Tempest Rising looks like the RTS I've been waiting for

By - | Views: 17,929

THQ Nordic, 3D Realms and  Slipgate Ironworks recently revealed Tempest Rising an upcoming classic RTS and after watching the trailer I absolutely need this.

While it will no doubt only officially support Windows, it doesn't release until 2023 and the Proton compatibility layer is already at a point where a lot of new releases just work. It also claims to have full controller support, so could be a good Steam Deck RTS!

As someone who grew up playing Dune 2, Command & Conquer and Red Alert — Tempest Rising seems like it's ticking all the right boxes for me.

More about it:

Classic RTS action meets modern production and performance in Tempest Rising. Inspired by RTS greats of the 90s and 2000s, Tempest Rising is a classic, base-building real time strategy game set in a modern day alternative history war scenario. It features 3 unique factions, each with its own approach to combat and economy and offering a variety of strategies for players of all stripes, maps with neutral structures to contest and neutral populations to contend with, deep and rewarding gameplay that keeps a focus on strategy while rewarding skill, and built-in customization options that allow players to approach the game their way in both single player and multiplayer game modes.

Features:

  • Classic RTS base building with fast and fluid hard-hitting combat.
  • 3 asymmetrical playable factions, each featuring distinct economy and play styles.
  • Each faction offers a unique roster of units.
  • 2 epic single player campaigns with between-mission cutscenes.
  • Skirmish, custom games, and ranked multiplayer matchmaking with Elo rating.

You can follow it on Steam.

Quoting: Just_IrishThe last Classic RTS I enjoyed was C&C Kane's Wrath. Everything else to follow with that formula has fallen short. I hope that this turns out fantastic and not make the mistakes that a lot of developers have in the last decade. I'm always a big fan of Doom-like rip-and-tear music, so just this reveal trailer is getting me hyped. Graphics are looking pretty legit, too.

Same here! Still playing C&C3 KW with my buddies every now and then (works great on wine/proton btw).
I am pretty excited for this one!
Could it finally be the successor of C&C3 KW for our LAN evenings?!
Wait a second, we have a GDF uplink being established ?

"Strong as they may be, they are still flesh and bone"

Are we getting a RTS set into the retro boomer shooter (build engine) universe of IonFury ?

Obviously I may read way too much into this, but... The GDF font looks really like Ion Fury's it's made by the IP owners, I don't know.

I mean I'm absolutely up for it. But if it mean even more ham Ion Fury material, I'm all for it.

Yes, indeed. This is set in the Ion Fury/Bombshell universe. Confirmed on the 3D Realms Discord.

No co-op campaign and not even comp-stomp is mentioned... unless the SP campaign is as cool of an experience as Starcraft II was, I'm probably gonna pass. It looks super cool though.
