Back to News Listing Wars of Succession is OUT

I have resolved never to start an unjust war, but never to end a legitimate one except by defeating my enemies. - Charles XII of Sweden

It is the year 1700 but this new century is not bringing peace to Europe. Two great wars are erupting almost simultaneously, covering the Old World with fire, smoke and steel.
 
Over Western and southwest Europe, the War of Spanish Succession sees the French - Spanish Bourbons monarchs against the Grand Alliance built by Austrian Habsburgs, Britain and the United Provinces. The stakes are high, as every power involved is willing to conquer a share of the "Empire where the Sun never sets".
 

In Eastern and Northeastern Europe, Sweden and Russia (and its allies) have started a bloody confrontation for dominance in the North. The consequences of a struggle between Czar Peter I and King Charles XII of Sweden are unpredictable. The Great Northern War is about to commence.
 
Wars of Succession, the new turn-based grand strategy game developed by Ageod and published by Matrix Games aims to recreate these crucial wars with incredible accuracy. With a detailed selection of each historical unit involved in the conflict, you'll have the chance to command over 200 different types of troops from Grenadiers and Musketeers to Winged Hussars and Cossacks, as well as a dozen types of different warships.
 
You will coordinate the movements of several armies across all major European countries, take care of supplies, fatigue and seek the most favourable conditions to engage in combat, hold sieges or retreat to recover.
 
Grab the game now!
 

 

As always, we're going to have a release stream where we show you all there is to know on the game, in case you missed our previous previews (which can be found HERE and HERE).

However, today we have a little surprise for those who often follow our Twitch Streams: you'll be able to buy a copy of the game with your Sliths (if you have enough, that is)!

There will only be 5 copies available on sale, so be sure to be there when we'll start selling them! We'll be waiting for you on our Twitch Channel, 11 AM EST / 4 PM GMT / 5 PM CET!

Armored Brigade Dev Diary #1 - Artificial Intelligence

Monday, July 16, 2018

The Armored Brigade artificial intelligence (AI) is fully dynamic, which means that it can handle any scenario within the game parameters, without a need for any scripting from the scenario designer. This approach has been the basic foundation of the game. I've always found the procedurally generated game content fascinating, and that can be seen in the design philosophy of Armored Brigade.

In Armored Brigade, there's an undefined number of maps, units, environmental conditions, and so on. The system must build a readable representation, process the input and then produce output that creates a credible impression of intelligence that behaves in a realistic, unpredictable and challenging manner. That's quite a challenge indeed. A "chess AI", where you have a finite number of possible states, is out of the question.

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Orks units preview

Tuesday, July 10, 2018

Heavily-muscled, aggressive, eight-foot-tall fungal thugs with a love of warfare, the Orks were a spacefaring peril long before the human Imperium entered the galactic scene. Spread evenly across the galaxy, for the most part they are an irritant to any other inhabitants, like lazy, belligerent neighbours. But occasionally, as a swarm of locusts, the scattered tribes and clans form into a Waaagh! – something between a crusade and a riot – and devastate entire sectors until they run out of things to fight and fall instead into internecine warfare.
