Back to News Listing A little bit of history with To End All Wars

August 13, 2014 - One hundred years ago today Austro-Hungarian forces cross the River Drina and start their invasion of Serbia. General Oskar Potiorek, Commander of the Austrian forces in the Balkans expected a quick and easy victory, but unexpected resistance from Serbia led to the Battle of Cer that resulted into a serious defeat for the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

Field Marshal Putnik, the battle hardened leader of Serbian forces, launched a counter-attack on August 15th giving the Austro-Hungarian’s a bloody nose. Although both sides sustained heavy casualties, the Austro-Hungarian army, surprised by the tenacious resistance fell back in panic and disarray. General Potiorek was humiliated but it was only the first major encounter on this front and lots of famous battles followed.

However Europe was not the only battlefield and at the same moment in Africa, the Entente was seizing the capital of Togoland from the German Empire. The war was spreading like wildfire!

In To End All Wars, the latest wargame designed by Ageod, you will be able to refight the Great War and to manage the destiny of your alliance across the world. Trenches, aerial warfare, new technologies, and an original diplomatic system have been implemented to model the conflict with a high level of realism.

To End All Wars will be available on August the 26th. The countdown has begun…

"We may employ artifice to deceive a rival, anything against our enemies.” (Cardinal Richelieu – French Statesman)

Back in October, Pike & Shot grabbed the attention of both specialized press and fans of wargames due to its streamlined game mechanics and its rich, yet rarely used historical background. From a strategic point of view, the period presents a brilliant evolution of military units and approaches thanks to the development of new technologies. Integrating firearms and artillery into an army is not an easy task, and only the most flexible commanders will be able to combine them perfectly!

To End All Wars gets its first expansion!

Wednesday, January 28, 2015

So long as the opposing forces are at the outset approximately equal in numbers and moral and there are no flanks to turn, a long struggle for supremacy is inevitable” (General Sir Douglas Haig - British commander)

Praised for its historical accuracy and its capacity to properly cover a huge conflict that involved thousands of men and units, Ageod’s WW1 wargame, To End All Wars, amazed history buffs last summer. However, the huge scale of the Grand Campaign was demanding a lot of time and a deep involvement from the players. So the developers went back to the WW1 battlefields and selected a list of smaller scenarios able to not only offer an original approach of the war, but also to provide true tactical operational challenges to their fans!
