Independent developer Maxim Games' debut title, Klotzen! Panzer Battles, is scheduled for release on PC this Summer.
Klotzen! Panzer Battles is a World War 2 turn based operational strategy game based on a hex based map system. Maxim says the game offers a challenging turn based combat experience that tests the battle-hardened skills of strategy fans as they look to take on a wide variety of historic military scenarios from the second World War.
Players will conduct campaigns in more than 60 different historical scenarios that are based on real-life military campaigns from the war. The game includes a variety of map sizes, ranging from 200 km to over 1000 km in size, and covers terrain from the snow-covered Eastern front to the scorching, unforgiving desert of North Africa. Furthermore, the game features more than 600 unit types divided into 22 unit classes. This includes infantry, tanks and tank hunters, fighter planes, bombers, submarines, battleships, and more.
“We’re very excited to bring Klotzen! Panzer Battles to PC later this year. It’s a game where you can literally change the course of military history with ‘what-if’ based scenarios”, said Zoran Stanic, Lead Developer of Maxim Games. “We’re focusing on a feature set that delivers a realistic player experience, where aspects like unit customization, unit development and the way air and sea units can be utilized to bring something fresh to WW2 turn based strategy games.”
Klotzen! Panzer Battles will release sometime this Summer exclusively on PC.
