The detection of a Russian attack submarine just outside a major Norwegian port, but still in the northern kingdom's territorial waters, is raising the possibility of armed conflict in the North Sea. Fears that the prolonged oil drilling standoff between Moscow and her Western European rivals will explode have many world capitals concerned. With most of the earth's terrestrial oil supply exhausted and the industrial world's insatiable appetite for oil still growing, the stakes are high in this global battle over who controls access to the wealth buried deep in the Arctic Circle.
No, this isn't breaking news, thank God. It's the premise for this latest Naval War: Arctic Circle trailer from Turbo Tape Games and Paradox Interactive. We've been eagerly antipicating this deep yet accessible title ever since our Gamescom preview, and this new video shows off some of the air and sea units in action.
