About the Real-Time Tactics category

Real-time tactics

Real-time tactics (abbreviated RTT and less commonly referred to as “fixed-unit real-time strategy”) is a subgenre of tactical wargames played in real-time simulating the considerations and circumstances of operational warfare and military tactics.

It is also sometimes considered a subgenre of real-time strategy, and thus may in this context exist as an element of gameplay or as a basis for the whole game. It is differentiated from real-time strategy gameplay by the lack of resource micromanagement and base or unit building, as well as the greater importance of individual units and a focus on complex battlefield tactics.

Example titles include Warhammer: Dark Omen, World In Conflict, the Close Combat series, and early tactical role-playing games such as Bokosuka Wars, Silver Ghost, and First Queen.
