Steel Division: Normandy 44 is a tactical real-time strategy with a focus on absolutely massive multiplayer battles that can scale all the way up to 10-on-10. After going through a brief beta phase Steel Division: Normandy is now finally available on Steam, and I'm very glad to say that so far the reviews are overwhelmingly positive.

But before we move on to what works and what doesn't, it would probably be wise for you to check out the recently posted launch trailer. It doesn't feature much in terms of actual gameplay, but it should at least give you an idea of what kind of a game Steel Division: Normandy really is. Have a look:

I haven't played it myself, so take the following with a few grains of salt, but apparently Steel Division: Normandy is much superior to its predecessors. It has the same sort of complexity and strategical depth, but with enough things simplified to make the new player experience less harrowing. That said, the vast majority of negative reviews cite exactly the new player experience as the biggest problem, so it would appear that despite all of the concessions Steel Division is just as tricky to get into as Wargame. As such, only grab it if you're looking for an RTS that you can really sink your teeth into!

If you would like to learn more, or just check out a few other trailers, you should head over to the Paradox website or Steam. And finally, here's a couple of images:
