Scott Parrino -> Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue Releasing Soon! (7/2/2012 8:27:18 PM)

Keep your schedules open for this upcoming release!

Matrix Games, Slitherine (www.slitherine.com) and VR Designs (www.vrdesigns.nl) are excited to announce the upcoming release of the new turn-based operational strategy game Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue, the second release in the critically-acclaimed Decisive Campaigns series.

Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue brings players to the Eastern Front during World War II, simulating the German Wehrmacht’s drive towards Stalingrad and the Caucasus in the summer of 1942. Take command of the powerful Wehrmacht starting from the 2nd Kharkov Offensive and in Operation Trappenjagd or unleash the might of the Red Army during the Soviet winter counter-offensive in Operation Uranus that encircled the 6th Army in Stalingrad and changed the entire course of the war. With multiple campaign scenarios and a full scenario editor, there are virtually endless operational and strategic “what ifs”, especially when combined with the new high command order system. Succeed in your orders and you can guide future strategy in the campaign – fail and you’ll find yourself removed from command…or worse!

Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue comes packed to the brim with new features and improvements, more than we can list here:

+4 campaign scenarios (Case Blue (Long and Short), and Operation Uranus, 2nd Kharkov-Trappenjagd)
+1 linked scenario campaign (1st Panzer Army)
+2 small scenarios (2nd Kharkov and Drive on Voronezh)
+New rewritten and greatly improved AI
+Full scenario editor
+Well-researched historical simulation
+High Command rules, including “no step back” and dismissal options
+Historical and dynamic Order of Battle, including player requests for replacements and reinforcement units
+… and much more!


Be ready head to the front when Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue releases on July 16, 2012! For more information and the full new feature list, visit the official product page for Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue on the Matrix Games or Slitherine site.



About Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue

The development team behind the award-winning game Decisive Campaigns: From Warsaw to Paris is back with a new and improved game engine that focuses on the decisive year and theater of World War II! Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue simulates the German drive to Stalingrad and into the Caucasus of the summer of 1942, as well as its May preludes (2nd Kharkov offensive, Operation Trappenjagd) and also the Soviet winter counter-offensive (Operation Uranus) that ended with the encirclement of 6th Army in Stalingrad and the destruction of the axis minor armies.

Well researched and packed with depth, including detailed unit data down to vehicle level and historically realistic combined arms gameplay, Case Blue also features an easy-to-learn interface and a good AI. In the campaign scenarios, next to the victory conditions, you will have to deal with high command orders that can instruct you to hold or take specific cities. Do well and earn prestige that enables you to request reinforcements and influence high command decisions, do bad and you’ll have to be careful not to get sacked.

WilliePete -> RE: Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue Releasing Soon! (7/16/2012 11:46:01 AM)

whats going on? It's 7am here and CB is still not for sale...




aspqrz -> RE: Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue Releasing Soon! (7/16/2012 12:08:40 PM)

Well, that merely means that they have another 17 hours (or slightly less) to get it on sale ... or, maybe, they're not going by New York time? It's only 3am (ish) in LA!

Yep, I'm waiting, too [:D]

PirateJock -> RE: Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue Releasing Soon! (7/16/2012 1:19:18 PM)

Well something is happening ... possibly ... hopefully - it's disappeared from the Matrix Store.

Cheers

Have a thought for those waiting in different time zones. It's actually the 17th of July here [8|]




aspqrz -> RE: Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue Releasing Soon! (7/16/2012 1:49:03 PM)

I'm actually in Sydney (Australia, not Canada [:)]), so it's 10:50 pm on the 16th here ... heading for the 17th!

Phil




Erik Rutins -> RE: Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue Releasing Soon! (7/16/2012 2:09:33 PM)

Hi guys,

Yes, we are releasing today, hopefully in about three to four hours, though that's subject to change as we go through our final QA for release day. We're on US Eastern time here, so unfortunately it may be late or the next day in some parts of the world.

Regards,

- Erik

animaluk -> RE: Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue Releasing Soon! (7/16/2012 6:30:41 PM)

i have numerous matrix games i have ordererd and recieved a meesage saying this order is pending plimus review what is this about




Erik Rutins -> RE: Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue Releasing Soon! (7/16/2012 6:34:16 PM)

Hi Animaluk,

That's rare but it means that for some reason the payment information you entered didn't match the information that the store had or received from the payment provider. It can be because a credit card changed, or other account info was different, etc. It just means that the order is flagged so that someone in the store has to look at it before confirming it. Typically this takes a few minutes. If you don't receive a follow up with a download link within the hour, please let me know in an e-mail to at erikr@matrixgames.com and I'll make sure it gets cleared ASAP.

Regards,

- Erik




animaluk -> RE: Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue Releasing Soon! (7/16/2012 6:50:43 PM)

cheers i will await there reply




DBeves -> RE: Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue Releasing Soon! (7/16/2012 6:59:52 PM)

The usual god awful download speed from Plimus ... when are matrix going to sort this out ?




Erik Rutins -> RE: Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue Releasing Soon! (7/16/2012 7:11:03 PM)

Hi DBeves,

We've run lots of tests over the past year and made many improvements and we are now getting great download speeds in our testing. Our downloads are now served from the Amazon Cloud, which is used worldwide for download services, including by companies such as Netflix. Odds are that if you are getting bad download speeds, it's something between your ISP and us on the internet rather than a problem with the store bandwidth.

Regards,

- Erik




hafer -> RE: Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue Releasing Soon! (7/16/2012 7:17:01 PM)

My download was fast, approx 500mb/sec.

Thanx for the game, i love it so far!




NavalNewZ -> RE: Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue Releasing Soon! (7/16/2012 8:50:47 PM)

Hi DBeeves,

Are you using the download manager that was mentioned in this thread you created regarding Conflict of Heroes? http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3098987 I only get decent speeds from Plimus if I use that.




TheWombat -> RE: Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue Releasing Soon! (7/16/2012 9:38:21 PM)

I get better speeds if I pause, then unpause, the download; then it speeds right up.

DBeves, have you forgotten the glory days of gaming just a few years ago? Back then everything was drive to the store and HOPE the game was there. Or, order online, NO DOWNLOADS, and wait for the post to arrive. Even slow downloads are better than the alternative.

Meanwhile, I will be enjoying the game while you wait.[sm=sterb032.gif]




LiquidSky -> RE: Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue Releasing Soon! (7/17/2012 12:29:35 AM)



I had over 2Mb/s. Was afraid it would be much slower, but I did buy it at 11am (pacific), so I probably missed the rush.
