Steel Division ’44 Trailer Hits

Posted on 31 Mar 2017 by

Ah, the not-so-tranquil plains of France, where a barrel sticks out of every hedgerow and beyond any hill crest can lie an ambush just waiting to happen.

It is this beautiful landscape that will feature in Paradox Interactives newest announced title, Steel Division – Normandy ’44, under development at Eugen Systems. Playing out like a mixture of Wargame and R.U.S.E., this strategy title will place players into the shoes of an Allied or Axis commander on the Western Front in 1944.

The first glimpse of Steel Division can be had with the above trailer, showing some Beta footage of the current build. Obviously rough in places, the trailer nonetheless shows what could be in store for future players, with tanks, infantry, planes and AA vying for control over the battlefield. I just feel bad for that poor Grasshopper recon plane….

If you want to see more of Steel Division – Normandy ’44, check out the developers Twitch stream on the following days: Friday, March 31st , 11:00 GMT: Live Multiplayer and Saturday, April 1st, 11:30 GMT: Live Multiplayer.
