Back to News Listing Scourge of War the charge for Brandy Station!

Posted: Monday, June 10, 2013 by Filippo Chianetta

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.

Pike & Shot is now available!

Thursday, October 16, 2014

"Not only strike while the iron is hot, but make it hot by striking.” (Oliver Cromwell – English military and political leader)

In the age of Pike and Shot, mighty struggles erupted across Europe for religious, political or dynastic causes. The greatest powers of that period were regularly involved in conflicts and struggles to increase their dominance over the continent. Some countries have also to deal with inner tensions and are torn apart between factions. War is in the air. But war has changed. Due to the development of new technologies, traditional medieval tactics have been substituted with a totally different approach to effectively utilise the new formations and weapons.
