    Have you ever played 'Ground Control', the game made by Massive Entertainment from Sweden? I didn't but the interview with Massive's lead game designer Magnus Jansén over at Shacknews immediately made me drool over the upcoming sequel 'World in Conflict'. This real time strategy game won't take place in the science-fictional past-third-world-war setting as the former Ground Control games, instead the cold war in the 1980's is the battleground now.

    Massive adds a lot of really cool features to enhance the visual storytelling effects, for instance if you zoom in on a map really close to your troops you will suddenly pick up the radio transmissions between the units.
    The game itself is comprised of three parts, one taking place in the US, the second in the European region and the third place wasn't disclosed yet.
    As Jansén says the relationship to the publisher Vivendi is exceptionally good, the funding is there and even patience, it sounds like 'World in Conflict' could easily be one of the best games released in 2007 (this fall, for PC only). Just take a look at the screens and of course the rest of the interview and you will realize it yourself.

    I never played ground control, but this game looks awesome. The fact its familiar territory (like CoH and other RTS games)

    Game looks pretty cool, but graphics are just a tad cubic.

    Recommended specs: 8800GTX SLi

    Well...no, but I bet at least it ain't gonna like my X850XT a single bit, along with stock clocked p.o.s CPU.

    I'll stick to Company of Heroes for now..
