game release date for PC:
Steel Division 2 is a war strategy set in the World War II. The game is a direct sequel to the Steel Division: Normandy 44, released in 2017, which allowed players to fight in Normandy in 1944. Both games were developed by Eugen Systems, the developers of Wargame series and titles such as R.U.S.E. and Act of Aggression.
Steel Division 2 takes place on the eastern front of the World War II and gives players a chance to participate in Operation Bagration which took place in 1944 - it was a massive Soviet counter-attack, in which the Polish army also participated. It lasted several weeks and stopped on the right shore of the Vistula river, near Warsaw - at that time, the citizens of that city were fighitng in the uprising. The game offers hundreds of hours of fun in single and multi-player modes.
The most important and completely new element present in Steel Division 2 is a dynamic single player war campaign in which we command the entire army on huge maps with a maximum size of 150 by 100 kilometres. In turn-based mode, which takes place on the on the general map of a battlefield (one turn is half a day during the game), we manage units, take care of supply lines and prepare a strategy. In real time, we participate in direct fights with the opponent. Due to the scale of the campaign and the dynamics of the battles, replaying the same missions will often require fresh approach, vigilance and flexibility.
The multiplayer mode offers 10v10 clashes, as well as the option to cooperate with others. There are 25 maps and many variants of skirmishes for those willing to play matches with other players.
An unquestionable advantage of Steel Division 2 is its historical authenticity. The models of equipment and soldiers who fought on the eastern front were prepared with great attention to details. The developers had the same approach to the projects of the environment and the AI of the units.
