Developed by Nival Interactive, Blitzkrieg 2 takes everything gamers loved about the original game and kicks it up to a whole new level. Players take on the role of German, American and Russian WWII battlefield commanders modeled after their real-world counterparts as they command more than 250 types of historically accurate troops, including 60 varieties of ground infantry. A new, fully 3D graphics engine displays battlefield action in all its visual glory as Russian Katyusha rocket launchers light up the night sky with fiery rocket volleys, Stuka bombers drop their deadly payloads on ground units and artillery annihilates opposing structures.
