COMMAND YOUR TROOPS IN THE SINGLE PLAYER MEN OF WAR DEMO
MOSCOW, Russia - February 18, 2009 - 1C Company, 505 Games and Aspyr Media are pleased to announce that a single-player demo for the World War II strategy title Men of War is now available for download from www.menofwargame.com. It gives a first taste of the epic campaign coming to gamers when the title is released on PC.
The demo features the entire opening stage of the Russian campaign, which sees a small unit from the Red Army taking on the might of the Germans. This initial mission helps players to come to grips with the controls before culminating in a tightly fought battle between a Russian tank and a convoy of German vehicles.
There's also an opportunity to try out Men of War's "direct control" feature during the demo. This enables you to maneuver units using the directional keys, rather than pointing and clicking. Players can get behind the controls of a tank to smash through obstacles, crush soldiers under its tracks and fire armor-piercing shells at enemy emplacements.
Men of War takes place across the globe during the height of World War II and features four different armies - Russia, America, Germany and the British - each with their own unique units, vehicles and missions. From the Russian missions starring two student comrades innocent to the horrors of war, players are soon catapulted into massive battles with dozens of units under their command.
Men of War will be released exclusively on PC in North America by Aspyr, in association with the 1C label, in Q2 of 2009. To download the demo, please visit the Men of War website - www.menofwargame.com - and click on the 'downloads' section.
