The gold demo for the game will be available for public download in just a few days
1C and Battlefront.com have announced that Theatre of War has gone gold and will be released worldwide on April 19, 2007, initially via digital delivery from Battlefront's download portal at www.battlefront.com, and a couple of weeks later in a DVD version with printed manual available by mail. Theatre of War is not sold in stores due to Battlefront's "independent publisher" policy. In Theatre of War, players will command hundreds of different unit types in 5 historically accurate campaigns (US, UK, Soviet, German, French and Polish). The game features real time combat simulation: realistic shell ballistics, armor penetration calculations and damage effects coupled with destructible environments, trenches, fortifications and individually tracked weapons, equipment, ammo and vehicles.
