'Order of War' Rolls Out Pre-Order Items As Free DLC

by Rainier on Oct. 23, 2009 @ 9:11 a.m. PDT

Order of War will feature massive scale battles brought to life with a cinematic intensity never seen before in a WWII strategy game. Players will take command of an entire army including ground troops, artillery, tank divisions and aircraft in all out strategic assaults.

To celebrate the one month anniversary of Order of War, Wargaming.net has released free downloadable content. The DLC will download automatically when you launch the game next. The content contains all the formerly exclusive pre-order items.

Free DLC includes:

  • Heavy Bomber Squadrons - Addition of German Arado and Allied B-24 Marauder heavy bomber units to air support
  • Infantry Mortar Launchers - Addition of infantry mortar units
  • Off-Map Heavy Artillery - Addition of heavy artillery strikes to the air support menu
  • Survival Mission Mode - New survival mission mode where you fend off waves of attacking enemies for as long as possible

Order of War will feature massive scale battles brought to life with a cinematic intensity never seen before in a WWII strategy game. Players will take command of an entire army including ground troops, artillery, tank divisions and aircraft in all out strategic assaults. The single-player mode can be played out in two campaigns – American versus German forces on the western front and German versus Russian on the eastern front – missions will be based on key historic events and operations from 1944.

Order of War will be Square Enix’s first release of a western developed game outside of Japan, and one which will see the company release the title simultaneously across multiple territories.

In the summer of 1944, the Second World War entered its end-game when the Allies launched two major operations that would drive back German forces on both the Western and Eastern Fronts at once.

In the ultimate test of military strategy, Order of War will challenge you not only to lead America’s finest to victory in the West, but also place you in command of German forces charged with repelling the Red Army’s seemingly unstoppable offensive in the East.

Even the keenest military minds will find that it’s one thing to make history, but quite another to change it.

Do you have what it takes to command?
