Sudden Strike 4 sends you off on three extensive campaigns set amongst the battlefields of World War 2. Commanding the British and American, German or Soviet troops, you will lead over 100 different units into battle; like 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 strategic expertise in over 20 demanding single-player scenarios, the challenge-focused skirmish mode and the ultra-competitive multiplayer mode. Excellence will be rewarded through a unique reward system, where successfully completing missions will unlock exclusive content, such as historical film footage from 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!
Sudden Strike 4: Road to Dunkirk features two new mini-campaigns with four new singleplayer missions based on the events surrounding the famous rescue of Allied soldiers in the eponymous French coastal town of Dunkirk during “Operation Dynamo”. In the German campaign, you must successfully break through the valiant French defenses in the Battle of Lille, capture the town of Dunkirk and move on to destroy a British battleship. In the Allied campaign, you will launch the British counter-offensive during the Battle of Ypres-Comines and consequently evacuate as many soldiers as possible during “Operation Dynamo”. Two new Allied doctrine commanders to choose from: French war hero Charles de Gaulle and British Expeditionary Force division commander Harold Alexander complete your strategic options in tackling each mission. Sudden Strike 4: Road to Dunkirk introduces over 10 all-new units to the game, including the German SIG 33 Bison artillery, the French Char B1 heavy tank, the British A10 Cruiser Mk. II medium tank and destroyer HMS Ivanhoe.
