Focus Home Interactive today released a new video for Wargame: AirLand Battle, the sequel to Wargame: European Escalation developed by Eugen Systems and scheduled for Spring 2013. Just like its predecessor, Wagame: AirLand Battle takes players through a series of conflicts commanding NATO and Warsaw Pact troops between 1975 & 1985 at a turning point of the Cold War. In this episode, war rages in Northern Europe, notably Scandinavia, whose architecture and magnificent landscapes are faithfully recreated in the game.
This trailer gives us a real air show, with a few of the 150 aircraft of the game leading the dance. Cadenced with strafe-runs ,bombings, flaming engines and evasive maneuvers in a dogfight, this trailer offers a small glimpse at the many new strategic opportunities made possible thanks to the integration of air forces in the game. The video also offers a new glimpse at the new maps of Wargame AirLand Battle: more detailed, these showcase for the first time realistically rendered reliefs that will also have a significant impact on gameplay. Connoisseurs will easily recognize some of the aircraft leading the show in the video, such as the fearsome ground-attack aircraft Su-25 "Frogfoot", the multi-role fighter Mirage 2000C, the interceptor Mig-31 "Foxhound", or the A-4 "Skyhawk".
