There’s no doubt that Steel Division: Normandy 44 is a niche title, but Paradox Interactive specialise in carving out little niches. Eugen Systems are known for their rather hardcore Wargame real time strategy series, but console gamers might remember the WW2 strategy game RUSE. Steel Division sees Eugen returning to World War 2, but doing so with absolute historical accuracy in mind.
Today’s announcement sees them set a 23rd May release date for the game, with pre-orders going live today and the announcement of a closed beta test.
We saw the game back at Rezzed, and it’s shaping up rather nicely for strategy fans. You can expect to see our preview some time in the not too distant future.
