'Men Of War: Condemned Heroes' - 12 New Screens

by Rainier on Feb. 20, 2012 @ 12:56 a.m. PST

Men Of War: Condemned Heroes fuses tactical thinking with the action-packed direct control mode, and tells the story of one of the infamous Soviet penal battalions during the WWII.

These battalions are famous for being formed under Stalin’s “No step back!” order #227.  They consisted of court-martialed officers that were given a chance to redeem their crimes, or incompetence, in blood by serving as the lowest enlisted rank in a battalion that was assigned the most dangerous tasks. These battalions’ images are surrounded by many myths, and this game tells the truth about these regiments based on real evidence from their former members.

Take command of one of these notorious companies and lead it to victory against all odds through most of the war on the Eastern front. Fight from desperate battles in 1942 in the area of Volyn in the Ukraine, to the massive operation “Bagration” in the Brest area, Magnush bridgehead and Warsaw area in Poland and finally to attacks on the German Altdam and Stettin near the end of the war.


Key features:

  • Ultimate singleplayer experience – 4 campaigns consisting of 15 missions telling the story of the penal company from crucial 1942 to victorious 1945
  • Truth about Soviet penal battalions from their former members
  • New ultra-detailed photorealistic human models, faces and uniforms
  • A comprehensive encyclopedia describing the structure of penal battalions and their operations
