Commander: The Great War is the third in a series of high level turn based strategy games. Developed by The Lordz Games Studio, it features a brand new engine and countless new features, while staying faithful to the original game’s design philosophy. The game spans the First World War, allowing players to control the Central Powers or the Entente Allies through the entire conflict.
At the heart of the conflict, when men fighting for every inch of land, only visionary leaders could make the choices that would lead their troops to victory. The remarkable sequence of events that inexorably led to the ‘Great War’ and the names of these leaders are written in our history books and pictured in our movies. Now a turn-based strategy game captures this time of war with unprecedented realism and accuracy.
Commander: The Great War is the latest release in the popular Commander series to bring the thrill, excitement and mind-breaking decision making of these difficult times to life.
A completely new engine runs faster and allows players to enjoy the epic hex based campaign map in full wide screen. Slitherine’s revolutionary play by e-mail system will also bring a whole new level of excitement in Multiplayer battles.
