Upon project completion, we are glad to announce that Söldner-X: Himmelsstürmer for PC is finally in production and estimated to ship in just a bit more than two weeks from now, more precisely on December 14th, 2007.

The first batch of Söldner-X: Himmelsstürmer will be distributed on a disc based format and ships as First Print Limited Edition, strictly limited and serial numbered to 3,000 units only. Preorders are now open at Play-Asia.com as long as supplies last.
