14th August, 2009 - Today, Ubisoft announces it will be releasing Panzer General®: Allied Assault on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft in Spring 2009. Developed by Petroglyph, Panzer General: Allied Assault is an all-new single and multiplayer digital card game that takes place during the last phase of World War II, from 1944 to 1945. The dramatic events of D-Day finally gave the Allies a foothold on Fortress Europe, allowing them to push the Germans back to Berlin. Players can recreate actual battles such as Utah Beach, Operation Market Garden, and the infamous Battle of the Bulge in the hopes of turning back the German tide. Build, customize and fight with your personalised deck of 60 digital cards. History is in your hands.
Ranked as one of the top 50 computer games of all time and quoted by PC Gamer Magazine as “Criminally Addictive”, the Panzer General franchise has spawned a loyal following of dedicated fans eager for more turn-based strategy action. This all-new strategy game title comes after five successful releases under its belt.
