Blitzkrieg 3 released!

Dear players,

With your help the development of the main part of the game has come to an end. We are pleased to announce that today, June 2, we are celebrating the long-awaited release of Blitzkrieg 3! And we’ve got you to thank for it!

Many innovations, such as trenches, mobile fortifications and various technologies, were implemented based on your requests. These solutions allowed us to preserve the atmosphere of the original series. More than 90 new units have appeared during the early access stage, and most of them were your ideas.

The team wants to give special thanks to the players who painstakingly studied historical publications and documents. You’ve helped us achieve a very high level of historical authenticity: your recommendations and comments allowed us to correct more than 800 inaccuracies in graphics, characteristics and balance. Without your help, this would be impossible even with the involvement of historical consultants.

Your ideas and desire to have a worthy and, most importantly, fair computer opponent prompted us to create Boris, the world's first neural network artificial intelligence for RTS.

Please note that on 1st of June we’ve reset the progress of all accounts.You can now fully appreciate all the numerous innovations and complete all 3 campaigns while enjoying their full-featured final versions, updated graphics and voice-over.

It is also very important for the players to be on an equal footing at the start of the project. Everyone will start from scratch. The outcome of battles will be determined by tactics rather than an endless reserve of machinery! However, your previous experience will undoubtedly become an advantage.
The game’s development does not stop there, and all your wishes and comments are still very important for the Blitzkrieg 3 team and will be taken into account when developing the game further!

Do not hesitate to use any of the available channels to contact us.
The release of Blitzkrieg 3 is our unite victory, friends!

About This Game

Enhance the full Blitzkrieg experience!
Eisenhower, Rommel, Zhukov; Assume your rightful place among the great generals commanding the Allies, Germans or Soviets as they advance through the decisive battles of WWII. Blitzkrieg is the latest development in WWII real-time strategy gaming combining flexibility, historic accuracy and endless playability into one of the most challenging and enjoyable games yet!

Blitzkrieg's unique and completely flexible campaign structure puts you in control of deciding how your forces will fare in each of the major engagements that comprise three central Campaigns. Hardcore vets have the option of engaging the enemy immediately in a desperate struggle for battlefield dominance, or more cautious players can choose from pre-defined or unlimited randomly generated side missions as they gain experience, promotions and weapons upgrades as well as wear down the enemy before the central conflict.

Historical accuracy is pushed to the edge as each unit is endowed with the actual capabilities and characteristics that existed at the time. Details such as the thickness of a tank's armor down to the range of infantry rifles add a level of previously unprecedented realism. Each campaign has been meticulously researched to provide an accurate depiction of the battles that took place, while still maintaining the flexibility (and fun!) necessary to let you play the way you want.

Two robust editors are Blitzkrieg's keys to unlocking endless game play possibilities. The Mission Editor allows you to generate and add your own missions, chapters and campaigns according to the options you want most, from level of difficulty to type of action. The Resource Editor gives you total license to redesign the game, add or modify units, characteristics, colors, textures, sounds and more - unlimited freedom to play the game on your terms.
