August 13, 2014 - One hundred years ago today Austro-Hungarian forces cross the River Drina and start their invasion of Serbia. General Oskar Potiorek, Commander of the Austrian forces in the Balkans expected a quick and easy victory, but unexpected resistance from Serbia led to the Battle of Cer that resulted into a serious defeat for the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

Field Marshal Putnik, the battle hardened leader of Serbian forces, launched a counter-attack on August 15th giving the Austro-Hungarian’s a bloody nose. Although both sides sustained heavy casualties, the Austro-Hungarian army, surprised by the tenacious resistance fell back in panic and disarray. General Potiorek was humiliated but it was only the first major encounter on this front and lots of famous battles followed.

However Europe was not the only battlefield and at the same moment in Africa, the Entente was seizing the capital of Togoland from the German Empire. The war was spreading like wildfire!

In To End All Wars, the latest wargame designed by Ageod, you will be able to refight the Great War and to manage the destiny of your alliance across the world. Trenches, aerial warfare, new technologies, and an original diplomatic system have been implemented to model the conflict with a high level of realism.

To End All Wars will be available on August the 26th. The countdown has begun…

Aggressors Testers Diary - Modding

Friday, June 15, 2018

As a young player I was always browsing game files trying to find a way to change them. It was partially curiosity and partially a wish to modify the rules to my own liking, because no matter how great a game is, there is always something you want to tweak or adjust.

The option of modding was part of the game design from the very beginning as I wanted to give the players the opportunity to create the Aggressors realm with me in an easy and user-friendly way. Over time, the idea was brought even further – I decided to create a framework for strategy games of different worlds and historical eras.

Tigers on the Hunt second DLC announced! Welcome to Normandy!

Monday, June 11, 2018

June, 1944. Europe has been under the Nazi heel for 4 long years. Even if the Eastern Front is crumbling and the Red Army counterattacks are in full swing, the German Armed Forces are still a formidable opponent and are making very costly every inch of ground conquered.

Only a breach into the Festung Europa and the creation of a second front could ensure the beginning of the end of the Third Reich.
