Steel Division: Normandy 44

Another military strategy game in the publishing catalogue of Paradox Interactive, this one developed by the French studio Eugen Systems. Steel Division: Normandy 44 draws much inspiration from the Wargame series created earlier by the same developer, letting players take part in fights over Normandy in 1944. The game features playable armies of such nations as Nazi Germany, the United States, France, Canada, England, Scotland, and Poland. Steel Division: Normandy 44 puts much emphasis on realism, therefore real-time battles are split into three phases, which correspond to actual WWII skirmishes. While moving from one stage of battle to another you get access to new types of units, of which there are now 400 in the game, all based on historical data. Infantry, tanks and support vehicles are also aided by airplanes. Devising a proper tactic serves a key role in the game – the most important things you must consider are the landscape and morale of your soldiers. Too much stress reduces the combat effectiveness of your men and can even make them flee in panic. Steel Division: Normandy 44 lets you play either solo (throughout the campaign) or in multiplayer – up to twenty players can play together in online battles.

Mechanics

Steel Division: Normandy 44 is a battle strategy, which expands on gameplay mechanics of the Wargame series, however, it drops modern warfare, featured in those games, for the World War II. As the title suggests, the game focuses on the fights waged in Normandy in 1944.

Battles are played in real time and are characterized by their huge scale. Combat mechanics are deeply rooted in realism, letting you use tactics that were common during that period. Devising a proper tactics, positioning of your troops, and flanking are keys to victory. Soldier behavior is based on the system of morale – too much stress reduces your men’s combat effectiveness or can even make them flee in panic. Authors also took care for maximum realism of locations by creating terrains based on authentic recon maps from the period.

At the beginning of each stage of a battle you get access to new types of units. For example, initially, you only have the fast, light tanks, while heavy vehicles only come in at the beginning of the third phase.

The game includes over 400 units, which were meticulously recreated, based on historical data. Apart from infantry, tanks and support vehicles you can also send in planes. They comprise the playable armies of such nations as Germany, the United States, France, Canada, England, Scotland, and Poland.
