New Class Brings New Dangers in combat!

Matrix Games and Playnet (www.playnet.com) are pleased to announce that the first person shooter and massive multiplayer game Battleground Europe (www.battleground-europe.com) has brought a new class into the virtual battlefield; the Sniper.  This new addition comes hot on the heels of the game’s availability in North America from the Matrix Games store.

The sniper unit is armed with a historically accurate scope that modifies the standard issue rifle.  These elite troopers are fast, stealthy, and dangerously accurate.  No commander is safe from the crosshairs of a skilled sniper.  Due to their limited ammunition, the sniper unit will always be on the move to strike and return to base for re-supply.

 

The full release in North America provides the latest version and goodies that were included in the European release last month.  Enjoy a huge variety of extras, such as a 150-page game manual in electronic form, a combat equipment guide, wallpapers, game music, comics and more! Included is a key for 30 days of FREE play- a $19.99 value!

 

The Battleground Europe world features over 600 cities and 29,000 buildings.  The zoneless map covers 350,000 Km (Over 217,000 miles) of terrain with a whopping 4,000,000 trees.  Battles can rage for days and the servers can support thousands of players online simultaneously.

 

Whether you want to be a British Sharpshooter or a German fighter-pilot, Battleground Europe has an assignment waiting for you.  Every soldier can make a visible contribution to the final shape of the battle for Europe!

 

Battleground Europe is available via the Matrix Games Online Store digital download and game on demand. Pricing is US $19.99 for the immediately available download version and US $29.99 for the boxed version.

Aggressors Testers Diary - Modding

Friday, June 15, 2018

As a young player I was always browsing game files trying to find a way to change them. It was partially curiosity and partially a wish to modify the rules to my own liking, because no matter how great a game is, there is always something you want to tweak or adjust.

The option of modding was part of the game design from the very beginning as I wanted to give the players the opportunity to create the Aggressors realm with me in an easy and user-friendly way. Over time, the idea was brought even further – I decided to create a framework for strategy games of different worlds and historical eras.

Tigers on the Hunt second DLC announced! Welcome to Normandy!

Monday, June 11, 2018

June, 1944. Europe has been under the Nazi heel for 4 long years. Even if the Eastern Front is crumbling and the Red Army counterattacks are in full swing, the German Armed Forces are still a formidable opponent and are making very costly every inch of ground conquered.

Only a breach into the Festung Europa and the creation of a second front could ensure the beginning of the end of the Third Reich.
