Wargame: European Escalation download PC
Wargame: European Escalation download is a real-time strategy game on PC, that maintains the two core values of the classic wargame (depth and reflection) while offering a dynamic, real-time gameplay, and an incredibly spectacular and realistic visual experience.
Set in the rarely explored Cold War period of 1975-1985, Wargame: European Escalation download explores the battles 'that could have been' if history had taken the wrong turn at some point in the conflict. On both sides of the Iron Curtain that tears Germany in two, the two military alliances, NATO and the Warsaw Pact, are on the verge of war. The zeal of a patrol close to the East-german border eventually leads to a firefight with their enemy brothers. Soon the local skirmish pushes the already-tense relationship between NATO and the Warsaw Pact over the edge into all-out war.
Both superpowers have enough nuclear fire at their disposal to annihilate all life on the planet, but of course this is the very last resort; if an open conflict was to happen, it would take the form of conventional warfare in Germany, and throughout Europe.
The world is about to fall into the feared 3rd World War. Wargame: European Escalation download plunges you into the midst of this conflict, through a big and explosive military campaign!
With rare strategic depth, Wargame: European Escalation download stays accessible, and gives all strategy fans, beginners and experienced players alike, a unique, innovative and realistic gaming experience.
Whether solo-playing through a large campaign or fighting against other players from all over the world, reflection and situation awareness are determining factors for victory. Players will have to account for numerous parameters, such as covers, supplying and refueling, and morale, which influence the abilities of their units. They will also have to make good use of recon in order to discover what their opponents are planning and to plan their own tactics and battle plans accordingly.
Every one of the 300 units in the game possesses realistically rendered performance and behavior. Players must monitor which weapons systems their units may use, allowing or forbidding certain weapons in order to save precious ammunition. This allows users to tailor their battle strategy to a given situation; it is particularly useful in stealth maneuvers, in which a player could forbid the use of weapons until his troops are at close range and then take his enemy by surprise. When a unit fires a weapon, many parameters (including the optical systems used, the experience of the unit, if it or its target is moving or stationary, and whether it already had fired at this target before) are taken into account in order to determine the probabilities for each weapon system to hit their targets.
Wargame: European Escalation download is powered by the second generation of the performing IRISZOOM Engine. This powerful and high-performance engine allows the game to deliver spectacular clashes rendered in incredible detail.
The IRISZOOM is able to render millions of objects on maps as large as dozens of square miles. The impressive zoom feature allows you to dive down in an instant, without any transition, to the heart of battles involving hundreds of tanks, helicopters, or infantrymen, in order to follow your units during the fight.
This is a grand visual showcase that takes life before your eyes. From the explosions to the lighting, the raging fires to the high-resolution textures, and the sound effects to the numerous post-processing effects, everything has been designed and developed to produce a photo-realistic rendering of the battlefield.
This is complemented by highly detailed models of more than 300 different playable units: tanks, ground-assault helicopters, infantry, anti-air defense pieces, artillery, transport vehicles, supply trucks, recon units… all boast their own models, rendered in very high detail and faithful to their real-life counterparts. Zoom down from the sky to reveal even the smallest bolts and tank treads! Flying units also have their own flying models and move in the more realistic way above the battlefield.
In addition to its deep and tactic gameplay, Wargame offers a particularly impressive and spectacular visual experience. Never before has a strategy game seemed so realistic!
Wargame: European Escalation download provides a multiplayer experience as rich as the one it offers through its solo campaign.
Friendly games are possible in order to take part in a short and fun skirmish between friends, but competition is also very present, with official rankings supported and calculated through an Elo system.
Develop your tactics and unlock new units in order to add them to your 'deck' for you next battles. Will you choose a crushing strategy with huge numbers of weak yet cheap tanks, or will you try and manage small squads of expensive but skillful elite units?
With more than 300 units with unique characteristics, tactical possibilities and strategic combinations are nearly unlimited. Wars of harassment with fast but fragile units, choking techniques by attacking the enemy supply lines, squashing under overwhelming numbers; all strategies are viable if you plan carefully! In the end, only the tactical acuity of the players will determine the outcome of the battles. Do you have what it takes to reach the higher echelons of the official world ranking?
