En bref. Alors que la sortie du jeu approche à grand pas, Kalypso diffuse une vidéo présentant de nouveaux extraits du gameplay vu cette fois du coté des forces allemandes. L’occasion d’apercevoir différents types d’unités (ex : Tiger, Panther, Elefant, variantes de Panzers, …) et de mécanismes (ex : réparation et réapprovisionnement en munitions, unités capitulant si dépassées par le nombre), ainsi que par exemple un passage d’une mission dans le cadre des Ardennes, puis d’une autre pendant l’opération Barbarossa. Le prochain épisode de cette série de vidéos, qui ne saurait tarder, concernera les forces soviétiques.

About Sudden Strike 4
Developed as a fully-fledged series entry and not a remake or reboot, Sudden Strike 4 sends you off on three extensive campaigns set amongst the battlefields of World War II. Commanding the British and American, German or Soviet armies, you will lead over 100 different units into battle, including the German Heinkel He111 bomber, the Russian T-34 tank, the British Hawker Typhoon fighter plane and even the notorious German Panzerkampfwagen VI “Tiger”.
In a first for the Sudden Strike series, you can now choose from one of nine individual commanders, such as George Patton or Bernard Montgomery, whose unique military doctrines unlock valuable command and combat abilities for your troops.
Prove your tactical expertise in over 20 demanding single player scenarios, the challenge-focused skirmish mode, and the competitive multiplayer mode. A new reward system awards the player for clever play with skill points and bonus unlockable content.
Sudden Strike 4 offers countless ways to vanquish your opponents. Exploit the weak spots of tanks, set up an ambush, occupy buildings with infantry and snipers, out manoeuvre the enemy with clever positioning or unleash devastating air support – how you approach each mission is up to you!
Sudden Strike 4 is scheduled for a worldwide release on Steam on 11th August 2017,
as well as via retail in UK and European export territories.
The North American retail release will then follow on Tuesday, 15th August.

About Sudden Strike 4
Sudden Strike 4 holds true to many of its traditional (and differentiating) gameplay elements that are the hallmark of the series, such as a focus on careful unit preservation and tactical exploitation of strength vs. weakness – rather than resource gathering and replacement unit construction.
This installment is not only a perfect return for long-standing fans of the series but also an excellent first introduction for a new audience to one of the best World War II RTS experiences available, particularly on console, where similar titles are few and far between. Regardless of platform, executing masterful military maneuvers in Sudden Strike 4 is almost effortless, limited only by your and your opponent’s strategic prowess.
