Nival has announced Blitzkrieg 3 is coming to the rest of the world (it was previously only announced for Russia). Press release info below, but before we get to that, to celebrate they’re having a sale on their earlier games on Steam.
Blitzkrieg Anthology is $4.99
Blitzkrieg 2 Anthology is also $4.99
These are both pretty old, released in 2003 and 2005 respectively and, disclaimer, I haven’t played them yet.
In days of yore there was always a new wargame right around the corner but these days they’re so rare that a new one feels like cause for celebration.
Anyway here comes the PR stuff:
September 18 – St. Petersburg – A decade ago, Nival cemented itself as a leader in strategy gaming with the launch of its now-classic Blitzkrieg series, which has won more than forty awards, including numerous Game of the Year and Editor’s Choice accolades. Today, Nival unveils Blitzkrieg 3, the next title in the acclaimed series, coming to PC and Mac in early 2015. Blitzkrieg 3 paints a realistic picture of World War II – away from the realm of politics or ideology, focused on the battles that ultimately shaped the world we live in today.
Players will become commanders of the era as they experience an interactive story of the second World War, blending single-player and innovative multiplayer gameplay. Classic single-player campaigns will be available for each party involved in the conflict – the USSR, the Axis and the Allies. Multiplayer is asynchronous, allowing players to make their way through the enemy defenses without needing to be online for hours on end.
“Since its establishment 17 years ago, Nival has been focused on the strategy genre – often mixing it with other elements to create new game experiences,” says Sergey Orlovskiy, CEO of Nival. “We feel that today’s rather rapid pace of life has caused the RTS genre to fall by the wayside. Blitzkrieg 3 is designed to re-invent RTS for modern gamers, using all of our experience to deliver something new and exciting.”
More information about Blitzkrieg 3 will be released in the coming months, but for now prospective strategists can take a look at the official website www.blitzkrieg.com, complete with gameplay footage, developer insight, screenshots and more.
