Ultimate General: Civil War is fully released!
We are proud to announce that Ultimate General: Civil War is finally fully released! Due to your invaluable help during the Early Access phase, we believe we have significantly improved the game to a level that will please all strategy fans. At this important moment, let’s describe briefly what Ultimate General: Civil War offers.
Ultimate General: Civil War allows you to relive the American Civil War 1861-1865 as either a Union or Confederate General in a long and exciting campaign.
You will gradually progress through key battles of the American Civil War and expand your forces from a small division to a grand army of multiple Corps. Utilizing a wide range of choices, you may choose the best armament and officers for your units and organize your army into Corps, Divisions and Brigades with extreme detail.
Your army design pays-off in the battlefield where you command your units on beautiful, hand-drawn maps and test your tactical skills vs a clever AI opponent. The battles can become enormous and the armies huge, involving hundreds of thousands of soldiers! Your final goal is to capture Washington for the Confederates or Richmond for the Union.
The campaign mode is branched around 14 grand battles and 24 smaller battles for each side. All together they sum up to 76 different engagements for both Union and Confederate players making up a campaign that may last hundreds of hours, considering that the epic multi-day battles can endure several play hours.
Besides the campaign, you can fight the standalone historical battles which are the following:
1st Battle of Bull Run
Battle of Shiloh
Battle of Gaines’ Mill
Battle of Malvern Hill
2nd Battle of Bull Run
Battle of Antietam
Battle of Fredericksburg
Battle of Stones River
Battle of Chancellorsville
Battle of Gettysburg
Battle of Chickamauga
Battle of Cold Harbor
The historical battles are accurately portraying the historical facts and can be a handy learning tool for everyone interested in the American Civil War. Finally, there are also several exciting Custom Battles and their number is going to be enriched in future patches.
We thank again everyone who has supported Ultimate General: Civil War and wish now that is completed, it is going to be one of the best war games you have ever played!
