MAKING HISTORY®: The Calm & the Storm is a welcome next step for strategy games. It delivers the open-ended gameplay of strategy classics like Civilization, but with compelling new economic, military, and diplomatic systems that let you play with real historical challenges.

The game drops you into a rich WWII world, then gives you power to make your own history. You work with your nation’s unique, deeply researched strengths and weaknesses. Build up your industry, infrastructure, economy, military. Create alliances with other nations. Then evolve your strategy as other nations pursue their own agendas and the world shifts and reshapes with each turn.

With detailed historical context, dynamic strategy and endless replayability, Making History has the makings of a new strategy classic. If you’ve ever stayed up late finishing “one more turn” in a classic like Civilization, you’ve got to play this game.

Key Features:

Each nation is given detailed characteristics built on extensive research, including economic and military strengths, diplomatic relations, ideology, and technical advancement. Each region features terrain, infrastructure, resource production and more.

You are your Nation: Jump into a world in motion where every nation is pursuing its own agenda, and where events can turn on the breaking of a single alliance. Devise strategies based on your nation’s historic strengths and weaknesses– and revise your plans as the world evolves in response to your actions. Play as the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the USSR, the United States, or China.

Sophisticated World Economy: The game’s economic system models the connections between world power and economic strength. Players control trade, aid, industrial development, infrastructure investments, and a deep field of research.

Powerful Alliance System: As you make and break alliances, declare war and propose peace, each action affects your relations with other nations, and their willingness to ally with you. If you lack strong allies, you may find other nations are more are more likely to attack.
