On savait qu’une suite d’Ageod American Civil War était en chantier depuis plusieurs mois, voici que le groupe Slitherine officialise en quelque sorte le projet en dévoilant ses principales caractéristiques, et de premières illustrations des unités ou des chefs militaires. Malheureusement pas encore de screenshots de la carte, qui couvrira l’ensemble des USA depuis la côte Est jusqu’aux montagnes Rocheuses dans l’Ouest. Soit une très vaste étendue découpée en pas moins de 3 000 régions. En attendant d’en découvrir un peu plus, probablement ces prochains mois, sachez qu’il est d’ores et déjà possible de s’inscrire pour participer à la phase de bêta-test (par ici).
Pour d’autres précisions sur Civil War II, c’est ainsi que sera nommé le jeu et non AACW II, voyez le communiqué ci-dessous ainsi que cette page chez Matrix, où vous trouverez donc aussi quelques images en guise d’avant-goût.
Grenoble, France, June 17, 2013 – Ageod (www.ageod.com) is proud to announce the upcoming release of this grand strategy game set during the bloody battles of the American civil war: Civil War II.
After the great success of American Civil War – The Blue and the Gray, Ageod has built on its success with many more features and content in this sequel to the classic game of the genre. The game covers the entire USA, from the Eastern seaboard to the Rockies, from 1861 to 1865. It also stretches to Mexico and the Northern Caribbean. There are 5 main scenarios from the battle of Shiloh all the way up to the Grand Campaign.
The map is divided into more than 3,000 regions, which contain a variety of terrain, climates and civil development level. There are over 400 historical leaders with historically characteristic strengths and weaknesses. The model covers features such as Weather, Attrition, Supply, Fog of War and more!
“While The Blue and the Gray was already accepted by the community as one of the best games set during the American Civil War, we felt that we could do even more and with the improvements we’ve made in our AGE engine, we are able to provide a smoother and richer version of the game” says Philippe Thibaut, Director of Ageod. “The engine has evolved and so will the game, with more features, better and faster UI and much more. Civil War II is going to be a must-have for anyone interested in the period”.
The 150th anniversary of this historical event fits perfectly with the release of this game, a perfect tribute in commemoration of those men who fought for their beliefs.
We are now recruiting Beta testers for this game! You can sign up here.
