Wargame: European Escalation presents all 361 units. Today: The Warsaw Pact

Wargame: European Escalation, the explosive real-time strategy game developed for PC by Eugen Systems (R.U.S.E.™, Act of War), lets players control over 360 different units and vehicles faithfully modeled after actual units from 1975 to 1985. Jump behind the wheel and engage in armed conflict between NATO and the Warsaw Pact!

After unveiling NATO units and vehicles last week, players can discover today all of the 180 Warsaw Pact units with seven exclusive screenshots! Players may recognize some famous vehicles like the T-80 battle tanks, the fearsome Mi-28 Havoc gunship helicopter or the gigantic Mil Mi-26, the world’s biggest helicopter (120 feet long!), which will be very useful for resupplying Soviet forces.

Players will be able to select and recruit them to form their army, both in campaign and in multiplayer, thanks to an original and innovative ‘Deck’ system. In Wargame: European Escalation, 4 nations from the Warsaw Pact face NATO forces. Today’s screenshots unveil all 180 Soviet, Czechoslovakian, East-German and Polish units! Wargame’s powerful engine, the IRISZOOM™, animates all these units on incredibly huge maps as big as 60 square miles, which display over 100 million scenery objects. Battles are as spectacular as they are realistic and deeply strategic, while hundreds of vehicles, infantry, and helicopters battle fiercely over the warzone!

About Wargame European Escalation: 

Wargame: European Escalation is a real-time strategy game for PC, that maintains the two core values of the classic RTS (depth and reflection) while offering dynamic, real-time gameplay, and an incredibly spectacular and realistic visual experience.

Set in the rarely explored Cold War period of 1975-1985, Wargame: European Escalation explores the battles 'that could have been' if history had taken the wrong turn at some point in the conflict. On both sides of the Iron Curtain that tears Germany in two, the two military alliances, NATO and the Warsaw Pact, are on the verge of war. The zeal of a patrol close to the East-german border eventually leads to a firefight with their enemy brothers.Soon the local skirmish pushes the already-tense relationship between NATO and the Warsaw Pact over the edge into all-out war.

Both superpowers have enough nuclear firepower at their disposal to annihilate all life on the planet, but this is the very last resort; if an open conflict is to happen, it would take the form of conventional warfare in Germany, and throughout Europe.

The world is about to fall into the feared 3rd World War. Wargame: European Escalation plunges you into the midst of this conflict, through a big and explosive military campaign!
