Wanted - the world's best "Rush for Berlin" player! 
Rush for Berlin Multiplayer demo now available

New York, USA (May 24, 2006) - Paradox Interactive and Stormregion announced today the release of
the multiplayer demo for "Rush for Berlin" and the official tournament for the game.

Over the coming weeks, players from different countries will play off against each other in a
worldwide tournament that will determine who is the "Best Rush for Berlin Player"! The ladder
competition will play out on Gamespy Arena and the winners will share hundreds of dollars worth of

To prepare for the tournament up to 4 players can practise multiplayer matches with the demo either
over LAN, Direct IP or GameSpy. Furthermore it will be possible to play the maps of the demo solo
against up to three AI enemies. Each of the three factions of the full game are available in the
demo, each offering its own unique strengths and weaknesses: The Allies with a higher availability
of resources, the germans with a higher technology level and the russians with faster and cheaper
infantry production.

The multiplayer demo of "Rush for Berlin" offers two of the five modes available in the full game:
Deathmatch and R.U.S.H.

R.U.S.H (Relentlessly Utilized Score Hunt)
This mode works on the same principles as the game itself: players rush for given target(s) to
occupy various objects, which yield points. Whoever scores the most points in a given time period
OR reaches the preset score limit wins. Each object grants a one-time bonus to the team which
captures it first (and a reduced bonus if the object is destroyed).

Fight your way through the enemy front - against your friends or against the AI. The only goal is
to eliminate any and all units belonging to other players - or teams.

Demo and access to the tournament are available here:
