AVALON DIGITAL’S SGS: WINTER WAR TO BE RELEASED ON STEAM EARLY ACCESS ON APRIL 28, 2020
Strategy games developer and publisher Avalon Digital announces its strategy game focusing on the “Winter War” 1939-1940 between the USSR and Finland will be released on Steam Early Access and on the Avalon Digital website on 28 April 2020.
Grenoble, 24 April 2020 – Indie developer and publisher Avalon Digital is excited to announce today the upcoming release of SGS: Winter War, its new historical strategy game, based on a brand new fast-paced, card-driven game engine.
SGS: Winter War is a brand new strategy game focusing on the conflict between the USSR and Finland in 1939. In SGS: Winter War, players must play either the USSR trying to achieve their goals in the Finnish peninsula or the Fins, defending their territory against the soviet expansion during a long winter where temperature ranged as low as -43oc (-43oF).
Winter War is the recreation of the war that opposed Finland and the Soviet Union between November 1939 and March 1940
The game lasts 16 turns, each representing one week between December 1939 and March 1940. One player represents the tiny Republic of Finland, the other has the Soviet Union land and air forces.
The Soviets have numerous but poorly led and badly organized forces at the start of the game, but their reinforcements are impressive.
The Finnish must hold desperately against the initial onslaught and vastly superior strength of their enemy, thanks to their superior quality and ideal defensive positions, hoping to gain enough time when threats of Allied Intervention discourages the Russian bear.
Be careful however of the potential weakness in number on the Finns side, as well as the uncertainty of Stalin’s resolve on the other…
The game’s event cards allow full replay ability thanks to the numerous various situations that they create on the diplomatic, military, political or economical fields.
- A Card-driven game in a beautiful strategy landscape featuring brand new maps effects
- An in-depth experience of a fascinating and not well-known conflict at the outset of WWII
- Mobilize the asymmetric resources of both armies and the peculiarities of the terrain during a tough winter to achieve your goals
