Tactical planning, strategic thinking, roguelike dynamics and full inspiration coming about thanks to the iconic Asterix. Admit it, you’re sold on Gallic Wars: Battle Simulator already. Aren’t you?
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, Gallic Wars: Battle Simulator has previously done the rounds on PC through Steam, but now it’s time for the strategic plays of the battlefield to come to console, with Xbox players able to get involved in the madness of the ruck.
Priced at just £4.19, Gallic Wars: Battle Simulator really does do as it says on the tin, placing you in charge of a group of Roman warriors, heading forward in hope of conquering all lands. It’s here where your tactical nous will come into play as you go about deploying your troops, planning their exact movements and utilising the power of not just the sword, but magic and other items, in order to find success.
A cartoon-styled visual approach is what MadGamesmith and Ultimate Games are utilising here, with inspiration for Gallic Wars’ creation coming from the legendary Asterix. That fun theme should roll out to the gameplay mechanics too, with ragdoll physics, easy to understand yet hard to master ideas, and fast gameplay all bringing together what should make this Battle Simulator great.
Of course, whether it is great or not is fully up for debate until our full review of Gallic Wars: Battle Simulator on Xbox is here. Keep an eye out for it.
