Back to News Listing It's D-Day - Allied Corps storms the beaches!

Posted: Thursday, June 06, 2013 by Filippo Chianetta

Type: Press Release

 

D-Day. It was the 6th of June 1944, when U.S. General Eisenhower, the supreme commander of Allied Expeditionary Forces in Europe gave the go-ahead for Operation Overlord, the largest amphibious military operation in history.

That day almost 20.000 parachutists touched down on French ground and 6,000 landing craft, ships and other vessels carrying 176,000 troops stormed the Normandy coast after leaving England. On their ships, soldiers were anxiously waiting to land and commence the struggle to free Europe with proud heart and firm hand.

Today,we,along with Flashback Games Studio and the Lordz Games Studio (www.thelordzgamesstudio.com), are hugely proud to announce the long-awaited release of Panzer Corps: Allied Corps, the spiritual successor to Allied General!

This date has been intentionally chosen to commemorate this historic event with a game that follows in the footsteps of those brave men and women who put their lives at risk to free Europe from tyranny.

The Allied Corps campaign contains 30 scenarios, which take the player from Africa to Europe covering the war from 1940 to 1945. It features 900 units from more than 30 Nations including Great Britain, USA, France, Poland, Germany, Italy and more. It allows multiplayer via our asynchronous server and modding through the scenario editor.

 “We designed it, we tested it and we polished it: now it is ready to make Allied General fans everywhere happy” said Iain McNeil, Director of Development of the Slitherine Group. “We spent a lot of time and effort to make this possible improving the Panzer Corps engine and the results are amazing. We really hope wargamers will like Allied Corps”.

 

Take note: Allied Corps is a stand-alone game and does NOT require Panzer Corps to play

Panzer Corps: Operation Sea Lion announced!

Wednesday, July 29, 2015

Panzer Corps: Operation Sea Lion announced!

“[However] a German invasion of England would be a matter of life and death for the British, and they would unhesitatingly commit their naval forces, to the last ship and the last man, into an all-out fight for survival”  Erich Raeder, commander-in-chief of the Kriegsmarine 

Great Britain, the propulsive core of the British Empire, is surrounded. After the fall of Scandinavia and France only a few miles of sea divide the land of Albion from the Reich. It’s only thanks to the Home Fleet and to the Royal Air Force that the Germans are not yet raising their flag on the Big Ben.

But for how long?

Pike and Shot: Campaigns announced!

Monday, July 20, 2015

Never do any enemy a small injury for they are like a snake which is half beaten and it will strike back the first chance it gets.” – Niccolò Machiavelli

Boots are pounding the ground for days. Dirty and grimy soldiers are marching in the ranks with the sergeants trying (mostly in vain) to keep them disciplined.

Too many days have passed since the last plundered town and now food is starting to run out. The men are nervous.

Suddenly a cry from the head of the column. Scouting cavalry have spotted enemy heavy pikemen formations supported by artillery.

It is time to spill some blood!

Pike and Shot: Campaigns is a brand new all-in-one package. It includes the Pike and Shot base game and the Tercio to Salvo expansion, plus 21 new skirmish army lists for the rest of Europe during the period of the Italian Wars (1494-1559) covering the armies of England, Scotland, Denmark, Sweden, German States, Austria, Hungary, Transylvania, the Ottoman Empire, Poland-Lithuania and Russia!

But the main new feature is the strategic map system, implemented to allow you to lead your armies to victory over an entire theatre of operations, taking into account strategic considerations such as terrain, available manpower, supply, attrition, sieges and economic damage.
