/ /

*MOSCOW**, Russia** - January 31, 2008* - Leading Eastern and Central
European publisher 1C Company today announced the development of its new
World War II strategy game /Men of War/. /Men of War/ is the sequel to
the critically acclaimed /Soldiers: Heroes of World War II /and /Faces
of War/ and is scheduled for a summer 2008 release around the world.

/Men of War/ takes place in Europe during the height of World War II.
The story unfolds across three different campaigns played out through
the eyes of Soviet, Allied and German soldiers. Each campaign has its
own structured timeline bringing a different story of the war to life
spanning across Russia, North Africa, Ukraine, Greece, Germany, Italy
and the Pacific. The main Soviet campaign sees two student comrades,
Smirnov and Kuznetzov, join the army and quickly become brothers in arms
as they rise through the ranks and experience the rigors of war.

/Men of War/ will feature 50 new units to play, including newly designed
tanks, APCs and heavy guns. Dynamic, in-game video enhances the single
player missions, while developer Best Way has given the sounds of war
new range with over one hundred new effects, recorded under real
operating conditions. The single player campaign will also feature a
fully customizable user interface so players are able to set-up their
command layout as they please.

In addition to the in-depth single player experience, /Men of War/ also
unleashes all new multiplayer maps along with new 'capture the flag' and
'high-value cargo' modes, all faithfully recreated with stunning
graphics and refined AI. A new rating system has also been introduced to
ensure a fair fight in online multiplayer battles.

comprising 19 missions in total
