Back to News Listing Matrix Releases an Update for SSG’s Battlefront

Posted: Tuesday, May 1, 2007 by Matrix Support

Type: Update

A new update for this WWII strategy bombshell is loaded, prepped, and ready for launch

Matrix Games and Strategic Studies Group (www.ssg.com.au) are proud to announce the release of another update for the addicting battalion level turn-based strategy title, Battlefront. This latest update brings two improvements to the PBEM system to assure that the World War II-style player vs. player action runs in tip top shape. Please note that this update is incremental and will not work without the previous version update (1.01) installed.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said of the new update, “Both Matrix Games and SSG pride themselves on attention to detail and a commitment to excellence. We hope gamers who are already fans of Battlefront will enjoy this new update and benefit from its improvements.”

 

Battlefront is a 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.

To End All Wars and Commander: The Great War 50% Discounted!

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

The 1918 Kaiserschlacht (or Spring Offensive) was the last attempt by the German High Command to make a breakthrough in the Western Front.

On the 21st  of March 1918, a series of attacks along the front line held by the British Fifth and Third Army began. Strengthened by divisions coming from the Eastern Front and with an extended use of troops trained in infiltration and assault tactics (Stormtroopers), the Germans were able to achieve the largest territory advance of the war.

However, this all-out offensive didn’t gain a decisive victory. The Germans lost irreplaceable veteran troops and the conquest of the new territories resulted in hard to defend positions with a supply line that was stretched too far.
