Story

In the summer of 1944, the World War II entered its end-game when the Allies launched two major operations that would drive back German forces on both the Western and Eastern Fronts at once. Order of War contains two campaigns, one American and one German. Order of War allows players to lead American forces to victory in the west and also places players in command of the German forces charged with repelling the Red Army’s offensive in the east.[4]

Order of War features detailed graphics and a historically accurate storyline.[5] The main focus of the game that sets it apart from other strategy offers is the sweeping scale of battlefield vistas featuring company level engagements. Players take command of multiple unit types, including ground troops, artillery, tank divisions and aircraft in strategic assaults based on key missions and operations from 1944.[6] Order of War is a Real Time Strategy (RTS) game without requiring the player to manage traditional base building or resource collection activities. Much like the RELIC's Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War series or the subsequent "Company of Heroes", Order of War rewards players with reinforcement points over time for capturing command points that are spread out across the map. However, utilization of these points is similar to World in Conflict and Blitzkrieg .

Features
