Own a PC and switched over to a Mac system? No worries, players that own the PC version can download the Mac version for free. It hasn't been confirmed if it works in the opposite direction, however.
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.
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!
