Battlefront.com has announced that a playable demo for Combat Mission: Barbarossa to Berlin will be released on September 1. The demo will include two scenarios, as well as a tutorial. In Barbarossa to Berlin, players fight with historically accurate forces that fought on World War II's Eastern Front. The scenarios start with the German invasion of Russia in 1941 and end with the Soviet's storming of Berlin in 1945. The original Combat Mission , released in the middle of 2000, was praised as the first historical wargame to make good use of a 3D graphics engine, and the sequel aims to both improve both the graphics and add new layers of historical detail.
Combat Mission: Barbarossa to Berlin is scheduled to start shipping on September 20. It is available for order from the Battlefront.com Web site. For more details, read our Combat Mission of the game.
