Type: Update

A brand new 1.02 update on your desk and awaiting approval, Herr General

Matrix Games and VR Designs (www.advancedtactics.org) are pleased to announce that a new update for their popular World War II turn-based strategy game, Advanced Tactics: World War II, is now available. This latest 1.02 official update brings over 20 fixes, balance tweaks, and improvements to the table. Specifically, many minor bugs were fixed, the Europe at War scenario has been updated, unit costs were tweaked a bit, and the balance of units like scouts, flak, level bombers, heavy tanks, and more has been improved.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said, “Advanced Tactics has been enormously well received by gamers and critics alike and this update is yet another step in the right direction for VR Designs.  Advanced Tactics has so much solid gameplay and replayability that we expect it to stay on your hard drive for ages and never get old.  You can count on Matrix Games and VR Designs to continue to improve and support this wonderful game.”


Victor Reijkersz of VR Designs added “Thanks so much for the overwhelming community support I’ve received from fans. Your feedback has added tremendously to the continuing success of Advanced Tactics and we plan on continuing to improve this great gaming system as time goes on.  The next update is already in the works!”


Advanced Tactics is a versatile turn-based strategy system that gives gamers the chance to wage almost any battle in any time period. The first module in this series is Advanced Tactics: World War II, which allows gamers to command a mighty army and storm across Europe. Complete with a streamlined interface and an addicting style of gameplay, Advanced Tactics offers a unique and infinitely replayable experience for any strategy fan. 


Depending on the scenario, you can decide what your towns should produce, which HQs receive reinforcements, how your chain of command is formed, what sort of troop and equipment mix you put in each unit, if you use air, land, or sea strategies or maybe even call in the paratroopers – the possibilities are endless! Almost any type of strategy or tactic can be used effectively in Advanced Tactics. Perhaps the most powerful feature in Advanced Tactics is the ability to generate random maps and scenarios, giving the player endless hours of strategic fun without having to repeat a single battle or campaign!
