World War II: Frontline Command: HomeLan Fed Interview
Posted: Thursday, 15 August 2002

Here is another World War II: Frontline Command interview on HomeLan Fed.

    The World War II era continues to be a popular setting for PC games and developer Bitmap Brothers and publisher Codemasters plan to bring the Last Great War onto PC screens later this year with World War II: Frontline Command, their upcoming 3D real time strategy game. HomeLAN got a chance to chat with Bitmap Brothers' creative director Jamie Barber to find out more about their plans for the game.

    HomeLan - How did the idea come about to create a World War II based RTS game.

    Jamie Barber - We wanted to make a WWII strategy game that had action and realism without being a hardcore simulation, so a couple of us started work on a prototype for something to do! We created some units, put them into a test level and started playing around... It turned out to be a lot of fun so we started working on a full game within two weeks.

    18:40 World War II: Frontline Command is The Bitmap Brothers' real-time strategy title which aims to give the likes of Sudden Strike a run for its money. A squad-based affair, it will see players in command of the Allied forces, taking them through some of the more memorable battles from the closing months of the Second World War.

    Made up of 25 single-player missions, the game will begin with the Normandy beach invasion (June 6th 1944). After successfully surviving D-Day, you'll then experience the likes of Operation Market Garden and the Battle Of The Bulge in preparation for the grand finale, the storm on Hitler's Berchtesgaden stronghold in the Alps.
