Elgin, Scotland 5th August 2014  -  Civil War: 1863 , the hex-based strategy game by  Hunted Cow Studios  and  HexWar Ltd , has arrived on the  Mac App Store , priced at $6.99/£4.99/€5.99.

The Mac Version of the game includes all previously released content from the iOS version, which is currently rated at 5 stars on the App Store, alongside several new features to improve the gameplay experience.

Civil War: 1863 includes 10 campaigns, with a total of 75 missions. The first campaign is a tutorial, which teaches players the basic and advanced concepts they will need to secure victory.  All missions in the game can be played from either the Union or Confederate side, with the exception of the tutorial.

The Mac version of the game also features iCloud saves, which means missions can be started on the Mac, then loaded later in the iOS version of the game to enable you to finish your battles on the move. The Mac version also includes a map zoom function, which allows players to move between a close-up view of the action or a birds-eye view of the battlefield. 

Civil War: 1863 is the prequel to recently released Civil War: 1864, and features many of the same improvements. Detailed Combat Analysis allows players to better assess the battlefield, while Flank Attacks and Strategic Movement give them the ability to respond to enemy threats dynamically.
