The latest installment of Eugen Systems’ real-time tactics Wargame franchise, Wargame: Red Dragon, is up for grabs on the Epic Games Store until March 11. This is a follow up to Wargame: AirLand Battle and Wargame: European Escalation that maintains its predecessors’ Cold War setting but ups the stakes by introducing new nations such as China, Japan, North Korea, and South Korea. Wargame: Red Dragon also features a new dynamic campaign system and extensive multiplayer mode that supports up to 20 players.
“The Wargame series returns to duty, larger, richer and more spectacular than ever before,” a game description reads. “In Wargame Red Dragon, you are engaged in a large-scale conflict where Western forces clash against the Communist bloc.”
“You command the military resources of all 17 nations involved, assembling your fighting force from a phenomenal selection of 1,450 units that have been meticulously reproduced from their source! Command tanks, planes, helicopters, new warships and amphibious units in intense battles of unequaled tactical depth. Master the relief of varied, ultra realistic battlefields, dominate the new maritime areas and rewrite history in a conflict that has been directed and designed in stunning detail by development studio Eugen Systems.”
Wargame: Red Dragon’s add-ons include a handful of nation packs that allow players to expand beyond the units that are available in the base game. These include the Reds pack, which unlocks Yugoslavia and Finland units, as well as packs for Israel and Netherlands forces. There’s also a Second Korean War DLC that brings a new solo campaign to the game.
