Type: Event

Game marks anniversary with free special event

Matrix Games and Playnet are marking the 6th anniversary of the award-winning MMOG, WWII Online: Battleground Europe (www.battleground-europe.com) with a special historically-based event.

PC gamers can create a free 7-day trial account, download the game and participate in a special historically-based event this weekend by visiting www.battleground-europe.com/bridges.

“Bridges too far and too many” is the title of the special event running all weekend on the game servers while the regular Axis vs Allied campaign takes a break.

 

“Towards the end of the war, as the Allied forces pushed their way into Germany, much effort and conflict went into the difficult task of crossing the rivers of the region and attacking an enemy determined to deny the use of those bridges to the advancing Allied forces.”

 

This special event is designed to simulate some of the aspects of this type of warfare experienced on both sides of the conflict at this closing stage of the war.

 

Battleground Europe features over 600 cities and 29,000 buildings.  The zoneless map covers 350,000 Km (Over 217,000 miles) of terrain and more than 4,000,000 trees.  Battles can rage for days and campaigns for weeks. The servers can support thousands of players online simultaneously.

 

Whether you want to be a British Sharpshooter, French tank commander or a German fighter-pilot, Battleground Europe has an assignment waiting for you.  Every soldier can make a visible contribution to the final shape of the battle for Western Europe!

Attention Wargamers! This post is for you!

Tuesday, August 30, 2016

This is a first (and experimental) post to see if we can spark some positive discussion about topics related to wargames and to help us better understand your views and opinions about stuff we care about. So here you go.

Most of the time, wargames depict conflicts with surgical precision and analytical rigor. Nevertheless, they tend to focus only on the military (or close related) aspects. That’s pretty self-evident, of course, as wargames are about war, after all. But we shall not forget the all conflicts are not a mere confrontation of brute force. Also, the more a conflict is controversial, the more it is difficult to show it exclusively from the military perspective.

Star Hammer: the Vanguard Prophecy is out on XBox One!

Friday, August 26, 2016

The game has had a tremendous amount of good press when it released on PC and iOS last year, but it took quite a while to upgrade the graphics and adapt the UI to the console systems. The whole concept of brining a deep PC strategy game is not easy to translate into practice. Ease-of-use and accessibility are key to the console players to enjoy games, but we made it!

It’s a game of 3D tactical space battles where players take part in the Second Contact War in a campaign with a branching story and over 60 missions. The game also allows to create own scenarios in skirmish mode battles. Orders are given during pause times of a perfectly balanced WEGO system, then players watch the results unfold in intriguing pausable real-time. There’s a pretty extensive arsenal of crew abilities and assault class ships, making the game extremely varied.
