Tribute to the Liberation of Italy, nouveau DLC pour Steel Division 2

En bref. Le sympathique STR d’Eugen Systems n’a pas encore dit son dernier mot. La preuve avec cette nouvelle importante extension se focalisant sur la campagne d’Italie en 1944. Au menu, huit nouvelles divisions à contrôler et quatre nations : l’Afrique du Sud, le Brésil, les deux États rivaux de la péninsule italienne, la République sociale italienne (RSI) affiliée à l’Axe et le Royaume d’Italie, du coté des Alliés. Au total ce sont pas moins de 300 nouvelles unités qui rejoignent les rangs, dont de nombreux modèles de véhicules italiens.

A noter que cet add-on fait en quelque sorte suite au petit DLC Nemesis #3 – Battle of Rimini sorti en janvier l’an dernier. Module qui se déroulait pendant l’Opération Olive, lancée à la mi-septembre 1944, alors que les Alliés tentaient de percer la ligne défensive Gothique tenue par les Allemands sur la côte adriatique.
