Back to News Listing Matrix Games Releases New Flashpoint Germany Update!

Posted: Thursday, February 22, 2007 by Matrix Support

Type: Update

The Cold War heats up in a flash as this update arrives on the scene

Matrix Games and Simulations Canada are happy to announce that a new update is available for their turn-based modern warfare title, Flashpoint Germany. The new update fixes an issue with the scenario editor and tweaks in-game messages to be a little slicker. Most notably, however, is the improved application of unit SOP Doctrine that gives unit behaviour (especially for recon units) a more natural result now.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said, “As always, we’re delighted to bring gamers another update for one of our fantastic products. The latest update for Flashpoint Germany is another testament to Matrix Games’ commitment to continually improving and upgrading our products long after they’ve been released.”

 

Robert Crandall, lead developer of Flashpoint Germany, added, “Through our continual development of Flashpoint Germany even after the game’s initial release, we’ve taken an already fun and addicting wargame and made it even better. All Flashpoint Germany fans looking for yet another improvement to the game’s gameplay and interface should definitely download this patch.”

 

Flashpoint Germany brings players back to the height of the Cold War, as it was frequently on the brink of exploding into a red hot full blown conflict. As the title implies, Flashpoint Germany lets players fight the full scale war that never was as massive armies of incredible power face off across the West German border. Players will fight the Soviet menace or Western capitalist dogs, with companies and platoons which maneuver on realistic maps of the Germany countryside in 2 Tutorials and 17 Scenarios. In the spirit of revisionist history, Flashpoint Germany also lets players build their own scenarios which can be played against the AI opponent or against another player via TCP/IP or PBEM.

“The fruits of victory are tumbling into our mouths too quickly” – Japanese Emperor Hirohito, 1942

6 months after Pearl Harbour, the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere has reached its peak of expansion. Australia and New Zealand are under direct threat, weakening more and more the American ability to intervene in the Pacific.

Only decisive actions to take the initiative could allow the Allies to re-establish a naval and air superiority over the Imperial Army.

And that tiny island named Guadalcanal seems like the best place to start...

Victory and Glory Card System!

Tuesday, February 02, 2016

To win a war, armies might be not enough. You need political skills as well, allowing you to change the balance of power in your favour, forge new alliances and isolate the enemy.

The endless conflict  between Napoleon and the several Coalitions formed against him was fought following exactly this simple rule. Great Britain didn’t have a ground army able to counter alone the capacity of the Revolutionary France and was forced to convince and support potential allies on the Continent.

On the other hand, Napoleon took many risks to manage fighting on multiple fronts at once, stretching his resources and wasting time and materials.
