Matrix Games and Hussar Games (www.huszargames.hu) are proud to announce that they have completed and released a new update for For Liberty!

Matrix Games and Hussar Games are both committed to providing players with the best possible gaming experience through updates and improvements."

 

For Liberty! is a turn based strategy game covering the American Revolutionary War from 1775 - 1783 and the Hungarian Rakoczi Independence War - the eastern theater of the War of Spanish Succession from 1703 to 1711. Giving the player unprecedented options of command and control, players are able to take part in as much or as little of the fighting as they desire. A large variety of units can be ordered to attack, recon, retreat, train, rest, pillage, siege enemy forts, fortify important locations, and more.

 

Furthermore, players are also charged with logistical concerns like paying and supplying their troops and maintaining morale. Political decisions and foreign aid are simulated by an influence system that players can use to change the strategic situation. Ultimately, For Liberty! provides a great mix between realism, historical accuracy, and playability.  This combination gives wargamers and history buffs just the right amount of everything necessary to make For Liberty! a great gaming experience.

 

This update is comprehensive and will bring the game up to version 1.80.

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.
