Wanted - the world's best "Rush for Berlin" player!

Rush for Berlin Multiplayer demo now available





New York, USA (May 24, 2006) - Paradox Interactive and Stormregion announced today the release of the multiplayer demo for "Rush for Berlin" and the official tournament for the game.

Over the coming weeks, players from different countries will play off against each other in a worldwide tournament that will determine who is the "Best Rush for Berlin Player"! The ladder competition will play out on Gamespy Arena and the winners will share hundreds of dollars worth of prizes!

To prepare for the tournament up to 4 players can practise multiplayer matches with the demo either over LAN, Direct IP or GameSpy. Furthermore it will be possible to play the maps of the demo solo against up to three AI enemies. Each of the three factions of the full game are available in the demo, each offering its own unique strengths and weaknesses: The Allies with a higher availability of resources, the germans with a higher technology level and the russians with faster and cheaper infantry production.

The multiplayer demo of "Rush for Berlin" offers two of the five modes available in the full game: Deathmatch and R.U.S.H.

R.U.S.H (Relentlessly Utilized Score Hunt)

This mode works on the same principles as the game itself: players rush for given target(s) to occupy various objects, which yield points. Whoever scores the most points in a given time period OR reaches the preset score limit wins. Each object grants a one-time bonus to the team which captures it first (and a reduced bonus if the object is destroyed).

Deathmatch

Fight your way through the enemy front - against your friends or against the AI. The only goal is to eliminate any and all units belonging to other players - or teams.

Demo and access to the tournament are available on Fileplanet: http://www.fileplanet.com/promotions/rfb/demo/

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 begins, MAY 2006. For further information on the latest hit from the creators of Panzers, please visit http://www.rushforberlin.com
