This isn't just another WW2 RTS click-fest, but a thrilling Real Time Combat Simulator with an emphasis firmly entrenched on realism and detail, historical accuracy, and real world military tactics that will challenge even the most battle hardened armchair general! When the two teams that brought you the most successful and highly regarded combat simulations of the last decade come together, you can expect only the BEST! It's time to enter the Theatre of War!

Theatre of War offers an extensive real-time strategy experience. By combining the look, feel and historical elements of World War II, Theatre of War creates an unrivaled tactical battlefield experience that spans major campaigns from the Battle of Moscow to Normandy. With more than 50 missions spread across multiple campaigns and a rich do-it-yourself mission and map editor included, Theatre of War rewards armchair generals with tremendous gaming and replay value.

"We are very pleased to be working with Battlefront.com on Theatre of War. It's a strong title that expands the strategy genre with its focus on providing a sandbox for military enthusiasts to test historical and hypothetical ‘what if?’ scenarios," said Mario Kroll, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for cdv Software Entertainment USA. "With the rich pedigree of teams that delivered the acclaimed IL-2 Sturmovik and the Combat Mission series, we feel we are able to offer something really special by bringing Theatre of War to North American retail customers."

"In cdv Software Entertainment USA, we have a partner with a distinguished history of publishing top-quality strategy titles," said Martin van Balkom of Battlefront.com. "cdv is well-known in strategy circles as both a strong publisher, and an excellent partner. We are please to work with them again to expand the audience for Theatre of War."

Theatre of War offers a fresh take on the WWII Real-time Strategy genre by combining the look, feel, sounds and historical elements of WWII to create the ultimate warfare simulation. The game engine features realistic shell ballistics, armor penetration calculations and damage effects coupled with destructible environments, trenches, fortifications and individually tracked weapons, equipment, ammo and vehicles. More than 50 battles spread across seven different campaigns (US/UK, Soviet, German, French, Polish, Battle for Moscow and Panzer Lehr in Normandy), along with eight non-campaign scenarios, five Training scenarios and 11 different multiplayer missions are available in the game to offer a rich and challenging combat experience to players.

cdv Software USA is bringing Theatre of War to North American stores in May 2008.
