The game Close Combat: Invasion Normandy recreates the reality of this historic battle from the point of view of the soldiers involved in the liberation of Europe. As an American commander you have to fight your way from Normandy beaches to Cherbourg harbor, which must be taken before the end of June. The German commander, on the other hand, must keep the American troops on the beach for as long as possible and expect support, and after receiving it he must try to push the allied forces back to the sea.

The tactical game is conducted in real time. In an extensive campaign, we move through many branches on the strategic map of the Cherbourg area. Success or failure in individual battles is of great importance for the continuity of the campaign, which affects the further actions of each party. Realistic shooting conditions have been introduced, taking into account the range of sight and shot, direct and indirect shooting, and ammunition restrictions. Thanks to the advanced AI, stress, fatigue and morale have a direct impact on soldiers and how they react. Scenario generator allows you to create your own campaigns. Realistically rendered sound effects, so that each weapon has its own distinctive sound. Multiplayer mode gives you the ability to face other players on special web servers.
