A real-time strategy game with unique AI and gameplay set in the American Civil War.

Ultimate General: Gettysburg commemorates the 150th anniversary of America's Civil War most defining moment: the Battle of Gettysburg. About 51,000 soldiers were casualties in this three-day battle which was fought 1-3 July 1863 around the small city of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The full order of battle for Union and Confederate - all the brigades and their important officers - will be available for you to command. A historically accurate map will include the most significant locations around Gettysburg. Brief historical data for units, people and places will help you understand the events and the tactics of this glorious battle.

Main Features

  • Take Command - Fight the Battle of Gettysburg as a Union or Confederate general and attempt to rewrite history through a chain of historical and “what if” battle scenarios.
  • Dynamic Progress - Your performance in battles affects future missions. Losing too many soldiers in your first encounter will drastically change the last days of your battle.
  • Easy controls - Deep tactical gameplay driven by simple controls. Give orders to hundreds of troops organised in brigades of infantry, cavalry and artillery. 
  • Thinking Soldiers - Units can retaliate and defend themselves without player input and excessive micromanagement, giving you the freedom to focus on other more important strategic matters.
  • Realistic Morale - One of the most complex morale systems ever created makes your tactical decisions crucial on the battlefield – demoralised troops become irresponsive, devastating volleys cause havoc in your lines, flank attacks can rout your strongest units.
  • Terrain Advantage - High ground provides increased weapon ranges, accuracy  and morale bonuses. He, who takes the hills, wins the battle. 
  • Challenge - AI does not need traditional game cheats or hidden tricks to face off against humans.  Innovative Ultimate General AI comes with different characters such as "Careless", "Indecisive", “Defensive”, “Cautious”, “Cunning”, “Aggressive” or “Dynamic”.
