'Blitzkrieg II' Gets UK Release Date

Blitzkrieg II is created with a new focus on fast-paced gameplay, a strategic layer and new tactical opportunities. A completely new engine takes WWII into full 3D where players can command famous aces and units, strategically plan battles in multiple theatres, choose their reinforcements and use a wide range of new unit types such as aircraft and ships. Set for release October 14th 2005 in the UK, Blitzkrieg II will retail for £34.99.

Blitzkrieg II is the epic World War II Real Time Strategy game, where PC generals can strategically plan and command battles across multiple WWII theatres. Choose reinforcements and use a wide range of new combat units through four global campaigns on the side of Great Britain, USA, USSR and Germany. Blitzkrieg II builds upon success of the best selling Blitzkrieg range, focusing upon dynamic game play, new strategic opportunities and gritty realism of WWII battles. The new 3D graphics engine takes a significant leap over the original game, allowing for all strategic angles to be covered.

Blitzkrieg II provides more strategic choices and variations, putting players in control over the difficulty and style of the game. Decide what missions to fight; accumulate and call in any type of reinforcements, capture major objectives like train stations or airfields to receive more troops by railroad or get air supremacy during the entire operation. Each battle represents unique tactical experience as types of objectives vary from counter attack and air warfare to covert operations, seashore battles and landing missions. Accomplishment of tactical objectives supports the war efforts at a strategic level and has profound effect on combat efficiency in the final battles.
