Description

Silent Storm is a 3D turn-based tactical combat game. Set in 1943 during World War II, Silent Storm plays much like Jagged Alliance 2, with some very noticeable differences, such a true 3D world, completely destructible environments, ragdoll physics, and lack of 4X (eXpand, eXploit, eXplore, eXterminate) elements.

You can lead a squad of the Axis or the Allies as you play through 24 missions and random encounters, unfolding a sinister plot that would threaten both sides of the war.

75 weapons are available to you as you fight through nonlinear missions that range from quiet villages in snowy Russia to secret underground enemy bases. There are six professions to choose from: Sniper, Scout, Soldier, Grenadier, Medic and Engineer, each with their own advancement tree, where you assign perks to as they level up.
