In 1944, the locals of a small Dutch town named Hellendoorn witnessed an odd site on an almost daily basis: a huge missile rising from the forest on a tower of fire and smoke. The Germans had aimed most of these powerful V2 rockets at Antwerp, but now they have a new target: the bridge at Remangen, Germany. If they can destroy this bridge, they can slow down the Allied advance across the Rhine River and into the heart of Germany. Can the Germans launch its missile in time to defeat the Allied campaign? In the all-new Hellendoorn mission, just one of eight new campaigns in Secret Weapons of WWII, the fate of the war is in your hands.
The demo also unleashes the power of ten of the 16 new weapons in Secret Weapons of WWII. Fly and fight at the same time with the experimental German rocket pack, or buzz the skies in one of the new compact dynamo fighter planes—the Axis Natter rocket plane or the Allied F-85 Goblin. Both the Axis and Allies also have new motorcycles with machine gun-mounted sidecars, as well as amphibious assault vehicles: the German Schwimmwagen and the American LVT-2 Water Buffalo. The new Axis Flakpanzer, a T-38 tank with an anti-aircraft gun mounted on top, is a nasty beast—but it looks tame compared to the Allies’ Sherman tank with a T-34 Calliope rocket launcher.
With all this plus new hand-held weapons such as silenced SMGs, new assault rifles, and deadly throwing knives, become a deadly force on the most intense virtual battlefields ever created. Prepare yourself for all-out war in the Battlefield 1942: Secret Weapons of WWII demo
