Back to News Listing Battles from the Bulge Is Updated

Posted: Sunday, August 22, 2010 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

Improved stability, bug fixes, and more keep this well-oiled war machine running smoothly!

Matrix Games and Panther Games (www.panthergames.com) are pleased to release the comprehensive 4.1.235 first update for their award winning WWII operational-level wargame, Command Ops: Battles from the Bulge. This major update includes fixes for a number of crashes and freezes that affected some players in addition to resolving some AI issues. Also coming in this update are a few tweaks to the scenarios and assorted other bug fixes.

 

Battles from the Bulge has made an impressive name for itself, scoring a fantastic 9 out of 10 on Eurogamer.dk, a Gamer’s Hall Silver Award, a perfect score on Out of Eight Reviews, and an 8 out of 10 on Cyberstratege!

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Command Ops: Battles from the Bulge is extremely popular with both gamers and critics and its no secret why.  Those who have played it feel it is the most realistic simulation of operational command ever developed for the computer.  This update is like a fresh coat of wax on a sports car - it polishes the gameplay and smooths out any rough edges that showed up in the initial release.”

 

Assess, Plan, Order and React – The Decisions are Yours!

 

Acclaimed developer Panther Games brings us to the bitter cold of Western Europe during the Winter of 1944 with Command Ops: Battles from the Bulge.  Although the Battle of the Bulge is ground that has been visited by wargamers before, it has never been done with this level of fidelity and historical accuracy.  The most advanced and realistic model of command decision-making implemented to date in a commercial wargame, combined with thorough historical research on the battlefields and forces involved in this campaign sets Command Ops: Battles from the Bulge apart from the competition.

 

Set during the hard fighting of the Battle of the Bulge, Command Ops lets gamers assess, plan, order and react at the operational level just like a real Corps, Division and Brigade commander. Hundreds of hours of gameplay await armchair generals who will be challenged to fight their way across 27 scenarios that stretch from the initial German surprise offensive to the powerful Allied counter-attack.

 

Command Ops: Battles from the Bulge also sports some of the most advanced and impressive AI ever devised in an operational-level wargame!  It is your choice whether to manage every detail of your army, or have the friendly AI manage the war on a lower level while you plan the larger scale maneuvers designed to make short work of your enemy.  Just as a historical commander, you can choose where you need to step in and when you need to stand back and let your subordinates do their jobs. 

 

The enemy AI will use its skill to launch well-timed and coordinated strikes as it probes your lines for weakness while realistically reacting to your movements!  In addition, for the enthusiastic mod community awaiting Command Ops, powerful tools like MapMaker and ScenMaker allow for the creation of maps and scenarios further adding to already near limitless replayability.

 

Get the update here. The update is comprehensive and will bring all versions of Battles from the Bulge to version 4.1.235.
