152nd Commemoration of the Battle of Gettysburg 1-3 July 1863


"Hancock at Gettysburg" by Thure de Thulstrup, showing Pickett's Charge. Restoration by Adam Cuerden.

After his major success at Chancellorsville in Virginia in May 1863, Gen. Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia advanced to Northern soil for a second time. His second and final attempt to invade the North was stopped by Maj. Gen. George Meade's Army of the Potomac near the small town of Gettysburg. About 55,000 soldiers were the casualties for both sides in an epic 3 day confrontation. It was the largest amount of losses in a single battle for the entire war.

The battle of Gettysburg is considered by most historians the “Turning point” of the American Civil War. It was Lee’s first major defeat and inflicted serious casualties on the Army of Northern Virginia that caused its gradual disintegration. It was one of the reasons why Vicksburg surrendered one day later, splitting the Confederacy and preventing valuable supplies to reach the eastern theater of the war.

Today is one of the most important dates in the history of the American Civil War and we pay our respects to the fallen heroes who gave their lives in the Battle of Gettysburg.

게임에 대해

Ultimate General: Gettysburg is a Tactical Battle Simulator that allows you to lead thousands of soldiers in the famous Battle of Gettysburg as commander of either the Union or Confederate army. The game features the most accurately created map, complex morale, innovative control mechanics and smart AI. You have the freedom to use different strategies while the battle progresses. Your decisions and military performance play a crucial role in the result. Lead your army and win the Battle of Gettysburg!

It has been voted as Best Strategy Game of 2014 by PCGamesN.

Main Features


Smart AI Commanders
Ultimate General: Gettysburg does not use “AI gameplay cheats” because it does not need them. The game’s difficulty is accomplished only by nine distinctive AI personalities, each with their own advantages and special skills. AI Commanders are able to evaluate and gain tactical superiority in real time, reacting according to their different commanding skills, aggressively or defensively, heroically or cunningly and resemble different, competent human players.

Each one of the AI generals is a formidable, non-scripted opponent who can actively try to flank you, secure strategic locations with artillery, keep reserves and reinforce areas that it attacks or defends. The AI will try to win the battle with tactics that fit to its personality. For example a defensive opponent may not attack ferociously in the first engagement and progressively advance its forces in the next battles.

What players say: “Fantastic AI - don't know what kind of brain you put in this game but it works”

Multi-Day Dynamic Battle
On the morning of July 1st 1863, the two armies meet near Gettysburg. Reinforcements arrive from historically accurate directions as the battle progresses, however, random events, delays and tactical differences are always a possibility that can change the results of each engagement compared to history.

Can you re-enact Pickett’s Charge? What if Lee attacked the center of the Union Army early in the morning of July 2nd of 1863 instead of attempting to flank the extreme left in the afternoon? What would happen if Meade counter-attacked on July 4th 1863? These questions and more can be answered within the game engine of Ultimate General: Gettysburg.

The battle is dynamically fought in time phases and can last up to 4 days. Each day can be separated by up to 3 time phases and the armies’ condition and positioning on the map are saved.

According to battle events, you have the possibility to take decisions that can change the tide of the battle based on your prior tactical prowess. For example, when leading the Confederates, on the morning of July 2nd, you can choose to attack at Cemetery Hill and not make a delayed flanking maneuver at Peach Orchard… if you have managed to take Seminary Ridge the previous day! You can even choose to defend and wait for your AI opponent to take the initiative between days. These choices greatly increase the number of possible battle outcomes and challenges.

What players say:“9 different AI profiles, multiple outcomes, multiple strategies, casualties carry over. This game is a different experience every time. Well worth it, can't wait for the next one.”

Easy Controls & Unit Self-Awareness
Drag simple movement arrows to command large forces easily. Units do not need your micromanagement because they are able to act on their own initiative and re-align, switch targets, withdraw and form battle lines without player input. Consequently, you are able to give generic commands to your units and can rely on them to fight efficiently without the need for “babysitting”.

What players say: “Innovative movement system - this is by far an awesome system they developed. It’s not only insanely easy to learn, but also incredibly innovative”

Detailed Map of Gettysburg
Utilizing satellite images and historical maps, every major location, house, ridge and hill are depicted as accurately as possible within the game’s unique art style. If you are an American Civil War enthusiast, you will be especially happy to notice the amount of precision and information that the map provides. Not only will you be able to better understand the historical layout of the map, you will also be able to make use of each location and landmark in battle, thanks to the simulation of cover, concealment, terrain and high ground in the game.

