Square Enix Announces Ship Date for Its First WWII Real-Time Strategy Game

Square Enix, Inc. announced today that ORDER OF WAR will ship to North American retailers on September 22, 2009.

ORDER OF WAR is a brand-new IP set during World War II and is being developed exclusively for the PC platform by strategy game specialist Wargaming.net. This will be Square Enix’s first release of a western-developed game outside of Japan and kicks off the launch of upcoming titles being developed through partnerships, including SUPREME COMMANDER 2 by Gas Powered Games and FRONT MISSION EVOLVED by Double Helix Games. These titles are part of Square Enix’s commitment to offer a broader variety of games across different genres.

As Square Enix’s first foray into the hugely popular genre of historical real-time strategy, ORDER OF WAR takes strategy games to new heights and features massive-scale battles brought to life with unprecedented cinematic intensity. Players will take command of an entire army including ground troops, artillery, tank divisions and aircraft in all-out strategic assaults. The single-player mode can be played out in two campaigns – American forces versus German forces in occupied France and German forces versus Soviet forces in Poland and versus American forces in France. Missions will be based on key historic events and operations from 1944.

The free, single-player demo – “Road to Paris” – is currently available for download at http://www.orderofwar.com/. In this introductory demo, players are tasked with commanding American troops in an attempt to destroy German outposts amid tank and infantry attacks and clear the road to Paris.
