Hunted Cow Studios brings the American Civil War to life with Civil War: 1864. Over 40 missions and 20 detailed historical battles.

1864 was an important year in the American Civil War. On May 31, Maj. General’s cavalry unit seized the vital crossroads at Cold Harbor, marking one of the final battles in Ulysses S. Grant’s famed Overland Campaign. It was also the year that Maj. General William T. Sherman made his famous March to the Sea, destroying military and supply targets along the way.

Now, the U.K.’s Hunted Cow Studios has come out with a brand new mobile game that simulates over 20 battles throughout the war.

This is the third installment of the studio’s Civil War franchise, following 1863 and 1864.

“1864 saw the Union army make substantial gains against the Confederate forces in the American Civil War,” the game’s press release said. “Grant, replacing Halleck, took the risky gamble of attacking the Confederates on three different fronts. While Grant failed to gain any significant tactical advantage in any battle against Robert E. Lee, he succeeded at depleting Lee’s forces. On the Western front, Sherman was able to capture Atlanta and seize Savannah. The Union’s control of the railways and waterways gave them an immense logistical advantage, which would become vital to the North’s eventual success. The Confederacy was ultimately fighting and losing a defensive war.”
