Slitherine and Every Single Soldier are once again taking the strategy genre from a totally new angle. After the stunning success of Vietnam ’65, the counter-insurgency gaming system create by Johan Nagel is back in a new setting, with a new look and with a monumental list of new features.
As before, you are faced with the task of destroying an ever elusive enemy while striving to win the Hearts & Minds of the local population. You must juggle spending resources to fight the enemy, while at the same time capitalizing on the opportunity to bring civilians to you cause.
You are facing a barrage of obstacles, from IED's to hidden enemies such as local militia that excel at guerrilla warfare as well as Taliban troops that make their way over the mountains from Pakistan to stifle your efforts. You own casualties can severely damage military progress, while eliminating enemy troops and assisting villages and improving their infrastructure can significantly assist you. You will have many tools to achieve success, from the mighty Apache Helicopter, to Special Forces units which can be used to train Afghan National Army Units, or to hunt down the enemy.
Logistics are also a key factor: defending supply convoys without which troops will suffer and will be vulnerable to ambushes and loss of combat effectiveness is the key to attain a solid victory.
Furthermore a tense political situation grips the country. Unpredictable Political Events can significantly alter the outcome of the struggle and Elections will play a vital role in the mission to stabilize Afghanistan.
With 18 different campaign scenarios starting from the initial actions in Afghanistan to the culmination of American involvement there are tens of hours of counter-insurgency warfare to be played. The game also has an extremely customizable Skirmish mode which allows to consistently alter any parameter of the operation the your liking.
Afghanistan ’11 is available on Steam. Check out the product page for more details.
Just a reminder, people: Afghanistan '11, sequel to the highly successful Vietnam '65 is going to be released TOMORROW.
It is a groundbreaking and innovative wargame, bringing counter-insurgency to your screen! In Afghanistan '11 you won't win the war simply by beating enemy forces on the field like in other wargames and strategy games. No, reality is way more complex and deeper, and Afghanistan '11 aims at representing that.
We're going to run a very special Twitch stream the following day, on Friday March 24th on our Twitch channel. We'll show you the game, so show up, watch the stream and you'll get a chance to win a copy of the game!
