Preview of the newly announced Anomaly 2 | Saving Content

Excerpt: "Control options have improved the PC side of things: WASD is now supported. Anomaly: Warzone Earth was purely mouse-driven. As of now, there isn’t any gamepad support, but it is in the menu to eventually be an option. It feels a lot smoother and responsive using the keyboard. It’s a bit more precision running about the battlefield to collect power-ups and distract enemy turrets.

As your run around the battlefield, you are live commanding your troops by setting their paths, and often times updating them on-the-fly. Setting a route is as easy as pressing a button or scrolling the mouse wheel. Navigating the world allows you to grab pickups like repairs and decoys. You can deploy these to distract enemy turret fire so your guys can get in massive damage before they notice, or lay down a healing aura to bring your guys back from near-death. Along the way you’ll earn currency which can be used to purchase new units, or upgrade existing ones. The money is finite, so choose wisely. But you can sell it, should you make a mistake." (Anomaly 2, PC)
