Eisenhower, Rommel, Zhukov; Assume your rightful place among the great
generals commanding the Allies, Germans or Soviets as they advance
through the decisive battles of WWII. Blitzkrieg is the latest
development in WWII real-time strategy gaming combining flexibility,
historic accuracy and endless playability into one of the most
challenging and enjoyable games yet!
Blitzkrieg's unique and
completely flexible campaign structure puts you in control of deciding
how your forces will fare in each of the major engagements that
comprise three central Campaigns. Hardcore vets have the option of
engaging the enemy immediately in a desperate struggle for battlefield
dominance, or more cautious players can choose from pre-defined or
unlimited randomly generated side missions as they gain experience,
promotions and weapons upgrades as well as wear down the enemy before
the central conflict.
Historical accuracy is pushed to the
edge as each unit is endowed with the actual capabilities and
characteristics that existed at the time. Details such as the thickness
of a tank's armor down to the range of infantry rifles add a level of
previously unprecedented realism. Each campaign has been meticulously
researched to provide an accurate depiction of the battles that took
place, while still maintaining the flexibility (and fun!) necessary to
let you play the way you want.
Two robust editors are
Blitzkrieg's keys to unlocking endless game play possibilities. The
Mission Editor allows you to generate and add your own missions,
chapters and campaigns according to the options you want most, from
level of difficulty to type of action. The Resource Editor gives you
total license to redesign the game, add or modify units,
characteristics, colors, textures, sounds and more - unlimited freedom
to play the game on your terms.
