on

Sudden Strike 4, a real-time strategy game released on August 11, 2017, is receiving its first DLC in the form of new campaign missions revolving around Dunkirk.

Titled ‘Road to Dunkirk,’ the new expansion will allow players to experience the Battle of Dunkirk from the perspective of both sides: the Germans and Allies. As the Germans, players will launch an offensive in the Battle of Lille, tasked with breaking through French defenses as they surge forward with their iconic Blitzkrieg style of warfare. Eventually, gamers will have to destroy an English battleship to emerge victorious. When playing as the Allies, however, users will be tasked with a counterattack during the Battle of Ypres-Comines in which they attempt to evacuate.

Additionally, the Allies will receive two new commanders to use in the expansion: Charles de Gaulle, a French war hero and leader of Free France; and Harold Alexander, commander of the British Expeditionary Force division. No further details regarding these commanders and what perks they offer in-game have been released.

Lastly, ‘Road to Dunkirk’ introduces 10 new units, from the German SIG 33 Bison artillery to French Char B1 heavy tank.

Sudden Strike 4: Road to Dunkirk will be available for PC and PlayStation 4 on October 20, 2017 for USD$9.99.

Sudden Strike 4 is a real-time strategy game developed by Kite Games and published by Kalypso Media Digital. The game is the fifth main installment in the Sudden Strike series and is the first to implement the use of commanders. This gameplay feature allows players to choose a historical military leader who specializes in specific styles of warfare, such as infantry; armor; or air tactics. SS4 is available on PC and PlayStation 4 for USD$49.99.

Layers of Fear 2 Launching Late Next Month

Layers of Fear 2

Layers of Fear 2 has been talked about for a while now and is finally coming late next month.

Announced today by publisher Gun Media, the sequel to the psychological romp through artistic ego Layers of Fear is set to launch May 28 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Gameplay-wise, the sequel looks to cover similar ground as its predecessor. As a first-person psychological horror with “an emphasis on exploration and story,” players meander through heavily-scripted set-pieces while solving puzzles and being scared a whole lot.

Layers of Fear 2, though, will be swapping the paintbrush for the dizzying heights of Hollywood. According to the game’s Steam synopsis, players “control a Hollywood actor who heeds the call of an enigmatic director to take on the lead role in a film shot aboard an ocean liner.”

Stifled by their own acting ambitions, the protagonist finds themselves alone and marooned on an increasingly nightmarish boat. The game’s unnamed protagonist must navigate their own past and the challenges the director sets them to unlock the secret to not just the film they are starring in, but their own motivations.

The original Layers of Fear was a captivating take on modern, story-driven horror, so the sequel’s inventive premise and greater scope are welcomed. While the sequel is embarking to a radically different setting, the title looks likely to recapture the original’s claustrophobic, atmospheric level design.
