Players will take command of an entire army including ground troops, artillery, tank divisions and aircraft in all out strategic assaults. Up to 1,000 units can be controlled at once. The single-player mode can be played out in two campaigns - American versus German forces on the western front and German versus Russian on the eastern front - missions will be based on key historic events and operations from 1944. Each campaign features completely different storylines, missions, objectives and environments.
John Yamamoto, president of Square Enix, conveyed his feelings about the game : "Order of War offers an exciting opportunity to enter this hugely popular genre, and is a strong proposition for our first western developed release. With its cinematic intensity, hugely realistic battles and historical accuracy, the game looks set to whet the appetite of any war gaming fan."
Order of War’s official website is available at http://www.orderofwar.com. Expect it to be released across all territories in Automn 2009. [April 20, 2009]
