Our forward scout in the realms of war, Sgt. Stone, has pointed out to me that Deep Silver and X1 Software have announced their new game, Iron Front. What is interesting about this is that it is an all-encompassing soldier sim set on the Eastern Front in World War II, using the Arma II engine. Oh my. It’s going to have a big old campaign filled with infantryman experiences, but also – and the phrasing here made me smile – “Using their computers, tacticians will control tanks, including the famous German battle tank Panzerkampfwagen VI or “Königstiger” and the Russian Stalin tank JS2, or fighter planes such as the Focke Wulf 190 and dive bombers like the Stuka or the Petlyakov PE-2.”
The game is out later this year, and we’ll bring you more details on it when we can procure them.
