“Kalypso continues its tradition of reviving and invigorating classic titles and IPs, and the excitement surrounding the announce of Sudden Strike 4 cannot be understated,” says Simon Hellwig, Global Director of Kalypso Media. “The team at Kite Games consists of many talented individuals with an outstanding pedigree with World War II RTS titles, and the commitment and passion they are pouring into Sudden Strike 4 confirms that Kite Games is the perfect partner to bring this revered series back to the forefront of the RTS community.”

Developed as a fully-fledged series entry and not a remake or reboot, Sudden Strike 4 sends you off on three extensive campaigns set amongst the battlefields of World War II. Commanding the British and American, German or Soviet troops, you will lead over 100 different units into battle, including the German bomber Heinkel He111, the Russian T-34 tank, the British Hawker Typhoon fighter plane and the notorious German Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger. In a first for the Sudden Strike series, you can now choose from one of nine individual commanders, such as George Patton or Bernard Montgomery, who will each allow for different approaches to combat and boast unique abilities.

Prove your tactical expertise in over 20 demanding single player scenarios, the challenge-focused skirmish mode, and the competitive multiplayer mode. A new reward system rewards clever and tactical play, awarding the player with skill points and bonus content, such as historical film footage of the era.

Sudden Strike 4 offers countless ways to vanquish your opponents. Exploit the weak spots of tanks, set up an ambush, occupy buildings with infantry, outmanoeuvre the enemy with clever positioning or unleash devastating air strikes – how you approach each mission is up to you!

Feel free to already discuss the game and give us feedback:
what a disappointment Sad

A World War 2 simulation ? Like 1000 other games on Steam ?
No - it's not a disappointment. It depends on the package. Some games give brief moments of excitement followed by sigh of exasperation or a shake of the head and are consigned to "Uninstall", but some are well worth the investment. I have games that I have played for a few hours and given up on. Some of these have had marvellous reviews, others that have been rubbished by the critics I have played for - well longer than I care to remember.

You can't dismiss a game because it falls into the same category has other games, nearly all games fall in the same category has previous games. Most games will give you at least an evening’s entertainment, one way or another, so why not invest. An evening out at the Cinema; food; a drink or two, same price as a game.

Do you stop going to the Cinema because the film falls into the same category has other films?

You can not compare that because this is different quality of entertainment. When Bruce Springsteen was in town earlier this year I went to see him with my lady, each ticket was over EUR 70 (plus six or eight drinks), he played three hours and I consider that well invested money. If I pay half of that for Sudden Strike 4 and get twice as many hours of entertainment out of it I would still consider it a disappointment.

I am not a cinema person but putting myself into the shoes of one I assume this would depend on how I allocate my cinema budget over the year. If I go to the cinema once a week I would certainly not see 52 films about World War 2 over the year. I would more likely watch films of different categories. Same with my budget for computer games. If my budget for that is EUR 100 and I spend EUR 40 on Hearts of Iron 4 it's unlikely I'll invest EUR 50 into Sudden Strike 4 while it is highly likely that I would have pre-ordered Port Royale 4 - even without any reviews out yet.

Maybe calling this a "disappointment" is just because I personally would have expected something else from Kalypso. From most Games Publishers I would not expect anything else than first person shooters, World War 2 games and Fantasy RPGs. For me Kalypso was always something special. Now they announce a World War 2 game and a Fantasy RPGs so now they have become just "mainstream" for me.
You made the right choice Kalypso
