How different is it from DEFCON?

Post by JackoBongo » Thu Jun 18, 2020 3:12 pm

Introversion Software released DEFCON in 2006.
Based on the trailer ICBM seems to have a similar gameplay (similar region, scoring, type of weapons), the only difference being the research/construction aspect.

Any dev to answer?

Think DEFCON 2.0.

The gameplay is different enough, as it is asymmetrical - you chose your what to research and what to build basing on your knowledge of the opponents.

For example, knowing your opponent researches MIRVs, you can invest into stealth aircrafts and laser satellite weapon to destroy his silos preemptively and intercept the remaining ICBMs while they travel in space.
And there are a lot of different strategies you can choose depending on who you play with and what is your faction.

Plus all the bells and whistles like globe (true trajectories), different payloads, satellites, Strike Planner, etc.
