All Heroes can be controlled directly in combat.

* Epic Storymode: A hilarious storyline by Jay Lender, a writer and director of the acclaimed cartoon series SpongeBob Squarepants™ and his writing partner Micah Wright, known for his writing contributions across multiple mediums. Military routines are accidentally installed into prototype robots, turning them into hunter killers. Disaster ensues and to save humanity, a new batch of robots is implanted with the brain scans of retired WWII vets, giving rise to an oil-swilling, brawling, robotic dirty dozen. Campaign includes 17 unique missions, hidden objectives and a robust reward system.

Well I hope for the best with this game, could do with something like this! It was announced a while ago so its nice to finally have some new screens and details. The only other "official" game of this style of RTS is Command & Destroy (there are others on the way but they are a while away) and I get a feeling that, that'll fall short of a good game.

Looks interesting, the graphics look great. But something just annoys me, i prefer a more top down RTS then a slight rotated down RTS. Reminds me of FFXII: Revenant Wings. Don't have any high expectations for this but will give it a go when it comes out nevertheless.
