Paradox Interactive and Radioactive Software today announced that Gettysburg: Armored Warfare, its hybrid multiplayer Third-Person Shooter (TPS)/Real-Time Strategy (RTS) game, will be available on March 27th for $9.99 on Steam and other digital distribution services.
Gettysburg: Armored Warfare brings fast paced action to the PC in an alternate reality version of the Civil War. Radioactive Software will continue to support the game after launch and further develop the editor as well as add tools for players to mod the game and become creators themselves.
“Gettysburg: Armored Warfare will bring the fast action of a third-person shooter and the deep strategy experiences of an RTS together in a unique way,” said Gordon Van Dyke, Senior Producer at Paradox Interactive. “It’s amazing to see the game come together and deliver on the fun factor we were shooting for, and the fact that a one-man team was able to pull that off is nothing short of spectacular.”
Union and Confederate troops spawn and vie for control of the battlefield with futuristic weapons and familiar formations. Both sides battle over control points as time passes and players lay waste to the enemy. The round ends when one side has reached zero attrition points and the other team is victorious.
