Despite the collapse of the Soviet Union and China's transition to a free market economy, the premise of fighting for freedom against the threat of hostile communist invasions continues to remain popular and is carried out to the extreme in Sierra’s latest real-time strategy World in Conflict.
Set in the late '80s, World in Conflict presents the following "what if" scenario: the Russians have launched an all-out invasion on our nation and it's up to you to leadU.S. forces in battle against them.
