Default Brand New Theatre Of War Demo Released

1C Company released the updated Theatre of War Demo. This demo is built with "Uber" (v1.10.0.81) patch and includes a new advanced Line of Sight system, better AI behaviour and improved combat and weapon modelling.

The demo features new playable battle taken from the German Panzer Lehr Campaign. There are also 5 playable tutorial missions designed to introduce the player to basic and advanced features of gameplay.

Please download the Theatre of War Demo (v1.10.1.81) from http://www.battlefront.com/products/tow/demo.html. File size: 588Mb.

Install Location Note:
Demo install directory must not contain any symbols (ex: ! or #) or non-standard characters in it. If it does, the demo may not launch properly. We recommend to use the default directory name "Theatre of War Demo".

Demo Notes:
This is a newly released updated demo, based on the recent v1.10.0.81 game version. This new game version offers much better performance over the original demo and other improvements that have been introduced into the game over the past few months.

This single player demo features 5 tutorial missions that cover the basics of gameplay, unit control and camera behaviour as well as more advanced topics like Line of Fire and Line of Sight. In addition to the playable tutorials there is also one playable mission from the new German Panzer Lehr Campaign. In this battle, tank units of the British 7 Armoured Division attempt to outflank the player's positions in order to capture the strategically key town of Villers-Bocage.

Playable units and weapons in this battle include: StuG III Ausf. G, PzKpfw IV 70 Jagdpanzer and PzKpfw IV Jagdpanzer Tank Destroyers, RPzB 54 Panzerschreck, Panzerfaust-30's, Panzerfaust-60's and PWM HE Grenade Anti-Tank Weapons, PaK 35/36 L45 37mm and PaK 40 L/48 75mm AT Gun's, SdKfz 7/1 20mm Flak 38 and FlakPz 38(t) Anti-Aircraft vehicles, Panzer IV Ausf. H tanks plus infantry units equipped with a wide variety of small arms and machineguns.

The British "Desert Rats" are going to try and quickly overrun the player's positions with their armour. The best assets are anti-tank forces, especially those troops armed with the powerful RPzB 54 Panzerschreck, although they can only carry a limited amount of ammo. In each squad, there is at least one soldier carrying extra ammo for the Panzerschreck. Please consult the game manual for details on how to drop and pickup weapons and ammo from soldiers' "backpack". It is recommended to keep as many anti-tank weapons in play as it is possible, either by re-crewing AT guns that have lost their crews or by scrounging Panzerschreck's, Panzerfausts or even AT Grenades from fallen comrades.

This battle is fast and furious, so it is possible to use the Space bar to "Pause" the action to issue orders while the game is paused. Backspace key can be used to alter the playback time to 1/2 speed or x2 speed. Please remember to reserve some troops and vehicles for the final counter-attack.
