About Men of War

See World War Two from three different sides - Russian, Allied and German– as you command entire armies and plot your battle strategies across epic maps based on real-life locations. 

Men of War takes place across the globe during the height of World War II and features three different campaigns, each with their own unique units, vehicles and missions. From the Russian missions starring two students fresh to the horrors of war, players are soon catapulted into massive battles with dozens of units under their command.

In addition to the in-depth single player experience, Men of War also unleashes a range of multiplayer maps based on the main missions along with action-packed‘capture the flag’ and‘high-value cargo’ modes.
