In March, 2003 Nival Interactive (now Nival) released the first part of a massively multiplayer RTS game based on the historical events of World War II – Blitzkrieg. More than 200 types of military units recreated from the real historical prototypes. Full-scale multiplayer to allow massive battles over the Internet or LAN. Experience gained in previous battles allows to upgrade units to fight better in future battles. A unique map editor added options of creating own missions and campaigns, adding models, textures and special effects, changing parameters of any military units. This editor is still being used by the game community to develop new mods. A mission generator allowed to create an unlimited number of customized missions of any style and difficulty level which made the game practically never ending.

The unit upgrade system was greatly improved as more special abilities were added.

Apart from that Blitzkrieg 2 had an extensive encyclopedia of units and a map editor with lots of new features.
