Back to News Listing Battles in Italy v1.02 Update Released

Posted: Friday, July 15, 2005 by Matrix Support

Type: Update

New Update Includes Secure PBEM Fix

Matrix Games and Strategic Studies Group (SSG) (www.ssg.com.au) are pleased to announce that a new v1.02 update is available for the latest game in the Decisive Battles Series, Battles in Italy.  Battles in Italy brings the award-winning series to three pivotal battles:  Sicily (Operation Husky), Salerno (Operation Avalanche), and the unfortunate Operation Shingle, the invasion at Anzio.

The v1.02 update primarily fixes a problem with Secure PBEM play, which should allow PBEM tournament play to proceed with full confidence.

 

Battles in Italy is an operational wargame that takes you to three of the toughest fought battles in the Mediterranean -- the invasions of Sicily, Salerno, and Anzio.  You are given complete control of either the allies or the axis armies and must utilize strategy and tactics to overcome your opponent.  All three campaigns incorporate many new improvements and enhancements to the Decisive Battles series.  Some of these updates include rules for surrender, political units, cooperation between countries, and improved amphibious invasions!

 

The Decisive Battles of World War II Series has won a number of awards, including War Game of the Year from both Computer Gaming World and Gamespy, Editor's Choice from PC Gamer, and The Wargamer's Award for Excellence.  The series features an operational setting with an easy to use interface.  The game is approachable by beginners and masters with customizeable AI options to give any skill level a run for their money.  Battles in Italy comes with an extended tutorial to help new players get started.

Pandora: Eclipse of Nashira gets release date

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Since the release of Pandora: First Contact in late 2013, developers from Proxy Studios have been carefully collecting players’ feedback and thinking about the pros and cons that were highlighted by the community. At the core of this debate were requests about the diversity in this 4X sci-fi game, and the richness of the diplomatic relations between the factions. As a result the team has been working hard to make the game deeper and released several patches and a free expansion – Return of Messari – that went in this direction, and brought brand new content with a game changer that ensured fun and challenge for the late game.

“This war, like the next war, is a war to end war.” (David Lloyd George – UK Prime Minister)

One hundred years ago today, Russian and German forces were standing facing each other in East Prussia. This early confrontation on the Eastern Front – known as the Battle of Tannenberg - resulted in the almost complete destruction of the Russian Second Army and the suicide of their main commander, Samsonov. On the German side the battle made Paul von Hindenburg famous for the rest of the war, and proved that moving troops quickly by train could bring a decisive advantage. Technology was an asset that could make all the difference in the years to come…
