Back to News Listing Flashpoint Germany Is Updated

Posted: Thursday, November 29, 2007 by Matrix Support

Type: Update

Some upgrades and improvements to this addicting turn-based Cold War-era strategy game.

Matrix Games and On Target Simulations are happy to announce the release of a new update for Flashpoint Germany. This latest update comes with a handful of changes which include an improvement to browsing unit waypoints and a fixed memory leak in Windows Vista.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “This update illustrates our continuing support for released titles and our commitment to Vista compatibility for the future.  Thanks to the efforts of the dedicated Flashpoint Germany team, gamers will be able to continue enjoying this game for years to come on the new Vista operating system.”

 

Rob Crandall of On Target Simulations added “This update is short but sweet and we’re more than happy to continue improving our product as gamers continue to enjoy Flashpoint Germany.”

 

Flashpoint Germany is a powder keg of a game, set in one of the most dangerous periods of the Cold War. The historical fall of the Berlin Wall, which heralded the fall of Communism throughout Europe, does not happen. Instead, the Soviet Union, knowing that collapse is on the horizon, decides to seek a military solution to their internal problems. The invasion of Western Europe by huge Soviet and Warsaw Pact armies threatens to overwhelm the desperate NATO forces that deploy to stem the tide. Will you choose to lead Mother Russia’s men and material to a victory that will see the Hammer and Sickle raised over the Rhine? Or will you take the grim task of commanding the small but capable NATO forces, looking to extract a high toll from the onrushing invaders? Regardless of outcome, this most likely will be the war to end all wars!

 

Get more information on Flashpoint Germany from its official Matrix Games webpage. This update is comprehensive and will bring Flashpoint Germany up to version 1.13.

“The fruits of victory are tumbling into our mouths too quickly” – Japanese Emperor Hirohito, 1942

6 months after Pearl Harbour, the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere has reached its peak of expansion. Australia and New Zealand are under direct threat, weakening more and more the American ability to intervene in the Pacific.

Only decisive actions to take the initiative could allow the Allies to re-establish a naval and air superiority over the Imperial Army.

And that tiny island named Guadalcanal seems like the best place to start...

Victory and Glory Card System!

Tuesday, February 02, 2016

To win a war, armies might be not enough. You need political skills as well, allowing you to change the balance of power in your favour, forge new alliances and isolate the enemy.

The endless conflict  between Napoleon and the several Coalitions formed against him was fought following exactly this simple rule. Great Britain didn’t have a ground army able to counter alone the capacity of the Revolutionary France and was forced to convince and support potential allies on the Continent.

On the other hand, Napoleon took many risks to manage fighting on multiple fronts at once, stretching his resources and wasting time and materials.
