    Hello
    So yea, I'm currently looking for a new game to play on my pc
    I'd like an RTS with a long campaign, a bit like warcraft and starcraft
    if it has sequel, thats even better
    If possible, I'd like the game to be released in 2010's
    IDK why, but I find it hard to hook to a very old game i havent played when I was younger... I prefer impressive graphics
    Plus, I'd like to push my GTX 1060 hard

    Any ideas?

    Not a big RTS junkie, but maybe you could check out Satellite Reign. I got it for free via Humble Bundle a while back, and it might be up your alley.

    Mmmh weird, doesnt really look like a rts
    To me, a rts is base management and ennemies with similar unit or another race
    You know, a bit like wc or sc

    StarCraft II? Warcraft 3? Command and Conquer? (Command and Conquer is really good, esp. the earlier entries)

    Ah. Warhammer 40,000 is pretty good.
    So is Age of Empires.

    Well, as good RTS options you always got your Company of Heroes, Empire (most of the series at least like Total War or Shogun 1/2, just more strategy and less actual RTS) and Homeworld (if you want a classic that has a remake with great graphics). I could give you more, but I hate RTS games, so don't expect much, more of a turn-based strategy fan here, just can't stand the constant flow of time on RTS games (I like to take my time or just move away from the computer every few and the game not stopping for that is a pain).

    Unfortunately, RTS'es had their best time in the early 2000's. Starcraft 2 is the easy king of the hill because there's not much competition. But there are some games. Let's see...

    * grey goo. From former westwood employees. I honestly couldn't get into it
    * rise of nations: this is an old one (2003), but to me it's better than age of empires. It's probably best to consider this a mix of AoE with civilization. It has real time strategy, but in the earlier ages you can't effectively attack your enemy because you'll lose health when going outside your territory. Meaning: you've got to research and harvest a lot. One of the things I like most is that if you advance ages faster than your enemies, you can get into hilarious situations where you have tanks while their "army" consists of horses and spear guys. :P It has a "world conquering" campaign, but IIRC it's more a series of skirmishes than the classic "here's one or two extra toys to play with and an interesting mission" structure.
    * ashes of the singularity: escalation. The scale on this is pretty large, but I rather enjoyed this one. Haven't played through the entire campaign, though.
    * supreme commander. I started off on the wrong foot on this one (long story). I can see why it's good, but nonetheless, I couldn't get into it enough.
    * planetary annihilation: titans. This reminded me a lot of ashes in the large scale of things (but on entire planets, this time). Pretty fun, but the campaign bored me after a while

    ...and one a bit "off category":

    * offworld trading company: this is a weird one in that it doesn't have weapons. And yet I have to agree with reviewers. On the surface, it might SEEM like this is a bit of city building and/or civilization (ooooh...exploring mars!) the game is extremely cut throat (but in an economic sense). As a result, it feels more like an RTS than quite some other games. It's not exactly taxing on any modern PC, though.

    I also vote on Warhammer 40k which have an awesome campaign but this will not not stress your 1060

    For an RTS and you want to push an 1060, I can say that likely Planetary Annihilation: Titans would be a good bet. Before i changed my graphics to my 1060 i couldnt run it and with it, it does push it quite a bit with several players and on high settings.

    It probably won't stress your graphics card but Dune 2000 is the best RTS ever made.
