About Wargame: European Escalation
Wargame: European Escalation, the new real time strategy game from Eugen
Systems, a specialist of the genre and developer of the critically lauded Act of
War: Direct Action, and more recently R.U.S.E..
Wargame: European Escalation is built around depth and reflection, the key
elements of classic wargames. Above solid foundations, Eugen Systems builds an

rich content, integration of EugenNet and its numerous online services, Wargame:

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
Wargame : European Escalation is available for PC in retail and online stores.
