Sixty years of tense, uneasy peace are shattered as the Korean Peninsula erupts in renewed warfare. One historically, ethnically and culturally homogeneous people polarized and separated by superpower politics and economics hurl men, weapons and material into the maelstrom of modern combat in an attempt to settle their arbitrary division once and for all. From Pyongyang in North Korea to Busan in the South, the war rages. In a scene reminiscent of the first attack by the In Min Gun in 1950, the North Korean People’s Army surges across the Demilitarized Zone and penetrates deep into South Korea.
Special Operations Forces from both sides conduct raids, interdiction and reconnaissance Missions behind Enemy Lines while Airborne, Air Assault and Amphibious Forces strike far behind those lines attempting to outflank the main Army Forces of both sides. In the air, both sides wage a heated Campaign in an effort to establish superiority over the skies of Korea. With rough terrain and the full ferocity of Modern Armor, Airmobile, Airborne and Marine Warfighting capabilities, there is no safe haven in the lethal Cauldron of Battle which has engulfed the Korean Peninsula.
Next War: Korea, the first of a planned Series of Next War Games, allows Players to fight a near future war on the Korean Peninsula.
