How quickly time goes by! Steel Division: Normandy 44 is about to turn one (aww), and it has been a busy year! First of all, we wanted to thank you all for your ongoing support during all this time. Thanks to your feedback and your involvement, we were able to continuously support the game with free content during all this year, including game modes, 6 Attack/Defense scenarios, Historical Mission playable in coop, new units and aces...
Now it's time to celebrate this first anniversary properly with a gift: First Blood, the new free update available right now, adds two new divisions, the 1st Infantry Division "Big Red One" and the 1.
