Deep Silver has released some new details about Iron Front: D-Day’s American units. In the upcoming DLC for the World War II tactical shooter, you’ll be able to use bazookas and Thompson machine guns, commandeer Sherman tanks and even use the famous Higgins landing craft from the infamous Omaha Beach landing. The Western Front might be a different way of fighting the war, but if two invasions and several CIA-sponsored coups have taught us anything, it works.
Deep Silver has also announced a new contest for a chance to win the expansion pack.
Players must create and submit a new custom gameplay mission created with the game’s mission editor. The winning missions will be made available for all players to download together with the next game patch release. Not just the DLC, but as a prize, the creators of the winning missions will be mentioned in the DLC credits. Note that existing missions won’t be accepted as contributions for the contest.
The contest starts today and ends with the release of D-Day for PC on December 14, 2012 for $9.99.
