When it rains, it pours. Today saw the release of Baldur’s Gate, and now next week we’ll see Battle of the Bulge arrive for iPad – on 13 December at 15:00 Eastern Time to be precise, according to Shenandoah Studio’s Battle of the Bulge Twitter account.
PT readers who have been in the beta test have made noises that suggest Shenandoah’s WWII operational-level wargame is going to set a new high water mark. If BotB is everything the devs have promised, it will be one of the most memorable games of the year. Wargames have been so stagnant for so long, a fresh design like this is just what the genre needs.
