    Вторая мировая война близится к своему завершению. Армии СССР рвутся к горящему Берлину, одерживая одну победу за другой. В это время командованию американской стратегической службы становится известна шокирующая информация: по личному указу Сталина советские войска, невзирая на многочисленные потери, должны первыми войти в Берлин, дабы единолично завладеть материалами немецкой программы ядерных исследований и затем использовать захваченное секретное оружие в борьбе за победу мировой революции. Высшее руководство разведслужб США понимает, что никто не в праве обладать столь разрушительными технологиями, и поручает вам новое задание: проникнуть на территорию Берлина и уничтожить легендарное «Оружие Возмездия».

    Особенности игры

    • Действие игры разворачивается в десяти обширных локациях осажденного Берлина за несколько месяцев до окончания войны.

    World War II Combat: Road to Berlin™ takes place at the close of WWII, where there was a dramatic race between U.S. and Russian forces to capture German prototypes, research and top scientists. The spoils of this race altered the direction of the Cold War and the world at large for decades to come.

    All of the German weapons research and systems featured in World War II Combat: Road to Berlin™ are based on actual designs, prototypes and wind tunnel models that were completed before the war ended. Several of the advanced weapon systems featured in the game were actually produced and saw combat against the allies. Much of what was captured remains classified to this day, 60 years after the end of the war.

Moore's mission is to race into Berlin and beat Stalin's armies to the highly-advanced German "Vengeance Weapons" research. Players scrounge for weapons, hide from patrols, and fight against both the Russian and German armies in 10 exciting single-player levels in a variety of environments. Single player levels include document retrieval and delivery, close contact skirmishes and stealth missions. Players can access authentic WWII military weapons throughout the game including the Thompson Submachine "Tommy" Gun, MK2 Pineapple Grenade and Panzerfaust rocket launcher.

    Based on the Unreal engine, the full-feature single-player campaign in World War II Combat: Road to Berlin™ is supported by complete Xbox Live gameplay features. On Xbox Live, gamers can confront the enemy with up to 16 other players in eight distinct multiplayer modes including VIP Escort, Deathmatch and single or Team King of the Hill.
