Depending on the mission, the map will either be completely undiscovered (shrouded) or covered in the “fog of war”. As you explore shrouded areas the underlying terrain and any enemies present will become visible with the exact range depending on each unit’s characteristics. However, if you do not maintain a physical presence with either units or buildings in an area, the fog of war will return. Special buildings such as spotlights and security systems can be captured and used to reveal enemy units at long distance. Enemy units may be hiding within the fog of war, so be careful not to move into an area without screening your advance.
