About Blitzkrieg 2
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.
About Blitzkrieg 2: Fall of the Reich
Blitzkrieg 2: Fall of the Reich is the first official expansion for the popular WWII RTS – Blitzkrieg 2. Fall of the Reich spans three major offensives from the final days of fighting on the Eastern front, and covers both the Soviet and German offensives in the long "Siege of Budapest", "Fortress Kurland" and the Soviet "Operation Bagration." Fans of the original Blitzkrieg will also enjoy the thorough challenge presented in Fall of the Reich, with mission and campaign design that provide success only to those armchair generals that employ realistic tactics and strategies, managing scarce wartime resources effectively.
