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 through!
Lead on huge maps the most intense of large-scale battles, involving hundreds of units ranging from armored tanks, helicopters, infantry, logistic vehicles, etc…
In-depth, realistic strategy taking into account many parameters, such as ammunition, fuel, supply lines…
A modern, realistic setting, taking you through an explosive solo campaign revisiting the Cold War as it could have been if things had heated up.
A big multiplayer mode, served by the numerous EugenNet services integrated in the game.
