WORLD WAR ONE SET FOR NOVEMBER RE-RUN
HISTORICALLY ACCURATE, TURN BASED STRATEGY GAME RECREATES THE GREAT WAR
Ascaron Entertainment and AGEOD have announced that the historically accurate turn based strategy game, World War One, will be released in November 2008. The new game will allow players to take command of one of six Great nations including Britain, Germany and Russia, as they try to ensure victory and restore peace in Europe.
Players can take on the role of Kitchener, Joffre, Luddendorf, Clemenceau, Czar Nicholas II or Enver Pasha as they search for the strategy to avoid defeat in the first truly global war. All the tools for victory are available within the game, but it is up to the player to identify them and employ them in the most efficient way.
Charged with coordinating the manoeuvres of their Mother country and those in league with it, players are in command of a number of armies and fleets as they engage in combat on land and at sea. Crucial decisions, such as hiring the best generals, timely deployment of reserves and investing in weapons research, will help lead the player to a famous victory.
Clever tactical decisions can have a significant impact on the balance of war as the player decides on how to handle the Press, manage public opinion, build spirit or destroy enemy morale. Political actions, such as the deployment of diplomatic envoys to recruit neutral countries, could broaden the scope of the war, whilst tipping the balance of power in the player’s favour.
Highly accurate and greatly detailed, yet simple and fun to play, World War One will give turn based strategy fans the chance to change history and recreate the war that shaped the world.
