In Hapsburg Eclipse, from designer Darin A. Leviloff, you control the leadership of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and, peripherally, the German Central Staff who assumes greater and greater control over their ally. The Austro-Hungarians have unique challenges as they try to survive the onslaught of the inRussian Steamroller in and conquer the Serbs in the south. The mission will be complicated by the perseverance of those enemies, the difficulties with new fronts in Romania, the Balkans, and the Italian border, and the difficulty of keeping the Empire’s restive nationalities from revolting against Hapsburg rule.
In the end, the war was too much for the disparate nationalities of Austria-Hungary to take and when it became clear that the Central Powers could not win the war, the Austro-Hungarian Empire disintegrated. Can you succeed in keeping the monarchy intact? Play Hapsburg Eclipse and find out!
