Dragoon: The Prussian War Machine focuses entirely on the campaigns of one of history's most brilliant military leaders, Frederick the Great of Prussia. Players will be allowed to travel back in time through the miracle of PC gaming and relive the glory of Prussia's zenith. With over twenty scenarios to choose from, including such famous battles as Kolin and Chotusitz, players will face off against the armies of Saxony, Austria, and Bavaria, battling across beautifully rendered landscapes that change to the season. Experience what it would have been like to have been a commander perched on top a nearby hill watching the ensuing battle unfold as animated soldiers march, fight, and of course, sometimes die for your cause. Flags dance in the wind, and the sounds of battle will rattle your desk.
Like its predecessor, Horse & Musket, Dragoon: The Prussian War Machine will remain turn-based, with its emphasis on command and control. Those armies comprised of strong willed leaders and fearless troops will be poised to carry the day, ready to crush their opponents who don't quite measure up to their standards. Unit activation is entirely dependent on leadership initiative and troop morale, meaning that players will have to think like their counterparts from hundreds of years ago, not simply try to create a Hussar rush.
Dragoon: The Prussian War Machine will feature all the chrome one expects from a David Erickson title, such as formations, cavalry charges, disruptions, a scenario editor, the ability to play live over the 'Net or through PBEM, and much more.
