Major Update for new 3D Tactical WWII Game

Matrix Games and Koios Works (www.koiosworks.com) are pleased to announce the release of the first update for Panzer Command: Operation Winter Storm.  This first update adds major new gameplay features and also resolves several minor issues.

New features include more detailed infantry casualty and suppression modeling as well as new icons to indicate these changes.  Commanders now also have a Defend -> Hold Fire sub order with three options allowing the commander to choose when his units engage targets.  A handy LOS tool has also been added to the order menu showing why your LOS is blocked when its rubberband turns translucent.

 

In addition, new Scenario Editing Tools created by John Sestan have been included to make modifying or creating your own scenario easier than ever.  The v1.12 update also includes two new bonus scenarios, “Welcome to Kotelnikovo” and “Hell’s Gate”.

 

Changes include improvements to Area HE fire and HE fire against infantry in buildings, as well as a number of minor fixes and data corrections.  All told the change list includes 19 bug fixes and 11 new features.  We recommend that all owners of Panzer Command update to v1.12 for the best possible game experience.

 

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 the historical vehicles and squads, from Panzer IIIs and T-34s to PanzerGrenadiers, Artillery and Air Strikes.  Two full campaigns (one German, one Soviet) tie the scenarios together, allowing core units to progress from battle to battle, gaining experience, medals and special abilities. A point system allows players to “purchase” additional units for each mission in the campaign as well as replace losses, forcing decisions on management of resources.

 

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 and two separate skirmish scenarios are included for maximum replayability.  The AI can control either side in each battle and a full Play-by-Email system allows for head to head play. 

 

Panzer Command: Operation Winter Storm is also the first 3D tactical WWII game where the unit and weapon data as well as the unit art is stored in easily accessible formats to enable mod support and customized scenarios and campaigns post-release.

Tigers on the Hunt first DLC announced! Welcome to Kursk!

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

On July 1943, the German war machine had the chance to deal a mortal blow to the Red Army. After the defeat at Stalingrad, it was necessary to regain the initiative and secure the Eastern front. For this purpose, the German High Command massed a huge quantity of Panthers and Tigers tanks in proximity of the Kursk salient, hoping to destroy the bulk of the Russian forces in this area.

But the Soviets, knowing in advance the Hitler’s plan, created over 190 miles of depth defense to stop the Panzerwaffe and they moved their armored forces in reserve for the counter-attack.

The largest tank battle of the entire Second World War was about to commence…
