UTRECHT, THE NETHERLANDS – June 28, 2013 – Look alive soldier! Time to head to the frontline and fight for your country. ISOTX, developer and publisher of the award-winning Iron Grip-series today announces that the Pilot episode of the free-to-play episodic online multiplayer strategy game March of War is available now through Steam Early Access and the official website for PC and Mac.
The Pilot episode "World Aflame" sets the stage for the community to start writing their story in the war-torn alternate dieselpunk 1940's world. Initially, the conflict is in its early stages, but it will quickly mature into a rapidly evolving and unpredictable conflict once players have had a chance to start interacting with the dieselpunk game world. Each battle redraws the borders, shifting the balance and changing the world. These elements keep March of War in a constant player driven flux.
With their adoption of a monthly free episodic release model, ISOTX has committed itself to releasing new episodes full of content each month, all of which will be heavily influenced and directed by the community. Players are invited to submit ideas, vote for content and interact with the ISOTX team via the VOTE4WAR page on the official website.
"The Pilot episode is the starting point for the March of War series," says Vincent van Geel, Creative Director at ISOTX. "It is a prologue setting up the story, on top of which we will layer new episodes each month driven by the actions and feedback of our community."
The perfect distribution platform has been found in Steam, with Early Access emphasizing the company's vision of the Pilot episode, which is all about player involvement and feedback.
March of War's first themed episode "Soviet Storm" will be available in the Steam store and other portals on August 1^st 2013, followed by a new episode on every first Thursday of the month. All future episodes will contain all of the previous episodic content and will be totally free.
Mobile versions of March of War for iOS and Android are to follow this summer, elevating the cross-platform experience to a whole new level.
