We along with Western Civilization Software (www.west-civ.com) are happy to announce the release of the v1.18 update for the critically-acclaimed World War 2 tactical wargame Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear!

The v1.18 update contains numerous fixes as well as rule changes to keep the game balanced and in fit fighting form, including a fix for a recent multiplayer issue. The goal of this and recent updates has been to fully implement the Classic board game AP activation system, as well as adding a host of other features and improvements, including super high resolution 2D maps and counters.  This update includes fixes for units low on APs not being able to fire during a group fire, as well as a fix for spent units attached to groups during a Command or CAPs action incorrectly becoming unspent. Additional tweaks include the pass action now finishing the activation of currently selected units in Classic AP mode.


The v1.18 update is comprehensive and will bring all versions of Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear! to v1.18. To download the update, players can run “Check for Update” via the game menu or on the game’s download page. To see the full changelog click here

Also remember the DEMO is available. The demo includes three scenarios, as well as some of the awesome features of the v1.14 update like the Classic AP system, 2D board game-style maps, and high resolution unit counters, as well as the ability to play the demo scenarios through the multiplayer lobby with other demo players and even players with the full game.

    Strategic Command Situational AAR The Road to Warsaw part 1

    Wednesday, October 19, 2016

    Greetings, and welcome to this second series of beta After Action Reports (AAR) for Strategic Command WWII: War in Europe. This and succeeding AARs will be a little different from others you may have read. First, they will not concentrate on a single campaign; more reports will be forthcoming, but each will instead focus on a different perspective and theatre, such as Germany attacking Poland; the Allies defending North Africa; and the Soviets attempting to repel the Axis invaders, among others. I will also vary the focus onto certain aspects, such as naval warfare, Diplomacy, Research, and so on. 


    New episode for Command LIVE! Don of a New Era is announced!

    Tuesday, October 18, 2016

    The recent asymmetrical conflict in Ukraine is only the last one plaguing the region. Situation is still fragile in Moldova and Transnistria, where tensions between Pro-Russian separatists and the rest of the population are part of the daily agenda.

    How far Moscow will want to go further in escalating the conflict? And will the NATO countries be able to overcome their differences and act as a whole?
