David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said, “Gates of Troy is truly an awesome strategy gaming experience.  Building a civilization, training an army and then getting to enjoy it march across the battlefield in 1:1 ratio is truly satisfying.”

Gates of Troy is now available for online purchase and the DVD boxed version will be available in two weeks.  In Gates of Troy you will lead your nation to victory in the ancient world’s greatest battles.  Capture romance and adventure as you work your way to the far off shores of Troy.  Control a vast empire and fight epic sized battles on 3D battlefields.  With 6 new campaigns and 19 new heroes to come to your aid it will take all the planning in the world to build your cities and conquer your enemies.  Greece is in your hands in Gates of Troy!

Gates of Troy retails for $19.99 from the Matrix Games Online Store for the downloadable version.  The DVD box version will be $29.99 plus shipping, again, available in two weeks.   The game is fully backwards compatible with the previous game Spartan and supports the previous Spartan campaigns and scenarios but does not require Spartan to run.

Iain McNeil at Slitherine Strategies said, “We are happy that Slitherine and Matrix Games could come together on this project to help release Gates of Troy to the US market.  We anticipate great success in this and future endeavors.”

Strategic Command Beta AAR: First Moves

Thursday, July 28, 2016

Welcome to the first Beta-AAR of Strategic Command WWII: War in Europe.  This is a mini AAR, and as such, the AAR will only cover the inital shots in Gleiwitz Poland in September of 1939, to the fall of France in mid 1940.   Since the game is still in Beta, there might be some changes of the material covered between now and the final release, but the game already feels complete and the development team assures me that they don’t expect much to change other than minor items to ensure any final polish and balance to the main campaign.

Players familiar with the Strategic Command series will immediately notice the much bigger map. In the north, the passage around Norway to Archangelsk is ready for sub warfare, and in the south, a large part of Africa has been modeled as well.

Tuesday, July 26, 2016

Is there anything that seems more crucial in recent European history than the possibility of Great Britain leaving the European Union?

Probably not, because it’s really too early to say what the likely outcomes are for the near future. Nevertheless, many military observers seem pretty much convinced that this event could make NATO, the main western collective defensive system, weaker and less effective: What if other countries decide to follow the British example and like in a domino effect, the internal cohesion and cooperation of the European nations is diminished as a consequence?

We are really proud of this first episode and of the project as a whole. Developers WarfareSim and Bart Gauvin, an experienced designer from the community, have worked hard to bring this project to life and this is only the start. It’s the first time a detailed simulation takes on real life events to create such detailed fictional, but true-to-life scenarios.
