Africa: Desert War is now available
on Steam, offering a new add-on for the Windows, Linux, and macOS editions
of Sudden Strike 4, the
World War II strategy sequel. Turn off those reruns of Rat Patrol and check out
this launch trailer
for a look at what to expect. Here are the details:
Sudden Strike 4:
Africa – Desert War features two new mini campaigns with six new single player
missions from the North African campaign of World War 2. In the Axis campaign,
you will start the Italian advance on Egypt to take the city of Sidi Barrani,
besiege the city of Tobruk and take over its harbor, as well as break through
the Kasserine Pass in Tunisia. In the Allied campaign, take part in Operation
Compass and retake the village of Sidi Barrani, relive the watershed of the
Western Desert Campaign, the Second Battle of El Alamein, and break through the
German defensive line in the Battle of Mareth. Fight in an unforgiving and harsh
desert setting with sandstorms to challenge your tactical wits.
Along with new campaigns, players can choose from five new doctrine commanders
to lead their troops into battle. On the side of the Axis, armchair generals can
choose from the highly decorated German general Erwin Rommel and three
additional Italian commanders, including renowned field marshal Giovanni Messe.
On the Allies, play as legendary armored division general Sir Richard O’Connor.
As the war heads into new territory, Africa – Desert War introduces over 30 new
vehicles including an all new medical truck, the Marder II Tank Destroyer, the
British Bishop SPG, and the Italian Semovente da 105/25 Assault Gun.
