D-Day Launches in North America

Company: O3 Games
Product: D-Day

O~3 Entertainment has announced that D-Day, the real-time tactical strategy game for PC, has shipped to retail stores throughout North America. Produced by Monte Cristo and developed by Digital Reality, D-Day has been designated by the ?Normandie M?moire? committee as the official game for the 60th anniversary commemoration of the Normandy landings, and contains a documentary base with the strategic charts of the battles, films from historical archives, as well as veterans? and local inhabitants? testimonies, some of which has not been available before.

?D-Day is a great game for history buffs and tactical strategy fans alike,? said Bill Gardner, president and CEO of O~3 Entertainment. ?The battles are recreated as accurately as is possible in a computer game, and the extras are really spectacular.?

Offering a wealth of single-player and multiplayer modes, D-Day drops players into the role of World War II Allied forces in the final drive to liberate Europe. Throughout three campaigns and 12 missions in single player mode, players must successfully plan and execute the turning points in the liberation of Europe: the first hours of the beach landing at Omaha Beach, the paratrooper attack on Sainte M?re Eglise, the taking of the Cherbourg harbor, Operation Cobra, the battle of the Falaise pocket, and the liberation of Normandy in August 1944. During the campaigns, players can call in the help of resistant forces to recon the landing areas, take advantage of the Allies? air power (bomber, glider, paratroopers), and stop the German forces? counter attacks.

D-Day features more than 60 historically accurate units including rifleman, paratroopers, artillery, tanks, transports, and air support. The multiplayer mode uses GameSpy?s online Matchmaking network, allowing up to eight players to play simultaneously on 12 different maps using three different modes. An editor allows players to create their own multiplayer maps.
