Line War is a new type of PvP multiplayer-only RTS game.

Inspired by classic RTS titles like Command and Conquer with a nod to famed board game Axis and Allies, Line War combines elements of 4X, wargame, and real-time tactics genres into a unique strategic experience for veterans and newcomers.

Configure your command lines to filter out certain units to flank your enemies, dig-in or feed distant frontlines.

This game has a never-before-seen approach that lets you focus on drawing commands and executing a strategy rather than managing individual units. Chain commands and execute orchestrated operations for coordinated attacks against your opponent. This command system sets Line War apart from other strategy games.Line War features a single traditional, recognizable army to ensure the games focus is on balance and strategy. Each unit plays a distinct and carefully balanced role.Land Units: Infantry, Commando, Artillery, Tank, SAMAir Units: Helicopter, Interceptor, Striker, Bomber, Transport Jet, RocketNaval Units: Landing Craft, Destroyer, Missile Ship, Cruiser, SubmarineLine War focuses on strategy.
