Announcing Theatre of War 2 : Kursk 1943! And video teaser

22 December 2009: Theatre of War 2 : Kursk 1943! Battlefront.com and 1C Company proudly announce the next major release in the Theatre of War series of authentic World War Two tactical combat simulation - Theatre of War 2 : Kursk 1943!

Theatre of War 2: Kursk 1943 is a completely new game and does not require any of the previous games to play!

The Battle of Kursk lasted for forty nine days, from July 5 until August 23, 1943 and has made its way into history as the biggest armored battle of WWII, and in fact of history. It was the last armored strategic offensive the Germans were able to mount in the east. The resulting decisive Soviet victory gave the Red Army the strategic initiative for the rest of the war.

Theatre of War 2 : Kursk 1943 boasts many new features for the first time in the series, such as brand new multiplayer modes and a built-in campaign generator, allowing users to create random missions on the fly!

The game features over 20 new story-based missions with historical military commanders such as Major General Walter Hoerlein and Lieutenant General Ivan Chistyakov . 40 types of military weaponry (including air defense guns, missile launchers, and mortars), new vehicles and thirty types of small arms will be available in both the single player campaigns and the brand new multiplayer modes. Theatre of War 2 : Kursk 1943 is already in late beta stage and is planned to be released, exclusively from www.battlefront.com, by the end of January/early February!
