Rottenmann, Austria, 8 February 2005 - Jowood Productions, co-publisher Deep Silver. Before the release of the arse-kicking, action-packed WWII tank game Panzer Elite Action for XboxTM, Playstation 2 and PC developed by Zootfly, unveil the latest screens from the Playstation 2 version.

Panzer Elite Action is an arse kicking, action packed WWII tank game, where you are in charge of 30 tons of killing machine that can flatten a village from a distance with fire power alone. In the process, you can wipe out enemy tanks whilst hiding behind buildings or, you can send foot soldiers on their way to either look for shelter or get killed by the first volleys of death from your own cannons.

Panzer Elite Action follows the story of three tank commanders and their crew. The German commander, flushed with the success of the Blitzkrieg in Poland and France, moves on to the Eastern Front and the brink of victory with the taking of Stalingrad. We meet the Russian commander in desperate straits as he helps defend Stalingrad, and follow him as the tide turns against the Germans and he joins the massive tank battle of Kursk. The American commander enters the war on the Normandy Beachhead on D-Day. After the struggle for the Bocage, he defends the German outbreak at the Battle of the Bulge, and then drives on to the victorious crossing of the Rhine.

Panzer Elite Action lets the player have the ability to command increasingly powerful tanks in a series of intense and immersive action packed battles, which will let the player experience the adrenalin rush of charging into battle with cannons blazing death and destruction upon everything in their path.
