Fury Software will be giving a free bonus campaign for owners of Strategic Command: WWI The Great War. The new campaign, 1939 Storm over Europe, is currently in development and will be release in the “near future.” Would-be commanders can look forward to a Europe updated to represent 1939 with Germany already at war with France, Poland, and the UK; the USSR eying Poland; Italy building its arms in anticipation of joining the Axis; and the US maintaining its isolationist policies. Hubert Cater of Fury Software also stated that the campaign will be fully customizable with the game’s editor, allowing players to redesign the scenarios or create new ones.
The team is currently busy tackling National Morale within a WWII campaign, the status of Poland and their exiled armed forces, and the efficacy of strategic bombing against Germany.
The extra room for manoeuvre that the grand map provides opens up plenty of exciting opportunities for action. For instance, early in the war players can explore the possibility of France attacking Germany in the autumn before Poland falls, or they can redeploy French forces to defend their country in a different manner to that used in 1940. Can they change the course of the war before Germany is ready to face them in the west?
