Rising Generals has been announced by Hamburg-based InnoGames, and the best way to describe it is by using all sorts of hyphenated compounds, due to it being a PvP-heavy, cross-platform, strategy-MMO with game worlds that house up to 40,000 players each.

VG247 visited the studio last week and filmed the gameplay demo. It’s above.

Players will have access to numerous tanks, armored vehicles and dozens of deadly aircraft.

The game is playable across iOS and Android-phones and tablets as well through your browser, all with the same content.

You can apply for the upcoming beta which is scheduled for this summer.

Here’s a description:

In Rising Generals, players become commander of a military base, which needs to be quickly upgraded and staffed with troops in order to defend against and attack hostile neighbors. Unlockable technologies as well as officers and generals provide helpful bonuses and perks. Aimed at triggering instant action, Rising Generals progresses at a significantly higher speed than other online strategy games. Real-time 3D animations give each battle a unique feeling, and more than 20 units provide players with lots of strategic options.

“We want the Rising Generals players to experience a feeling of thrill and exhilaration in a short time period. Immediacy, accessibility and sensory feedback are core aspects of the game”, says the game’s producer Christoph Schmidt.

Bruce Shelley, known for his work on Civilization and the Age of Empires series, helped out with development by working several months with the team.

InnoGames previously created the online games Tribal Wars, Forge of Empires and Grepolis.
