Description

World War I is a real-time strategy, based on historical events of 1914-1918. The player is to take command of troops of 3 sides: Russia, Germany and the Entente and prove his supremacy in over 30 missions grouped in 3 campaigns and a one additional chapter - Intervention in the revolutionary Russia.

The game utilizes Enigma engine, a technology developed by Nival Interactive and used firstly in Blitzkrieg. Thus, both games share many aspects, like 3D terrain rendering, characteristic isometric view, controls and play style.

Just like in Blitzkrieg, the economical aspects are completely omitted, putting all focus on the battle. Gamers can command a variety of units including infantry, cavalry, artillery and even the air-power.

World War I Windows This time we play as Entente. Now we're using long range artillery to destroy a wooden bridge, so that the Germans will have to take the other way. Way of pain.
World War I Windows Errr, sorry guys, I told you to stand further from the barrage area! Anyway the bridge is not our trouble any more.
