Afghanistan ’11 features a long campaign: players can experience the whole length of the war through 18 unique scenarios. Each scenario puts you in very different situations, and you’ll have to employ different strategies to beat the scenario and advance in the campaign.
But there’s more outside of the campaign: Afghanistan ’11 offers a very detailed Skirmish mode.
You can play on randomly generated maps and set several parameters, completely customizing your game to your liking. You can set geographical parameters, starting conditions, victory conditions, as well as disable or enable additional modules such as Political events and Elections.
You can even disable any kind of turn limit, making your game unlimited and you’ll be able to play as long as you want!
You also have the option to start a new game on the same map, if you wish: everytime you start a new game with the Skirmish mode, you’ll be given a specific Mission Key code. By entering that code when starting a new Skirmish game, you’ll be able to play on the same map as before!
Other than the campaign, when playing Afghanistan ’11 you’ll have many different objectives in the form of Achievements. There are 59 different achievements in Afghanistan ’11, fiftynine! Completing them all will be quite the task.
As you unlock them, you’ll see that the uniform in the main screen will gain new medals and you’ll also rise in rank! You can click on it and have a closer look at your medals, as well as the achievements you have unlocked.
