The remarkable sequence of events that inexorably led to the ‘Great War’ is written in our history books and pictured in our movies. Now a turn-based strategy game captures this time of war with unprecedented realism and accuracy.

For the first time an iPad game allows players to enjoy an epic hex based campaign on a tablet. Slitherine’s revolutionary play by e-mail system also brings a whole new level of excitement in Multiplayer battles.

Commander: The Great War will hit the iPad App Store on Friday 25th of July! We are very much looking forward to release, since this will be the first time that a wargame of this scale will be available on a tablet device!

Developed by the Lordz Games Studio, Commander will bring the exact same gameplay as the successful PC version, while allowing for comfortable and intuitive touch controls. The game will also make use of the proven PBEM++ technology to allow for cross-platform multiplayer, making it easier than ever to find a multiplayer opponent.
