Indie Croatian developer Maxim Games has announced today their debut turn-based strategy title, Klotzen! Panzer Battles. A World War II hex-based wargame, Klotzen! Panzer Battles has over 600 unit types and more than 60 historical combat scenarios.
Those 600 unit types are divided into 22 unit classes -- including infantry, tanks, fighter planes, bombers, submarines, battleships, and more -- which can all be used in dynamic military campaigns, allowing you to change the course of history.
Zoran Stanic, Lead Developer of Maxim Games, says: “We’re very excited to bring Klotzen! Panzer Battles to PC later this year. It’s a game where you can literally change the course of military history with ‘what-if’ based scenarios. We’re focusing on a feature set that delivers a realistic player experience, where aspects like unit customization, unit development and the way air and sea units can be utilized to bring something fresh to WW2 turn based strategy games.”
Those missions take places in maps that range from 200 km to over 1000 km in size, from the "snow-covered Eastern front to the scorching, unforgiving desert of North Africa". Unlike Civilization's abstract design, each hex of Klotzen! Panzer Battles represents 20 km, giving you a bit of perspective on the size of the conflict.
Klotzen! Panzer Battles also features 80 commander skills that allow you customise your units, and comes with a both a historical scenario mode and free campaign where you can choose to play as either Axis or Allied forces.
Klotzen! Panzer Battles is out on Summer 2018, on Steam.
