Posted: Wednesday, December 17, 2003 by Shaun Wallace

Type: Demo

Highly Rated Sci-Fi Strategy Game Demo Available Now! Matrix Games (http://www.matrixgames.com) is pleased to announce that a demo version of Massive Assault by Wargaming.Net (http://www.wargaming.net has been completed and is now available for download. David Heath, Director of Operations for Matrix Games, said “Massive Assault has been earning widespread acclaim as a thinking man's strategy game with top notch graphics and sound. We feel the best way to spread the word about this excellent title is to let gamers try it themselves through a limited demo. If you have any interest in strategy games, you owe it to yourself to give this one a try.” Click on "Full Story" for more info.

"Considering the fact Massive Assault does not follow any of the existing gaming formulas, but rather presents a unique gameplay style, we decided that this demo should include much more than a usual demo has," said Victor Kislyi, the president of Wargaming.net. "I believe, the players will get up to 5 hours of dynamic gameplay - and those, who get addicted, may keep playing for days, because each time you restart the World War, the game is different!"

With a recent 91% Editor's Choice rating in Game Chronicles to add to a host of positive reviews, Massive Assault should be on every strategy gamer's list of games to consider. The new demo incorporates an update to the game engine, which is now available separately to existing owners of Massive Assault .

Massive Assault utilizes Wargaming.net's high-performance 3D engine giving revolutionary look and feel to a turn based global-scale game. Gameplay is smooth and easy-to-learn, while set in a dynamic strategic environment where the tide can turn time and again. Massive Assault contains an original political system, preserving intrigue throughout each scenario, campaign or war. Each side has allied countries, unknown to the enemy. Secret allies can disclose and provide troops at any moment, surprisingly shifting the power balance in a particular region. The secret alliance concept provides endless replayability as well as increased excitement. In each game, the distribution of secret allies is totally different, which serves to create unique strategic situations. In order to win, you will have to employ the eternal principles of warfare, such as:

  • Using terrain to your advantage
  • Practicing flanking and enveloping maneuvers
  • Concentrating troops at the right place and time for maximum advantage
  • Cutting enemy supply routes
  • Performing screening maneuvers
  • Using guerrilla tactics and sabotage

Units include a variety of ground forces, ranging from reconnaissance to heavy mechs; air forces, including fighters and bombers; and naval forces, including carriers and battleships. When liberating new continents, you will learn to coordinate huge naval landing operations, involving carrier battle groups, naval bombardments and air power. These and other challenges await you in Massive Assault!

Massive Assault features include:

  • Original political system based on "Secret Allies" provides endless replayability
  • Smooth and Dynamic Gameplay
  • Full 3D Graphic Engine
  • Huge 3D Landscapes
  • 26 Detailed 3D Units
  • Realistic Lighting, Explosions and Effects
  • 3D Sound
  • 6 Different Worlds (planets)

Napoleon Bonaparte seems unstoppable. His military genius combined with the revolutionary fire of his troops has crushed every enemy that stood against him. He has already proved his ability against the Austrians in northern Italy, and now, as Emperor is ready to overthrow every European kingdom.
