Stormregion, who have previously developed highly acclaimed S.W.I.N.E., made massive tanks a crucial element in this tactical combat action title set in World War II. Russian, German and Allied troops fight in three campaigns and more than 30 breath taking single player missions. Over a hundred authentic 3D vehicles are at disposal as well as a wide range of ground troops. Panzers developer Achim Heidelauf has updated his website, read more to check the new screens...

In Panzers, Stormregion has really outdone themselves with their Surround Gaming implementation. Designed specially for Parhelia, this implementation gives the player a fully dynamic 2D Map view on one monitor, a standard playable view on the center screen, and a zoomed-in action view on the 3rd monitor. With this, a player can quickly see the flow of the battle in the 'big picture', while still controlling their units and seeing the results in full-quality glory. It's a thing of beauty.
