"MidEast Crisis 2 Marches on to an August Release"

JULY 24, 2008 PRESS RELEASE FOR MEC2

The total conversion for CnC3 MIDEAST CRISIS 2 marches onward to its now confirmed August 2008 release date in style with the new transport unit known as the Blackhawk. The Blackhawk carries infantry across the map in style.

Also, if you've ever wondered how some of this mod's unique features pan out in the field, wonder no more! The lead dev explained how to survive as GOI against a Merkava attack in a recent forum post and screenshot ( www.isotx.com/~users/smurfbizkit/mec2/news/july08_screen3.jpg):

"See a large force of Merkava's approaching your base? Your MiGs are busy reloading. What do you do?

It's simple. Hit the 'Mr.Stop' and 'Production Boost' powers, halting the enemy units and drastically increasing your production speed and letting you crank out T-90's with ease. Something to note: when your production is increased, the smoke stacks of your factories spew fire (you can see it on the production building in the screens)."

As usual, there's more up at our official MEC2 forums: http://www.isotx.com/forums/index.php?topic=6865
