Focus has sent word that Eugen Systems’ Wargame: European Escalation has been delayed. The upcoming real-time strategy title will now be shipping out for the PC in the first quarter of 2012. The R.U.S.E. and Act of War developer will be using the additional time to give the game a bit more polish.
Focus also included five new shots for your viewing pleasure.
Set in the rarely explored period of 1975-1985, Wargame: European Escalation pits NATO (USA and Western Europe) against the Warsaw Pact (Soviet and Eastern European countries) in battles that explore “what could have been.” The specter of nuclear warfare loomed large over the real Cold War, but this catastrophic outcome was the ultimate last resort as everyone knew that the first one to start nuclear hostilities would end up wiped out just the same. Large, armored offensives through Europe would certainly have been the core of this hypothetical war; and this is what the game’s explosive campaign takes you through!
