Kite Games and Kalypso Media released the first gameplay trailer for Sudden Strike 4 today. This revival of a dormant franchise was revealed back in August.
Along with showing more footage of the single player and multiplayer modes of this RTS game, the video showcases the return of the “pause and play” system that allows players to suspend the action while they issue detailed commands to the units that they control.
The trailer also highlights commanders, one of the most significant new features of Sudden Strike 4. Players will be able to choose from nine historically accurate commanders who each have their own unique abilities, perks, and skill trees.
Sudden Strike 4 will have the following features:
- Sudden Strike 4 offers realistic real-time strategy gameplay with tactical depth and a historical setting

- ‘Pause and play’ system allows you to suspend the action while issuing detailed commands and manoeuvres to your units.
