Men of War: Red Tide available via Steam


Earlier this year we reported that 1C Company's recent WWII RTS game Men of War would be getting a quick stand alone follow up game called Men of War: Red Tide. Late on Friday the game, developed by Best Way, was quietly added to Steam's line-up of games to purchase and download.

As we reported earlier this year when the game was first announced, Men of War: Red Tide has players commanding the he Soviet Marines, also known as the "Black Coats", as they fight battles during the Black Sea Campaigns of WWII. There are 23 missions and over 100 different units to control in the game. The game is priced at $24.99 and a bundle deal combining the new game with the original Men of War can be bought on Steam for just $34.99. That's a $20 savings if each game were bought separately
