From the creators of Men of War, Gates of Hell arrives with unmatched immersion, hard boiled historical campaigns and massive dynamic multiplayer battles. GoH offers revamped infantry dynamics, accurate reworked ballistics and much more, including community requested features like redesigned flight model, combat improvements and expanded factions in its upgraded engine. Shift between RTS and Top-down Third person direct control modes and use the total destructibility of landscapes to revive the most intense portrayal of World War II.

Gates of Hell is a historical/realism action-based RTS based on the powerful GEM2 game engine by Best Way.

Gates of Hell aims to attract all fans of previous Men of War games. In addition, GoH has a much more comfortable learning curve, aiming to target newcomers to RTS games and also players from other RTS which seek a new experience. The time has come to experience the combat you've always desired, tantalisingly recreated, no detail ignored. Passionately reinvented to give the most heart-rending portrayal of warfare to date. It will be bloody, it will be gritty, it will be war in the raw. You will experience the sensations you felt when watching and reading war films and books. Join us as we attempt to retell the stories of the Second World War, from both perspectives, of the victors and the vanquished. Now, only one question remains... Where does your loyalty lie?

In Gates of Hell, the player will fight throughout WW2 battles, from the sands of North Africa to the snow covered peaks of Russia. In Early Access and until full release the action will be packed on the Eastern Front as the HD content for the game piles up. The player must use his skill plus the situation to defeat his enemy or complete mission objectives in spite of all odds that will arise. Weather the task is to snipe out an enemy officer, to destroy a tank column or fight against human rivals in the multiplayer game-modes, players must analyse the battle with their situational awareness and use the advantages of the nation they are playing, the terrain and their strategy. Whereas some players will prefer direct confrontation if they afford superior firepower, others might choose coordinated sabotage tactics. It is up to you to use historical warfare techniques to outsmart and outmanoeuvre the enemy!

Ok this really annoys me why people do this , 1. Its not just England its Britain and secondly most of these factions are probs coming into the mod via, DLC or will already placed into the game and thirdly i think this game only focuses on African and European theatre.

:D just my little OCD demon inside of me, however ask Cule he is one of the devs
