While searching through all the news that is coming out from the 2012 Game Developers Conference, I came across the debut trailer for a game by Paradox Interactive titled RED Frontier. From simply looking at the video, you kind of get the feeling that this is just another typical real time stragedy game, but digging a little deeper, you discover that the RTS gameplay is just one facet of the game.
RED Frontier also hopes to incorporate aspects of massive multi-player online games while simplifying the playability of the game by incorporating the ease of the first person shooter genre. That is pretty ambitious, and tricky. To incorporate three different genres seemlessly into one game would be a feat very few publishers have achieved. But the people at Zeal Game Studios, the developers behind RED Frontier, are confident they can do so before the game is released sometime in 2012.
If they can keep to their word, and can deliver the kind of action that is on display in the trailer, RED Frontier should be a game serious PC gamers should keep an eye out for.
