The Fight for Freedom is not Over: Deep Silver Announces the D-Day DLC for Iron Front – Liberation 1944

Larkspur, CA – November 23, 2012 - Deep Silver and X1 Software/AWAR today announced D-Day, an add on pack for the tactical World War II shooter Iron Front – Liberation 1944. The DLC takes the player to the western scene of the war with the Allied armed forces fighting against the German troops in Normandy. D-Day will be released in December 2012 and will be available to North American players via participating Windows PC download partners. 

The DLC pack features new items and troops as well as new scenarios.  Players now can take on the role of American soldiers, pilots and tank crew members and fight for the freedom of France in Normandy. Their armory includes amongst others the M1 Garand Rifle and the BAR machine gun. Assistance from the air provides the P-47 Thunderbolt, whilst the Sherman tank keeps the ground forces in check. The German troops also heightened their arsenal: they now have the Tiger I tank available.

About Iron Front – Liberation 1944

Iron Front – Liberation 1944 is based on the engine of ARMA II Operation Arrowhead by Bohemia Interactive. 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. The German campaign focuses on slowing the advance of the Soviet troops, while the Soviet campaign is all about breaking through the enemy's resistance. However, the player does not have to do all this on foot: 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.

Online is where the battle really heats up in Iron Front – Liberation 1944: Players can complete missions either 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.

Iron Front – Liberation 1944 is available via participating Windows PC download partners for a suggested retail price of $29.99.
