'Land of War: The Beginning' Gets New PC Release Date

Land of War: The Beginning is the world’s first, first-person shooter game fully dedicated to the outbreak of WWII in Poland on September 1939. It portraits the opening episodes and battles fought by Poles during the German invasion.

Land of War is a first-person shooter located in 1939 Poland during German “Blitzkrieg” invasion. The main character, private Piotr Kowalski, while being relocated to Mokra, gets accidentally involved in a series of intelligence encounters between Polish and German spies. His decisions will impact fates of many, possibly saving the world as we know it. His path will lead through many historical locations and battles of the 1939 campaign.

In the battle of Mokra, the player will fight against German panzer divisions using “Ur” anti-panzer gun as well as operating an armoured train. He will embark on a crazy raid in a TKS tankette to break through German blockade near Modlin, defend Hel peninsula and help separate it from mainland with explosives! All that in epic semi-open, beautifully modelled landscapes picturing forests, villages and towns of 1939 Poland.

Throughout the game the player will be able to find and use a lot of little-known arms and equipment used by both Polish and German troops during these early stages of WWII. He will use it in a variety of challenging episodes: battles, skirmishes, reconnaissance and sabotage missions. The main character will take on the role of an infantier, reconnaissance scout, artillery man as well as tank and train driver.

A set of carefully prepared missions will force the player to take decisions on how to cope with particular problems. Apart from the obvious continuous fire, some missions will require sniper skills, others may be best experienced with just a knife and some with patience. Most of them, however, will throw the payer straight into the middle of a fierce battle, where lightning fast reactions and tactical skills will be the only way to survive.

The fate of the hero is intertwined in between real historical events which lead us through the battle of Poland on September 1939…

The real Land of War.

Land of War: The Beginning will launch on June 10th 2021, two weeks after the initially planned release date. The delay is caused by symbols that might be associated with nazi ideology and which had to be removed by the developers.

"The game is complete and fully playable from start to finish. The delay is caused not by technical issues, but by the necessity to remove some nazi symbols from the build. In Land of War we made detailed reconstructions of weapons, vehicles, uniforms and locations from WW2. History buffs don’t have to worry - the gameplay remains immersive and historically accurate to the setting of September 1939. We’d like to apologize to all the gamers who want to dive into our game. Considering all the factors, the game will launch on June 10th," says Sebastian Binik from MS Games.

Additionally, MS Games promised further support for the game after its launch. In countries where the law allows it, a special patch will restore the controversial symbology. In September an additional map and weapons will be added as DLC to the game.

Key Features:

  • The player will take part in the most important historic operations in Poland, September campaign in 1939, escape from the first bombed city of WW2 Wielun and much more!
  • Weapons, vehicles, uniforms and all game elements recreated with focus on every detail using real and existing objects.
  • Very rare prototype and conceptional weapons like ‘Mors’ machine gun, semi-automatic rifle ‘wz. 38M’ and more are given for players disposal!
  • Game story is based on real historic events, dynamic twists of action and heroic battles that will give you an unique feel and atmosphere of WW2.

Players can take screenshots of Land of War using Nvidia Ansel, a tool which allows free camera movement and adds a variety of filters and effects to the final picture.

Land of War: The Beginning is coming to PC on June 10, 2021, followed by Xbox Series X|S later in the year.
