About Advanced Tactics: Gold

Based on the award winning game engine by the same name,  Advanced Tactics: Gold offers a unique and infinitely replayable wargaming experience for any strategy fan. Building off of the enormous success of  Advanced Tactics: World War II, the  Gold edition gives players a more powerful game editor, much improved random game engine, many new features and abilities, and more.  Advanced Tactics: Gold also comes with an updated manual and ever-changing and expanding wiki, a freshly revamped scenario bank, new graphics throughout the game, more troop types, as well as some new scenarios. VR Designs has also been hard at working listening to player feedback, so  Advanced Tactics: Gold also comes with many incremental changes and improvements based on community feedback!
