History Channel Civil War Video Game Debuts


Activision Publishing’s The History Channel Civil War video game is currently available for Microsoft’s Xbox, Sony’s PlayStation 2 and PCs.

The video-game publisher said players can relive history through the eyes of a Confederate or Union soldier and experience such famous battles as Gettysburg, Bull Run and Antietam.

The suggested retail price is $49.99 for the Xbox, $39.999 for the PS2 and $29.99 for PCs.

“Activision has taken great care in re-creating the wartime conditions that both Confederate and Union soldiers faced, and I think the game will deliver the type of authentic experience viewers expect from The History Channel brand,” A&E Television Networks director of licensing Carrie Trimmer said in a prepared statement.