What players say: “Incredible Gorgeous Map - I had to capitalize that because this map is by far one of the best maps of Gettysburg I have ever seen either in a game or even in books”

Advanced Line of Sight
Elevation and obstructions affect unit visibility realistically. Units may make use of concealment and cover to survive artillery barrages, stage ambushes and more, but beware – the AI will attempt to do the same to you. The units enter or exit the Fog of War gradually with a fade in/out effect that helps you perceive their hiding and course seamlessly.

What players say: “The way Game Labs implemented Line of Sight in this game should be held as an example to other developers to do the same”

Numerous Tactical Factors
In Ultimate General: Gettysburg, you will realize that army units are not “machines” that blindly follow orders, but they need to conserve strength and courage for decisive battle actions. Every basic tactical element that is expected for a strategy game is incorporated into gameplay. Most importantly, morale is affected by many factors including flank or rear attacks, casualties, volley shocks, artillery fire and fatigue.

What players say: “... positioning of units matters. You really bring the struggles of 19th century warfare to life here”

Historically Accurate Forces and Leaders
Ultimate General: Gettysburg includes the full order of battle for the Union Army of the Potomac and the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia. Unit sizes range from the small artillery batteries to vast infantry brigades with cavalry and skirmishers in between.
All brigades have troop numbers and differing competencies based on historical facts. Additionally, all artillery battery numbers and types are correctly simulated. Lastly, major generals and officers actively participate in the battlefield to organize and support the armies and appear in after action battle reports to help you monitor battle progress.

What players say: “Immersive American Civil War feel: sounds, portraits and general historical authentic really make this one of the most immersive historical games I have played, and I am a total history buff”

Furthermore, every inch of the map has a strategic role. Sloping, terrain type and obstructions affect unit movement realistically. Elevations, ridges and hills provide excellent firing positions and give increased sight, morale and accuracy to troops stationed there.
By placing your units close to each other, they become more resilient to charges and flank attacks but get more vulnerable to projectile fire. Thus, forcing your enemy to keep his lines dense while you shell him with artillery can be a valid tactic. As the condition of your units changes dynamically during the battle, the effectiveness of your whole army is affected. For example, units fire more coordinated volleys when they have high morale and have more discipline and tight formations.

These and many more deep gameplay mechanics are packed into a simple and intuitive GUI that aims to ease the game experience for the player without overwhelming with complex statistics.

Evolving Multiplayer Experience
The game currently offers 18 maps for 1vs1 matches and is continuously improved according to user feedback.

What players say: “Well, actually, the AI in this game is about the best ever seen (except for chess), and there is a working multiplayer with about always at least one battle going.”

Ultimate General: Gettysburg is developed by Game Labs and designed by Nick Thomadis, known for his successful and popular “DarthMod” series.

역사적 전투를 아기자기한 스타일의 게임으로! 고지를 향해 돌격!

시나리오마다 주어진 유닛을 가지고 전투를 벌이게되는 익숙한 RTS게임 입니다. 플레이어는 내전시기 미국의 남군(Confederates / Confederate States)과 북군(Union / United States)을 선택하여 7월 1일~4일까지의 전투를 치르게 됩니다.

캠페인의 시작에서 AI의 난이도를 겸해서 성향을 고를 수 있으며 이를 통해 실제로 게임에서 AI의 행동양상이 변합니다. AI는 특별히 이상한 행동을 하지 않고 합리적으로 행동하여 거슬리지 않습니다.

캠페인 도중 각 미션들은 서로 유기적으로 연결되어 첫 미션 후 전략을 선택하는 것과 이전 미션의 결과에 따라 다른 시나리오가 주어집니다. 미션을 패배해도 게임이 끝나지 않고 상황에 맞는 다음 미션이 주어지며 덕분에 원하는 방법으로 사흘간의 전투를 이끌어나갈 수 있습니다. 각 날짜 별 캠페인을 한번 끝내게 되면 다른 시나리오가 언락 되어 커스텀 배틀에서 플레이해 볼 수 있습니다. 각 미션 별로 짧은 시간이 주어져서 캠페인을 한번 마무리하는 데에는 오래 걸리지 않지만 다양한 다른 시나리오를 플레이 해볼 수 있는 점을 감안하면 전체를 플레이 해보는 데는 꽤 긴 시간을 필요로 할 수 있습니다.

