Still in the process of adding info, so sorry that it's not quite right yet. Wasn't this announced years ago?

Edit: Well that didn't go up very well...Anything else I've missed that I need to change? Sorry for the mess mods

Can't find any video for tactics. No announcements of any imminent release but it looks like they had some NZ testers back in December. Twitter says "early Spring 2014"

Awesome!!
Yes this was announced as in development years ago.

Released on a Tuesday night, that's interesting.

And free to play...that's worrying. Waiting for imps when others are ready.

Ps I believe this is either a port or somewhat related to the Xbox version. Would be doubly interested if anyone has any comparison when they play.

I knew so many who played and loved the one on the 360 I think it was but I never did try it. Will download this whenever it becomes available.
