War Front: Turning Point explores an alternate World War II, one in which Hitler is assassinated in the early days. This new timeline includes more than just new leadership. Players will take command of experimental weapons, prototype vehicles and units rarely seen in strategy games in an attempt to alter or secure the historical outcome of World War II.

Roland Hellmann
Birth Date: October 12, 1921
Birth location: Germany

The consummate military officer, Roland Hellmann has been the pride of Germany's fighting forces since his graduation from the Military Academy. He's been both a boon to Germany's fighting forces, and the bane of many of his Commanders.

Hellmann was probably one of the most controversial figures at the German Military Academy. A powerful leader and student, yet a headstrong youth not likely to take orders without question, he has proven to be a great battlefield commander, and a thorn in the sides of his superiors. His style of leadership is vastly different from that of the standard Wehrmacht officers, which makes him a "loose cannon" in the minds of many traditional officers.

Of all Hellmann's superiors, General Hardt was the only one to take on the role of mentor and friend, fighting alongside him for many years on the European front. However, after years of fighting, General Hardt has become disillusioned with the Nazi cause, and begun a rebellion which will require Hellmann to make a choice between friendship, his country and the Nazi cause.

Special weapon: Modified 3-barrel Panzerfaust


  • Innate ability: Demolition: Panzerfaust has a chance to destroy targeted vehicles instantly
  • Active skill: Bravery: Hellmann receives an armor point bonus for 30 sec. After using this power, it requires a five minute cool-down period.
  • Passive skill: Stamina: Increases overall hit points
  • Aura: Ordnance: increases the firing range of Hellmann and any troops in his aura.

War Front is a state-of-the-art WWII 3D RTS game providing fast-paced, adrenaline pumping conquests. Players will feel the atmosphere of WW2 in a new environment; besides commanding their existing units, they have to care about reinforcements, resource management and researching new prototypes. Choose what missions to fight, what troops to use, and when to call in reinforcements. Completing objectives and capturing strategic locations such as train stations or airfields in each mission will help you to win subsequent campaigns. Each mission has multiple primary and secondary objectives that are connected to other missions, providing almost limitless strategic choices.
