Combat Elite: WWII Paratroopers is a third-person action game set during World War II, beginning with the D-Day invasion of France when paratroopers were dropped behind enemy lines ahead of the Normandy landings to support the Allied assault on Germany’s Fortress Europe.

Developed by BattleBorne Entertainment using the acclaimed Snowblind Engine which created such games as Everquest 2 and Baldur’s Gate Dark Alliance, Combat Elite™: WWII Paratroopers will be available for play on the Xbox, PS2 and PC.

“With several years of development and using the critically acclaimed Snowblind game engine, Combat Elite WWII Paratroopers puts players on the front lines of the most well-known battles of WWII,” said BattleBorne’s Chief Architect, James Kosta.

Players start out as a private and progress through the game’s historic campaigns to participate in battles from D-Day to Market Garden, Bastogne and beyond. Over the course of the game players will gain rank, earn skill points to improve their characters and fight with a wide array of authentic WWII weapons and equipment. The game’s missions will be playable in both single-player and two-player cooperative modes.
