Combat Mission: Beyond Overlord (Gold Demo) Description:
is a turn-based, simultaneous-execution, 3D simulation of World War II tactical warfare.
Combat Mission: Beyond Overlord takes you from Normandy 1944 to Germany 1945 on World War II's Western Front. Play as Allied or Axis, ranging from US Airborne to German Volkssturm. Battle across the bocage, tackle a village or two, drive through the plains, push into the woods, and slog it out in cities.
Combat Mission combines unparalleled game depth and ease of use with a true 3D environment. The move to the 3rd dimension is not just to look cool, rather it improves the accuracy of the simulation. True 3D line of sight, 3D spotting, 3D terrain, and 3D trajectories are much more realistic than 2D approximations. Combat Mission provides all this and more with historical scenarios and campaigns. And if there is a battle that isn't covered, make it up yourself with the easy to use editor.
Combat Mission is divided into three phases; Setup, Orders, and Action. The Setup Phase is a one-time occurrence, which allows you to position your troops at the beginning of the game. The Orders Phase is where you issue orders to your units, and the Action Phase is the automated 60-second resolution of those orders.
Most features break with "standard" conventions, like spotting via sound, or misidentification of targets. Others simply do a much better job, like the instant feedback 3D line of sight check. Still others go into uncharted territory, like the adjustable waypoint movement system and incredibly accurate armor penetration algorithms. Amazing historical detail, unparalleled features, incredible ease of use, and cutting edge 3D audio and visuals make Combat Mission: Beyond Overlord a radical leap in wartime simulators.
