In-Engine Trailer for Steel Division: Normandy 44

Eugen Systems and Paradox Interactive have shared a new trailer for Steel Division: Normandy 44.

Featured above, the new trailer is the first in-engine look at the upcoming real-time strategy game. Players will be given a realistic approach to real, iconic battles that went down in World War II.

Eugen Systems are mostly known for the Wargame series, as well as R.U.S.E., with Steel Division: Normandy 44 upping the ante a bit with up to 20 players fighting in 10-versus-10 battles. There’s also a robust single player campaign, as well as various multiplayer modes.

Here’s a list of the game’s key 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.

A release date is set for later this year. For now, you can visit the official website for Steel Division: Normandy 44 here.
