Apologies for the picture resolution, but right now the trailer only seems to be 360p.

Ubisoft have announced Toy Soldiers: War Chest, the newest iteration of the fantastic action tower-defence series.

And, happily, this one looks to be completely out of its tree. The first was mock-serious, with a World War I vibe (only with toy soldiers). The second was themed around both the Cold War and the 80s, pitting the US against the USSR. And Toy Soldiers: War Chest? Er. Well, it’s going to have four armies, and two have been announced: the Germans, returning from Toy Soldiers, and… the Star Power army, led by Starbright. Which involves pixies and unicorns. Yes.

Generally speaking, Toy Soldiers was a tower-defence game that let you take direct control of your turrets/vehicles/whatever and bomb the invaders yourself. Wanted to fly a biplane? Go for it. Take control of that flak cannon? Sure. This looks to be much the same, but with four armies instead of two, a load more turrets and turret upgrades, expanded game modes and multiplayer modes, and unicorns. LOOK UNICORNS ARE AWESOME OKAY.

Toy Soldiers: War Chest is due out in early 2015, and you can have a gander at the rather excellent (and bizarrely low-res) reveal trailer below. Just don’t look at the comments. A general YouTube rule, I know, but I made that mistake and regretted it almost immediately.

Edit: Looks like a video with proper resolution options is available now, so here it is.

    The undisputed star of Toy Soldiers: Cold War was the Rambo-style demented commando guy, so branching out into even more absurd territory seems like a good plan.

    Also that giant rolling cat moneybox thing looks terrific.
