Type: Press Release

 

Matrix Games  is proud to announce the release of Lost Battles, the latest expansion for the award-winning World War II strategy mega-game Gary Grigsby's War in the East.

Lost Battles adds more than 10 new scenarios covering some of the most interesting battles on the Eastern Front to the critically-acclaimed wargame.

Choose from short scenarios like Operation Konrad (Germany’s desperate defense of Budapest) and Operation Mars (Soviet offensives Operation Mars and Jupiter) or the longer ones like the Battle for Moscow (Operation Typhoon and the subsequent Soviet winter counter-offensive) and Vistula to Berlin (the final offensives through Poland and the fall of Berlin).

Adding to these are three full Campaigns: Winter 42-43 (the Soviet 42-43 winter counter-offensives including the recapture of Stalingrad),  Stalingrad to Berlin Campaign ( the Soviet 42-43 winter counter-offensives which continues until the end of the war) and the 1941-45 Campaign (the standard full campaign with added sudden death victory conditions for both sides).

 

Concurrent with the new expansion release, the v1.07.08 official update is also now available for Gary Grigsby's War in the East: The German-Soviet War 1941-1945. This major update brings significant AI and balance improvements, changes the save game structure to eliminate certain exploits in multiplayer, restores some upgrade paths to address late war issues and includes additional bug fixes and data changes.  This update is designed to work together with Lost Battles for the best possible experience, but also brings gameplay improvements to all existing scenarios and campaigns.

Check the dedicated  Forum page to view the full change list.

To download the update, players can run “Check for Update” via the game menu or download it directly from the game’s download page here .

Pike & Shot is now available for iPad!

Thursday, January 29, 2015

"We may employ artifice to deceive a rival, anything against our enemies.” (Cardinal Richelieu – French Statesman)

From a strategic point of view, the period presents a brilliant evolution of military units and approaches thanks to the development of new technologies. Integrating firearms and artillery into an army is not an easy task, and only the most flexible commanders will be able to combine them perfectly!

To End All Wars gets its first expansion!

Wednesday, January 28, 2015

So long as the opposing forces are at the outset approximately equal in numbers and moral and there are no flanks to turn, a long struggle for supremacy is inevitable” (General Sir Douglas Haig - British commander)

Praised for its historical accuracy and its capacity to properly cover a huge conflict that involved thousands of men and units, Ageod’s WW1 wargame, To End All Wars, amazed history buffs last summer. However, the huge scale of the Grand Campaign was demanding a lot of time and a deep involvement from the players. So the developers went back to the WW1 battlefields and selected a list of smaller scenarios able to not only offer an original approach of the war, but also to provide true tactical operational challenges to their fans!
