Dogs of War is a real-time tactical game set in a full 3D environment. Three factions are fighting each other for supremacy: the Imperial Order, the rebel organization Warmonkeys, and the alien race of Mantai.

Battles take place with up to 200 individual units split between the three opposing forces, across sprawling battlefields of up to ten square kilometres. The player can go from commanding an army of a hundred units to controlling one sniper in third-person mode, looking along the telescopic sights of the rifle.

There are more than 40 different unit types to command, including infantry, mechanised units and alien creatures, and a diverse range of camera modes including long-range strategic and third-person views. The game contains 20 single player missions and many multiplayer levels.
