Gamebiz has posted a preview of A&A:
One of the strongest aspects of the
game's real-time strategy is the dynamic battles. The
battles will be randomly generated with geographical,
logistical, and historical importance of each battle. Some
of the most notable battles of WWII are present, the landing
at Omaha Beach, the battle Arnhem bridge, invading the
islands of Iwo Jima and Guadalcanal, the battle of Dunkirk
and battling across the deserts of North Africa.. TimeGate
Studios wanted to concentrate on depicting the difficulties
and struggles of strategy when at war. And to capture the
essence and feel of a commander in WWII.
Beta Testing has begun
Looks like beta testing has begun as Atari has been
sending out emails to lucky testers (according to
this post on the Atari boards).
