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 80 missions, including 15 multiplayer maps, while a powerful mod engine allows gamers to create their own single missions or fully linked campaigns. 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.
