Indie game developer Nival have announced a new update for their strategy game Blitzkrieg 3, which will give us precisely what we’ve been asking them for, a PvP mode.
The multiplayer in Blitzkried 3 uses a simulated front line in which an offline player is selected to represent the opponent. Fans have suggested to Nival that they include a PvP mode, and Nival have done precisely that.
“We were looking for some really fresh ideas for the continuation of the Blitzkrieg 3 series, and the “attack-defense” tactical scheme as the basis for online battles seemed to be an interesting solution”, – commented Sergey Orlovskiy, founder and CEO of Nival. Orlovskiy continued, “While in a real war sides are never put in symmetrical conditions, the PvP modes in games invariably present abstract duels in which opponents fight in equal environment. The only wide-known exception to this so far has been CounterStrike and we thought that implementing this tactical scheme as the basis for online battles not in a shooter but in a strategy genre might be that fresh idea that will breath new life in to the RTS genre”.
