June 1944 – The Axis is retreating on all fronts. The German army does not have the strategic initiative anymore and is trying to strengthen its defensive lines in order to stop the progress of Russian forces on the Eastern Front, and to prevent any landing from the Allied forces in the West. The Atlantic Wall seems unbreakable but rumors about a possible seaborne invasion in the north of France puts the German commanders under pressure. And suddenly, on June the 6th, the Allied forces launch one of the most audacious operations of the whole war. The world’s destiny is a stake on the Normandy beaches…

Successor of the very successful Frontline: Road to Moscow that reached the top of the charts on iPad this past spring, The Longest Day moves the action west and focuses on the D-Day operation that turned the tide of the war. From developer 88mm, this new chapter of the Frontline saga preserves the strengths that made it popular – original art direction, variety of units, and streamlined UI – and introduces deeper gameplay elements to provide a more realistic simulation of the battlefield. As the 5 massive campaigns unfold, players will have to take into account more and more variables like landmines, flanking maneuvers, and encirclements in order to breach the heavy Axis defensive lines.

The game is now ready to enter the beta phase on iPad, iPhone and PC. And we invite players to help us test it! By signing up for the beta, players will have a chance to visit the Normandy beaches before release and help us with the final touches, ensuring a smooth release on iOS and PC later this year.
