Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II
With Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II, Relic Entertainment has removed two things that deter annoy most people from trying out strategy games – Base building and Resource Gathering. That’s why many gamers who have been wishing to try their hands at RTS games began playing this game. But this doesn’t mean that this game is too easy to play. In this game, even new gamers will have some difficulties. Unlike most strategy games, Dawn of War II doesn’t give you control of swarms of disposable units. Instead, you only have four squads to control. Each of them forms an integral part of your army. This is vital because you will keep track of all your units and ensure that you keep them up and alive. Moreover, you will see their strengths and weaknesses. Thus, you will understand your chance at success. Apart from this, there’s an RPG-like leveling up system and skill tree in place. So you have to make the right choices while upgrading your units. Otherwise, they’ll end up sub-par and too weak to perform their role effectively.
This game is about three opposing forces of humanity – the Cybran Nation, the Aeon Illuminate and the United Earth Federation. For a millennium, they have fought a bitter and bloody war over conflicting and unwavering systems of belief. So no one can reconcile them. Not accidentally, it’s called the Infinite War because this horrific conflict has shattered a once peaceful galaxy. But now, the battle for supremacy has at long last reached a turning point. As you understand, the player (You) is a Supreme Commander. Thus, only you have the power to bring the Infinite War to an end once and for all. Events take place in the 37th century. Supreme Commander signals the next evolution in the RTS genre by being the first strategy game to deliver a truly strategic and tactical experience.
Age Of Mythology
This is a mythology-based, real-time strategy computer game developed by Ensemble Studios. By the way, it was published by Microsoft Game Studios. As the name implies, this game focuses on the myths and legends of the Greek, Egyptian, and Norse cultures. Its campaign follows an Atlantean admiral, Arkantos, who is forced to travel through the lands of the three civilizations in the game, hunting for a cyclops who seeks to release the titan Kronos.
Only four months after the release of the first version, Age of Mythology sold over 1,000,000 copies. In this regard, general manager for PC games at Microsoft, Stuart Moulder, said that ‘The worldwide popularity of the entire franchise continues to grow, while the fans’ excitement inspires the development team at Ensemble Studios to create more innovative games each year.’
Of course, Age of Mythology is a war game. We mean in addition to civilian units, players can train a variety of military units. The three main groups are human units, which are more or less historically accurate, divinely inspired heroes and monstrous myth units such as the Sphinx and Cyclops.
Each of these units takes up a set number of population slots; civilians take one, while some myth units can take up to five. Players start with a limited number of population slots and can then build houses and town centers to acquire more. Most units can be upgraded, making them better at certain tasks.
World of Warships
Geography is important not only on the land but also for a long voyage. It is also the entire point of World of Warships. As the name suggests, it’s an online game about blowing other ships up. You, as an admiral, take control of a vessel and aim to stay alive. It seems that we are dealing with a simple game. But it’s not so. There are several class suits you can choose to play the game with.
First, it’s Cruisers. This is the first of the World of Warships ships that you’ll get your hands on. They are the most varied class and while they can play many roles. Second, it’s Destroyers. World of Warships destroyers are unlocked at tier 2 and are the fastest of the ships. Third, it’s Battleships. These are heavy monstrous machines. They are slow, meandering behemoths that take forever to aim, move, and reload. Finally, it’s Aircraft Carriers. If you like to be a little bit different then this is the group of World of Warships ships for you. They don’t take part in the battle in the same way as the other classes, instead, they send out their planes to fight for them. They attack from a long range, as a result and can send out multiple types, such as like bombers and fighters.

Rise of Nations: Extended Edition
Rise of Nations is a real-time strategy game. The first version was released over 15 years ago. However, there are many changes made in every version released during these years. Here is what makes it so different from other RTS titles out there. Say, you can run the traditional victory condition of destroying your opponents. Moreover, you can sit back, play defense, and win by building enough wonders to win through a wonder victory.
The heart of this game is in the economic speed and strategy of growing your nation. You start off as a simple town with nothing more than a library, city center, a few farms and woodcutters, and other buildings based on your nation. Through research, resource gathering, upgrades, and economy management, you start to unlock new technology and buildings. These options open your strategy significantly. Once you move from the first age to the second, you now have knowledge and metal to worry about in your economy. You also have wonders that you can start to build, each with unique powers that can enhance your strategy for that battle.
Halo Wars 2
Halo Wars 2 is the de facto king of real-time strategy games on consoles, where the venerable genre is underrepresented because of the challenges of managing a lot of units at once on a gamepad. Unlike the best RTS games on PC, its campaign missions are flat and unambitious. Plus, its distinctive Blitz multiplayer mode sacrifices the stability of a level playing field in the name of fast and unpredictable action.
Halo Wars 2 opens as the UNSC ship from the last game. The Spirit of Fire, is awakened from an extended cryosleep in deep, uncharted space, lost and out of contact with human civilization decades after the events of Halo Wars. But they find more conflict rather than peace. This time in the form of The Banished — a nightmarish force of former-Covenant exiles so powerful and brutal that the combined might of the Covenant could not exterminate them. The Banished are led by a giant Brute named Atriox. And as you guess, he is determined to destroy anything standing in his path.
Sid Meier’s Civilization VI
Civilization VI is one of the leading strategy games on the planet. It has a perfect blend of accessibility and depth. Our protagonist splits the difference between deep-in-the-weeds technicality and historical accuracy and skate-on-the-surface mechanics. In the game, you should try to win through military might, economic prowess or the expansion’s new Diplomatic Victory. Thus, you should have an ability to multitask and think strategically on many fronts. But there are robust tutorials and engaging in-game advisers to hand-hold you through the mechanics.
