Here is the press release ...

[quote]GDC, SAN FRANCISCO - March 1, 2011 - Paradox Interactive today announced Gettysburg: Armored Warfare, a free-to-play, online action game that brings futuristic weapons to an alternate reality of the Civil War. The hybrid Real-time- Strategy (RTS)/ First-Person shooter (FPS) game will offer 32 vs. 32 battles with multiple game modes as Union and Confederate troops fight to change the course of history. Developed by Radioactive Software, Gettysburg: Armored Warfare is powered by Paradox Connect, and scheduled to launch later this year.

"History is a great setting for any game as it adds familiarity and an understanding of the motivations behind the opposing forces," said Tom Soderlund, Project Lead for Paradox Connect. "Throw in tanks from 200 years in the future as well as other modern weapons and you have a really interesting twist on history. That's what we're bringing with Gettysburg: Armored Warfare when it launches later this year."
