Already available on PC, and jumping on the coat-tails of Asterix & Obelix, Ultimate Games have today confirmed that not only will their Gallic Wars: Battle Simulator come to Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PS5, but Xbox gamers will be able to get in on the action too.
Confirmed for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S alongside all the other formats that help fill the gaming space, Gallic Wars: Battle Simulator is a tactical strategy affair that will have you leading your group of Gauls against the might of Rome.
Promising dynamic gameplay, ragdoll physics and roguelike elements, Gallic Wars has been created by those at the Polish studio of MadGamesmith, with Ultimate Games helping push it out to the millions. As you would expect, it’s been inspired by Asterix – the visuals prove that.
But what actually is Gallic Wars? Well, this Battle Simulator will see you placing warriors, before planning their tasks, observing them in battle and allowing them the chance to cast the odd spell or five. With a range of units equipped with swords, spears, bows and more, and plenty of traps to lay in the hope you can overcome your foes, this is most certainly – as the name suggests – a Battle Simulator.
“In Gallic Wars: Battle Simulator players can count on unusual tactical challenges, a challenging level of difficulty and a considerable dose of madness. When it comes to the graphics, one of the main inspirations was the style of Albert Uderzo, the artist associated with the cult series of comics about Asterix” – said Rafał Jelonek, COO at Ultimate Games S.A.
