December 1944, The German Army Headquarter orders the last big offensive: Watch on the Rhine. Thousands of soldiers supported by tanks, air fighters and bombardiers fought for three dramatics weeks around the Ardennes forest, now you can play it. Feel like a General Commander, leading tens of divisions to stop the German's offensive or breaking th Allied's defenses.
General Commander provides you of new combat systems, scale and supply management. The new rules will give you the opportunity to simulate the Blitzkrieg, the army's movements as it was in the WWII; the combats distance, the map scales and the supply dependency recreate the most accuracy game scenario existing now for Wide Real Time Strategic videogames.
Welcome to “WWII: GC”, the first RTOS (Real Time Operational Strategy) game for the PC platform. The RTS world’s mode breaks with the conventional way of playing and puts the player in an authentic WWII tactical and strategic decision making simulation. Moreover, the operational mechanics of the traditional turn-based strategy game have been optimised and also enhanced by a 3D engine that allows powerful zooms: it provides a continuous 300 square km real playing field, covering Belgium, southern Holland and north west France. The players will be able to direct their divisions, regiments and battalions attempting to occupy the most strategic positions and develop authentic and very close-to-reality manoeuvres.
WWII: GC. Operation: Watch on the Rhine is the first of several scenes that will cover the most important bellicose settings of WWII.
