BASINGSTOKE, ENGLAND (FEBRUARY 4TH 2005) – Armchair strategists will be delighted with the upcoming release of BLITZKRIEG STRATEGY COLLECTION from CDV SOFTWARE ENTERTAINMENT AG and NIVAL INTERACTIVE. Available on PC CDROM, the collection will be in stores from 18th MARCH 2005, priced at Ã‚Â£19.99.
BLITZKRIEG is the fine art of strategy, but with much more finesse! Dissect the enemy with surgical precision, halt the enemy's advance with strategic tank and air assaults, and maintain offensive momentum. Prove tactical skills by triumphing in various historical campaigns during World War II.
BLITZKRIEG: BURNING HORIZONS throws the player into even more dramatic battles of WWII. Offering a huge 18-missions-campaign around General Rommel, players have the opportunity to play famous battles like Ardennes, Tripolis, Tobruk, El Alamein, Sicily and, of course, Normandy. Furthermore, the add-on contains 8 single missions, with an entire new nation at war: Japan.
50 new units like Zero fighters and Blenheim bombers, the M5 Stuart and many specialized German tanks, US Marines and Afrika Korps units fill the strategy package. Burning Horizon gives the parties better AI: the enemy seeks weak spots in the lines, clears minefields, and handles his air force cleverly. The mission objectives offer a wide range, e.g. airborne assaults, evacuations, covert ops, defences manoeuvres, counter attacks or assassinations.
