CDV - E3 Line Up
Today CDV has announced their E3 2005 videogame line-up. This year CDV will be showing five games, including one unannounced title (War Leaders: Clash of Nations) available only by appointment, and the eagerly anticipated Codename: Panzers, Phase Two and Blitzkrieg II. It's going to be an exciting line-up for CDV this year, and if you'd like to book an appointment for a booth tour, please let us know, as our appointments are rapidly filling up.
American Conquest: Divided Nation
Divided Nation is the heir to the successful American Conquest RTS series. CDV and GSC GameWorld return to offer the player an opportunity to experience the American Civil War and key events immediately prior to and following the conflict that changed the United States. In Divided Nation, players take on multiple roles in 19th century America, including Civil War General, pirate commander and militia leader in the Texas War of Independence.
Return to the battlefields of World War II in the much anticipated sequel to the award-winning Blitzkrieg. Play as the Soviet Union, Germany or the United States as you command troops through historically inspired battles in an expansive chapter-driven campaign system of over 90 missions. More than 200 unit types are available for action that rages across all new 3D renderings of Northern Africa, Europe, the Eastern Front and the Pacific theatre. Key features include direct control of air forces, naval units and coastal operations, a fully destructible environment, a full-featured editor and the series' trademark attention to detail and historical authenticity.
Codename: Panzers, Phase Two
The Panzers are back on the attack. Phase Two offers gamers everything they enjoyed about the original and then some. This time the player takes command of forces in Northern Africa, the Mediterranean and the Balkans as Axis, Allies or Yugoslavian resistance fighters. Already known for its genre-defying combat action, Phase Two also offers an improved 3D graphics engine and AI for even more amazing, nail-biting game play. Pedigreed Hollywood screenwriters and voice talent provide a compelling, immersive story as the ideal backdrop against which armchair generals compete for supremacy.
War Front: Turning Point
What would happen if Hitler had been assassinated early on in WWII and the German war engine came under control of a new regime? Digital Reality and CDV aim to answer that question in War Front: Turning Point, bringing gamers an "alternate reality" strategy game. Gamers will be exposed to a whole new WWII timeline, new battles and a variety of secret and experimental weapons. Eye-popping graphics and a refreshing plot will keep gamers pinned to their PCs as they attempt to alter or ensure the historical outcome of World War II.
War Leaders: Clash of Nations
In War Leaders, gamers will assume the role of historical commanders, in an attempt to lead their nations to victory in World War II through economic, diplomatic and military means. Players must lead their nations both on and off the battlefield, negotiating with allies while crushing those who dare oppose them.
