Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

We will update this throughout the day when new announcements become available. Read more for details ...

Decisive Campaigns: The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris (PC)

The development team behind the award-winning game Advanced Tactics: World War II is back with a new and improved game engine that focuses on the decisive early days of World War II! Decisive Campaigns: The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris is the first in an innovative series of operational World War II wargames that also include a strategic element. The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris simulates Germany's military successes in Poland and France in 1939 and 1940 (including also a hypothetical "Sea Lion" invasion of Great Britain if you do well enough).

Well researched and packed with depth, including detailed unit data down to the squad and vehicle level and historically realistic combined arms gameplay, The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris also features an easy-to-learn interface and a ferocious AI. Before each campaign, players choose actions and options at a strategic level which can have far-reaching effects on how the actual battle unfolds, with many plausible hypothetical outcomes.

Once in the battle, players move regiments and divisions, coordinate attacks and manage logistics in what we feel is the definitive game on the campaigns of the early Blitzkrieg. There are also unique actions for individual historical generals to give a particular objective or front the extra needed push to victory. Decisive Campaigns: The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris also includes a unique multiplayer feature where players can split up Axis or Allied armies between several people to add an added level of realism and cooperation!

Worms Reloaded (PC)

Worms Reloaded sports over 60 single-player missions, full team and game style customization, landscape editing tools including the ability to import images, HD visuals and all the best weapons from Worms series past and present.

Worms Reloaded also has an intuitive and satisfying multiplayer interface, so even the most inexperienced PC user can find friends and fresh opponents to be on the receiving end of a grenade or bazooka within minutes. Team Fortress 2 gamers who either pre-ordered Worms Reloaded or who purchase it before September 2, 2010, can look forward to exclusive Holy Hand Grenades and a Worms army hat for their soldier in-game!

"It's with tremendous satisfaction that we can finally release a PC Worms title after what seems like an eternity, particularly as we're self-publishing it. This means the connection between our passionate community and the development team itself has never been closer", said Martyn Brown, Business Development Director at Team17.
