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.

Judgment Producer: Friendship System Makes Yagami “A Much More Deeper Character”

Published

Judgment

Judgment producer Kazuki Hosokawa has discussed new introduction of the friendship system and its effect on creating Yagami’s deeper character.

Judgment shares a lot with the Yakuza series, and, as it turns out, both games were in development at the same time. Players will go back to the streets of Kamurocho, but this time as a dynamic detective named Takayuki Yagami in a new courtroom-thriller narrative. Players will have to subtly follow suspects and search crime scenes for evidence. Judgment will suit Yakuza fans, but casual players should not miss it.

In an interview with Twinfinite, Hosokawa shares more details about the introduction of the friendship system, and the effect on Yagami’s personality.

When asked about why he chose to develop the friendship system, Hosokawa explained the main reason is to reinforce Yagami’s character.

The friendship event actually developed when we were thinking about how to solidify the character of Yagami… Interacting with the townspeople that are also living in Kamurocho gives Yagami a much more deeper character.”

Hosokawa is significantly trying to focus on depth of character for Yagami. His aim appears to be to create a fully dimensional protagonist who draws players into the story. Therefore, using aspects like a home neighbourhood and friendship events help to create simple everyday examples of relationship and character building.

Whilst Hosokawa is predominantly used to making games for PlayStation, he indicated that Rya Ga Gotoku Studio is considering making internal preparations enabling easier switching to the PlayStation 5 for future developments.

“We are definitely thinking as a studio and considering the changes in the platforms… we want to utilize these new specifications whenever we are developing anything new.”

However Hosokawa also did not rule out the possibility of cross-platforming Judgment by porting the title to other platforms.
