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.

Armored Brigade - The Art of Making Maps

Monday, February 12, 2018

Hello, my name is Dmitriy Maksimov and I am creating maps and an interface for the game Armored Brigade.
For the past 10 years I have professionally practiced graphic design, illustrations and visualizations in quite a variety of ways, but mostly in the digital sphere. 
The task for drawing maps seemed to me extremely interesting and curious, because it affects a huge layer of information design, which is very important and interesting in a wargame.
 
The genre of strategy has always been a complex genre, but the wargames, I think, bring this genre to the highest level of uniqueness and exactingness.
