Download Gettysburg: Armored Warfare

Gettysburg: Armored Warfare can get you into an experience with tempered expectations. The early screenshots look promising. It doesn't crash! Imagine a world where modern weapons travel back in time to the era of American Civil War. The story may seem a bit absurd but hardcore action game lovers wouldn't mind. The game is set in a world where mounted cavalry runs alongside resistant personnel carriers and cannons fire at fast moving tanks. Radioactive Software’s imaginative pairing of revolutionary weaponry and historical 1860s era warfare is enough to make it an exciting prospect to explore.

Gettysburg: Armored Warfare combines real time strategy and third person shooting. It lets you command units across massive maps and assume direct control of things. The year reads 2065 when worsening relations among various states in the Union, tantamount to civil unrest, which in turn threatens to overthrow the government. Roughly, around the same time, a Hadron Collider accident creates a temporary rift in the dimension, allowing a general to return to the 1860s with modern day technology. This is where you get into the picture.

You can hop into a match or a single player practice mode. Assuming direct control and playing Gettysburg: Armored Warfare like a third- person shooter is largely functional. Death match mode, the more enjoyable and functional of the two available play options, changes things up by ditching the RTS game feel and focusing on the third person aspect in bigger matches for up to 64 players. In Gettysburg: Armored Warfare, the focus is on gameplay rather than making the graphics as shiny as possible. This is what helps the game leave its mark.
