'Airborne Assault: Red Devils Over Arnhem' Ships To Stores

by Rainier on June 19, 2002 @ 5:33 p.m. PDT and developer Panther Games announced that their latest operational level real-time wargame, Airborne Assault - Red Devils over Arnhem is now "shipping". The game is being sold exclusively through (which means you'll not find it on retail shelves) and pre-orders to the US & Europe are headed to customers.

In this latest game from Panther Games players take control of the British Airborne forces (nicknamed the "Red Devils") as they attempt to seize control of the strategic Rhine River crossing at the Dutch town of Arnhem in September 1944 -- or rally the tattered German forces as they try to repel the airborne invaders.
