This is the Sequel to Act of War: Direct Action and does not require the original game to play.Instead of introducing a fourth faction, Eugen Systems have introduced a different kind of feature which promises to mix things up considerably during different phases of the game – mercenary units. The concept is simple: these are units for hire. Only one player at a time can hire each mercenary unit, and to hire a mercenary team you need to pay a hefty insurance policy. If the mercenaries are injured or even killed, you won't get a full refund of your insurance deposit at the end of the contract.
Act of War: High Treason is the thrilling continuation of 2005’s best new military RTS, Act of War: Direct Action. With its fast-paced, action-packed and well-balanced gameplay, extensive tech tree and amazing visuals, this ultra-realistic modern military RTS was an instant smash hit with reviewers and gamers alike!
With naval combat, tons more multiplayer options, expanded tech trees and a massive new single-player campaign, High Treason contains hundreds of hours of intense RTS gameplay!
Control the ultimate in cutting-edge military technology and units in this first look at tomorrow’s war!
The nine mercenary units range from close assault troops with Benelli shotguns, to Roland SAM systems, SU-25 Froogfoot CAS aircraft, and even F-117 stealth bombers that can be called into any part of the map.
For extra variation in the basic game each of the three factions also receives 2-3 new units and as many new upgrades; in some cases they will cover previous holes in the tech tree, in others just reinforce the strength of each side or introduce a new use for existing units and upgrades. Examples are Stinger infantry and Kiowa recon helicopters for the U.S. Army, SCUD launchers and Hind AT-6 Spiral missiles for the Consortium, and GUOS mine upgrades and experimental BLU-144 bombs for the Joint Strike Fighters of the Task Force Talon.
