Focus Home Interactive have just unveiled Wargame: European Escalation, the new real time strategy game from Eugen Systems, developer’s of the critically acclaimed Act of War: Direct Action, and R.U.S.E.
The press release goes on the state that Wargame: European Escalation is built around depth and reflection, the key elements of classic wargames. Above solid foundations, Eugen Systems builds an impressive list of features and enhancements in order to provide a unique and innovative gaming experience to all real-time strategy fans.
Wargame: European Escalation features intense real-time battles, stunning graphics, and the IRISZOOM system, which allows a continuous zoom from a global view of the map to the heart of the action. With real strategic gameplay, rich content, integration of EugenNet and its numerous online services, Wargame: European Escalation will unite all the world’s biggest strategy fans.
Set in the rarely explored period of 1975-1985, Wargame: European Escalation pits NATO (USA and Western Europe) against the Warsaw Pact (Soviet and Eastern European countries) in battles that explore “what could have been.” The spectre of nuclear warfare loomed large over the real Cold War, but this catastrophic outcome was the ultimate last resort as everyone knew that the first one to start nuclear hostilities would end up wiped out just the same. Large, armouredoffensives through Europe would certainly have been the core of this hypothetical war; and this is what the game’s explosive campaign takes you through!
Wargame: European Escalation will be fully unveiled at E3 in June and is set for release in the first quarter of 2012.
