27th April 2012 - Hampshire, UK:- Deep Silver and X1 Software/AWAR today released a new trailer for the upcoming tactical shooter “Iron Front – Liberation 1944”. In Poland in the summer of 1944, soldiers march through fields, pass villages and hide in woods. The Red Army and the Wehrmacht prepare for the battles of the Soviet Offensive, which played a crucial part in Germany’s defeat in the Second World War. The video shows how the infantry of both sides prepare for their convergence. The game features not only a realistic and extensive campaign based on the historical events of the Soviet Offensive in 1944, but also authentic replications of weaponry and warplanes. “Iron Front – Liberation 1944” will be available exclusively for the PC from May 25, 2012.
“Iron Front – Liberation 1944” is based on the engine of ARMA II Operation Arrowhead by Bohemia Interactive. The story takes place in southern Poland during the Soviet Offensive in the summer of 1944. The player takes on the role of a Russian or German infantryman, using teamwork, tactical skill and authentic war machines to battle for victory. The German campaign focuses on slowing the advance of the Soviet troops, while the Soviet campaign is all about breaking through the enemy's resistance. However, the player does not have to do all this on foot: Using their computers, tacticians will control tanks, including the famous German battle tank Panzerkampfwagen VI or "Königstiger" and the Russian Stalin tank JS2, or fighter planes such as the Focke Wulf 190 and dive bombers like the Stuka or the Petlyakov PE-2.
Online is where the battle really heats up in "Iron Front – Liberation 1944": Players can complete missions either cooperatively or compete with each other in special multiplayer modes such as "Capture the Flag" or "Attack and Defense". "Iron Front – Liberation 1944" also includes an extensive mission editor, enabling players to intuitively create their own missions and share them with their friends online, thus guaranteeing that there will never be a shortage of new missions.
"Iron Front – Liberation 1944" is due to be released exclusively for the PC in May 2012.
