Steel Division 2 Will Feature More Realistic Armour Penetration
Steel Division 2 by Eugen Systems is moving to the Eastern Front and with the geographical move, it’s also bringing some very exciting changes to the mechanics of the game. Here’s some details regarding tactics in Steel Division 2.
In the new dev diary, Eugen Systems states that the velocity and weight of your projectiles will impact its armour penetration values.
The changes in mechanics are mostly done due to one single major change. Th maximum distance of engagement has been increased to 2 kilometres ( it was 1.5 kilometres in Steel Division). This single change has required the team to relook at a lot of the tactical aspects of the game.
Tanks can also now move in light forests.
Firing on the move was something most tank crew didn’t do during world war 2. But in the eastern front it was a common sight to see T-34s rushing German tanks while firing at them. In Steel Division you can now do this. However, there will be an accuracy penalty for firing on the move but if you do it close enough, it could be devastating.
Eugen Systems are also adding a lot more types of critical hits in Steel Division 2. This also goes along well with new special ammunitions.
Steel Division 2 is looking very interesting the more I learn about it. We still don’t have a release date for it other than a 2019 release but it is available for pre-order.
