Back to News Listing New Battlefront Screenshots

Posted: Monday, February 26, 2007 by Matrix Support

Type: ScreenShots

A dozen digital goodies are battle-ready and reporting for duty!

Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com) and Strategic Studies Group (www.ssg.com.au) are excited to release a pack of a dozen images for their new World War II strategy game, Battlefront. In this new screenshot pack, players will find six screenshots detailing the in-depth scenario editor which has been designed from the ground up to give players maximum flexibility in their ability to design custom scenarios. The other half of the images illustrates the various immersive operational, strategic, and statistical features of the game which make Battlefront as exhaustive as it is addicting.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said, “These screenshots offer just a small sample of the enormous gameplay features that come with Battlefront. It’s no surprise with a company like Strategy Studies Group behind a title of this scope and approach that Battlefront has been met with acclaim by grognards and strategy fans alike. These screenshots are just another good example among many as to why Battlefront is in the forefront of the World War II strategy genre.”

 

Battlefront is a new World War II battalion-level combat game based on the design philosophy of the popular Decisive Battles of World War II series. In Battlefront, gamers will have the opportunity to wage historic operations like Saipan, Market Garden, Novorossisk, and Gazala the way they see fit. Players will have realistic control over their soldiers, with a tactical scale just large enough to make a telling difference in the strategic picture.

 

Some features of Battlefront include:

  • Advanced strategic AI enables a more flexible response to fast changing battlefields
  • Steamlined user interface simplifies unit information
  • Command and control system that rewards correct employment of military assets
  • Close combat routines have special attack modes such as Banzai, Surprise, and Infiltration
  • Indirect Fire from artillery and air assets can directly attack enemy units
  • Direct fire from AFVs can attack enemy units at range
  • Counter-battery fire can eliminate enemy artillery
  • Eliminated units can be rebuilt as cadres and returned to battle
  • Sighting, command, supply and danger zone rules encourage sensible use of artillery
  • Complete Unit, Map and AI editor allows users to create scenarios from scratch

Pandora: Eclipse of Nashira gets release date

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Since the release of Pandora: First Contact in late 2013, developers from Proxy Studios have been carefully collecting players’ feedback and thinking about the pros and cons that were highlighted by the community. At the core of this debate were requests about the diversity in this 4X sci-fi game, and the richness of the diplomatic relations between the factions. As a result the team has been working hard to make the game deeper and released several patches and a free expansion – Return of Messari – that went in this direction, and brought brand new content with a game changer that ensured fun and challenge for the late game.

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

“This war, like the next war, is a war to end war.” (David Lloyd George – UK Prime Minister)

One hundred years ago today, Russian and German forces were standing facing each other in East Prussia. This early confrontation on the Eastern Front – known as the Battle of Tannenberg - resulted in the almost complete destruction of the Russian Second Army and the suicide of their main commander, Samsonov. On the German side the battle made Paul von Hindenburg famous for the rest of the war, and proved that moving troops quickly by train could bring a decisive advantage. Technology was an asset that could make all the difference in the years to come…
