EXPERIENCE THE BLOODY BATTLES OF
THE BLITZKRIEG IN PANZERKRIEG: BURNING HORIZON 2

COMMAND GERMAN, SOVIET AND ALLIED
ARMIES IN NEW WW II PC GAME

Panzerkrieg is the new battle
strategy PC title inspired by the cult game Blitzkrieg. Due for release in June
2009 by Ascaron Entertainment, Panzerkrieg is a real time strategy that combines
the historical accuracy of World War II with thoroughly engaging, yet easy to
master gameplay.

Based on three story-driven single
player campaigns, Panzerkrieg provides gamers with over 50 hours of tactical
combat and engaging strategy. Players can choose between the Allied, German or
Soviet campaigns, reliving key battles from history such as the Battle of the
Bulge, Operation Sturgeon Catch and Battle of the Frontiers.

German campaign: Lost
Victories

Operation Barbarossa is one of the
authentic battles that players can relive in Panzerkrieg. The mission begins
with German troops located in the East and West, with the surrounding terrain at
the enemy’s advantage. Players must deploy their troops to storm the USSR border
where the enemy lie in wait. Just like the real invasion, many of the attacks
will be from fighter planes in the sky. However, players can also make use of
the souvenir H39 French light tank with lethal flamethrowers, for obliterating
infantry and light armoured vehicles at short range.

Soviet campaign: Red
Horizon

The Soviet missions begin in Orshca,
1941, when Europe was dominated by the German Reich. Players must eliminate the
enemy Flak gun and take control of the Katyusha rocket launcher, a formidable
weapon with immense fire power. Commanding as Marshall Voroshilov, this tactical
mission provides a small number of units that must be carefully deployed. The
sniper unit is particularly powerful, as camouflage mode can be used to scout
out the enemy, making covert stealth attacks.

Allied campaign: Blitzkrieg
Rolling Thunder

After tackling the German and Soviet
campaigns, players can truly test their skills as a great war leader in the
challenging Allied missions. These include the retreat to Burma from Singapore
in 1941, where players can command as General Patton. Quick and strategic
thinking is required, as enemy attacks are constant, rapidly diminishing the
number of Allied troops. Using the right units is also important, as correctly
positioned Bofors anti aircraft guns and British Cromwell and Churchill tanks
will help protect troops from airborne and tank attacks. Players can also deploy
snipers or officers to see further afield than other units, gaining important
information on enemy positions.
