Spread holiday cheer (and your wargaming prowess) at a special discounted price!

Matrix Games is positively jolly to announce their 2010 Holiday Sale! Keeping in our yearly tradition of great savings around the holidays, most games in our catalog are on sale for 30% or more off the digital download price, with a few extra special deals! For example, those with a special thirst for conquest can get the game by the same name, Conquest! Medieval Realms, for a whopping 50% off or $9.99 for the digital download! To make your holidays really happy, we also arranged to have a few recent titles as part of the Holiday Sale this year, including Command Ops: Battles from the Bulge, Distant Worlds and Storm over the Pacific!

Starting on November 24th and continuing until Midnight on January 10, 2011, gamers around the globe will be able to purchase most titles in the Matrix Games catalog at 30% off or more!

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Nothing quite says ‘Happy Holidays’ like a successful cavalry charge down your opponent’s flank and there’s never been a better opportunity to stock up on games that let you do just that. Don’t snooze too much from that Thanksgiving turkey and miss these great savings! Our new store makes it easier than ever to purchase from us and our Game on Demand boxed copy is a perfect present for your favorite wargamer – it comes shrink wrapped and our Standard editions include a printed manual for a present with some extra weight.”

This year has been busy for the “wargaming elves” at Matrix as there have been many quality products added to our lineup. Here’s brief rundown of all the new games added to our catalog just in time for the holidays:
  • Field of Glory – Ancients turn-based wargaming at its finest with plenty of expansions including the upcoming Swords and Scimitars.
  • Distant Worlds – Award winning and acclaimed by critics and gamers alike, conquer a vast living galaxy right on your PC!
  • Across the Dnepr: Second Edition – Can the Blitzkrieg be stopped? The award-winning SSG team lets you answer that question yourself!
  • World War One Gold – The intense action of the First World War comes without the trenchfoot in this turn-based grand strategy hit.
  • Command Ops: Battles from the Bulge - Command Ops lets gamers assess, plan, order and react at the operational level just like a real Corps, Division and Brigade commander!
  • Storm over the Pacific – The creators of WW2: Time of Wrath take their turn-based grand strategy skills to the Pacific theater.
  • Close Combat – Last Stand Arnhem – The highly enhanced remake of an old classic has been storming (and blowing up) the bridges of the low countries since this summer!
  • Battlefield Academy – This turn-based strategy game like no other has been dazzling the critics and WWII fans alike!
  • Decisive Campaigns: The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris - Well researched and packed with depth, The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris uses a unique card system to simulate the tough strategic and operational choices of the Early War period.
  • Larry Bond’s Harpoon – Ultimate Edition – Naval warfare fan? Harpoon – Ultimate Edition is the best and most comprehensive compilation of computer Harpoon games ever assembled!
  • Revolution Under Siege – A pivotal moment history often neglected is covered in all its glory in this turn-based grand strategy game on the Russian Revolution.
Here’s the full list of games on sale (prices are all in digital download version):

This is the current sale thread, just to avoid confusion with the other one that's been bumped.

This is very tempting... but is it possible the discounts haven't quite made it through to the online shop yet ?
(at least the one selling in pounds to the UK market)

I'm probably being too keen,

Chris

There might be some caching going on for a bit in terms of the prices you see in the store, but if you add it to your cart you should see the uncached price.

Yes, I think that may well have done it
(or I was being daft before - quite possible)

Many thanks

Just a suggestion on the store page to add a quick search link to all of these sale products ... or have them as a separate genre (and therefore on the same page) ...

Also might have been nice to hyper-link all of these in the xls spreadsheet on this page too ... to their product page.

You know the lazy child in all of us

Now to the picking and choosing ...

Purchased "the blue and the grey". The download started one hour ago but there is no progress. No remaining time or download rate does appear in the download window. Never had this before. Any idea?

Edit: Well ok. The download stopped. Time expired. Tried again and the same as it seems. Something broken?

Guess Ill have to wait for the box. Lets see if the shippment really takes only two days due to the new matrix warehouse in germany...

That's definitely some kind of glitch. Can you e-mail me your order number to erikr@matrixgames.com, please? I'll send you a new download link.

Hello. I am not sure if this is the correct forum but where do you go about order issues?

I tried to purchase some of the games that were on sale as gifts for X-Mas but when you go to check out and get ready to give them the CC info, the prices do not reflect the "sale price." Is there a coupon code or something we are to use?

Hi AkomoCombine,

I have not heard of Canadian customers being charged duty. Orders to Canada ship from Oregon in the United States.

Regards,

Across the Dnepr: Second Edition


AtD:2nd is listed as discounted, but when I click the link it shows $39.95 for digital download. I thought that was the original price, or do I have a bad memory?

I understood your response about "If it is not on the white and yellow sheet it is not on sale." I was confused as usual. That's the problem with having the "mentality of a 7 year old.

Hope I did not offend you.

LOL. 7, that was a lifetime ago. I just can't stop mentioning the accusation by someone on the forum of my level of mentality. But I will never say who, he knows.

Thanks for everything, including the divorce inducing WitE.
