The year was 1975. In his successful escape to the West, Werner Weinhold, a National People's Army's soldier, leaves two East German border guards dead, gunned down while they tried to stop him from defecting. This event aroused tension along the Iron Curtain while East German authorities vainly demanded Bonn for the double murderer to be handed back to them. This is the story of what happened next.
Wargame: European Escalation is a real-time strategy game developed by Eugen Systems and released in 2012, that maintains the two core values of the classic wargame (depth and reflection) while offering a dynamic, real-time gameplay, and an incredibly spectacular and realistic visual experience.
Set in the rarely explored Cold War period of 1975-1985, Wargame: European Escalation explores the battles 'that could have been' if history had taken the wrong turn at some point in the conflict. On both sides of the Iron Curtain that tears Germany in two, the two military alliances, NATO and the Warsaw Pact, are on the verge of war.
