Overview of Wargame: European Escalation

Yes Wargame: European Escalation isn't a name that makes you think that this RTS will be any different from most, but it is. By Eugen Systems, the creators of Ruse, Wargame gives you control of hundreds of units in massive cold war battles that uses a card based system to customize your armies. The game is set during the period of 1975-1985 in a what if scenario of NATO and Western European powers against Russia and Eastern European countries. You will lead huge customizable armies on massive maps against other players or in the single player campaign. One of the games most interesting features is it's army customization. There are three hundred and sixty-one units in the game, all of which you can collect in multiplayer and use to build customize army decks. In any single battle you can bring over a hundred units into the fight and all of these units are persistent. They will gain experience, rank up, become stronger, which of course means you will have to protect your units from being wiped out and losing all that experience. Multiplayer will allow games as large as four versus four or you may even technically do seven versus one. Of course on top of the multiplayer there will be a hefty single player campaign that will focus on story. Honestly the game looks pretty exciting and I am currently working on some impressions of it. For now, check out the main website for more information or watch this very extensive recent video that shows off many of the game's features. I will be back as soon as I can to give some hands on impressions and I will also be working on a full review of the game. The game comes out on February 23rd on Steam or through their website. If you pre-order the game you immediately get into the multiplayer beta on Steam. Thanks for reading and be back soon.
