Square Enix Ltd., the publisher of Square Enix® interactive entertainment products, today announces a new agreement with strategy game specialist Wargaming.net to publish a brand new IP set during World War II. ORDER OF WAR® will be released on PC in Autumn 2009.
ORDER OF WAR will feature massive scale battles brought to life with a cinematic intensity never seen before in a WWII strategy game. Players will take command of an entire army including ground troops, artillery, tank divisions and aircraft in all out strategic assaults. The single-player mode can be played out in two campaigns - American versus German forces on the western front and German versus Russian on the eastern front - missions will be based on key historic events and operations from 1944.
ORDER OF WAR will be Square Enix's first release of a western developed game outside of Japan, and one which will see the company release the title simultaneously across multiple territories.
John Yamamoto, president and chief executive officer of Square Enix Ltd. comments, "ORDER OF WAR offers Square Enix an exciting opportunity to enter this hugely popular genre, and is a strong proposition for our first western developed release. With its cinematic intensity, hugely realistic battles and historical accuracy, the game looks set to whet the appetite of any war gaming fan."
Victor Kislyi, chief executive officer of Wargaming.net says, "ORDER OF WAR will take strategy games in a new, exciting direction, narrowing the gameplay focus on the best part and challenges gamers to defeat the most powerful armies of WWII. And we are really glad that this immense title will be released by Square Enix Ltd. - one of the largest and most successful publishers in the world."
