Guns of August Screens

Bitter trench warfare never looked so good
Matrix Games and Adanac Command Studies have released a batch of screenshots from Guns of August, illustrating their upcoming WWI turn-based strategy game. Guns of August puts players in command of waging World War I at a grand strategic scale from Paris to Baghdad. The entire Western, Eastern, Italian and Balkan fronts are included as are the three fronts of the Ottoman Empire. Gamers will get to try their hand at production, combat, diplomacy, research, the horrors of the trenches, and more. Use land units like infantry corps complete with separate artillery units for precisely directing barrages on the enemy’s line. As time goes on, players must deal with changing combat situations like the introduction of Stossstruppen and even mighty tanks charging through lines to break through the stalemate.
