Rebels and Redcoats is a digital adaptation of the Decision Games boardgame and sees you fighting out the decisive battles of the American War of Independence.

It's just landed in New Zealand, which means it should be out in the UK at midnight tonight.

It's a hex-based war game with a focus on historical accuracy and in-depth tactics. There's a five mission tutorial campaign, a five mission Resistance campaign, and a five mission Revolution campaign.

You can play the Resitance and Revolution campaigns as either side. There's 26 different unit types, and a huge wodge of other content that will either excite you deep in your bones or make you fall over and drown in a puddle of boredom.

The game will cost a pretty hefty £6.99 / $9.99 when it's released in the UK later tonight.

We should have a review up on the site in the next couple of days, so if you're unsure whether to invest, maybe wait on that.
