Back to News Listing Carriers at War Is Updated!

Posted: Tuesday, January 29, 2008 by Matrix Support

Type: Update

The flight deck has been prepped and a new update is cleared for takeoff

Matrix Games and Strategy Studies Group (www.ssg.com.au) are pleased to announce that a new update is available for the excellent naval warfare strategy game, Carriers at War. The update will bring a brand new scenario called Tarawa taking place in November 1942, a hefty number of editor improvements to make custom scenarios that much easier to create, and plenty of gameplay improvements and scenario tweaks. The new scenario, Tarawa, comes with plenty of mystery variants so you can never be sure what forces are opposing you or what their plans will be.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Carriers at War is one of those games that just stays on your hard drive long after you’ve installed it.  This new release is following in the footsteps of the original by adding more improvements and more content as time goes on.  Now with a brand new scenario and plenty of mystery variants, there’s still no reason to stop playing this addicting title.”

 

Gregor Whiley of SSG also added "The new scenario and its mystery variants are a fantastic strategic puzzle. Combine those with dynamically changing weather conditions and the constantly teetering scale of luck and there’s yet another endlessly replayable scenario that should keep armchair admirals guessing for quite a while."

 

Carriers at War is a WWII naval combat and strategy game set in the Pacific Theatre. Putting you at the heart of WWII carrier combat, you are in charge of commanding carriers with powerful airgroups tasked with delivering a knockout blow to the enemy, while avoiding retribution at the hands of a canny foe. Although it includes land-based airpower, surface combat and invasions, Carriers at War focuses heavily on carrier fleet command strategy, which requires the player to use all of their naval prowess to best the enemy. Throughout the wide range of scenarios found in Carriers at War, history buffs and strategy fans alike will recognize and enjoy playing through famous engagements including Pearl Harbor, Midway, Coral Sea, Eastern Solomons, and more! This 2007 release is a fully modern, brand new Carriers at War, though it remains true to the incredible gameplay of the original wargame classic.

 

Get more information on Carriers at War from its official Matrix Games webpage. This update is comprehensive and will bring the version of the game up to 1.02.

Strategic Command Blog Post n1! New Features and Game's Scope

Thursday, June 23, 2016

Strategic Command WWII: War in Europe is the ground-breaking next step in the highly acclaimed Strategic Command series of turn based strategy games.

A Return to Hexes

Our aim with the Strategic Command series is to make attractive, playable and historical games. Our aim for this release is to make a game that will provide one of the best strategic level re-creations of 20th century warfare, while also being a whole lot of fun to play.

The first and possibly biggest decision for us was to return the series to using hexes rather than tiles. There are pros and cons to both, but it was clear that the majority of those who expressed a preference preferred hexes, and we didn't disagree. So hexes are back!

Accessible and Entertaining Historical Games

The concept behind our games is that they should be easy and fun to play, while also being fully immersed in their historical setting.

So combat is quick to carry out, simply click on your units to move/attack. German units can be near Warsaw in no time at all!
