I was searching for American Civil War games last night on various sites and platforms and came across this one called Grand Tactician: The Civil War 1861-1865.

https://store.steampowered.com/app/654890/Grand_Tactician_The_Civil_War_18611865/

I had not heard of it, but it looks interesting to say the least. There is a game trailer that shows pre-alpha footage on that link. Apparently it is slated to release this summer 2020.

Not sure if this had been shared previously on here, but thought I'd throw it out for others that like ACW games.

Just found this game yesterday actually and was coming here to see if anyone had talked about it! It looks really promising to me. Very excited about it.

They actually have a blog here: http://www.grandtactician.com/thecivilwar/blog/articles/

It includes an entry from a very familiar face to many around this forum, I'd wager...

There's this one also, it will have a civil war component.

Yes, I actually have interacted with the people behind "Grand Tactician: Civil War" just to ask them if I can use some of their Youtube video to make a "Upcoming" video on my own channel.

They immediately responded and said "OK, go ahead, thanks for your interest."

This game looks phenomenal. It has a detailed economic model, it has a grand campaign map that looks like you can seamlessly zoom in to a tactical map. It's like they listed everything they think should be in a game like this and then have been implementing it, like even picking up firearms on the battlefield and using them in the battle.

Two things I did not see that may be crucial, though, are 1. Multiplayer, or at least 2 player possibility. 2. Buying weapon upgrades for units.

It may be they are in there, I just did not see it.

Edit: So, after watching more of the videos, maybe all of them, I have seen a comment from the Grand Tactician people that multiplayer will not be included initially. So, no playing against friends on a dedicated server or by email, at first, but hopefully later.

I've watched all the videos I could find on this title. Philippe Thibault had some glowing praise of its gameplay on their blog:

It's made it's way to the top of my list. Looks like an enticing combination of Scourge of War & Ageod's AACW.

Frankly, I would love a modern rendition of Sid Meier's Gettysburg, and possible other battles included, or perhaps such a system coupled with a dynamic campaign covering the whole Civil War. I know there was the Ultimate General series, but I was pretty unimpressed with it.

It sure looks interesting. In this game, you can choose your side in the Civil War. Nation building is interesting. Charts and maps are cool. Nice character descriptions and stats.
