Steel Division: Normandy 44 is a Tactical Real-Time Strategy (RTS) game, developed by Eugen Systems, the creators of titles like Wargame and R.U.S.E. This new game puts players in command of detailed, historically accurate tanks, troops, and vehicles at the height of World War II. Players can measure their tactical skills against several opponents in big multiplayer battles or against enemies in a challenging single-player campaign. Steel Division: Normandy 44 allows players to take control over legendary military divisions from six different countries, such as the American 101st Airborne, the German armored 21st Panzer or the 3rd Canadian Division, during the invasion of Normandy in 1944.

Main Features:

Command Over 400 Historically Accurate Units:

Whether fighting for control in intense multiplayer battles with up to 10-vs-10 players going head-to-head, playing alone or working with friends in ranked matches, players will need to coordinate their selection of historically accurate infantry, tanks, aircraft, and support vehicles to counter enemy units in this Tactical RTS game.

Real-world Tactics:

Battles rage over three distinct phases, where different units unlock over time, mimicking the movements of real-world armies and adding variety to the ever-changing theatre of war. A dynamic front line illustrates the ebb and flow of the conflict. Pin down your opponent's infantry to gain the advantage and force a retreat, or push through with a perfectly executed plan.

Real-world Setting:

Using the latest version of Eugen’s IRISZOOM engine, players can smoothly zoom from a tactical aerial view all the way down to a single unit, and see 400 different real-world vehicles and units designed with careful historical detail and accuracy. Maps are designed based on actual aerial reconnaissance photos of Normandy in 1944, requiring real-world tactics and strategies to cover and control.

Outplan, Outsmart, Outgun:

From battlegroup customization to troop positioning and maneuvering, winning battles requires cunning and strategy, not just raw firepower. Each unit lost presents a growing tactical disadvantage, and players will need to fight to gain -- and keep -- the upper hand.

From commanding historically accurate infantry, tanks, and vehicles, to troop positioning and real-time engagement with the enemy, players will need to be clever and resourceful in order to win. Every unit counts as the battle presses on, and raw firepower alone will not be enough to claim victory. Whether viewing the entire battle from an aerial perspective, or following a single tank into a firefight, players will need to cleverly manage the dynamic front line in order to execute ambushes and advances.

Paradox Interactive has announced that its latest published strategy game, Steel Division: Normandy 44, is now available on Steam. Steel Division is the latest title from Eugen Systems, developers of the critically acclaimed Wargame tactical real-time strategy series. A new version of the engine used for Wargame is on show in Steel Division, which allows zooming out to high level strategic view and all the way down to detailed close-ups in real-time.

This has been a hallmark of Eugen Systems’ approach to RTS, not just in its Wargame series but its previous title, RUSE. Steel Division differentiates itself from both of those past titles, however, with a focus on historical accuracy and detail. While RUSE presented fictional World War II units and situations, and Wargame detailed hypothetical modern-day conflicts, Steel Division’s battles are designed on maps created from aerial reconnaissance photos of Normandy in 1944. The hope is that accurate maps, combined with historically accurate units, will therefore require players to adopt real-world tactics to secure victory.

Battles unfold over three separate phases, and require players to pay attention to the positioning of their troops, cover, and how to manoeuvre them effectively. The battlegroups which players send to the front are fully customisable, and can be brought into a singleplayer campaign or into online matches with up to 10 players on each side going head-to-head.

Steel Division is available on Steam for US$39.99, and the game ships with mod support by way of Steam Workshop. The modding tools, currently in beta, can be downloaded over at the Eugen Systems forums.
