GabberGames announces the release of War, the Game
, calling this
"PC strategy gaming for the masses." That said, they also call this one of those
games that's difficult to master in spite of its simplicity, though one element
that sets it apart from a typical RTS game is a spherical map, making for a more
global version of a global conflict. This carries a 10% launch discount, and
here's word on gameplay:
'War, the Game' is a global Real Time
Take the role of a supreme commander directing your armies across the globe. Use
your strategic wit to battle AI and other players in realistic scenarios.
Conquer the world, city by city.
Easy to learn, difficult to master.
'War, the Game' only has 7 army types. The game rules are simple and
transparent. The first few scenarios teach you all you need to know. After that
it is down to your braininess.
Variety is the spice of life.
Take command of the armed forced of a large variety of nations. Scenarios
require wildly different strategies to win that are not obvious as you start
out. The AI is expanding so there is little time to decide.
The network scenarios are also varied. 25 players in a big scrum or 1 on 1. With
or without alliances.
