Soldiers Heroes of WW2 / Faces of War / Men of War are very close to my heart as well, ...

 

I searched for "Outfront" after reading this, remembering that name from a forum. SHoWW2 is AKA "Outfront 1" apparently, see this:

https://steamcommuni...52451565100140/

 

Also Outfront 2 and 3 are mentioned there. Have you ever come across those? I have the one called Silent Heroes, not sure where it fits in that time line. But it's great.

 

I remember reading about it. According to wikipedia ( https://en.wikipedia...of_World_War_II )There were 3 standalone expansion packs for Soldiers, Outfront 1, 2 and 3. But they were never released outside Eastern Europe, or maybe just Russia. I am from Poland and from what I recall they released Outfront 1 here, but not 2 and 3.

These were completely different games to the Faces of Wars which is a proper sequel. I think i played Outfront 1, but not the later ones.

What are those games like then? They're not RTS's?

 

So from that wiki link: Faces of War is indeed Outfront II.

Sorry, i might have not explained it clearly. What I mean is that these "Outfronts 1-3" were standalone expansions to Soldiers and not a proper sequel like Faces of War is. Alos I think Faces of War was called "Outfront" in some countries but I am not sure...

So how it stands is:

 

Soldiers - 1st game. (released in 2004)

Outfront 1 - standalone expansion for Soldiers. (released in 2005)

Outfront 2 - standalone expansion for Soldiers released only in Eastern Europe (released in 2006)

Outfront 3 - standalone expansion for Soldiers released only in Eastern Europe (released in 2008 )

 

Faces of War - proper sequel to Soldiers (released 2006) - I think it was called Outfront in some countries but I am not certain...)

Faces of War: Brothers in arms - standalone expansion to Faces of War (released in 2007)

@ Jack O'Hara Thank you for these, Roma Incognita seems really a commandos-like, most of the others look like more action-oriented. Of those I played Gone Rogue during the springtime Steam NextFest, it's also towards action with the directly controlled sole character, quite promising, but slightly different I think.

I'm starting to believe that this isn't the most practical way of catalogizing titles, nontheless here's the update. And also, maybe I should start a new topic, reserve the first post for this image that I can regulary swap if needed, instead of spamming this topic...
