It says something about Gettysburg: Armored Warfare that while I'll probably never play it myself, I can get enjoyment from the game simply knowing that such a thing exists. This alternate-reality take on the Civil War is full of zeppelins and dudes with miniguns; I'd be dead on the inside if that didn't make me happy.
The premise is set against a real-time strategy backdrop in which you can jump down to the troop level for third-person shooter gameplay. Knowing this and that servers handle up to 64 players and 1,000 controllable units has me eager to see highlights on YouTube.
Paradox says Gettysburg will be available on Steam and elsewhere for PCs on March 27. There's also a website to check out for the time being.
