Freedom Force vs. The 3rd Reich focuses on the continuing adventures of the heroes of Patriot City. A new evil has emerged from the unlikeliest of places---the past. As Nuclear Winter returns with a diabolical gambit to threaten the free world, three new silver age heroes, Tombstone, Green Genie and Quetzalcoatl, step up to help thwart evil. Freedom Force finds itself transported to war-torn Europe circa WWII where the team must face its greatest threat yet! The group will have to make alliances with Sky King, Black Jack and Tricolour, three Golden Age heroes willing to sacrifice everything to save the world from the original axis of evil! Freedom Force vs. The 3rd Reich has all the city-smashing, bad-guy bashing fun of the first game but further enhances the experience of controlling a team of heroes with all their own strengths, weaknesses and personalities. With an all-new 3D real-time tactical combat engine, a completely revamped multiplayer experience, deep RPG character development and a rich storyline, players will utilize a variety of characters and abilities to defeat an array of villains in dynamic and completely destructible interactive environments!
