Decisive Campaigns: Barbarossa is coming to Steam very soon. This award-winning wargame, considered as one of the best games around by both players and press, can appear very intimidating to newcomers. It’s not really something you would consider as an introductory game for novices.
We have asked YouTuber and avid tactical wargamer Idjester to try and explain the game from the point of view of someone who never got to face a complex operational wargame.
“What I am trying to accomplish with this video series is to give players an idea of the game concepts and understand to core mechanics behind the gameplay, once you understand these important parts you will be able to dive into Decisive Campaigns: Barbarossa very easily”
In the first video you will see the start of the German campaign and the initial key strategic decisions that set the tone of the overall gameplay features. Becoming a master is only a few hexes away.
Decisive Campaigns: Barbarossa is a wargame simulating the German Invasion of the Soviet Russia. Alongside more “traditional” elements (like the map divided in hexes, turn based system, etc.), the innovative “Human” Factor feature adds a new layer of depth to the strategic decisions, making you feel the importance to deal with superiors and subordinates for the achievement of the war objectives!
Coming to Steam on April, 28th
