A revival of the Sudden Strike series has been revealed. Kalypso Media and Kite Games are ready to give you a WWII battle simulator that you’ll never forget. The last game in the series came out back in 2008, so it’ll be interesting to see if the reboot is able to deliver. Check out their reveal trailer.
Sudden Strike 4 is a historically accurate real-time strategy game. You can pick from one of nine commanders, and lead more than 100 types of battlefield units (including tanks, soldiers, planes) across three campaigns with over 20 missions. The game’s reward system praises players who play intelligently, giving them skill points and historical footage in return. If solo style action (which includes a skirmish mode) wasn’t enough for you, there will be a multiplayer battle mode that supports up to 8 players, in addition to modding support via Steam Workshop for PC.
“Kalypso continues its tradition of reviving and invigorating classic titles and IPs, and the excitement surrounding the announce of Sudden Strike 4 cannot be understated,” said Global Director of Kalypso Media Simon Hellwig. “The team at Kite Games consists of many talented individuals with an outstanding pedigree with World War II RTS titles, and the commitment and passion they are pouring into Sudden Strike 4 confirms that Kite Games is the perfect partner to bring this revered series back to the forefront of the RTS community.”
Sudden Strike 4 is coming Spring 2017 for PC (Mac, Linux) and PS4. For updates during the game’s development, check out their website, Twitter, and Facebook. Pre-order the game and you get ‘The Battle for Kursk’ skirmish map, the Official Digital Art Book, and a digital copy of the game’s soundtrack.
