Xbox 360 is a video game and entertainment system that is home to video games, an on-demand library of movies and TV shows connected to the television. The Xbox 360 blends its content with the largest online social network of 20 million members on Xbox Live to create an entertainment experience that can be shared at home or across the globe.

Panzer General: Allied Assault

Panzer General: Allied Assault is an all-new single and multiplayer digital card game that takes place during the last phase of World War II, from 1944 to 1945. The dramatic events of D-Day finally gave the Allies a foothold on Fortress Europe, allowing them to push the Germans back to Berlin. Players can recreate actual battles such as Utah Beach, Operation Market Garden, and the infamous Battle of the Bulge in the hopes of turning back the German tide. Build, customize and fight with your personalized deck of 60 digital cards. History is in your hands.

Ranked as one of the top 50 computer games of all time and quoted by PC Gamer Magazine as "Criminally Addictive”, the Panzer General franchise has spawned a loyal following of dedicated fans eager for more turn-based strategy action. This all-new strategy game title comes after five successful releases under its belt.

Key Features:

  • Thanks to the Collectible Card Game mechanics, players can swap out Unit Cards in decks for the perfect mix of tanks, artillery and infantry. Add in special Action Cards to "break the rules” and surprise opponents with air strikes and reinforcements. Players can retool decks with new cards awarded after each single or multiplayer victory.
  • Panzer General Allied Assault lets players dive into the history of World War II. 3D models of vehicles used during the War march across the board and players can discover the cities where desperate battles took place. It's a new and exciting way to learn history.
  • Players can play with a friend and have access to the special Unit and Action Cards you have unlocked in the single player Campaign. The more you play, the more cards you unlock!

Tower Bloxx Deluxe

Redesigned and adapted specifically to take advantage of Xbox Live Arcade, players will be able to experience this addictive smash hit in HD quality while they play through six unique game modes and compete with friends. You can go head-to-head in Battle Multiplayer mode with up to four players and employ power-ups on other players to increase your chance of winning. Players can also play cooperatively and reach for the skies together as a team.

“We’re excited to be launching our first console game with our smash hit Tower Bloxx Deluxe on Xbox Live Arcade,” said Trip Hawkins, CEO of Digital Chocolate. “The game includes never before seen features on any platform including a variety of multiplayer modes, power-ups and stunning graphics.”

Tower Bloxx Deluxe will be available for 800 points from Xbox Live Marketplace, while a game demo will also be available with a limited number of levels and modes.
