Coming March 3rd to the XBox Live Marketplace, and the Official Xbox Magazine, The Outfit, THQ’s WWII action title.
The demo will feature the Strategic Victory multiplayer mode, which Joystiq considers the most interesting mode.
Up to eight players are divided into two teams. Each team starts with several control towers and 150 command points. Teams lose points when their heroes are killed, bases are destroyed, or they lose a majority of their control towers. The first team to reach zero command points is defeated.
Each player will have access to the destruction-on-demand feature, using the team’s accumulated F-Us (Field Units) to order in AI reinforcements, vehicles, air strikes, and weaponry. In addition, maps contain neutral resource buildings that, when captured, become spawn points and grant access to special destruction-on-demand items. However, capturing a resource building does not affect your team’s command point total, at least, not directly.
