Panzer Division Games, a new game studio from Croatia has just announced the development of the game Attack at Dawn: North Africa. It will be a real-time wargame set in WW2 North African theatre, featuring 3 campaigns, and 15 scenarios in singleplayer and multiplayer modes. Check out the trailer below:
The game’s large map will cover a distance of almost 2000 kilometres – from the bay of Sirte in Libya, to Suez Canal in Egypt. The terrain will vary between sea, desert and mountains; wadis and sebkhas; villages, birs and ports. The only metallic road in the area.
The designers have researched orders of battle and unit histories for years in preparation for making this game. Special attention was given to the composition of the armies, combat values of individual units and overall authenticity of each scenario.
Large Map – the game features a large map, covering a distance of almost 2000 kilometres – from the bay of Sirte in Libya, to Suez Canal in Egypt. The terrain varies between sea, desert and mountains; wadis and sebkhas; villages, birs and ports. There is one long metallic road – Via Balbia, spanning the whole length of the map. And a handful of well-known desert tracks leading from the road towards the deep Sahara in the south.
Historical Accuracy – the scenarios have been created after studying the historical orders of battle, and battle histories. Attention was given to the composition of the armies, combat values of individual units and overall authenticity of each scenario.
Accurate Scenarios And Campaigns – there are 15 carefully recreated scenarios in the game, which can be played as a solo or multiplayer game, or as a part of a campaign. The game features historical scenarios, and speculative scenarios, depicting the what-if situations from the campaign.
Intensive Gameplay – the game can be played in a real-time, or turn-based (WeGo) mode. That reflects the speed and chaos of the desert mobile warfare. Combine this with the fog of war, and the experience of being in command vehicle of a Panzer Corps comes to life. The game will immerse you in one of the most intensive and nerve-wracking experiences of the Second World War.
