Blitzkrieg 2 Ships to North American Retail
September 28, 2005 — The ultimate
historical RTS, Blitzkrieg 2, has shipped to North American retail stores today.
Blitzkrieg 2 will challenge gamers to lead their troops into battle through some
of the major theaters of WWII warfare. Featuring a fully upgraded WWII gaming
experience, Blitzkrieg 2 will have players battling through dozens of new
missions with a slew of new units and battlefield commanders.
Developed by Nival Interactive,
Blitzkrieg 2 takes everything gamers loved about the original game and kicks it
up to a whole new level. Players take on the role of German, American and
Russian WWII battlefield commanders modeled after their real-world counterparts
as they command more than 250 types of historically accurate troops, including
60 varieties of ground infantry. A new, fully 3D graphics engine displays
battlefield action in all its visual glory as Russian Katyusha rocket launchers
light up the night sky with fiery rocket volleys, Stuka bombers drop their
deadly payloads on ground units and artillery annihilates opposing structures.
Historic conflicts are fought
through more than 75 missions, including 10 multiplayer maps, while a powerful
mission editor allows gamers to create custom missions and maps. Whether
fighting in the jungles of the Pacific, the endless Steppe of the Eastern Front,
the unforgiving deserts of Northern Africa, or the treacherous forests of the
frozen Ardennes, players will enjoy the ultimate World War II RTS experience in
Blitzkrieg 2. For more information, please visit
