Epsom, UK, July 25, 2014.

Acclaimed by the press – “ Can’t recall enjoying a grand-strategic WWI title more” (Rock Paper Shotgun), “ Accessible and well-documented, without sacrificing challenge or strategy” (Tacticular Cancer) – and rewarded by the community with the Digital Strategic Game of the Year 2012 title attributed by the Grogheads readers – Commander: The Great War is finally reaching new platforms with its releases on both the App Store and Steam.

In the iPad version of the game you will find all the elements that contributed to the success of the PC version, giving you a unique wargaming experience on your tablet. Creating such a complex wargame on a tablet device was a huge challenge and The Lordz Games Studio has been optimizing this gem for months so as not to sacrifice any feature from the game on PC. The huge campaign map, 5 grand campaigns, unit customization, research and technology panels, realistic combat model, cross platform multiplayer and gameplay adapted to the touchscreen platform turns Commander: The Great War into the deepest World War I simulation on iPad.

And we should not forget our PC community! We are glad to announce that the game is released on Steam as well. Faithful to our habits, we are also going to offer a free Steam key to anyone who has a copy of the PC game, wherever they bought it from, once the game is available on this digital platform! All they have to do is register their serial here and they will be able to redeem a free key to add the game to their Steam library!

Get more information on Commander: The Great War from its official Steam and iPad pages.
