Type: Press Release

 

In a year of great announcements, Matrix Games adds another deal to its already astonishing set for 2013. This time it’s wargames specialist Fury Software, developer of Strategic Command to join the biggest community of strategy gamers in the world.

“We keep pushing boundaries”. Said JD McNeil, Chairman of Slitherine. “After announcing major deals with Ageod, Buzz Aldrin and Games Workshop, this is yet another great testament to our continued drive to give our community the most complete offering of strategy and wargames. This is a special one though. There is nothing thing like seeing a developer such as Fury Software join our list of partners, because it’s evidence of the incredible amount of goodwill and brand equity we have developed over the last three years”.
 

Signing with Fury Software starts a collaboration which will lead to the release of Strategic Command 3 in the Matrix Games and Slitherine stores in 2014.
 

“The Strategic Command brand is healthy as it could possibly be”, said Huber Cater, Managing Director of Fury Software. “When we started it 15 years ago, we had hopes to create something that would stand test of time. After so many years we are glad we can bring the franchise to the next level, with this exciting new partnership”.

The Strategic Command brand gained its fame thanks to a flexible game engine, its multiple scenarios and campaigns (adding also those created by the modders community), and key features like diplomatic repercussions of events, research and technology, convoy systems and more.

Star Hammer: the Vanguard Prophecy is out on XBox One!

Friday, August 26, 2016

The game has had a tremendous amount of good press when it released on PC and iOS last year, but it took quite a while to upgrade the graphics and adapt the UI to the console systems. The whole concept of brining a deep PC strategy game is not easy to translate into practice. Ease-of-use and accessibility are key to the console players to enjoy games, but we made it!

It’s a game of 3D tactical space battles where players take part in the Second Contact War in a campaign with a branching story and over 60 missions. The game also allows to create own scenarios in skirmish mode battles. Orders are given during pause times of a perfectly balanced WEGO system, then players watch the results unfold in intriguing pausable real-time. There’s a pretty extensive arsenal of crew abilities and assault class ships, making the game extremely varied.

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!
