“Each vantage point provides its own unique mechanics with which to gain the advantage over the opposition, whether attacking or defending. Players must consider strategy at every level, carefully allocating resources and choosing which locations to fortify in a war won by inches,” reads a line from the game’s description.
Players will utilize a number of tactics to get the upper hand, including poisonous gas and tanks.
“Battles take place in a living, persistent world, with existing battlefields holding the scars of previous battles and deteriorating as players revisit them, while changing weather conditions will provide additional challenges for each unit,” the game’s description says.
Frank Klepacki, known for his work on the Command & Conquer franchise, will compose the music for The Great War: Western Front.
