A wreck of a T- 34 is burning just outside the village. The crew was taken by surprise by the German armoured vanguard. Only few months have passed since the beginning of the invasion of the Motherland and nothing seems able to stand against the powerful advancing panzerdivisionen.

Nevertheless the Germans have underestimated the iron will of Ivan and soon they begin to face more and more resistance. No bunker can be taken until the last defender is dead, every forest can hide an insidious trap, and the Russian steppes seem to be endless.

This will be a long and cruel war.

Today, Gary Grigsby's War in the Eastone of the 50 Best Strategy Games Ever Made according to Rock Paper Shotgun– is starting a new grand campaign with its official release on Steam.

With this new release players have a new chance to dive into this conflict thanks to the accessible gameplay, the perfectly represented chain of command and order of battle and engage the enemy in massive, dramatic campaigns, including intense battles involving thousands of units with realistic and historical terrain, weather, orders of battle, logistics and combat results.

Originally released in 2010, Gary Grigsby’s War in the East, the most detailed computer wargame ever created about the Eastern Front of World War 2, has benefited from five years of ongoing and regular support since release, with many major updates following one after the other, including the v1.08.04 update just released today.  Along with the release of several very ambitious updates which have expanded gameplay and increased realism and historical depth, there have also been two expansions. Its two expansions Don to the Danube and Lost Battles are also available on the digital platform now as part of the combined package.

Gary Grigsby’s War in the East is a truly epic representation of the scope and sweep of the Second World War on the Eastern Front and is unparalleled in its scale, detail, and ambition!

In order to celebrate this important milestone, we are discounting the game and the Deluxe Edition (base game + expansions) during the week of the launch:

•    Base game $79.99, with launch discount of 30% moving it to $55.99

•    Package price $89.99 with launch discount of 30% moving it to $62.99Grab the game here!
