Back to News Listing New Demo for Panzer Command: Operation Winter Storm Released!

Posted: Thursday, November 16, 2006 by Matrix Support

Type: Demo

Full v1.13 Demo with Tutorial Now Available

Matrix Games and Koios Works (www.koiosworks.com) are pleased to release the first full demo for their World War II 3D Tactical game, Panzer Command: Operation Winter Storm, which has just arrived in retail stores this week.

Based on the latest v1.13 release of Panzer Command: Operation Winter Storm, the demo includes a tutorial scenario and a 22 page tutorial guide to introduce players to the Panzer Command system.  In addition, a fully playable version of the first scenario in the German campaign is included.  This is the first full-featured commercial demo for Panzer Command: Operation Winter Storm, which has just been released, look for it at your local retail store!

 

Why should you try the demo?  Here’s why:  Panzer Command: Operation Winter Storm earned a 85% review from Armchair General Magazine (www.armchairgeneral.com), who called it “A very nice introduction to World War II tactical WEGO systems” and said “No effort was spared in accuracy”.  The Wargamer (www.wargamer.com) said “There is enough balance in the game to appeal to hard-core wargamers as well as casual gamers looking for fast and fun gameplay”.  Game Apex Recommended Panzer Command and commented, “Panzer Command is a simple game to play, but a challenging game to win… historically accurate, and a challenge for even experienced gamers.”

 

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 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.

 

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 open formats to enable mod support and customized scenarios and campaigns post-release.

 

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.
