Experience some of the fiercest battles of WWII across North Africa with Mare Nostrum. Building on the realistic, tactical game play that made Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45 a fan favourite, Mare Nostrum lets players battle it out in an all new theatre of war. Featuring British, Australian, German and Italian nations, choose from a range of authentic weaponry or crew 1 of 10 fully realised vehicles. With 8 different battle environments the game play is varied from gritty street to street fighting in urban surroundings, to all out tank warfare in the open desert. This is North Africa, but not like you have seen it before. On the 17th October 2008, Mare Nostrum became the first, third party game MOD to be made available on Steam.

Semovente 75/18 for the Italians, countered with multiple Valentine

  • Crete - Fallschirmjäger units dropping into the midst of Australian defenders in this classic battle.
  • Ancona Approach - The Fallschirmjäger are back in action, this time defending against the Polish advance in eastern Italy.
  • Gazala Line - Desert tank warfare does not get bigger than this. Start your engines and prepare for total war.
  • Road To Tunis - The war in North Africa is almost over, but the British
    must first push the Axis tanks from one last mountain valley to reach
  • Tobruk Central - The Australian defenders have been
    under siege for longer than they can remember, how much longer will
    they be able to hold out?
  • Bardia - The Italian garrison is
    surrounded, but they will not give us this cliff top town and its
    valuable port without a struggle.
