Heroes of Normandie drops onto Steam today

Like Sgt Oddball who saw the last river bridge blown up by Allied fighter-bombers in his binoculars, Heroes of Normandie fans saw the release date of the PC version pushed back a couple of times. But today is the day and finally PC players can get their hands on this adaptation of one of the most engaging and light-hearted board games released recently!

Developer Cat Rabbit has been focused on faithfully reproducing the core mechanics of the original version, which had the feel of a video game : fast-paced turns, a clear set of rules and a wide range of units with specific weapons and abilities. On top of that they introduced crazy characters in a new way from the 3 different armies (USA, Germany and the Commonwealth), and built brand new game modes to make the best use of the gameplay. 6 campaigns, a skirmish mode, 2 very challenging Rogue campaigns and a multiplayer mode where players can select pre-set forces or assemble their own army, come together for a furious and funny tactical experience.

Armchair generals and fans of comedy-war movies alike will surely enjoy commanding Oddball and his nutty friends on the battlefield and facing plenty of situations where dynamite, mortars, bazookas and… cows can turn the tide of an encounter!

A special 33% launch discount is available for a limited time period. We are also going to offer a free Steam key to anyone who bought a copy from the Matrix Games or Slitherine store, once the game is available on this digital platform!
