About the Game
Top developer Stormregion is going one step further in this release. The 3D real-time strategy game Rush for Berlin depicts what might have happened if a new leadership had faced up to the advancing Allies and Russia, following Hitler's removal from power. What if they had deployed the already developed super weapons?

Your first aim is to win the race for Berlin in 1944 - 1945. Playing on the side of the Americans, will you succeed in hoisting the US flag on the "Reichstag" before the Red Army? Prepare yourself for a visually luxurious strategy hit that focuses on the enjoyment of the game: tactical WWII war gaming full of fresh ideas. Officers have special abilities and acquire new skills at every level. And the time factor will be introduced as a resource in a game for the first time.

Paradox Interactive publishes the World War II title Rush for Berlin in the United States and Canada under license. The race has begun and Rush for Berlin is available in stores. For further information on the latest hit from the creators of Panzers, please visit http://www.rushforberlin.com
