Blitzkrieg 2 Expansion to Focus on Collapse of the Third Reich

Continuing its longstanding tradition of supporting fans through high-quality expansions for its key franchise titles, CDV Software Entertainment today announced the upcoming release of Blitzkrieg 2: Fall of the Reich for the PC. Fall of the Reich, the first stand-alone expansion for the recently released Blitzkrieg 2 historical RTS, is scheduled to ship to North American retailers in late September 2006.

Blitzkrieg 2: Fall of the Reich spans three major offensives from the final days of fighting on the Eastern front and covers both the Soviet and German campaigns in the long "Siege of Budapest," "Fortress Kurland," and the Soviet "Operation Bagration." Sixteen historically based missions across 10 new maps will challenge beginning and veteran strategists as they try to either capture or defend the remnants of the German war machine during the final days of World War II in Europe.

CDV Software Entertainment is dedicated to publishing and distributing top-notch video games worldwide. The publicly traded company, founded and headquartered in Karlsruhe, Germany, has its North American offices located in New Jersey and North Carolina, and partners with leading distribution partners across the globe. As publisher of critically acclaimed titles like Codename: Panzers, Divine Divinity, American Conquest, Combat Mission, War Front: Turning Point, Cossacks and the Blitzkrieg series, CDV is Europe's foremost publisher of PC strategy titles.
