Lace Mamba Global has confirmed that Men of War: Condemned Heroes, the newest installment in the Men of War series, is scheduled to hit the shelves in the UK and Ireland on April 20th, 2012. Men of War: Condemned Heroes tells the story of one of the infamous Soviet penal battalions during the WWII. These battalions are famous for being formed under Stalin's "No step back!" order #227. They consisted of court-martialed officers that were given a chance to redeem their crimes, or incompetence, in blood by serving as the lowest enlisted rank in a battalion that was assigned the most dangerous tasks. These battalions' images are surrounded by many myths, and this game tells the truth about these regiments based on real evidence from their former members.
You will take command of one of these notorious companies and lead it to victory against all odds through most of the war on the Eastern front. You will fight from desperate battles in 1942 in the area of Volyn in the Ukraine, to the massive operation "Bagration" in the Brest area, as well as Magnush bridgehead and the Warsaw area in Poland and finally to attacks on the German Altdam and Stettin near the end of the war.
