Second Free DLC Released for Wargame: European Escalation

Posted on July 5, 2012 by Daniel Shannon

Eugen Systems released additional free downloadable content for Wargame: European Escalation today. The “Conquest” DLC adds a new mode (which also goes by the moniker “conquest”). This mode, playable against the AI or other people, is based around seizing and maintaining control of victory sectors on the map rather than annihilating the enemy’s forces. It also comes with 7 new maps (bringing the total number of maps to around 27). To commemorate the new DLC, Wargame is half off on Steam from now until the 9th of July.

Wargame: European Escalation Giveaway

International Workers’ Day may have come and gone, but its spirit still lingers here at Broken Joysticks. I, for one, associate the first of May with massive Soviet military Parades. What a sight it must have been to behold the crimson banners fluttering as T-80 tanks rumbled past. In honor of the “good old days,” we’re giving out copies of Wargame: European Escalation.

In case you didn’t know, Wargame: European Escalation is an alternate history game where the Cold War goes “Hot.” I don’t mean hot in the nuclear holocaust sense. Rather, the forces of NATO and the Warsaw Pact battle it out conventionally over a decidedly non irradiated Europe. You can see how to get your hands on a copy (and watch footage from a Soviet May Day Parade)  after the jump.

Free DLC released for Wargame: European Escalation

Posted on April 12, 2012 by Daniel Shannon

Wargame: European Escalation, the “Cold War goes Hot” themed RTS from Eugen Systems, has just received its first downloadable content pack. The free “New Battlefields” DLC adds skirmish AI, a feature that was sorely missed in the original game by fans of “comp stomping.” Other features include seven additional maps and a “flare” system that will allow players to place a message on the tactical map. This could be useful in multiplayer if you are, say, being overrun by dozens of T-72s.
