Kalypso rebondit sur le succès du récent film Dunkerque de Christopher Nolan pour consacrer le premier DLC de Sudden Strike 4 à cette partie de la bataille de France. Dans le jeu il s'agira donc, coté Allemand, de d'abord l'emporter à la bataille de Lille, épisode peu connu qui contribua à ralentir la Wehrmacht, puis à s'emparer du port de Dunkerque. Coté Alliés, les joueurs pourront lancer une contre-offensive lors de la bataille d'Ypres-Comines, autre épisode peu connu avec historiquement le même objectif de ralentir l'armée allemande, puis il faudra réussir à évacuer le plus possible de soldats lors de l'inévitable opération Dynamo.
En plus de ces scénarios, qui auront au moins pour mérite d'être originaux, cette petite extension proposera 10 nouvelles unités.
Pour plus d'informations sur Sudden Strike 4 - Road to Dunkirk, dont la sortie est prévue ce 20 octobre, voyez le communiqué suivant et cette fiche sur Steam.
Au passage sachez que depuis sa sortie Sudden Strike 4 a bénéficié de trois mises à jour, la dernière ajoutant un mode multijoueurs supplémentaire ainsi que deux cartes multijoueurs. Cela en plus de diverses optimisations de l'IA et de la stabilité du jeu (cf. si besoin le changelog par ici).
Bracknell UK, 10th October 2017
Following on from the successful launch of Sudden Strike 4 on Windows, Linux, Mac and PlayStation®4, Kalypso Media is excited to reveal the first official DLC expansion for its WW2 strategy heavyweight. Sudden Strike 4: The Road to Dunkirk will launch for Windows PC, Linux, Mac and PlayStation®4 via digital distribution platforms on 20th October. The DLC offers four new singleplayer missions based around one of the most intense and dramatic conflicts in the entire war, as the Allied forces made a desperate bid to rescue British, French and Belgian troops trapped in the eponymous French town, surrounded by the German army with seemingly no hope for escape.
In the German side of the campaign, players must break through the French defenses in the Battle of Lille to capture the town of Dunkirk and ultimately hunt down and destroy a British battleship. In the Allied campaign, players will launch a counter-offensive during the Battle of Ypres-Comines and attempt to evacuate as many soldiers as possible during Operation Dynamo itself. To aid in the battle, players will have two new commanders to choose from: French war hero Charles de Gaulle and British Expeditionary Force division commander Harold Alexander, further adding to your strategic options for each mission.
Last but not least, Sudden Strike 4: Road to Dunkirk will also see the introduction of 10 all-new units for players to deploy, including the German SIG 33 Bison artillery, the French Char B1 heavy tank, the British A10 Cruiser Mk. II medium tank and destroyer HMS Ivanhoe.
Sudden Strike 4: Road to Dunkirk will be available as DLC for the Windows PC, Mac, Linux and PlayStation®4 versions of Sudden Strike 4 on 20th October 2017 via digital distribution platforms for £7.99GBP / $9.99USD / €9.99EUR.
