'Guns of August' - 11 New Screens

by Rainier on June 4, 2007 @ 10:34 a.m. PDT

Guns of August is a WWI turn-based strategy game putting you in command of waging war at a grand strategic scale from Paris to Baghdad. The entire Western, Eastern, Italian and Balkan fronts are included as are the three fronts of the Ottoman Empire.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “I’ve been anxiously awaiting the release of Adanac’s latest project for quite some time now and I’m confident gamers will be pleased with what’s coming. These screenshots offer just a snippet of the rich gameplay and realistic recreation of the First World War which many have tried to model, but few have succeeded.”

Guns of August puts players in command of waging World War I at a grand strategic scale from Paris to Baghdad. The entire Western, Eastern, Italian and Balkan fronts are included as are the three fronts of the Ottoman Empire. Gamers will get to try their hand at production, combat (but of course!), diplomacy, research, the horrors of the trenches, and more. Use land units like infantry corps complete with separate artillery units for precisely directing barrages on the enemy’s line. As time goes on, players must deal with changing combat situations like the introduction of Stossstruppen and even mighty tanks charging through lines to break through the stalemate! Guns of August fully supports a robust AI to fight against or play by email, so step back to the early 20th Century and hear the guns of August!
