Hi Guys,

A fair while back I remember reading about a discussion about the potential of a new Steel Panthers game. I still love the original and am trying to play SPWAWGE at present. Any news on IF a new game is in the offing?

Regards

Work is ongoing, and the guts are progressing well. We want to be sure to both fulfill the expectations of both the hardcore SP fans, as well as bring the game into the modern era with regards to the look and UX. It's an exciting project, but one that is moving forward.

Cheers

Pip

Pip.. this is fantastic news. Way early, I know.. but is a post-WW2 combat version a possibility for the future? Either way, your reply has made my day.

is there a map size limit in the new engine? Steel Panthers was all about maneuver, that and pounding the crap out of the enemy with arty.I ask because the Santus Reach maps dont look that big.

The limits are gameplay related. The current engine, if it exists of course, allows for much larger maps :)

Cheers

It's like pulling out a tooth with pliers trying to get any info about this Steel Tigers project.

It has been a year and a half since

Amazing. Thanks. Can't wait. Are mega campaigns going to be a part of it? I love them!

Does that "We" include Gary Grigsby?

If so, I think that technically, this would be another update of "Panzer Strike" of which, Steel Panthers was an update.

If not, what's the point?

(And what is an "ux?" ...The illegitimate offspring of a beast of burden?).

UX is User Experience. The combined effect of the UI, flow, and feedback that makes the way the user experiences the game, for good or bad.

Cheers

I had bought the ShrapnelGames version, however I almost don't play it, for, even the game can be launched in a big resolution, it is in fact worst: writings are tiny.
So, the very few I play, even I bought it, is only in the free version, small resolution.

Yea, what's the skinny on the development of Steel Tigers? 2019 release? 2020?
