Wargame: European Escalation creates a grand visual showcase

Wargame: European Escalation, the new real-time strategy PC game developed by Eugen Systems, the studio that brought you Act of War: Direct Action, and more recently R.U.S.E.™, today unveiled a series of 6 exclusive screenshots.

With its incredible graphics engine, Wargame: European Escalation delivers spectacular clashes rendered in incredible detail. The impressive zoom feature allows you to fly across huge maps (dozens of square kilometers) and then dive down to earth without any transition. This commanding view lets players stay at the heart of the fight, monitoring hundreds of tanks, helicopters and soldiers at once.

All this creates a grand visual showcase: explosions, lights, and raging fires are all presented in exceptional detail. 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, all faithful to their real-life counterparts. Zoom down from the sky to reveal even the smallest bolts and tank treads!

For experienced RTS players as well as fans of the genre, Wargame: European Escalation will deliver a gaming experience that is both fun and deeply tactical. War never has felt so real, with a level of detail that raises the bar on the strategy game genre. The six included images are just a taste of the military action that’ll rage forth in late 2011!

About Wargame: European Escalation
Wargame: European Escalation, the new real time strategy game from Eugen Systems, a specialist of the genre and developer of the criticallylauded Act of War: Direct Action, and more recently R.U.S.E.™.

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 amazing 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 specter 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, armored offensives 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 available exclusively on PC, Q4 2011.
