ISOTX has announced that the third themed episode of their free-to-play episodic online multiplayer strategy game, March of War, is now available through Steam Early Access and the official website for PC and Mac. Episode III: African Sunrise introduces new units including the Nuclear Suicide Truck and the Kenyan Rhino Rider which was chosen by the players, through the Vote4War system.
Episode III: African Sunrise also offers a variety of community-driven unit skins for the first time, as well as hazards in the form of critters, including elephants, gorillas and gigantic overlords, which will help keep players moving within the African savannas on their toes.
“The story of Episode III: African Sunrise revolves around the mission to give Africa a affordable and improved energy source,” says Vincent van Geel, Creative Director at ISOTX. “We introduce two new characters, Scientist Niari Okoro’s and Zulu King Shaka II. Okoro’s mission to give Africa a new energy-source goes awry when Shaka II hard-handedly forces her to develop nuclear weapons to benefit his quest for world domination. In a desperate act to keep that from happening, Okoro leaks vital information to the international press, accidentally putting Africa in the crosshairs of the rest of the world.”
Next month will see the release of March of War – Episode IV: Exalted Inferno which will be available on 7th November 2013. Future episodes will contain all previously released episodic content, on all expected devices and will always be entirely free-to-play. The official trailer for Episode III: African Sunrise follows below and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on March of War.
