BASINGSTOKE, ENGLAND (MARCH 16TH 2005) - Following the acclaim of CODENAME: PANZERS PHASE ONE in 2004, World War II strategy gaming masters, CDV SOFTWARE ENTERTAINMENT AG are pleased to announce details that the invasion continues with CODENAME: PANZERS PHASE TWO. Set for release JUNE 2005, the latest PANZERS title will challenge 'gaming generals' to the limit, with new units at their disposal, new theatres of war to engage, new heroes and new strategies to employ. CODENAME: PANZERS PHASE TWO will be priced at £34.99 and exclusively distributed by KOCH MEDIA in the UK.


  • Three captivating campaigns, inspired by key battles of World War II, all of which can be viewed from the perspectives of the Anglo-American Allies, the German-Italian Axis, or the Yugoslavian resistance forces. The action takes players from the sweltering deserts of Africa, to the scenic Italian and Sicilian countryside, and into the former Yugoslavia, famous for its gorgeous yet treacherous heavily forested mountain landscapes.
  • A variety of new and familiar heroes, special missions, optional goals, and a number of surprises all combine to keep game play fresh and challenging with superb replay value.
  • A comprehensive editor allows ambitious players to create their own missions, complete with triggered cut-scenes, scripted events, modified maps and terrain features. The editor even allows modification of units to better match a player's personal preferences.
  • Day-night cycles take on an even greater importance with night time stealth and search and destroy missions. Certain vehicles are now equipped with headlights and taillights that may be switched on to aid their driver's visibility-unfortunately they also disclose one's presence to the enemy.
  • Hundreds of fully destructible object types and buildings comprise the battlegrounds in which units interact even more realistically with the terrain. More than twenty new unit types and variants are introduced, broadening tactical capabilities.
  • An enhanced version of the celebrated Gepard 3D graphics engine renders the environment in genre-defying detail; players can zoom, pan and rotate the camera view for optimal close-up detail or pull back for improved strategic awareness and battle oversight.
  • Rich and diverse linked and stand-alone missions with innovative primary, secondary and secret objectives challenge the player's tactical prowess; rarely will one standard tactic be successful across multiple missions.
  • All missions support competitive and cooperative game play, allowing players to fight against their most dastardly online antagonists or alongside their favourite allies, crushing their enemies on the virtual battlefield.
  • A deeper, richer plot, much of which was written by two acclaimed U.S. screenwriters that have worked on television projects such as Law & Order, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and the upcoming cinema adaptations of the Dungeon Siege game series.
  • Improved, high quality voice-overs were recorded in a premium Los Angeles sound studio; characters now feature established voice talents. Currently in final negotiations with Peter Weller, best known for his roles in Robocop, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension, Naked Lunch and Leviathan.
