Among the best new features in this release is a new map called SoW2_Abandoned. This new map is of a very nice quality and all of the existing maps have also been improved. The focus of this release has been polishing and bug fixes. The first public beta was released quite early in the development, so it logically contained a number of bugs. With this new release they have fixed a lot of those bugs.
Background In Sands of War you are taking part in the big clash of civilizations. Many thought that our earth would become a planet with peace - things turned out different.
Sands of War history The year is 2023. Many can still remember what started this new world order. It all started in 2003. That was the year some nations, lead by the USA, invaded Iraq to take down a dictator. He was suspected of having mass destructions weapons. Others suspected USA of just wanting the control of some of the world biggest oil reserves.
USA invaded Iraq without any major problems at first. USA declared the war as over at May 1th, but for many it was not over. There continued to lots of people fighting against the USA. Terrorists or freedom fighters?
Lots of contries considered it as right to fight against terrorism. Together with USA they formed the Coalition for Democracy also known as CoDe. Other countries soon joined this new coalition.
CoDe started to invade more countries, in what they called "war against terror". Democratic nations around the world tried to keep together on the UN, but did not succeed.
Most of the Middle East formed their own alliance - AiM: the Alliance of Independant Monarchies. They wanted to stop CoDe and what they considered as CoDe's evil war. Some nations in the region though, remained neutral playing one side against the other. Europe was also divided, most joined either AIM or CoDe but a few remained neutral.
But the year is now 2023. Both AiM and CoDE are firmly entrenched in their bases of power. Both armies are looking for the next great leader to bring them victory and the heads of their enemies!
