Battle Islands: Commanders

505 Games keep coming out with great franchises. Battle Islands has a new stablemate as 505 announce Battle Islands: Commanders will hit the Xbox One very, very soon.

If you’ve not seen or played it before, Battle Islands: Commanders merges tower defence and collectible card-styles of gameplay. Players will be able to master the art of war in this fast-paced strategy game.

Battle Islands: Commanders allows you to face off against commanders from around the world in real-time combat, enabling you to reap the spoils of war. The game will feature an already huge and growing roster of some of the most iconic vehicles, troops and weaponry of World War 2, including your favourite tanks and fighter planes.

You can build the ultimate deck of battle units, each with their own unique skills for you to devise the most devastating attacks while also trying to defend yourself as you take part in major battles across seven theatres of war. Fight in the vast deserts of North Africa and frozen wasteland landscape of the Eastern Front. Use the environment to annihilate your opponents along the way, earn Supply Crates and unlock new units that will open up new tactical possibilities.

Form pacts to exchange units and hone your skills in friendly sparring matches. Find that perfect balance between defence and attack and apply it to your own strategies and study your team-mates’ moves to learn new tactics before the enemy troops advance on you.

Battle Islands: Commanders is set for release on the 14th of February on Xbox One. The game will be free-to-play for all Xbox Live Gold subscribers and if you’re quick, you’ll be able to grab it early as it has been made available for pre-download today.

Here’s a nice trailer to show you what you could be up to very soon indeed.
