Play as the noble Ural Guard, the proud communes of Orenburg, the dastardly Dirlewanger Brigade, or the scheming Lysenko of Magnitogorsk in this exciting demo from the New Order team!
World War II has been over for twenty years, but its legacy still lives on. The German Reich reigns supreme from the Atlantic sea to the once great city of Moscow, ruling Europe with an iron fist. Thousands live and die every day under German tyranny, yearning for a freedom that may never come.
But all is not well in the Reich.
Hitler lays on his deathbed even as the first German raumsonaut lands on the moon, and already the vultures pick at his corpse. Albert Speer, Martin Bormann, Hermann Göring and Reinhard Heydrich each prepare to take power in the Reich, and the world waits with baited breath for the storm that is surely coming. Outside of the Reichstag in the supercity of Germania, partisans prepare for their final struggle, and Heinrich Himmler plots to bring the world to the edge from his spartanist utopia in the Ordenstaat of Burgundy.
Across the seas, the United States gathers allies to prevent the fall of democracy in the world, struggling to contain its own politics long enough to tear up the treaties that had ended the second World War. In Asia, the Japanese Empire groans under the weight of rivals within as well as without, as a hundred different cultures struggle and year for their own freedoms.
The world seems to be on the brink. Will it survive to see a new millennium, or is this the beginning of the end?

This demo is just a glimmer of the future, a thank you note and love letter to all of those who have followed our project so eagerly for the last five years of development.

The New Order team does not have a single Patron, as we can not justify taking money and claiming it is for the mod when the mod has no major expenses. However, several individual members of the team use crowd-funding, and you can feel free to support any of us at your leisure.
