Along with some screenshots, Deep Silver announced Iron Front - Liberation 1944, a new game in the works at X1 Software and powered by the engine of ArmA II: Operation Arrowhead by Bohemia Interactive.

The player takes on the role of a Russian or German infantryman, using teamwork, tactical skill and authentic war machines to battle for victory. The German campaign focuses on slowing the advance of the Soviet troops, while the Soviet campaign is all about breaking through the enemy's resistance. Using their computers, tacticians will control tanks, including the famous German battle tank Panzerkampfwagen VI or Königstiger and the Russian Stalin tank JS2, or fighter planes such as the Focke Wulf 190 and dive bombers like the Stuka or the Petlyakov PE-2. Players can either complete missions cooperatively or compete with each other in special multiplayer modes such as "Capture the Flag" or "Attack and Defense". Iron Front - Liberation 1944 also includes an extensive mission editor, enabling players to create their own missions and share them with their friends online. Iron Front - Liberation 1944 is due to be available exclusively for the PC in Q4 2011.

Press release:
This fall, Deep Silver and X1 Software send fans of tactical gameplay and shooters back to 1944 in "Iron Front – Liberation 1944". The location? Southern Poland during the Soviet Offensive in the summer of that year, when the infantry and tank units of the Red Army and the Wehrmacht engaged in fierce combat. "Iron Front – Liberation 1944" is based on the engine of ARMA II Operation Arrowhead by Bohemia Interactive.

The player takes on the role of a Russian or German infantryman, using teamwork, tactical skill and authentic war machines to battle for victory. The German campaign focuses on slowing the advance of the Soviet troops, while the Soviet campaign is all about breaking through the enemy's resistance. However, the player does not have to do all this on foot: Using their computers, tacticians will control tanks, including the famous German battle tank Panzerkampfwagen VI or "Königstiger" and the Russian Stalin tank JS2, or fighter planes such as the Focke Wulf 190 and dive bombers like the Stuka or the Petlyakov PE-2.

Online is where the battle really heats up in "Iron Front – Liberation 1944": Players can either complete missions cooperatively or compete with each other in special multiplayer modes such as "Capture the Flag" or "Attack and Defense". "Iron Front – Liberation 1944" also includes an extensive mission editor, enabling players to intuitively create their own missions and share them with their friends online, thus guaranteeing that there will never be a shortage of new missions.

"Iron Front – Liberation 1944" is due to be released exclusively for the PC in the fourth quarter of 2011.

I feared that the Liberation was abandoned.
As a WWII Freak can't wait to play the game. :-D I hope there will be a mission editor and modding tools like in ArmA 2.
Good luck with the game!

Iron Front – Liberation 1944 Out In May!

    Quote :
    There’s definitely room for a simplified but not simplistic Arma II; big, intense, multi-layered battles but maybe a bit easier to pick up and play. I’m hoping that’s the route Iron Front – Liberation 1944 is taking, although the more I read about it the more Arma-ish it seems. It uses the Arma II: Operation Arrowhead engine to set the battles between the German and Russian forces in motion. I can be disappointing and excited at the same time, right?

    So there will be big battles, infantry to air and all inbetween, using all of Bohemia‘s engine’s nuances, the damage models, ballistics, crumbly environments, to build their conflict on. The player will ascend the command chain, eventually ordering the troops that they were part of around the combat. It really does sound very closely related to its engine daddy.

    We’ll see in May the 25th if it’s just a reskin of the rewardingly obtuse Arma II, or something that runs along its own track.

I didn't understand a word that was being said! Why couldn't it be in French or even Farsi.

Either way, many thanks for that great update.

I've been meaning to do it but I'm far too busy as of late.
