American Conquest: Divided Nation is a real-time strategy game based upon events in early American history. In the game, Players will take on the role of Civil War general, Texas militia leader or pirate captain. Building upon the successful American Conquest franchise, Divided Nation offers nine historically inspired campaigns played across more than 50 maps set in a turbulent 19th-century America. The game will introduce more than 100 new units, 20 new building types and a variety of unique game play and combat model enhancements appropriate for the time period. Campaigns span historical conflicts including the American Civil War, the Texas War of Independence and the Battle of New Orleans.

The game aims to take the American Conquest concept into the 19th century, reflecting the nature of the American wars of that period, with their advanced technologies, huge battles and complex strategy, and devastating nature.

The game will feature authentic uniforms and troop types, a wide range of weapons, and battles based on real topographical data and historical sources. With a smaller number of nations in the game, a much wider variety of troop types and uniforms will be possible, resulting in impressive and historically engaging missions. The universally known images of the blue and grey uniforms of the Civil War, and such sights as the church of the Alamo and the grand, almost Napoleonic, armies of Santa Anna will bring these evocative conflicts to life.

The campaigns supplied with the game will follow the great generals through their most famous victories and defeats, and range from modest encounters to the vast battles of Gettysburg and Shiloh, and across terrain varying from the lush forests of the north to the deserts of the far south. The campaigns of the Texas Mexican war, including the famous Alamo siege, will provide a welcome change of pace and some exciting color.
