Wargaming.net notified us today that Order of War: Challenge
has been delayed. This stand alone multiplayer game was originally going to be released today but is now scheduled for March 12th. CEO of Wargaming.net, Victor Kislyi, stated:
"We are committed to delivering quality products. That's why we decided to give Order of War: Challenge some more time that will be spent on enhancing and polishing certain areas of the game. That is the only reason for the delay."
Sounds good to me. Challenge will contain 12 more maps, 6 new modes and 4 survival missions. It's also free for those that already own Order of War
. You can purchase it as a stand alone game
if you so desire, but you'll miss out on the great fun
of the single player campaign. I guess I can wait. At least they gave us some new screens. Check 'em out!
