The legendary World War II Real-Time-Strategy series Sudden Strike returns to Windows PC, and premiers for the first time on consoles with a PlayStation 4 release, in just a few weeks! Today, Kalypso Media is excited to show you the awesome bonuses that the physical “Day One Edition” of Sudden Strike 4 will feature at retail!

Acclaimed for his work on Emmy award winning TV show Game of Thrones as well as video games such as Killzone: Shadow Fall and Ryse: Son of Rome, the extremely talented artist, Robert Simon, has collaborated with Kalypso to define Sudden Strike 4’s distinctive art style.
The “Day One Edition” of Sudden Strike 4 on Windows PC and PlayStation 4 will feature three of Mr. Simon’s World War II propaganda poster inspired oil paintings in-box as reversible bonus covers, themed after each of the three factions featured in Sudden Strike 4 — Western Allies, German and Soviet.

These bonuses are also available digitally via Steam for Windows PC, Linux and Mac. Additionally, there is currently a 15% pre-order discount available on Steam that includes immediate access to both the beta test version of Sudden Strike 4 and the original Sudden Strike Trilogy. Steam customers can also download the free Sudden Strike Quiz app on iOS and Android devices to unlock further stackable pre-order discounts for a potential total of up to 25% off.
About Sudden Strike 4
Developed as a fully-fledged series entry and not a remake or reboot, Sudden Strike 4 sends you off on three extensive campaigns set amongst the battlefields of World War II. Commanding the British and American, German or Soviet armies, you will lead over 100 different units into battle, including the German Heinkel He111 bomber, the Russian T-34 tank, the British Hawker Typhoon fighter plane and even the notorious German Panzerkampfwagen VI “Tiger”.
Sudden Strike 4 is scheduled for a worldwide release on Steam on 11th August 2017, as well as via retail and the PlayStation Store in UK and European export territories. The North American retail and PlayStation Store release will then follow on Tuesday, 15th August.
