    Hello my fellow comrades, here is a PC gamer that need a good modern RTS game, i dont care for price, requirements just need to play modern and good RTS if there is one, last what i have played it was only Age of Empires I and II remastered, CNC whole Serial and Desert of Kharak - Homeworld.

    Was googling for upcoming and current RTS games, but its futile, and please guys avoid answering Warcraft 3 Reforged(Its abomination of a game).

    Thank you in advance.

    @OnlyJoeKing That's an excellent game, but its RTS components are only a small part of it. It's a turn-based Grand Strategy game before it's an RTS.

    "Pure" RTSes seem to be a bit unfashionable as a genre these days. The competitive world moved onto MOBAs and the lack of easy console porting makes them tough mass-market propositions. Ashes of the Singularity is probably the best recent-ish entry in the genre.

    Just play Starcraft 2 again. :)

    Otherwise I liked They Are Billions for the base building aspect, the Conan rip off might also be worth a look.

    I've heard good things about Tooth and Tail as well, though not played it myself.

    @Rogueywon I reckon the real time battles in TW:W2 are good enough to recommend it. It's such a good game! He might end up liking the grand strategy element.

    Plus if it's just for multiplayer, the battles are great too. I've not played too much online but it seems excellent.

    But yeah, STRICTLY speaking it isn't just an rts!

    I see captbirdseye got here first, but I think Petroglyph's 8-bit games (Armies, Invaders and Hordes) are supposed to be good.

    Although I finished it and did enjoy it Grey Goo was slightly too shallow...

    Although again not perfect (and no story campaign beyond "murder everyone") I enjoyed a few runthroughs of Planetary Annihilation...Still have a key lying around of that if you're interested?

    Same with Dawn of War. Poor Relic, what did they do to you? :(

    Although I still have my fingers crossed that Iron Harvest can pull that flavour of RTS back from the brink.

    Northgard is really good, but it's a fairly slow-paced one focused more on building up your village than combat, so depends what you want. It's definitely got Age of Empires vibes though.

    At least there are some on the horizon (already mentioned here). New age of empires and iron harvest.

    Northgard would be your best bet currently and it's cheap

    Not really a new game, but they did a remake of Cossacks a couple of years ago, which you might enjoy if you like Age of Empires.

    If you like war games with no base building, then Ultimate General Gettysburg is a good RTS too.
