For Immediate Release

Epsom, UK – March 17, 2014.

"We must not again underestimate the Japanese." (Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, Commander in Chief of the Pacific Fleet)

December 7, 1941 – The Japanese forces strike first, destroying some of the major vessels of the American Pacific Fleet in the naval base of Pearl Harbor. This was the starting point of a giant conflict involving hundreds of thousands of planes, dreadnoughts, tanks and weapons of all types.

In Order of Battle: Pacific, you will be able to take command of both the American and Japanese armed forces in a dynamic series of campaigns for supremacy in this strategic Theater of Operations. Even if historical events will set the tempo of the war, the results of the player’s actions will directly alter the final outcome of this duel between the US and Japan.

Today, we are proud to share some screenshots taken from the current version of the game. They feature combat in some of the most famous battles of the Pacific like Guadalcanal, the Coral Sea and Pearl Harbor.

Order of Battle Pacific is set to be released Summer 2014. Get more information on the game from its official product page.
