definitely make the campaign feel more expansive and engaging. You’ll get to see how each role affects the other. Most RTS games focus on one or the other, and sometimes the larger scale titles can feel too disconnected.
However, this means it’ll be crucial for The Great War: Western Front to nail the balance between the two. One cannot have more attention or consequence than the other, because they are equally important in war.
