Confidential pictures that come directly from Eugen Systems have been intercepted by our recon squad at the development studio!
These 4 exclusive screenshots of Wargame AirLand Battle reveal a few of the game’s new units in the middle of what seems to be exercise maneuvers. For commanders of Wargame, this is a fortuitous opportunity to gather intel concerning the new forces that are about to join the battlefield and to prepare for the conflict that will rage soon.
According to our recon team, these units are but a few of the hundreds of new vehicles and combat units that are joining the huge army of Wargame. With the arrival of air forces (over 150 planes of all type) and nearly 200 new terrestrial combat units, Commanders in Wargame AirLand Battle will have a staggering selection of 750 different units to create their armies.
These screenshots also show the battlefields themselves underwent overhaul, with increases in variety, detail and realism. The new version of the IRISZOOM Engine™ is able to display immense battlefields, this time with realistic and spectacular reliefs directly reproduced from satellite images. Undoubtedly, Wargame AirLand Battle is about to enter a whole new dimension, which we will show during the coming months through more images and videos!
Wargame AirLand Battle will be released for PC in Spring 2013.
About Wargame AirLand Battle
Released in early 2012, Wargame: European Escalation by Eugen Systems managed to become the new benchmark in real-time strategy games, praised by critics and players alike. Wargame: AirLand Battle is about to bring the series to the next level as a full-fledged sequel!
Between 1975 and 1985, war between NATO and the Warsaw Pact is still raging, reaching Northern Europe, notably Scandinavia, whose architecture magnificent landscapes are faithfully recreated in the game. While the first Wargame made quite an impression with its powerful engine, Wargame: AirLand Battle is making a huge leap forward with its visuals, bringing a level of detail never before seen in a real-time strategy game. Flat relief and lack of variety is now a thing of the past, as the new version of the IRISZOOM Engine(tm) displays spectacular graphics, with a huge variety of units, scenery and impressive topography reproduced from satellite maps.
Command all the military resources of the Cold War era, from tanks to planes which make an outstanding entrance in the series! A total of 150 planes strengthen the playable arsenal of the game, from fighters to bombers to electronic warfare planes. Four new nations and their vehicles join the original eight from the first game, making a total of over 750 vehicles and combat units rendered in realistic detail with new textures! In Wargame: AirLand Battle, realism is also strengthened thanks to a new weapons system, better handling of fire and its effects, and a new Urban Combat Interface (UCI) allowing for battle inside cities block by block to take them over.
The solo part of the game is composed of several new dynamic campaigns, during which you will manage all aspects of the battle. Lead each squad of the Theatre of Operation, and make good use of your reinforcements and strategic support. Each decision you make has an impact on the tactical outcome of battles, and also impacts the evolution of the global conflict! Wargame: AirLand Battle still allows you to customize your own army in solo and multiplayer modes, thanks to the ‘Deck’ system, which is now being enhanced with an integrated ‘viewer’.
