The Flare Path: And The Battling Bastards Of Charlie Sector

Those creatures perched on the finials of Castle Shotgun? Pigs. The headline on the front of today's Hell Gazette - “HITLER AND STALIN WIN FIGURE SKATING GOLDS IN INAUGURAL WINTER GAMES”? Totally true. Pour yourself a stiff drink and schedule an emergency meeting between your eyebrows and hairline. You're about to read a late but heartfelt billet-doux to Wargame: Red Dragon on RPS!

Not A New Wargame, But A War Game: Act Of Aggression

Before Eugen Systems went big - in scale and, eventually, sales - with the Wargame series, they worked on two Act of War games. More traditional real-time strategy fare, they were as much about base building and resource gathering as they were accurate tank physics. They even had live-action cutscenes spliced together with machinima. Now Eugen are returning to the format with Act of Aggresion:…

More Like Wargame: Rad Dragon

I'll admit that I don't often know what the hell is going on. This is a blanket statement that applies to many areas of my life - games, meals, showers - I've had confusion during all of them. But it's not often that a trailer will leave me with quite the same pleasant non-understanding as finding a surprise Terry's Chocolate Orange in my bed. The…

Naval Gazing – Wargame: Red Dragon Trailers Still The Tops

Wargame: Red Dragon is a large-scale strategy game in which you command imprisoned serial killer Hannibal Lecter as he assists in the creation of a wargame. The wargame is set in Asia during an alternate history 1980's in which the cold war ran hot, and is being designed by Will Graham, whose apparent empathic gifts are only functionally useful in the creation of boardgame rulesets…

The Only Winning Move: Wargame: Red Dragon Trailer

I showed the last Wargame: Red Dragon trailer to a friend who is knowledgeable about games. As it drew to a close they turned to me and asked, "What kind of game is this?" It's a large-scale real-time strategy game with a dynamic campaign map, multiplayer, hundreds of modernish military units, and taut tactical combat, but I don't know if it's a good thing or…

First Wargame: Red Dragon Teaser Trailer Makes Me Randy

Wargame: Red Dragon was announced at last year's Gamescom, but there was very little to see of Eugen's latest large-scale real-time tactics game. Maybe nothing? I don't know, I wasn't really there. Now the first teaser trailer has been released and it has boom, bakoosh, skadoosh, krekekkkckckck, ra-tt-tt-tt, fwoosh, skrooooosh and fump-fump-fump. Even the YouTube logos at the end make exciting war noises. The Wargame…

Wargame’s New DLC Seems Generous

There are oversights on RPS. I'd be the first to admit it. We didn't review Wargame: Airland Battle, and we should have done. We still might! We should. I should. In fact, here's a capsule review from the few hours I spent with it: it's a fine RTS. Better, I would say, that Eugen's previous games, Act Of War, and RUSE, the latter of which…

Decks Of War: Wargame: Airland Battle Trailer

Apologies to non-UK readers for the next few sentences. Here is some hold music to tide you over. The word "deck" is interesting. In the hands of Alan Titchmarsh, for example, it means "The bit of a garden that is not the grass". In certain parts of northern England it means "He who is not Ant", and it is spoken with reverence and awe by…

Real-Time Hot: Wargame Airland Battle Dated, Beta

Named in what appears to be a bid to play with search engine terms, Wargame Airland Battle is now available to those who pre-order. The sequel to the simply excellent European Escalation will appear on the 22nd of the marvelous month of May, and until then there's a beta going on. Eugen explain: "The early access Beta gives an exclusive and immediate access to the…

Commanderer: Wargame’s ‘Commander’ Add On Is Free

Eugen send word that they've released a free DLC (aka "a patch") for Wargame. It contains a new game mode, they explain: "Wargame’s DLC features "Economy", a new game mode available in both multiplayer and AI matches with new objectives for commanders worldwide. To earn victory in this mode, you will have to reach a certain number of Command Points before your opponents (points obtained…

