June 6th, 1944: A Day That Echoes Through History

D-Day marked a decisive phase in World War II as the Western Allies embarked on the mightiest seaborne invasion. This history forms The Troop’s backdrop, allowing gamers to navigate North West Europe’s war-torn landscapes, commandeering infantry, motorized, and armored units.

The game captures the quintessence of tabletop war gaming. Players have full command, ensuring tanks, guns, and infantry react per their strategy. While the game’s environment is interactive and adrenaline-charged, the stakes remain high; a single miscalculation can spell the difference between victory and defeat.

Tom Page, Studio Director at PLA Studios, proudly states:

“The Troop’s journey from inception to its upcoming release has been fuelled by our team’s unwavering passion for WWII history and turn-based gaming. The full version boasts enhancements like the ‘overwatch’ and ‘bocage shooting’ rules, and we are especially thrilled to introduce the new Campaign mode with four distinct campaigns.”

Game Highlights Include:
