David Heath, CEO of Matrix Games said, "This is a really great game that stands head to head with many of today's classic strategy games.  The detail in the design will really give fellow gamers a good feel for commanding a campaign in the 18th century."


Bulcsu Varhegyi of Hussar Games said, "We are very proud of this release and with Matrix Games support we feel twe have provided excellent service to our fans and really improved the gameplay we received from our fans."


Each campaign has a unique soundtrack, accurate map covering over 3,000 hexes each, and accurate units for each side and time period.  There are 8 total campaigns, 4 for each theatre of revolution.  At the strategic level manage resources such as recruits, horses, muskets, cannons, money, and supply.  Use influence to affect political decisions.  Command four hundred historic leaders and give strategic orders to troops such as siege, defend, attack, retreat, and rest.


In the tactical level, fight battles on randomly generated maps, giving a new tactical situation each time you play.  Command 16 different large size 3D unit types from 5 countries, each with authentic uniforms.  Units may adopt several stances in combat, including line, column, and skirmish.


In For Liberty! there are many realism factors that bring out the best of revolutionary combat.  Morale plays a major role in combat, and no soldier will fight to the last man.  Break the opposition's morale and drive them from the field of combat.  Also there are plenty of random events, such as pirates, betrayal, epidemics, fires, and much more.  To top it all off, a full campaign editor will be included along with a special bonus USA scenario.

 

  • Campaign editor - create your own fictional or historical campaign
  • New bonus American campaign.
  • Improved fatigue system in tactical battles.
  • AI enhancements on both the strategic and tactical levels
  • and much more.

Strategic Command Blog Post n1! New Features and Game's Scope

Thursday, June 23, 2016

Strategic Command WWII: War in Europe is the ground-breaking next step in the highly acclaimed Strategic Command series of turn based strategy games.

A Return to Hexes

Our aim with the Strategic Command series is to make attractive, playable and historical games. Our aim for this release is to make a game that will provide one of the best strategic level re-creations of 20th century warfare, while also being a whole lot of fun to play.

The first and possibly biggest decision for us was to return the series to using hexes rather than tiles. There are pros and cons to both, but it was clear that the majority of those who expressed a preference preferred hexes, and we didn't disagree. So hexes are back!

Accessible and Entertaining Historical Games

The concept behind our games is that they should be easy and fun to play, while also being fully immersed in their historical setting.

So combat is quick to carry out, simply click on your units to move/attack. German units can be near Warsaw in no time at all!
