Polish studio MS Games sees its niche here, having created a first-person shooter focused primarily on the September campaign and the early days of German aggression. Warland: The Beginning will introduce players to events such as the Siege of Warsaw, the Battle of Mokra, or the desperate defense of the Hel Peninsula.
