Sudden Strike 4 gameplay trailer gives a glimpse at the tactics involved

Kalypso Media is thrilled to present the new gameplay trailer for Sudden Strike 4, showing the latest glimpses of gameplay from the return of the legendary RTS franchise in all its glory. As well as new footage of single and multiplayer modes, this trailer demonstrates the return of the optional “pause and play” system, allowing players to suspend the action while they issue detailed commands and maneuvers to their units.

Also shown is one of the most significant new features of Sudden Strike 4 — commanders. Players may now for the first time select from nine historically accurate commanders, each of whom has their own unique abilities, perks and skill trees to unlock.

Developed as a fully-fledged series entry and not a remake or reboot, Sudden Strike 4 sends you off on three extensive campaigns set amongst the battlefields of World War II. Commanding the British and American, German or Soviet troops, you will lead over 100 different units into battle, including the German bomber Heinkel He111, the Russian T-34 tank, the British Hawker Typhoon fighter plane and the notorious German Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger. In a first for the Sudden Strike series, you can now choose from one of nine individual commanders, such as George Patton or Bernard Montgomery, who will each allow for different approaches to combat and boast unique abilities.

Prove your tactical expertise in over twenty demanding single player scenarios, the challenge-focused skirmish mode and the competitive multiplayer mode. A new reward system for clever and tactical play awards the player with skill points and unlocks bonus content, such as historical film footage of the era.

Sudden Strike 4 offers countless ways to vanquish your opponents. Exploit the weak spots of tanks, set up an ambush, occupy buildings with infantry, outmaneuver the enemy with clever positioning or unleash devastating air strikes — how you approach each mission is up to you!
