Focus Interactive and Eugen Systems have announced Wargame: Red Dragon, the follow-up to one of Tom Chick’s top ten games of 2013. The new real-time strategy game will let players win hearts and minds via conventional forces from the 70’s, 80’s, and early 90’s. Naval platforms will provide new ways to spread your ideology, and five new nations will fill out the already extensive Wargame roster of forces. Instead of the one large strategic campaign map that Wargame: AirLand Battle had, Eugen plans to have a dozen campaigns covering the conflicts in central Asia.
“Bear vs. Dragon” will, chronologically, be the first campaign. As one can easily imagine, this campaign will pitch China against the USSR in a limited border war in 1979, when the former’s intervention in Vietnam triggers the latter’s reaction.
Based on Eugen Systems’ track record with the Wargame series, I expect Wargame: Red Dragon to have outstanding support and plenty of Cold War action.
