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.

Pike & Shot is now available!

Thursday, October 16, 2014

"Not only strike while the iron is hot, but make it hot by striking.” (Oliver Cromwell – English military and political leader)

In the age of Pike and Shot, mighty struggles erupted across Europe for religious, political or dynastic causes. The greatest powers of that period were regularly involved in conflicts and struggles to increase their dominance over the continent. Some countries have also to deal with inner tensions and are torn apart between factions. War is in the air. But war has changed. Due to the development of new technologies, traditional medieval tactics have been substituted with a totally different approach to effectively utilise the new formations and weapons.
