Walker Boys Studio, a Dallas-based game developer founded by two members of the Age of Empires II team, is now working on a real-time strategy game set during the American Civil War. The game, titled Civil War: War Between the States, will let players assume control of the armies of either the North or the South. It will include more than 70 unique units, realistic 3D environments, and a variety of single- and multiplayer options. Players can reenact seven of the most famous battles from the Civil War, or they can choose to play through the war their own way from the very beginning. In addition to basic infantry units, the game will feature cavalry, artillery, and both transport and military ships.
We've posted some screenshots in the gallery above that show off some of the units and environments that will appear in the game. No North American publisher or release date for the game has been announced. For more information, visit the official Civil War Web site.
