The Cold War turns hot and the fears of decades become a reality as Warsaw Pact forces cross the West German border.

Central Europe is once again the main battlefield for global supremacy but this time the confrontation is between the two Superpowers and their Allies in NATO and the Warsaw Pact. This Third World War will feature the most mobile, deadly and terrifying weapons ever seen.

Will it remain a conventional war, or will chemical and nuclear weapons be released and bring the world to the brink of armageddon?

Flashpoint Campaign: Germany Reforged is a “Battle Pack” for Flashpoint Campaigns: Red Storm, featuring the original scenarios from the first Flashpoint Germany fully updated to the new Flashpoint Campaigns engine, along with a new never before seen mega-map!

This incredible modern wargame will stun you with its ability to represent the high complexity of modern warfare without overwhelming the player. Along with modelling virtually every modern weapon system of the 1980s NATO and Warsaw Pact, the system elegantly portrays the friction of the modern battlefield with a particular emphasis on command and control and electronic warfare.

This expansion brings 17 scenarios with 43 variants along with the original Flashpoint Germany maps completely redone to new graphical standards (withhexes replacing the old grid), a new map “Eiterfeld” which is the largest to date for the Flashpoint Campaigns system (40 x 30 km versus the previous 20 x 15 km) and an abundance of additional action for American, British, West German and Soviet forces alike!

Grab the game now!

Flashpoint Campaigns: Germany Reforged is an expansion for Flashpoint Campaigns: Red Storm and requires Flashpoint Campaigns: Red Storm 2.0.10 to play. You can download the 2.0.10 update here (check the changelog here)

The game is also available via Steam

This is by far and away not all that's coming your way!

It's just we only have so many hours in a day and life likes to interrupt at every opportunity. Still, I wouldn't be surprised to see more content coming your way soon.

Good Hunting.

Charles ran with these!!

You should probably put a little money away for a new monitor. The intensity of these could crack your current monitor!

Good Hunting.

Charles Belva did an outstanding job on these conversions and they would not have happened without him. Thank you Charles!

Could we get William's replacement maps with grid theme for the new Reforged maps?  A grid overlay posted to 3rd Party Maps for other custom maps would be helpful too.  Thanks!

Man, Matrix yer price conversions are WAY off. $17.99 USD is not $28.99 CDN! That's $1.61 CDN to $1 USD!?! WTF?!?

Its 26.18 CDN, not 28.99 but that is a direct conversion. We do not set prices in any other currency than US$. There is absolutely nothing we can do about the exchange rate :)

Errmm.. right. I mixed up the sale price of $17.99USD with the non-sale price of $28.99 CDN. Still $26.18 is $1.45CDN to the USD. Currently the exchange is $1.33CDN.... $0.12 on the dollar for "exchange" seems a bit much....

Yes but the installer will do that for you.

Bismarck is correct. Defending neatly let us know if you have installation or launch problems. Some folks are unfortunately dealing with some and we are working to resolve them.

Actually, I still can't open the links in this thread, I get the same error. Note that I can open most other links in the various Matrix forums.

I found the game via the Matrix store, but don't think that the description is very clear. I found these two points confusing:
*****
--The return of Flashpoint Germany, entirely remastered with the latest On Target Simulations engine.
...
--17 scenarios with 43 variations that simulate realistic what-if situations in an hypothetical "Cold War gone hot" war.
*************
So this is all of the original scenarios, which have been "remastered"? Or is it the remastered original scenarios plus 17 new scenarios? If the latter, I suggest adding the word "new" to the last bullet point.

Links work for me and the re-mastered originals plus 17 new scenarios.

Any error messages? Have you contacted the Slitherine webmasters? Possible AV conflicts?
