Steel Division is 50% off for Steam Autumn Sale

Steel Division: Normandy 44 is on sale for 50% off until next Tuesday for Steam Autumn Sale! Since the release back in May, we've added a lot of free content to the game: new game modes, news Aces and much more. Here are the newest additions.


SIX NEW UNITS
As scheduled in the content roadmap, Back in Black features the free unit pack! Now available for the Allies, the very rare Firefly 1C, the F-6CRecon aircraft, the French Volontaires, and the Brittish Ox & Bucks. On the Axis side, you'll be able to deploy the 10,5cm leFH-18/40 auf GW Lorraine Schlepper(f), as well as the 105mm le.FH 18M howitzer.


BREAKTHROUGH NOW IN 2v2
Since the announcement of Breakthrough, the first Attack/Defense scenarios, you guys requested to make it playable in 2v2, and guess what? Now you can! The two maps Cheux & Colombelles can now be played with up to 4 players or against AI.


BALANCING & MORE
Back in Black also includes balancing (as always, made possible with the help from our community), mainly focused on the Second Wave's divisions and adjusting Breakthrough's. We also have added the save game feature for Breakthrough, reworked FXs in Insane mode, and, of course, fixed a bunch of remaining bugs.


Continuous support on our games is part of our DNA, and Steel Division: Normandy 44 is no different. We are planning more free content until January 2018: coop mission pack and more to be announced.
Just keep an eye on the content roadmap page, updates are coming!

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.
