Epic Battle Simulator Features War Scenarios Of Epic Proportions
(Last Updated On: December 28, 2016)

Developers Brilliant Game Studios has created a war simulation game that features an impressive amount of units on the screen, in their new game titled, Epic Battle Simulator.

When I first saw this game I thought to myself “Why is Totally Accurate Battle Simulator back on steam Greenlight again?”, until I realized that this is a completely new game made by another development team.

While Totally Accurate Battle Simulator was more-so focused on physics-based battles, Epic Battle Simulator focuses more on a massive number of units on the screen all at once in a variety of crazy scenarios. You can place Roman soldiers against an army of chickens as numberless as sand along the seashore, or an army of modern day military soldiers armed with assault rifles, fighting against a flood of zombies that are as countless as the stars in the sky.

Does that sound like an exaggeration? It really does, but that is in truth what the game is all about. Epic Battles on an Epic scale. The below video showcases 10,000 chickens on the battlefield at once, but the developers say that if your machine can handle it (and they really don’t recommend this), you can bump that number up to 100,000 units.

Battles can be very diverse, it doesn’t JUST have to be chickens, Romans or military soldiers, the game will also include Knights, Trolls, Orcs, Penguins, and some super fat Santas as well, allowing you to mix and match the different unit types to your heart’s content to create as many different Epic Battle Simulations that you can imagine. Take a look at the two videos that I linked below to see how the game works in action.

The developer said that he spent months using the Unity game engine to create the perfect crowd rendering system, but he also kept the units acting individually with their animations, while also allowing them to keep their detail without slowing down the framerate of the game. Not only that, but the game also features an impressive lighting system and environments to give a pretty realistic look to the game. Considering there are over 10,000 units currently present on the screen, I have to say, Epic Battle Simulations is pretty impressive.

If you would like to see this game make it to Steam, head on over to their Steam Greenlight page and vote for the game to make it happen.

    too bad they don’t include archers in the video, seeing the arrow’s parabolic move in the sky en masse will be very epic.

    my favorite moment in the video is when the penguins jump off from the cliff!

    • Nick

      I loved that scene as well! Now that you mention it, I don’t think archers were listed. That’s interesting. I would love to see this game over time to see what else he adds. I also want a Chicken vs Penguin death battle… for science and research purposes of course…

      • EroBotan

        i hope they add archers to the list soon! And since you want chicken vs penguin, how about adding colonel sanders vs santa too!

        • Nick

          I like the way you think, sir! Well gosh darn it, if they do colonel Sanders, we have to have him fight an army of rebellious “special recipe” chickens. .-.

          • EroBotan

            time to discipline the “special recipe” chickens!!

    “…an army of modern day military soldiers armed with assault rifles…”

    Or – y’know – WWII-era soldiers with Tommy Guns, which was what the video showed.

    That said – thanks for reporting on this. What an interesting concept.

      Haha, yeah. I decided to leave it general because he might add more in the future. The Santa and Penguins are new for the holidays, so as time goes on he might add more. He lists Romans, Knights and Medieval soldiers as three different units (instead of just lumping them all as medieval soldiers), so I wasn’t completely sure how many different types of more modern military units there would be in the actual game.
