Deep Silver and X1 Software/AWAR have announced D-Day, an add-on pack for the tactical World War II shooter Iron Front – Liberation 1944. The downloadable content (DLC) takes the player to the western theatre of the war where, in Normandy, the Allied armed forces fight against the German troops.
The DLC pack features new items and troops, as well as new scenarios that allow players to now take on the role of American soldiers, pilots and tank crew members and fight for the freedom of France in Normandy. Their armoury includes, amongst others, the M1 Garand rifle and the BAR machine gun. Assistance from the air is provided by the likes of the P-47 Thunderbolt, whilst the Sherman tank helps keep the ground forces in check. The German troops have also enhanced their arsenal, including the Tiger I tank.
The release date and the price of the DLC will be announced soon, but has been confirmed for December 2012. Iron Front – Liberation 1944 will also receive a new patch alongside the DLC and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on the videogame.
