Next update: "Closer", featuring a new game mode

“Closer”, the next free update for Steel Division: Normandy 44, will be available on September 21st, alongside the Second Wave DLC.



Here’s the content of this upcoming update, still developed with the help of selected members of our community:
  • New game mode: “Closer Combat”, as announced in the content roadmap. Do you want to know more about this one? Well, just scroll down!
  • Remastered first campaign mission: we have made some serious adjustments to make it a bit more accessible for newcomers. It kinda felt a bit too much stressful and complex for a first mission. The first timer to seize Audouville has been removed, there is now one single deployment zone, and the general pace of the mission has been revamped. Don’t worry, completing the secondary objectives are still a good challenge, and the other missions of the campaign remain unchanged.
  • New shortcut to toggle “Slow-mo” in Single Player: No need to click like hell to get more time to plan your actions, just press a key (“P” or “K”, depending on your profile, can be changed in the options), and you’re all set.
  • Official servers for 4v4 games, to help reducing lags induced by the peer-to-peer mode.
  • More balancing, more bug fixing...
Let’s have a look to the “Closer Combat” mode:


Based on the Conquest Mode, it aims to make the beginning of the battle more authentic by restricting the vehicle rush to the center of the map. We wanted to give more space to the preparation phase, in order to give you more time to define your strategy and more control on unit placement.



In Closer Combat mode:
  • All transported units can be purchased and deployed without its vehicle. Of course, you won’t bear the cost of the armed transports.
  • Deployment zones are way closer from each other than in other modes.
  • You start to earn points once you control 52% of the battlefield instead of 51%.



Just 6 days left until the release of this fifth update and Steel Division: Normandy 44 - Second Wave DLC. In the meantime, you could keep an eye on Youtube/Twitch, We've heard some streamers and youtubers will have the opportunity to get their hands on this new mode...

About This Game

Steel Division: Normandy 44 is a Tactical Real-Time Strategy (RTS) game, developed by Eugen Systems, the creators of titles like Wargame and R.U.S.E. This new game puts players in command of detailed, historically accurate tanks, troops, and vehicles at the height of World War II. Players can measure their tactical skills against several opponents in big multiplayer battles or against enemies in a challenging single-player campaign. Steel Division: Normandy 44 allows players to take control over legendary military divisions from six different countries, such as the American 101st Airborne, the German armored 21st Panzer or the 3rd Canadian Division, during the invasion of Normandy in 1944.

Main 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.

From commanding historically accurate infantry, tanks, and vehicles, to troop positioning and real-time engagement with the enemy, players will need to be clever and resourceful in order to win. Every unit counts as the battle presses on, and raw firepower alone will not be enough to claim victory. Whether viewing the entire battle from an aerial perspective, or following a single tank into a firefight, players will need to cleverly manage the dynamic front line in order to execute ambushes and advances.
