Order of Battle: Sandstorm will hit the shelves on May 16th

Post by AlbertoC » Wed May 02, 2018 1:58 pm

We have the release date all Order of Battle fans were waiting for: Sandstorm is going to be released on May 16th!

In Order of Battle: Sandstorm you're going to lead a whole new range of units in a series of new exciting scenarios. Will you manage to earn the title of Desert Fox?

We have something else to show you until then - including something that is new to the Order of Battle expansions, so stay tuned!

Until then, you can kill the time by joining us on the forum to discuss the upcoming DLC.

This may sound silly, but... The requirements show "OS: XP/ Vista/ 8 /10", i.e Windows 7 is conspicuously absent between Vista and 8. Will it work with a Windows 7 OS?

Hi, I'm pretty sure that's a typo and it should work on Windows 7. I'll check.

Yes that was definitely an oversight, it works on Windows 7 too

Among the fixes and general excitement around Sandstorm, can I ask, have you made the game harder? I'm a little out of practice admittedly, having had a month away, but I have been picking up on some of the other campaigns to finish them off and get some momentum into Sandstorm and I'm getting thrashed!

Many of the scenarios I'm getting my butt handed to me in are ones I have completed several times before at the same level 3 (10 v 10) and I'm not even getting close to a victory that would enable me to have resources to take on the next battle. I've even gone back a battle or two to play it a bit more cagey and preserve resources and I'm getting toasted there too.

Anyone else sensed a general but significant increase in the challenge for existing scenarios at your normal play levels?

That was supposed to be, we opted (most of testers) for increasing the level of difficulty during Beta-tests.
