American Civil War (PC)Published by Ascaron
Take the role of military and political leadership, and lead your troops (armies and fleets) to victory, in the midst of some of the toughest operations during those five years of wild campaigning throughout a divided nation.
Most of the individual years of campaign between 1861 and 1865 are playable via the game scenarios. Advanced scenarios will allow the recreation of some yearly and/or theatrical campaigns, and there will also be, of course, the complete Grand Campaign covering the whole war.
Game developer Philippe Thibaut, a recognized designer in the Grand Strategy field, has a proven track record in the genre with such titles as Great Invasions, Birth of America, War Wound, Europa Universalis and Pax Romana in his portfolio. Graphical art in American Civil War is based on historical models and paintings by the famous Birth of America team Robin Pirez and Sandra Duval, and a dedicated and enthusiastic group of historical experts of the Civil War era have assisted in the development of the game.