Air, Land, And C4: Wargame AirLand Battle

RPS chum Joe Robinson talked to Eugen Systems about their new RTS, Wargame: Airland Battle, and he reports back to us on the new dynamic single player campaign, and the revamped multiplayer that should make this game of war shine most phosphorescently. A stand-alone expansion as opposed to a sequel, Wargame: AirLand Battle (named after an old US Army doctrine during the Cold War) exists…

What Is This Game About? Wargame: AirLand Battle

Yes, Eugen Systems have announced a sequel to the unimaginatively titled Cold War RTS Wargame: European Escalation, and it's called, amusingly, Wargame: AirLand Battle. This sequel is, once again, an imaginary World War III scenario in which NATO and Warsaw Pact forces duke it out across Europe. It is also going to come with added shiny, as they explain: "Wargame: AirLand Battle will be the…

Wargame: European Escalation – A Battle Report

Wargame: European Escalation snuck up on me like a Delta Squad stealthing around the side of the map in a pair of Chinooks. The dull, heavy register of the rotors sounded a rhythmic beat that went utterly unnoticed by the net of Luchs Recon Vehicles that I’d spread like an ill-repaired net across my game-spotting flanks. Which is to say that I didn’t hear about…

Wargame: European Escalation Escalates For Free

We mentioned earlier in the week how impressed we are with Wargame: European Escalation, and it is about to get better - for free! This weekend's DLC, which already has a Steam page here, adds new skirmish AI which allows up to seven players to take on an AI-driven opponent - meaning you can play out the kind of epic co-op that made the Men…

Feature: It's A Game Of War

Wargame: Of Wargame, Wargames and WarGames

There's a game we've not said much about in the past few months. And, well, that's a shame, because it's a great game, albeit with a forgettable name: Wargame: European Escalation. It's the Cold War sequel to the RPS-beloved RUSE, and Wargame is – perhaps surprisingly - one of the strongest contenders for RTS of the year. And so it was with some urgency that…

Disunion – Wargame: European Escalation’s Multiplayer

A coded message has just reached me from the lofty frontline of a Europe escalated to previously unimagined heights. After running the string of numbers and expletives through the Unigma Machine, which translates marketing language into actual information, this is what I have learned. Wargame: European Escalation's multiplayer modes will permit the following: customisable armies, hundreds of unit selected from hundreds of unit types, battlefields…

Hot As Hell: Wargame European Escalation

If the cold war had turned into a European land war it would have been an impressive kerfuffle, at least according to Wargame: European Escalation from R.U.S.E. creators Eugen Systems. It's probably acceptable to sit back and enjoy the spectacle since none of this is actually happening, and what a spectacle it is. Hundreds of infantrymen rushing down hills, tanks smashing their way through obstacles,…

Bigging It Up: Wargame European Escalation

R.U.S.E. creators Eugen Systems are nudging closer to releasing their next war-themed RTS, the rather literally named Wargame: European Escalation. It's due in the first fourth of next year, and it features tanks and bangs and splodes. It's also rather pleasing on the eye, as is evidenced below with the collecting of five new screenshots. Stare at them at will.

He Rues The Day: Wargame

Roving reporter Dan Griliopoulos has left Alec in Cologne and is heading deeper into Europe, writing up the best of Gamescom as he goes. We're driving through the Black Forest when my thoughts turn to Wargame: European Escalation. Germany's Schwarz Wald might be famous around the world solely as the origin of an outrageously opulent cherry cake – the schwarzwaldkirschetorte – but it's also at…

Wargame: European Escalation Trailer Is Hot

Wargame is what Eugen Systems, the chaps behind RUSE, did next. It's a real-time strategy based on the Cold War, and goodness me, it's looks hot. The scenario is very similar to World In Conflict, albeit a tiny bit more serious about it. Publishers Focus Home explain: "Wargame: European Escalation pits NATO (USA and Western Europe) against the Warsaw Pact (Soviet and Eastern European countries)…
