Iron Front: Liberation 1944 is set in Southern Poland during the Soviet Offensive in the summer of that year, when the infantry and tank as well as aircraft units of the Red Army and the Wehrmacht engaged in fierce combat. It was the first time in history that the "Königstiger" tanks fought with the powerful JS2 soviet tanks.
The player takes on the role of a Russian or German infantryman, using teamwork, tactical skill and authentic war machines to battle for victory. The German campaign focuses on slowing the advance of the Soviet troops, while the Soviet campaign is all about breaking through the enemy's resistance. Each campaign features eight missions. However, the player does not have to do all this on foot: Using their computers, tacticians will control tanks, including the famous German battle tank Panzerkampfwagen VI or "Königstiger" and the Russian Stalin tank JS2, or fighter planes such as the Focke Wulf 190 and dive bombers like the Stuka or the Petlyakov PE-2
Iron Front D-Day introduces new weapons, armor, and military equipment from a new aspect of the war – the Western Front.
In Iron Front D-Day, players can fire bazookas and Thompson submachine guns, drive Sherman tanks, or attack from above in a P-47 Thunderbolt. Also featured are the famous Higgins landing craft which the Allied Forces used to land at Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944. Thanks to these units, capturing the mainland on the coast becomes a strategic highlight.
The DLC will be available exclusively for PCs as from December 14, 2012, at a price of $ 9.99.
