'Wargame: European Escalation' Gets Linux Edition, Adds Cross-Platform Play

Wargame: European Escalation is built around depth and reflection, the key elements of classic wargames, featuring intense real-time battles, stunning graphics, and the amazing IRISZOOM system, which allows a continuous zoom from a global view of the map to the heart of the action.

Wargame: European Escalation delivers spectacular clashes rendered in incredible detail. The impressive zoom feature allows you to fly across huge maps (dozens of square kilometers) and then dive down to earth without any transition. This commanding view lets players stay at the heart of the fight, monitoring hundreds of tanks, helicopters and soldiers at once.

All this creates a grand visual showcase: explosions, lights, and raging fires are all presented in exceptional detail. Everything has been designed and developed to produce a photo-realistic rendering of the battlefield. This is complemented by highly detailed models of more than 300 different playable units, all faithful to their real-life counterparts. Zoom down from the sky to reveal even the smallest bolts and tank treads!

With real strategic gameplay, rich content, integration of EugenNet and its numerous online services, Wargame: European Escalation will unite all the world’s biggest 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!

Wargame European Escalation today arrives on Linux through Steam digital distribution platform!

Wargame players will also be happy to learn that a new update has just been deployed, enabling cross-platform multiplayer games! All players of Wargame on PC, Mac and Linux may now battle together in friendly or ranked matches!

It is also worth to note that all current owners of Wargame on PC or Mac may, if they wish so, download the Linux version of the game for free.
