Africa – Desert War is the next chapter of the World War 2 strategy title Sudden Strike 4 and is available today on PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4. Africa – Desert War is based on some of the most notorious battles in North Africa during the war. Both the Axis and Allies have a new campaign in this add-on. In the Axis campaign, you will start the Italian advance on Egypt to take the city of Sidi Barrani, besiege the city of Tobruk and take over its harbor, as well as break through the Kasserine Pass in Tunisia.
In the Allied campaign, take part in Operation Compass and retake the village of Sidi Barrani, relive the watershed of the Western Desert Campaign, the Second Battle of El Alamein, and break through the German defensive line in the Battle of Mareth. Fight in an unforgiving and harsh desert setting with sandstorms to challenge your tactical wits. Five new doctrine commanders also await in this add-on. The Axis has German Erwin Rommel alongside three additional Italian commanders (including Giovanni Messe). The Allies receive the legendary armored division general Sir Richard O’Connor. This update also introduces over 30 new vehicles including an all-new medical truck, the Marder II Tank Destroyer, the British Bishop SPG, and the Italian Semovente da 105/25 Assault Gun.
