Panzer Division Games has released the first gameplay video of their game Attack at Dawn: North Africa. In the hour-long video, the designer Tomislav Čipčić shows in depth how to play the game in one small but exciting historical scenario - Operation Battleaxe.

To quote the designer: "We wanted to show the players the intensity, dynamics and historical accuracy of the game we're making. And we chose one of the most interesting operations in the WW2 North African theater - operation Battleaxe. The players will be able to see how to move and fight, how to order air strikes and call in the artillery support, how to plan and redeploy their forces. We hope that this video will give the future players more insight and hopefully raise interest in our game."
