Storm the frontlines: the first demo for
Headquarters: World War II
is rolling out during Steam Next Fest

The explosive new demo will see players dive into the heat of action during the game’s gripping German campaign

Slitherine Software and Starni Games are airdropping a free new demo for their much-anticipated turn-based strategy title, Headquarters: World War II during Steam Next Fest. Available 5th-12th February, the demo will offer the first glimpse of the game’s fast-paced turn-based gameplay across two playable missions.

The missions contained in the demo include a tutorial mission and the first battle to be featured within the game’s gripping German campaign. The tutorial represents the perfect training ground for new recruits to brush up on their skills before they reach the frontline. The demo’s second mission will see players relive one of the most iconic battles in history from the perspective of the Germans, as they wage war against the Allied on D-Day.

Planned to release in Q2 2024, Headquarters: World War II covers the Battle of Normandy in three plot-driven campaigns, (the USA, the UK, and Germany) that span nine missions each. Alongside these three campaigns, the game features a Skirmish Mode, a Map Editor tool, a random map generation tool, and a Multiplayer Mode for up to four players.
