From the heart of Europe to the deadly jungle isles of the Pacific, campaigns span the globe, with each mission offering a unique challenge. Mission goals vary from counter attacks and air warfare to covert ops and amphibious landings.

FEATURES

  • Three sizeable, historically-accurate campaigns that span the globe with 80 painstakingly researched single- and multi-player missions, including a thorough representation of the World War II challenges faced by the German, Soviet, and the U.S. military and their commanders.
  • Over 250 realistically modeled military units, including 60 types of infantry, along with a comprehensive battlefield recognition guide that serves as in-game military unit encyclopedia.
  • Realistic combat modeling that considers armor plating, penetration effectiveness, reload times, angle of shots, unit experience, and literally tracks every round fired, and more. Tanks may throw tracks and become disabled, while infantry can ride in appropriate wheeled and amphibious vehicles. Aircraft and naval units now play a decisive and player-controllable role.
  • A dynamic campaign interface that rewards historical play, but does not require it. Players gain experience and may appoint battlefield commanders to imbue units under their command with additional capabilities and improve their effectiveness. Successful commanders will gain unit upgrades and newly introduced unit types. Reinforcements must be carefully balanced to create an effective force composition and to provide sufficient strength in individual missions, yet must also be conserved for the operation as a whole.
  • A full-featured editor that allows the creation of everything from simple modifications of existing battles into "what if" alternatives to brand new missions and entire linked-mission chapters.
