Frontline: Fields of Thunder is a new RTS series where players are taken to the frontline, where the gameplay is going back to its RTS roots - inspired by games like Blitzkrieg. With state of the art graphics and an overhauled interface, players will find themselves challenged in many different environments and settings.

“Frontline: Fields of Thunder” follows in the footsteps of the original “Blitzkrieg” and incorporates the best aspects of the now classic RTS games. While fans of “Blitzkrieg” will recognize some familiarities, there are plenty of new and exciting features that promise to occupy gamers’

“Blitzkrieg’ has become an institution among RTS gamers and we felt the first “Frontline” game needed a name that immediately reflects the scope and depth of its gameplay”, said Fredrik Wester, Director of Sales and Acquisitions.
