Back to News Listing Origins : June 24-27, 2004

Posted: Thursday, June 24, 2004 by Matrix Support

Type: Review

Well we are back from Origins 2004 and we had a great time. The show was a major success and we got to finally meet so many of you and just chat. Sales for our newest games War in the Pacific, Starshatter and Steel Panthers World At War General Edition were fast and furious. Visit Origins website.

We also tried something new this year and set up a webcam at the show. We did it more for a gag but over 1,000 of you were online looking to see what was going on, and even maxed out the webcam system. Hopefully next time it will be just as successful! I just want to take a moment to thank Keith Brors from 2by3 Games, Dave O'Connor and Paul Scobell from Panther Games, Rowan and Joyce Keating from Strategic Studies Group and Russ Pearlman from Koios Works for taking their time and attending the show with us. I also like to thank Julie Kershenbaum from Armchair General and Winnie Wong from Alienware for sponsoring Matrix Games during its 2004 World Tour. Last but not least the Matrix team itself. Thank you one and all for making this a great show.

    Wednesday, March 22, 2017

    Since we released Strategic Command in November last year, our next goal was to keep improving the game, making it better and better.

    The first official update – the Garand Update – brought a huge amount of fixes and improvements but, even if important, the update didn’t include a very anticipated feature, Multiplayer.

    Today, your patience has been rewarded, as the PBEM system has been integrated into Strategic Command and it is finally available!

    It is a groundbreaking and innovative wargame, bringing counter-insurgency to your screen!

    To End All Wars and Commander: The Great War 50% Discounted!

    Tuesday, March 21, 2017

    The 1918 Kaiserschlacht (or Spring Offensive) was the last attempt by the German High Command to make a breakthrough in the Western Front.

    On the 21st  of March 1918, a series of attacks along the front line held by the British Fifth and Third Army began. Strengthened by divisions coming from the Eastern Front and with an extended use of troops trained in infiltration and assault tactics (Stormtroopers), the Germans were able to achieve the largest territory advance of the war.

    However, this all-out offensive didn’t gain a decisive victory. The Germans lost irreplaceable veteran troops and the conquest of the new territories resulted in hard to defend positions with a supply line that was stretched too far.
