In the years following the invasion of Earth in 2018, the planet is overrun by alien machines. Humankind is on the verge of extinction. Banded together in huge convoys, they search the frozen tundra for food and supplies. Since the war, the roles have been reversed: now our species seems to be the Anomaly on a machine-controlled planet. Your convoy, Commander, is called Yukon.

Anomaly 2 is a real-time strategy game that takes the tower offense concept from Anomaly Warzone Earth to a new level. Maintaining the core concepts of the original – tactical planning and the on-field Commander to support troops in combat – Anomaly 2 introduces a number of important new features:
  • Morph your troops into war mechs to discover the new face of strategy: each unit has a different mech form with various abilities to help you overcome specific combat situations.
  • Engage in a multiplayer experience unique to Anomaly 2: tower defense vs. tower offense. Play as the towers and destroy the humans or lead the humans to annihilate the alien towers.
  • Fight across a post-apocalyptic world in a new single-player campaign that offers a more intense strategy experience than the acclaimed original.
  • Carve your own path to victory and create your ultimate battle squad. With more than a million tactical combinations to build your squad, your options in combat are nearly endless.
  • Dive into a beautifully rendered world, thanks to the team’s new and improved visual engine.
  • Experience alternative endings dependent upon your approach to enemy machines in the campaign.

It will be priced at $14.99.

The game does look AMAZING the graphics are quite beautiful, looking forward to this one!

I believe the KF textures issues are resolved now. Not sure about Dungeon Defenders - it's not been released on Steam yet and I tend to use that for all my gaming.

I'm running NVidia though - ditched my ATI card after two years of suffering...

Anomaly was quite a surprise for me. I picked it up in the sale, just because I could, and had no idea what to expect. I was very pleasantly surprised.

Can't wait for the sequel.

Killing Floor still has it's textures issue. It's been the same build for the past several months (v1046).

AMD users shouldn't see any texture issues, it's an Nvidia issue only. I'm using Nvidia now, when I was using a HD6850 there were no texture issues. First game where Nvidia has the problem, not AMD. 310.14 drivers.

I run the game at full settings, but I read somewhere that if you set the textures to low or medium then it works fine. Doesn't for me though.
