Wargame: Red Dragon teaser video explodes onto the internet

Wargame: Red Dragon teaser video explodes onto the internet

Hot off the heels of us awarding it the coveted “Best Strategy Series Everybody Always Forgets About” in our Alternative Awards, the Wargame series has blasted into 2014 with a teaser trailer for the upcoming Wargame: Red Dragon.

“Teaser trailer” is actually doing it a bit of a disservice, though. Most teaser trailers just show a 3D logo spinning slowly into view, because everybody loves logos. This trailer? This trailer shows vehicles and missiles and explosions and artillery. It’s basically a minute of (very structured) in-game footage. It’s also probably the prettiest hardcore strategy game I’ve seen thus far, so it’s maybe worth a look for that alone.

Set between 1975 and 1991, Wargame: Red Dragon has the NATO and Pact armies battling it out in central Asia. New factions, new units, and new combat vehicles bring the total number of units up to a whopping 1,300. Naval and amphibious units! China and North Korea! 20-player multiplayer! Other things that will probably be bullet points on the back of the metaphorical box!

No idea when Wargame: Red Dragon is due out, but I’ll take a guess at “later in 2014.” Have a peek at the teaser vid below.

    Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.

      Looks impressive for an RTS, graphically too. Hopefully to see more gameplay soon to see how it plays.
