Festung Europa is a realism-based, multiplayer combined arms tactical shooter, currently under development by Jackboot Games for the PC: Take your place at the front lines as Allied forces face the might of the German war machine during one of the most pivotal moments in World War II. From the bloody landing beaches, through the deadly bocage, to the desperate, desolate fields outside of Falaise, you will fight side by side with your squad mates against the enemy as you participate in historical Operations such as Neptune, Perch, Epsom, Charnwood, Goodwood, Cobra, and Totalise.

On this day 72 years ago, the Allies began their assault on Hitler's "Festung Europa" - Fortress Europe - by land, sea, and air. By the end of 6 June 1944 through hard fighting on the beaches and in the coastal towns of Normandy, over 100,000 Allied soldiers had made it ashore to begin what was to become known as the Battle of France. Among them were the men of the Commonwealth's 21st Army Group.

"To us is given the honour of striking a blow for freedom which will live in history; and in the better days that lie ahead men will speak with pride of our doings. We have a great and a righteous cause. Let us pray that 'The Lord Mighty in Battle' will go forth with our armies, and that His special providence will aid us in the struggle. I want every soldier to know that I have complete confidence in the successful outcome of the operations that we are now about to begin. With stout hearts, and with enthusiasm for the contest, let us go forward to victory."

- Sir Bernard Montgomery, 5 June 1944

To recognize your patience as our Community, and as a small token of appreciation, we are today unveiling our first gameplay trailer for Festung Europa. Please be aware that we are still in the pre-Alpha phase of development and that there is still much work to be done, although a solid foundation for the game's advancement has now been laid. Many thanks to all of you for your continued support, and a deep sense of gratitude to all of our teammates who toil away - and continue to do so - in their free time to bring this game from a dream to reality.

Enjoy and see you on the battlefield! *Click Here to Visit Our Teaser*