맵은 박물관등의 미니어쳐 지형처럼 구성되어있고 3D로 구현되어있지는 않지만 충실하게 전장의 고저차와 수목 등이 구현되어 시야와 이동, 대포의 사격 각도에 영향을 줍니다. 전략 및 전술적 이유로 당시 전투가 고지점령이 중요하기 때문에 주요 고지와 능선에는 중요도에 따라 승리 점수가 주어지고 이를 차지하여 미션 결과에 영향을 끼치게 됩니다. 지형의 고저 여부는 그림자 및 등고선 표시(기본 단축키 'M')로 구분할 수 있습니다.

각 유닛은 사기(Morale)와 상태(Condition) 게이지를 지니고 있고 지형과 태세에 따라 엄폐(Cover)보너스를 얻고 지속적인 공격이 아닌 사격을 하고 나면 장전(Reload)게이지가 차오를 때까지 공백이 생기는 등 당시의 전투를 세밀하고 흥미롭게 구현해 두었습니다. 각 부대의 지휘관들을 곁에 두어 사기에 보너스를 부여하고 사기가 낮은 부대는 퇴각하고 상태가 낮아지게 되면 후방으로 물러납니다. 때문에 여분의 병력을 사기가 낮은 부대와 교체하고 끊임없이 전선의 공백을 매워가며 상대를 밀어내고 화력을 집중하는 전술이 필요합니다.

터치 친화성 : 중간
가상 버튼 프로그램 or 스타일러스 필수
대부분의 조작을 마우스와 클릭만으로 해결 할 수 있습니다만 맵을 이동하는 과정에서 키보드 혹은 화면 모서리 스크롤을 사용하며 임의의 가상 버튼을 사용하지 않으면 조작이 불편합니다.

장점
낮은 시스템 요구사항, 아기자기하고 상세한 그래픽, 유기적인 캠페인 미션들의 연결, 미션 별 다양한 시나리오, 세밀한 부대 조작, 시대배경에 걸맞는 전술 구사, 다양하고 독특한 난이도, 군더더기 없는 효과음과 배경음악

단점
단조로운 UI, 아쉬운 볼륨(게티즈버그 전투만을 다루기 때문에), 게임내에서 각 유닛의 상태를 전체적으로 볼 수 있는 방법이 없음(일일이 클릭해서만 확인 가능)

주의
특색이 뚜렷한 전략게임이므로 취향에 흥미도가 많이 좌우됩니다. 게임은 훌륭하지만 가볍게 잠깐 플레이 하기에는 다소 복잡하고 역사적 사건을 다루는 만큼 시대적 배경에 대한 최소한의 이해가 필요할 수 있습니다.

라인 배틀 매니아나 역덕후에게 있어서 매우 매력적인 게임임은 분명하다...
하지만 슬프게도 난 이 게임에 대해 리뷰를 할 수 없다.... 왜냐면 게임 진행이 안되니까!!!

Nvidia 옵티머스가 적용된 노트북 제품군에서는 게임 시작 후 10분 간 화면이 깜빡거리다가 게임이 정지하는 문제가 있다.
아니면 아예 지포스 GT 650M이랑은 안맞는 것일지도 모른다. 나 말고도 이런 문제를 가진 유저들이 몇몇 존재하고, 이 점에 대헤 문의를 넣은지 6개월이 지났지만 제작사 쪽에서는 전혀, 저어어어어언~혀 해결할 의지도 없고. 답변 한마디 안 해준다.

게이밍 노트북 사용자는 주의할 것.

Is Steam going to remove this game due to its depiction of the historically accurate Confederate battle flag? People in this country are losing their minds blaming symbols and inanimate objects everytime something bad happens...

This game rocks! btw.

I bought it because the devs had the guts to stand up politely but firmly to Apple's fascism. I bought it from Steam instead of the gimmicky-other-game site because Steam had the guts to feature it in a tasteful way on their store page. Hope it's good so I can buy another copy for a friend.

Plays best while listening to the Dukes of Hazzard theme song.
