Type: Press Release

 

Matrix Games and NorbSoftDev (www.norbsoftdev.net) announce the upcoming release of Brandy Station, the latest expansion for the definitive American Civil War grand tactical wargame of this generation: Scourge of War.

On June 9, 1863 at 4:30 a.m. the largest cavalry battle of the American Civil War; the Battle of Brandy Station began.  It was one of the earliest battles of the Gettysburg campaign, fought by the Union cavalry under Maj. Gen. Alfred Pleasonton against Maj. Gen. J.E.B. Stuart's Confederate cavalry.

Pleasonton launched a surprise dawn attack on Stuart's cavalry at Brandy Station, Virginia. Despite the advantage of surprise and after an all-day fight with alternating fortunes, the Union forces retired.

Tactically the battle was drawn, although arguably Stuart could claim victory as he held the field at the end of the day. However, for the longer term progress of the war the outcome of the battle was a significant milestone since it signaled the demise of the Confederate cavalry's dominance in the war.

Scourge of War: Brandy Station covers the entire Battle -- the largest cavalry engagement ever fought on North American soil. It features a 5 x 5 mile game map, ten single player scenarios and five multiplayer scenarios. Also including a scenario overview map in PDF format showing the location of each scenario and its starting time.

Scourge of War: Brandy Station is released in commemoration of the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War which changed the fate of North America and is sure to satisfy any strategy aficionado of the period.

Strategic Command Blog Post #2: 'Artificial Intelligence'

Thursday, August 11, 2016

In 2002, the original Strategic Command game was a relatively simple construct. With a limited rule set and a much smaller 62x37 map of approximately 2300 hexes, the requirements for the AI were not necessarily trivial, but in general terms, they were straightforward.

Fast forward to today, and Strategic Command WWII: War in Europe has been expanded into a modifiable hexagonal game engine allowing map sizes of up to 512x512 or 262,144 hexes!
