Theatre of War 2 : Kursk 1943!

Battlefront.com and 1C Company proudly announce the next major release in the Theatre of War series of authentic World War Two tactical combat simulation - Theatre of War 2 : Kursk 1943!

Theatre of War 2: Kursk 1943 is a completely new game and does not require any of the previous games to play!

The Battle of Kursk lasted for forty nine days, from July 5 until August 23, 1943 and has made its way into history as the biggest armored battle of WWII, and in fact of history. It was the last armored strategic offensive the Germans were able to mount in the east. The resulting decisive Soviet victory gave the Red Army the strategic initiative for the rest of the war.

 

Theatre of War 2 : Kursk 1943 boasts many new features for the first time in the series, such as brand new multiplayer modes and a built-in campaign generator, allowing users to create random missions on the fly!

The game features over 20 new story-based missions with historical military commanders such as Major General Walter Hoerlein and Lieutenant General Ivan Chistyakov . 40 types of military weaponry (including air defense guns, missile launchers, and mortars), new vehicles and thirty types of small arms will be available in both the single player campaigns and the brand new multiplayer modes.

 

Theatre of War 2 : Kursk 1943 is already in late beta stage and is planned to be released, exclusively from www.battlefront.com, by the end of January/early February!

Official game website: http://www.battlefront.com/kursk

The release of the game is imminent and is still on track for Christmas Day! An official game demo is expected to be released just a few days later.

PT Boats - strategic layer video

“PT Boats : Knights of the Sea” really is “two-games-in-one”. On the one hand it is a full blown naval simulation, allowing you to relive the dangers and adrenaline rush of fighting on board of a PT Boat of the “mosquito fleet”. You can man almost every position in the first person, and manage almost every aspect of your boat. On the other hand, “PT Boats” comes with a full featured strategic layer, allowing players to manage not only their boat, but basically an entire fleet from an overhead tactical view (or the 3D action view). Today’s new video showcases combat in the tactical/strategic mode.

New Empires of Steel demo released

Battlefront.com and Atomicgamer have just released a new updated demo of the new innovative global domination strategy game Empires of Steel!

There are however a number of limitations in this beta demo compared to the upcoming full release:

  • you can only play on two maps - the tutorial map (solo) as well as a special demo map (solo and multiplayer, internet and LAN). There are no game length or play time restrictions per session.
  • you can open and use the full-featured map editor but you cannot load nor save any maps
  • you can open and browse the online file exchange service to look for mods, maps, unit rulesets and other user created content, but cannot actually download nor use any of it
  • you can in fact use the in-game auto-update function to download the latest beta demo upgrades that we will release over the course of the next weeks as various bug reports from the open beta come in. Check for updates often! However, this updater will not allow you to download full game upgrades.
  • the beta demo will expire automatically after 180 days.
