Kalypso and Kite Games have announced the Sudden Strike series is making its triumphant return in its upcoming game, Sudden Strike 4.
Sudden Strike 4 features three extensive campaigns set within the theater of World War II as players will command British and American, German, or Soviet troops. Over 100 different units are available in Sudden Strike 4, including the German bomber Heinkel He111, the Russian T-34 tank, the British Hawker Typhoon fighter plane and the German Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger. Players will be given the opportunity to choose from one of nine commanders, each of which offer different approaches to battles and unique abilities.
“Kalypso continues its tradition of reviving and invigorating classic titles and IPs, and the excitement surrounding the announce of Sudden Strike 4 cannot be understated,” says Simon Hellwig, Kalypso Media’s global director. “The team at Kite Games consists of many talented individuals with an outstanding pedigree with World War II RTS titles, and the commitment and passion they are pouring into Sudden Strike 4 confirms that Kite Games is the perfect partner to bring this revered series back to the forefront of the RTS community.”
Sudden Strike 4 will have 20 single-player scenarios to complete, a skirmish mode that will challenge your RTS abilities, and a competitive multiplayer mode. Players who use clever and perform tactical plays will be rewarded with either skill points or bonus content, such as historical film footage.
Sudden Strike 4 is currently available to pre-purchase on Steam, which is available for 15% off its full price. Not only will pre-orders receive a small discount, customers will also receive an exclusive skirmish map “The Battle of Kursk,” a digital copy of the game’s soundtrack, and an official digital art book.
Sudden Strike is scheduled to release on PC, Mac, Linux, and PlayStation 4 in Spring 2017.
