It's by Lock and Load publishing, looks similar to their title Tank On Tank Digital, which I enjoy, and judging by the videos look close to release.

Is interesting but they have a serious problem to release titles... 3 years and no Heroes of the Pacific title, same with an interesting cold war game (similar to this WWII title) that has a video from... 2014 but no more info about it... is true that this looks more mature but until i see it released...

They have announced a new 'Rise and Decline of the Third Reich' game. Must confess, I do not know much about it.

They must be short staffed on releasing any Digital Games. Most of their digital title have been in the works for years.

LnLP has some more news to release from WBC, We are proud to announce we have signed an agreement with John Prados to release a new edition of Rise and Decline of the Third Reich both in a table top and digital formats. We will be publishing a new design by John that we are calling Third Reich the card game. We will get a better going forward. Here is the first look at this new card game and design. We don't have a lot to report yet but we will in the coming months. We will have more news coming this week from WBC.

No, Nations at War is based on the older World at War series (now rebooted as W@W '85), which is a platoon-level Cold-War-goes-hot-in-Europe game.

N@W was the WWII implementation of that same rules set.

Nope. No way. Absolutely not. It's a re-implementation of one of the most famous Avalon Hill board games of all time, from the mid-70s. John Prados (the original designer) has control of the rights, and had an updated version published by Avalanche Press about 15 years ago, and is now taking it over to David Heath's LNLP for the new update.

I refer to PC games... LnL was in the limbo for 3 years with change of dev team included... same with the WWIII title. They are like the Lords announcing titles but at least they release screens or videos

To be fair i was more interested in WWIII version over the WWII version.

Something i notice is game has no skirmish-editor this limit a lot value for me for a game like this...since Steel Panthers if a game has skirmish i prefer it to predefined scens.

David Heath indicated "both in a table top and digital formats." So, does this mean digital print & play boardgame and no PC computer wargame version? That's not good news. If true though, John Prados and LnL could still authorize someone to develop a computer game version someday.

Command Ops 2..is the game I've slowly lost faith in...Not sure how many years now we've been told about did mounted ops and am East Front title. Instead we got a new UI which if you haven't got an uber widescreen monitor or more than one monitor I find it worse than the original one, some OK aspects but on the whole not keen.

When Panther left Matrix I couldn't understand why on earth Matrix let them go being such an innovative flagship wargame..now it's starting to make sense.

Saying this I want nothing more than to see a new revamped CO game.

I really liked "Conquest of the Aegean", I still have it printed on a CD somewhere. Then came all this update stuff and more money and I just lost Interest too. Oh well...

or maybe Matrix didn't have as much say in the matter as you think, and Dave O'Connor just wanted to go somewhere else.

Just in from David (literally as I type this): they're going to do both digital & tabletop, so you're right.

When folks were asking if it's a digital game, though, that's partly true.
But it started as one of the most beloved and oft-played classics of the AH pantheon, and folks who don't recognize that just seem like the Kanye fans that think his duet with Paul McCartney was going to really boost Paul's career for him...

I bought the whole package, and the new modules are nice for CO2. But no patch in 15 months for us loyal supporters says it all for me. A patch is coming out, but the changes are insignificant for actual game play improvements and bug fixes.

I didn't read your Tank on Tank review, but Heroes of Normandy and LNL Heroes of Stalingrad blow it away. It is for beginners only, imho.

sometimes even experienced gamers want something lightweight and quick-playing, so we can play 3-4 games in an afternoon, instead of 3 turns of a giant complex slog.
