Back to News Listing Conquest of the Aegean Is Updated

Posted: Friday, February 29, 2008 by Sean Drummy

Type: Update

A new v3 update for this continuous time wargame advances to the front

Matrix Games and Panther Games (www.panthergames.com) are pleased to announce that another major update is now available for the pausable continuous time World War II wargame, Conquest of the Aegean. This third updated will fixes all known issues in addition to improving several scenarios and adding multiple reinforcement schedules to increase replay value.

As an added bonus, the update also includes two brand new scenarios with some significant new content.  Gamble and Scramble is a hypothetical scenario covering a major Allied counter offensive against the German main supply route in Greece.  Bir el Gubi covers the famous North African desert battle at the outset of Operation Crusader. A new map of the Bir el Gubi area is included and new estabs sufficient to cover all the major force types that participated in the 1941 desert battles have been added!

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “This new update for Conquest of the Aegean improves upon an already respected and beloved game that stands among the most realistic operational simulations ever developed.  The challenges of the Greek campaign have never been better presented than in Conquest of the Aegean and the new desert battle takes it in a new and exciting direction.”

In Conquest of the Aegean, players get to take on the role of either an Allied or German commander during World War II and match their wits against either a computer controlled opponent or a human opponent via LAN or the internet. You can play as the Allies in a desperate fight to maintain a foothold on the southern flank of Europe using the mountainous Greek terrain to achieve concealment and surprise. Or, the for the more aggressive commanders among us, you can fight as the Axis who are tasked with driving as hard and fast as possible into Greek territory to assure an expedient and inexpensive victory.
 
Based off of the very successful Airborne Assault: Highway to the Reich, this operational “pausable continuous time” strategy game represents a major step forward from its predecessor. Not only does Conquest of the Aegean take you to a new theatre of the Second World War, but also major changes to the game have been made engine to make it an even more detailed and realistic recreation of WWII combat. To breathe fresh life into Airborne Assault while still capturing the strategically intense but fun gameplay that came with previous titles in the series, Conquest of the Aegean includes a realistic resupply system, a vastly enhanced interface, and improved weather patterns, all complemented by 20 brand new maps and 30 brand new scenarios.

This update is comprehensive and will bring the game up to version 3.3.147E. Get the update from the COTA downloads page.

Aggressors - Dev Interview!

Friday, May 18, 2018

We had the chance to chat a bit with Pavel Kubat, developer of Aggressors, our epic upcoming 4x game set during Ancient Rome!
 
Matrix: First of all, thanks a lot for your time and congrats for the outstanding job with this game so far. What moved you to adopt the Ancient Mediterranean during the period of the rise of Rome as setting?
 
Pavel Kubat: The Aggressors was initially supposed to be released as a multimod game, but I eventually realized that this was simply not possible. Not just because we had a very small development team, but also because the amount of testing required and likelihood of bugs would not let us finish it.

Battlestar Galactica Deadlock - Dev Diary #6 'The Broken Alliance'

Tuesday, May 15, 2018

Youd think theyd be better shots,said Tobias. There were slugs littered throughout the plating beneath him, but the belt armour had taken most of it. It was like the Cylons hadnt even tried to aim anywhere else. Yknow, for sentient calculators.

Emaline crested the hull a few metres further down, the headlamps of her helmet lost in the flood lighting of the yards dock. Why should they be any better? Field ballistics requires intuition just as much as calculations.
