Panther Games continues its award winning Airborne Assault series with Conquest of the AegeanBefore Hitler attacked Russia, he unleashed the bestiary of his German blitzkrieg on Allied forces in the Aegean peninsula. Swift moving panzer formations, efficiently ruthless motorized infantry, elite paratroops and mountain troops, airpower and more - the might of the German military at its peak. His army swept over the Hellenic world toward Athens, the ancient seat of civilization.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations for Matrix Games, said, “The release of Conquest of the Aegean really raises the realism bar for operational wargaming.  In addition to being a great game, the approach it takes to historical accuracy in both research and results is second to none.”

 

The Airborne Assault series has revolutionized wargaming with a continuous-time-game-engine that brings military strategy to life in a deeply realistic yet supremely playable game environment.  Highway to the Reich, the previous game in the series, earned an 89% rating from PC Gamer, 8.1/10 from GameSpot and 4/5 from GameSpy for its realistic and elegant gameplay.

 

Dave O’Connor of Panther Games said, “We’re very excited about the release of Conquest of the Aegean and the improvements we’ve built into the engine since Highway to the Reich.  We believe the Matrix Games Community will love the results
