Description

Winston Churchill was struck by a taxicab in 1931. What if he had died and without his leadership, Britain fell to the Nazis along with the rest of Europe?

Turning Point: Fall of Liberty is an alternate-history first-person shooter in which the player takes the role of a New York construction worker named Dan Carson in 1953, when the German Reich invades and occupies the American East Coast. He joins the National Guard troops trying to put up a defensive perimeter around subway and railway systems so civilians can escape.

Many advanced WWII weapons appear, including some that were under research, and some that never appeared. There are super-heavy tanks such as the Panzerkampfwagen VIII Maus and Landkreuzer P. 1000 Ratte, and also the Nachteule troop-transport zeppelin, the FlugzeugtrƤger aircraft-carrier zeppelin, as well as various advanced jet fighters and bombers, all used by the German invasion force. Multiplayer is available in standard deathmatch and team deathmatch modes on 4 maps, with Nazi soldiers versus the American Resistance to a maximum of 8 players.

Trivia

German version

In the German version, all swastikas and SS runes were either removed or replaced with Iron crosses and straight lines respectively. Also various references to high-level Nazis and the Nazi organization itself were removed from dialogue and the manual. A detailed list of changes can be found on schnittberichte.com (German).
