Intense close-quarters battle and some exploding panzers spearhead this squad of screenshots

Matrix Games and CSO SimTek (www.csosimtek.com) have released a pack of ten new screenshots for their highly anticipated tactical real time strategy game, Close Combat: Cross of Iron. Based on the Atomic Games award winning Close Combat series, Close Combat: Cross of Iron brings back the venerable Close Combat system in intense new epic battles of the Eastern Front of World War II. The latest batch of screenshots depicts a variety of tactical situations players will face in Cross of Iron: a fierce cross-river firefight, tank skirmishes on the outskirts of Berlin, and even close-quarters battle in the courtyards of the Kremlin!  

In Close Combat: Cross of Iron, you can take command of German or Soviet Battle Groups during WWII as you face the strength of the enemy war machine. The extensive and immersive Grand Campaign mode will give you both the original Close Combat and all new battles and operations that will test your tactical mettle. Start as a junior officer leading your men into battle in real time. As your knack for tactical brilliance and taste for glory grows stronger, earn promotions and get a larger number of forces at your disposal.

 

Close Combat: Cross of Iron still brings all of the classic aspects of the Close Combat system which made it the best real time tactical war game available, while still delivering fresh content and new gameplay dynamics. Features like unique artificial intelligence and game play elements that affects every individual soldier’s psyche provide tactical combat fanatics with unprecedented levels of realism in soldier and unit psychology and realism.

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!
