'Wargame Red Dragon' Rolls Out Second Free DLC

by Rainier on Sept. 2, 2014 @ 8:56 a.m. PDT

Wargame Red Dragon is a real time strategy game that takes us deep into the Eastern territories with a host of new features.

Wargame Red Dragon, the third game in this series of stragegy games, is now even more ambitious and, similar to Wargame AirLand Battle, contains a host of new features. Wargame Red Dragon essentially retains the same game mechanics that made the series so successful, but the action leaves Europe for the first time and shifts to a conflict in central Asia between 1975 and 1991.

Five new nations, among which China and North Korea, join the armed forces in Wargame with over 450 new units. The introduction of naval and amphibian units is a particular highlight, and the maritime and river areas provide fresh strategic opportunities! The full cohort of each army is therefore represented with a phenomenal total of more than 1,300 units and combat vehicles, all reproduced in meticulous detail from real military hardware. A new solo campaign plunges players headlong into a hellish war around Korea, while Wargame's extensive, road-tested multiplayer mode will engage them in some intense and spectacular battles with up to 20 other players simultaneously!

In this new expansion for Eugen Systems' real-time strategy game, which will patch automatically into the game today, 12 new units and an additional full-length story campaign are added, which takes the war to 1992 charging an uchronical alternate-history narrative.

Fielding some of the most advanced military technology of the time, The Second Korean War will see China, North Korea, and the Soviet Union pit themselves against the might of the United Nations' coalitions. Armed with the Patriot missile system, the USA buffs their anti-air defenses, as do the Chinese with the JH-7. The South Korean K9-Thunder marches onto the field, to the detriment of the USSR's elite Spetsnaz GRU infantry units.

In the all-new campaign, a coup against Mikhail Gorbachev succeeded in 1991, a year prior to the events of the narrative. The former guard succeeds Gorbachev, and restores Soviet order, bringing them closer to the communist leaders in Asia, as leaders in the West grow ever-distant from the Soviet super-power. After a year of friction, the entire Korean peninsula is at war as the Soviets and UN coalitions take their increasingly distancing ideologies onto the battlefield.
