New Patch for Free Wargaming Classic

Matrix Games is pleased to announce the availability of a new patch for Steel Panthers:  World at War.  Version 8.40 brings about 14 minor bug fixes and can be applied on top of v8.30 installations.  This update works for both the freely downloadable full Steel Panthers: World at War as well as the General’s Edition collection of Mega-Campaigns.

The 8.40 patch makes a wide variety of improvements, mostly focused on the “long” World War 2 scenario.  Additionally several adjustments were devised to improve the game, including reinforcement allocations, troop morale values when a leader is absent, and reduced visibility in sandstorms.  The Steel Panthers World at War v8.40 update is available from the Matrix Games website at www.matrixgames.com.

 

Steel Panthers: World at War is a free, downloadable Windows-compatible wargaming classic from the Matrix Games team, available from a variety of major game download sites.

 

Steel Panthers:  World at War is a tactical wargame that puts you in command of the Allied or Axis powers in a number of scenarios during World War 2.  Steel Panthers: World At War was recognized as the Charles S. Roberts Best 20th Century Wargame (2000) and has delighted war game fans since its initial release.  Based on the Hall of Fame Steel Panthers series of old, Steel Panthers: World at War is updated and overhauled with better graphics, more detailed orders of battle and improved combat and command modeling.  More importantly, it is fully Windows compatible, allowing the latest computers to experience this wargaming classic. 

 

Steel Panthers:  World at War General’s Edition includes the complete free Steel Panthers: World at War and also includes all 4 massive historical Mega-Campaigns. With an original branching campaign engine and meticulous attention to detail, the Mega-Campaigns set a new standard in tactical campaign play.  Each Mega-Campaign allows you to follow in the footsteps of a historical leader and the four together cover the Pacific, North Africa, France and the Eastern Front.  The General’s Edition is available for purchase from the Matrix Games online store.

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.

Command LIVE: You Brexit, You Fix it!

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?
