Officers: World War II out now.

The battle for Europe begins.

Worms / Bracknell, 29th May 2009

Take your part in some of the battles that changed the course of World War II. Officers: World War II developed by Morphicon and GFI and published by Kalypso Media is released today. This real-time strategy game will offer players a unique insight into the tactical decisions required to win some of the key battles of World War II. For the first time you will be able to experience fighting large scale battles over maps of up to 10 square miles, with up to 1,500 fighting units.

Operations such as Overlord, Millenium and Cobra will test your tactical skills to the limit. To succeed you will need to combine the skills of your infantry, engineers, tanks and aircraft. As your forces smash through the German lines you will need to ensure they are supplied with all the supplies they require or your advance will falter. Winning battles is as much about tactics and planning as it is about aggression.

The weather and season will effect the equipment you require, as well as affecting the difficulty of running a campaign. In multiplayer mode players can also command Russian&German forces.

Today the battle for Europe begins.

Officers: World War II will be available from 29th May 2009 at a RRP of?24.99
