Next update: "Back in Black", featuring free units & 2v2 Attack/Defense


The seventh free update for Steel Division: Normandy 44, "Back in Black", will be available next week, and will feature 6 new units, 2v2 Breakthrough Attack/Defense scenarios, and more! Let’s have a sneak peek.

Free unit pack
It’s not 4 (like initially planned in the content roadmap), but 6 new units that you will be able to deploy on the battlefield:

Axis:
  • 10,5cm leFH-18/40 auf GW Lorraine Schlepper(f) (21. Panzer), self-propelled howitzer
  • leFH 18M (716. Infanterie), the backbone of German divisional artillery


Allied:
  • Sherman IC Firefly (1. Pancerna), a very rare early model of Firefly
  • F-6C (3rd Armored), the Recon version of the P-51C Mustang
  • Volontaires (2ème Division Blindée) - partisans & individuals volunteers that joined the “Leclerc’s Boys”
  • Ox & Bucks (6th Airborne) - Airlanding squads

Keep an eye on our blog tomorrow, more information about these new units is coming!

Free 2v2 Breakthrough Attack/Defense
Well… It’s pretty self-explanatory, right? Since the release of the 4 1v1 Breakthrough Attack/Defense scenarios, we received countless messages asking for 2v2 versions. In “Back in Black”, you will be able to play two of them in this mode:
  • Offensive on Cheux
  • Assault on Colombelles Steelwork
Both will be available in Axis Attack and Allied Attack. If you want to know more about Breakthrough, there is a pretty informative article about it in our blog.


Balancing and more
We also have been working, with selected members of the community, on balancing the game, focusing on adjusting Second Wave's divisions even if the main game divisions will also have some slight changes.

We are also adding a “save game” option to Attack/Defense scenarios, and, as always, fixing remaining bugs.

“Back in Black” will be available next week.

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.
