Back to News Listing Sign of for the Pike and Shot Beta!

Posted: Wednesday, July 23, 2014 by Bart Schouten

Type: News

It was at our annual Home of Wargamers event earlier this year that we surprised press and public alike with the announcement of Pike and Shot, a brand new game developed by  Byzantine Games and The Lordz Games Studio, set during the 30th Years War. With the game releasing later this year, the time has come to invite all those who are willing and able, to sign up for the beta test of this unique strategy game! By signing up for the beta, you will have a chance to experience the game before release and to help us eradicate those pesky bugs and balancing issues. 

In the age of Pike and Shot, mighty struggles erupted across Europe for causes religious, political or dynastic. The Thirty Years War raged across Germany and beyond, leaving devastation in its wake, but saw the rise of great commanders such as Count Tilly, Wallenstein and King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden, and rapid developments in battlefield tactics.  Musketeers “gave fire” in a duel to the death, pikeman held stolidly against enemy assaults, and cavalry charged to glory or defeat. You can take command in the greatest historical battles of the war, fight stand-alone “what-if” scenarios, or design your own scenarios using the easy to use editor.

Zeus, father of the Olympians, made night from mid-day, hiding the light of the shining Sun, and sore fear came upon men.” (Archilochus)

The world of Pandora, mankind’s new hope, was already a dangerous place for the human colonists.

As the sun grows dark, a new enemy species reaches the surface of this hostile world, rising up from the depths of Pandora and a new human faction joins the competition for the planet’s dominance.

Battle Academy 2 Out now!

Thursday, September 11, 2014

The enemy is at the gate. It is a question of life and death.” (Andrei Zhdanov – Soviet Politician)

June 22, 1941 – German troops cross the border in Soviet-occupied Poland and break instantly the Non-Aggression pact between Germany and the USSR. This brutal and massive operation opened a huge new front in Europe. While the initial advance was fast and surprising enough to make the Germans reach the gates of Moscow, the invaders quickly had to deal with a valiant resistance from the Red Army and endure the tough weather and terrain conditions. Soon the Eastern Front became the ruthless and the bloodiest front of the whole war…
