Catch a glimpse through the fog of the battlefield and your allies and enemies

Matrix Games and Slitherine (www.slitherine.com) are excited to release a teaser trailer for the upcoming real-time tactical strategy game Close Combat: Panthers in the Fog. This latest teaser introduces the dramatic history of the campaign that Close Combat: Panthers in the Fog will center around, while giving glimpses into the battlefield and some of the units players will command or face.

View the teaser trailer now on either the Matrix Games or Slitherine YouTube channels. Be sure to also subscribe to the channels to view the latest videos, trailers, and more as soon as they become available!

For the Allies the Normandy landings of June were followed by two months of hard fighting in difficult terrain against a tenacious German defense. But in late July the U.S. Army’s Operation Cobra has finally created a decisive breach in the weakened German line. Patton’s 3rd Army races through the opening along the western coast of France and into the clear, driving for the Brittany Ports. Faced with the choice between retreat and last-ditch counter-attack, the Germans struggle to assemble a panzer force for one more charge. Can the Germans move quickly enough to overcome a desperate situation, push through to Avranches on the French coast, and cut off Patton’s racing spearheads? Or will the thinly stretched Americans troops screening Patton’s flank be able to hold out, regroup, and hold the vital lifeline open?

Close Combat: Panthers in the Fog is the latest upcoming release in the critically-acclaimed Close Combat series. Centered around the German Army’s counter-attack at Mortain, France in 1944, Close Combat: Panthers in the Fog tasks the players with leading the counter-attack or commanding the Allies as they make their stand against the Wehrmacht’s last-ditch effort. Close Combat: Panthers in the Fog is receiving an all-star treatment as the final 2D Close Combat: updated 32-bit visuals, new features such as mounting units and troops, and an enhanced multiplayer lobby system from Slitherine.

For more information on Close Combat: Panthers in the Fog, check out the official product pages on the Matrix Games or Slitherine website.

Not being funny here but trailers with no gameplay are a total waste of time both yours in the making and the customers in viewing.

I have to agree with wodin for a change.

At least show a map or some units.

You've named it "Teaser Trailer for Close Combat: Panthers in the Fog Released!" - all it done was piss me off. The naming might be splitting hairs - but it's a hair you choose to split.

Complete waste of my time and only served to put the thought in my head "WTF?"

It was only a minute long - and that's it's only saving grace.

+1 with Wodin and junk2drive - from the few websites I visit, it only seems to have managed to get backs up.

That's a marketing screw up.

+1 here. The word Trailer sticks clearly out in Teaser Trailer. I was also very dissapointed seeing no gameplay. and my first thought was "Hey is there something they try to hide?"

I don't think we have a reason to hide anything, we went for something a bit atmospheric to get the mood set and generate some buzz :) The background does contain glimpses of the terrain, units, etc.

I'm sure you guys will enjoy the gameplay trailer when we release it, we did want to make this last 2D version of Close Combat really sing and the team has been hard at work on it!

Well - it's certainly created some buzz - though not in the way I expect you thought. Though I guess the saying "any publicity is "good" publicity" might be applied here!

What the Halibut was that ? Looked like ants on a picnic blanket or maybe even sandcrabs, either way, a bummer.

Not much of a trailer so it is indeed a tease. But it did increase my interest for the game. Maybe because my expectations were low to begin with.

And do you fear "FALIURE" to release a real "trailer" soon, might lead to everyone losing socks???

I suppose $,000's got spent on it, more costs added to the poor buyer.

It showed NOTHING about the game.
