Take to the skies over Europe and secure the Highway to the Reich in this new expansion.

Matrix Games, Slitherine, and Panther Games (www.panthergames.com) are thrilled to announce the latest addition to the award-winning Command Ops series, Command Ops: Highway to the Reich! This exciting expansion builds upon the award-winning Command Ops game engine, revered for its realism and modeling of command, to give players many new scenarios, much more modding ability, and even a mega scenario that can serve as a continuous mini-campaign!

Be sure to check out the brand new AAR at The Wargamer to see Command Ops: Highway to the Reich in action.

Command Ops: Highway to the Reich will be released later this month and will be available for $24.99 Download / $34.99 Physical through the Matrix Games online store.

About Command Ops: Highway to the Reich

As the first official expansion pack for the award winning Command Ops series, Command Ops: Highway to the Reich from acclaimed developer Panther Games brings us to the setting of one of the most epic and controversial battles of World War II: Operation Market-Garden. The Highway to the Reich expansion pack is a set of 13 scenarios covering all of the major actions that took place during the Market Garden Campaign in Holland during September 1944.

The scenarios cover every major engagement along Hell’s Highway, from the surprise capture of Joe’s Bridge by the Irish Guards a week before the offensive to the final battles on “The Island” south of Arnhem. The dramatic parachute and glider landings of the US 82nd and 101st Airborne, The British 1st Airborne and the Polish Brigade are all represented on some of the largest maps ever created for the series and the largest “campaign” scenario in this system to date. More than just a conversion of the old scenarios to play on the new system, the Expansion Pack represents a major update of Panther Games ground breaking classic game Highway to the Reich, incorporating numerous corrections to Maps, Orders of Battle, Unit Compositions, Reinforcement Schedules, and overall game play.

Command Ops: Highway to the Reich is an expansion for Command Ops: Battles from the Bulge and requires the base game to play.

Get more information on Command Ops: Highway to the Reich from its official product page.

Price never was an object for this product. BTW I guess the patch will come with the add-on.

Excellent, I wasn't that bothered about it to be honest as I own the two previous MG games, but at that price it's a must have.

I'm afriad not. This was something I wanted to offer, with a higher initial price. However, the original HTTR was offered both as an online and a retail product. Matrix could readily verify the bonafides of online purchases but it would have been a very expensive and time consuming process to try and do so for the retail sales. In the end we opted to lower the retail price for all customers and that is what you have now.

Fair enough. The price announced is reasonable (and excellent for those without HttR.. not that they deserve it ), and I've not been able to say that about a Matrix game in a while.

A must buy. I note the bit about a first expansion pack.. don't say we might finally get to see 'Patton's Charge' after all these years??

Funny thing is I kept this box as proof of purchase from Go Gamer, and after all these years it is still is great shape...

No not Patton's Charge but we have another expansion pack in the works. This will cover the alternative staff plan for Wacht am Rhine, sometimes referred to as the "Knock on All Doors" solution. Paul van Doren is the lead designer on this and he's been pain stakingly researching this for quite some time now. We are testing the first four scenarios right now. I'm not sure as to when it will be completed and I'm not going to make a guess, so don't ask. It's just in the works.

I agree that the HTTR extension is very fairly priced and it'll be a first day buy for me.
As an owner of the original HTTR, and RDOA, my copy of the 2004 Strategy Guide had got pretty tatty
so I thought I'd treat myself to another one. The price £11.00 for a download So your substantial extension will cost me around only £5 more than Matrix are charging for an eight year old Guide to a first generation
game. Ludicrous.

Needless to say the 'No Sale' flag went up.

Great to see a new release !
Will there ever be a "Deluxe" edition with both the base game and the addon for a slightly discount in the near future ?

simovitch,

it's been awhile since I played it due to the fact the new UI since then has spoiled me and I find HTTR now difficult as I miss the new features since then.

However I'm sure you will get plenty of feedback, I'm also certain it will be positive.

I still actively play HTTR and COTA, along with BFTB...although the engine has evolved to what it is today, each game is IMHO is still enjoyable as a stand-alone product in its own right.

It will be nice however to play some of those classic scenarios with the new functionality and AAR.

It's really great to see HTTR to be revived this way. Let's face it, the added functionalities of COTA and BFTB made me neglect HTTR for quite some time. It will be with great pleasure I'll reconnect with this revamped HTTR. Price is absolutely fair and fine.

I'm waiting to compare it myself; I assume the new supply system will leave units stranded in Arnhem in more desperate straights than in the current game.

Same here. I still play it from time to time. Market Garden has always been one of my "favourite battles" of WWII.
I still use the excellent Strategy Guide as I find it usefull for both COTA and BftB.
