East Front WWII Strategy Game Nears Release

Matrix Games is pleased to release a new gameplay movie for the upcoming World War II strategy title from Koios Works (www.koiosworks.com), Panzer Command: Operation Winter Storm.  Koios Works is known for their work on the acclaimed Tin Soldiers series, which combined battles from ancient history with 3D strategy gaming.  Panzer Command: Operation Winter Storm will bring the same quality of gameplay the Tin Soldiers series was known for, this time on a tactical scale with a World War II setting.

Panzer Command: Operation Winter Storm is a 3D simultaneous turn based strategy game where you command either the Soviet or German forces during the desperate attempt to reach the encircled German 6th Army at Stalingrad.  Each side has detailed 3D units of all the historical vehicles and units, from tanks to riflemen.  Two campaigns (one German, one Soviet) tie the scenarios together, allowing core units to progress from battle to battle, gaining experience, medals and special abilities. Another great element is a point system which allows players to “purchase” additional units for each mission in the campaign as well as replace losses, forcing decisions on management of resources.

 

The new gameplay movie shows approximately a minute of movement and combat between German and Soviet armored forces near the village of Verkhne-Kumsky during December, 1942.

 

The design for Operation Winter Storm lets first time users sit down and start playing, while allowing hard-core gamers to enjoy the realism and historical accuracy.  All campaign battles can also be fought as individual scenarios.  The AI can control either side and a full Play-by-Email system allows for head to head play.  The unit and weapon data as well as the unit art is store in easily accessible formats to enable mod support and customized scenarios post-release.

 

Stay tuned to the main Matrix Games website at www.matrixgames.com for additional information on Panzer Command:  Operation Winter Storm and all of the upcoming Matrix products.

 

Panzer Command: Operation Winter Storm is expected to release in June, 2006.

To End All Wars and Commander: The Great War 50% Discounted!

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

The 1918 Kaiserschlacht (or Spring Offensive) was the last attempt by the German High Command to make a breakthrough in the Western Front.

On the 21st  of March 1918, a series of attacks along the front line held by the British Fifth and Third Army began. Strengthened by divisions coming from the Eastern Front and with an extended use of troops trained in infiltration and assault tactics (Stormtroopers), the Germans were able to achieve the largest territory advance of the war.

However, this all-out offensive didn’t gain a decisive victory. The Germans lost irreplaceable veteran troops and the conquest of the new territories resulted in hard to defend positions with a supply line that was stretched too far.
