It’s been a long wait, but it’s almost over. The anticipation started to build before Christmas when the game appeared to be almost complete. Years in development, Mark H. Walker’s Lock’n Load Heroes of Stalingrad is now set to release on February 12 th.
The game is the most accurate possible digital representation of Lock’n Load’s engaging and immersive playability, while adding features that would be too fiddly or complicated for a board game.
Two story-driven branching campaigns will take players through a series of tactically challenging missions; first by deciding who to take into battle by carefully spending resources, and then by engaging on the battlefield.
The game is of course designed by Mark H. Walker, and programmed by elements of the team responsible for bringing you Panzer General Online. All the graphics are from some of the best board games artist around. David Julien, Marc Schwanebeck, and Nicolas Eskubi have combined to make soldiers, tanks, and maps that pull you into the conflict and won’t let go.
