Have you ever wanted to beat the crap out of your friends using Civil War-era weapons? Have you ever thought to yourself, 'man I wish I could pummel the south with some mean tactics and FPS skills'? Well, if you have then you'll probably like Gettysburg: Armored Warfare.
Paradox Interactive announced today that a new free-to-play, PVP MMO is on the way that pits the North versus the South with a dash of futuristic weapons in Gettysburg: Armored Warfare.
Tom Söderlund, Project Lead for Paradox Connect commented in the press release, saying...
"History is a great setting for any game as it adds familiarity and an understanding of the motivations behind the opposing forces,” ... “Throw in tanks from 200 years in the future as well as other modern weapons and you have a really interesting twist on history. That’s what we’re bringing with Gettysburg: Armored Warfare when it launches later this year.”
I really hope they still have the weapons from that era because the Western revolvers and rifles were some of the sexiest weapons ever made but we rarely get to use them in games. And while Paradox is at it, they may as well do a game about the Revolutionary War where gamers will spend a minute and a half reloading after a single shot.
A complete list of the game's features can be viewed below. The persistent statistics and 32 vs 32 sounds awfully fun. You can learn more by visiting the Official Website.
