Gettysburg: Armored Warfare will now be the third game to officially use Steam Workshop for it's modding needs. If you do not know the game here is a quick overview, if you want a more substantial overview check out the link above; it is a 64 player RTS/FPS hybrid that mixes those two genre's in some very interesting ways. It also is very interesting because of it's theme, Civil War with futuristic technology like gatling guns, zeppelins, tanks and more. You will have fully customizable armies that you can use in fairly normal RTS game modes like deathmatch and control zones. It is all being made by Radioactive Software, which consisted of only one developer last time I checked, Danny Green, and it is for PC specifically. It is also being published by Paradox Interactive, whom you may know for Crusader Kings, Sengoku, A Game of Dwarves or many others games. Amazingly enough Gettysburg looks pretty decent graphically and is only going to cost $10, or it will be Free to Play, there is conflicting information about that. Now onto what I came here to talk about, Steam Workshop.
Paradox Interactive and Radioactive Software announced yesterday that Gettysburg: Armored Warfare will be coming with a full editor and modding tools, all of which will be compatible with Steam Workshop and they will use Steam Workshop as it's main outlet for modding community. I contacted Radioactive Software to try to garner some more information about the game, specifically the release date, which is supposed to be Q1 2012. Check out this very recent interview with Danny Green in which he explains quite a deal about the game and goes over how thousand of units will be battling with up to sixty-four players controlling them. The game looks crazy, but also very promising, take a look and check out the links below for more information.
