Take Command in Napoleonic Europe’s Struggle for Power! Matrix Games and Western Civilization Software (www.west-civ.com) are pleased to announce that they will be bringing the Napoleonic-era strategy game Crown Of Glory to gamers around the world. Two hundred years after the start of the Napoleonic Wars, Crown Of Glory gives you a chance to change history as the ruler of a nation.

Choose your leader from eight major powers (France, Britain, Austria, Prussia, Russia, Turkey, Spain, and Sweden) and interact with over ninety computer-controlled minor nations.  Every effort has been made to bring you as thorough a simulation of the Napoleonic Era as is possible, from as early as 1799 to as late as 1820, from the dockyards of Lisbon to the frozen wastes of Holy Mother Russia.

David Heath, Director of Operations for Matrix Games stated, “Crown of Glory is truly a revolutionary game for the Napoleonic genre.  The designers and developers have left no stone unturned in realizing their vision of historically immersive and exciting gameplay.  Even if you’ve never looked at a Napoleonic game before, don’t miss this one!”

A turn-based structure allows you to play at your own pace, deciding on the military, diplomatic, economic and social paths of your nation, including treaties, trade routes and levying and supplying military units.  While your armies march across a worldwide map with monthly turns, battles will allow you to play at a smaller scale, where turns last twenty minutes and your units can be arranged into battlefield formations.  Battles can be auto-resolved or fought out on a detailed battlefield map.  Each unit has its purpose on the battlefield, with such diverse troops as Jagers, Cossacks, Janissaries and Horse Artillery all modeled for individual strength and morale ratings and each beautifully rendered and animated.

Eric Babe of Western Civilization Software said, “We’re excited to join the strong Matrix Games strategy and wargaming line-up.  We feel that the community and experience Matrix has built in this genre will help us to reach strategy gamers worldwide with our vision of what a great Napoleonic game should be.”

Historical leaders, special abilities, fleets, upgrades, reinforcements, colonialism, guard units and a variety of simulated events, from weather to time of day, give Crown Of Glory a unique style.  Combining Strategy and Tactics in one design, Crown Of Glory offers every gamer an opportunity to test his strength in an age of legends.

Command: Chains of War is Released!

Thursday, May 18, 2017

It’s 2018, the near future and the World is on the verge of a Third World War.

Tensions in the Korean peninsula region are erupting on a scale rarely seen before. Many countries have pursued particularly muscular policies in recent years, hardening a situation, ready to light the fuse at any moment.

China’s political elites are seeing the chance to fulfill their ambitions of a Chinese sphere of influence over the Pacific, and even if the United States are refocusing their military efforts in a revamped War on Terror, they haven’t left their interests in the region unprotected.

Now the question is not when, but who will be the first to strike.
