Anyway, the dev team has recently announced that they're teaming up with Games Workshop yet again in order to revitalize another one of their cult-status board games of old: Dark Future.

The new AI can be set to easy, normal, and hard depending on your level of skill, and you can play against it in the campaign, classic 40 v/s 40 battle, or a quick 16 v/s 16. The update also makes the game universal, revamps the campaign, and tweaks the overall style.

“This version of Stratego is tailored to the way mobile players are used to playing on their devices. Short sessions and the possibility to play whenever you want are important to players. With this in mind we have made a great game that appeals to young and old alike. Just like the physical board game does,” says Jur van Teunenbroek, producer of Stratego.
