It's based off the engine used in ARMA II Operation Arrowhead. It's set in southern Poland during the Soviet offensive in the summer of 1944. We play as Germans or Russians.
The German campaign focuses on slowing down the Soviet advance, while the other wants to cut through as fast as possible. It's not all on foot - players control tanks and aircraft.
"The story takes place in southern Poland during the Soviet Offensive in the summer of 1944. The player takes on the role of a Russian or German infantryman, using teamwork, tactical skill and authentic war machines to battle for victory," reads the press release. It features online play for either co-operative or competitive modes.
"Players can either complete missions cooperatively or compete with each other in special multiplayer modes such as "Capture the Flag" or "Attack and Defense". "Iron Front – Liberation 1944" also includes an extensive mission editor, enabling players to intuitively create their own missions and share them with their friends online, thus guaranteeing that there will never be a shortage of new missions."
