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.

    Tigers on the Hunt first DLC announced! Welcome to Kursk!

    Tuesday, January 10, 2017

    On July 1943, the German war machine had the chance to deal a mortal blow to the Red Army. After the defeat at Stalingrad, it was necessary to regain the initiative and secure the Eastern front. For this purpose, the German High Command massed a huge quantity of Panthers and Tigers tanks in proximity of the Kursk salient, hoping to destroy the bulk of the Russian forces in this area.

    But the Soviets, knowing in advance the Hitler’s plan, created over 190 miles of depth defense to stop the Panzerwaffe and they moved their armored forces in reserve for the counter-attack.

    The largest tank battle of the entire Second World War was about to commence…
