About This Game

Based on the award winning game engine by the same name, Advanced Tactics: Gold offers a unique and infinitely replayable wargaming experience for any strategy fan. Building off of the enormous success of Advanced Tactics: World War II, the Gold edition gives players a more powerful game editor, much improved random game engine, many new features and abilities, and more. Advanced Tactics: Gold also comes with an updated manual and ever-changing and expanding wiki, a freshly revamped scenario bank, new graphics throughout the game, more troop types, as well as some new scenarios. VR Designs has also been hard at working listening to player feedback, so Advanced Tactics: Gold also comes with many incremental changes and improvements based on community feedback!

But perhaps the most exciting feature in Advanced Tactics: Gold is the near limitless potential for replayability. The strong mod community will be able to create engaging, rich scenarios with the vastly improved editor, and players looking to hop straight into the action can enjoy a much improved random game experience that comes with many new rules, actions, and gameplay mechanics.

Features

  • Versatile Engine - The Advanced Tactics: Gold engine is capable of modeling a wide variety of warfare from modern battles to conflicts in fantasy realms!
  • Improved Scenario Editor - The scenario editor is very powerful and allows the player to edit almost any aspect of the game in great detail.
  • Expanded Random Game Mode - Many new features and game mechanics like more unit types, unit fuel, climates and seasons, and more.
  • Form alliances with other players where you can share recon information and support allies in combat in addition to giving units, hexes, and research to allies as well!
  • Loading and saving scenarios are faster as is the AI when calculating and executing its turn.
  • 3 Even-Steven scenarios for play against a human or AI opponent, 3 Tom Weber scenarios: World at War 39-45 (human-human only), pacific war 41-45 (human-human only), East Front 41-45 on top of the already 25+ existing scenarios packed with Advanced Tactics WWII that have also been included.
  • A large and continually growing scenario bank allows you to find dozens of excellent scenarios ready for download and easy install.
  • Easy scenario import from .zip and export to .zip functions to make scenario sharing easier
  • A combat detail screen for those who like to study exactly how each modifier was used.
  • GUI improvements in the form of extra information on landscapes, location types, peoples and subformation types.
  • Watch the AIs turn to study its moves and attacks as they're made.
  • Rule additions include more intense and grognard-like rules like movement delays in hex caused by combat, less predictable air intercepts and persistent battlestack counters.

Find me another war-game where you play on random-maps against brutal AI. Steep learning curve and patience required, be aware.

Just awesome, best wargame around

Also just want to add that there are a lot of scam/spam negative reviews for some reason. Steam should delete them.

BUT this game is the best wargame I've ever played, and that's saying a lot. It is so flexible and versatile and really not that hard to come to grips with. One you learn the hotkeys, things become a snap.

A good design held back by some needless over-complexity and an interface that requires not only a lot of working out but a lot of "busy work" even once you know it very well. As wargames go this is one of a kind and the flexibility of the scenario design system is a real highlight... but, at full price and given the other options on the market, it's hard to recommend. Word is there's a sequel on the way - hopefully it capitalises on the strengths of this while streamlining the UI and some of the other fiddly elements...

I am so happy that I bought this game. I was searching for something like this for a very long time, a wargame that I can wrap my head around (100+ pages of manual might look daunting for someone not used to tabletop wargames, but trust me, this is on the light side) with a random map generator! That plus many parameters for random generator and many premade scenarios can get you an unlimited replayability and incredible variety: want to play WWII scenario? You can! Want to have almost 4x stile game with exploration and research (minus diplomacy)? You can! Want a huge war with thousands of units or a small cousy war? It is up to you to choose. AI is challenging enough, and that is not granted in contemporary strategy games. And there even is a RPG element where your officers gain levels and feats. It is a well designed and elegant game that will make you brain burn some sugar.

Now if only someone would make a Space Opera scenario to work with AI, that would be the only strategy game I need!

Very smooth game. With two different play styles, either the New Dawn settings with more diversity and more points to control or the original style. Singleplayer or multiplayer. However multiplayer is not server based, you have to send the game file one way or another to the other player. With the level editor there's great replayability. Overall I would say this game is superbly fun and the only downsides is playing with others and waiting for the game to get back to you.
