Back to News Listing Order of Battle: Pacific takes off!

Posted: Friday, October 25, 2013 by Filippo Chianetta

Type: Press Release

 

On the morning of December 7, 1941, the Japanese Empire launched its surprise strike on the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor. Intended as a preventive action to avoid any interference from the American fleet in Southeast Asia, where Japan was planning to take military action against Allied countries, it actually triggered the American entry into World War II in both the Pacific and European theaters.

It was a shocking event in American history, but it led to an even worse one for Japan: the dropping of the first atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

However, what would have happened if Japan was able to win the war? And what if the Allied forces would have invaded Japan?

Soon, thanks to The Artistocrats (www.the-artistocrats.com), founded by members of the team who created Panzer Corps, you will be able to take lead of both the American and Japan armies in a dynamic series of campaigns for supremacy in Order of Battle: Pacific!

Order of Battle: Pacific is a turn-based wargamefeaturing an intuitive UI and great depth; sporting a rich 3D world with gorgeous animations and effects that can be turned off with a special option in order to use a classic boardgame display mode with unit counters. Adding to this, if the multiple scenarios are not enough for you, there is an extensive, user-friendly in-game scenario editor with a what-you-see-is-what-you-get design. And if it is still not enough, the game features hundreds of Units, 60 Commanders, Army Specializations and 4 player multiplayer possibility over PBEM++ and hotseat, supporting last-man-standing, teamplay and cooperative against AI scenarios.

Order of Battle: Pacific will be available for PC, Mac, iOS and Android.
