New v1.06 update offers better performance and game play improvements

Matrix Games and Slitherine Strategies (www.slitherine.com) are proud to announce yet another update is now available for their critically acclaimed WWII grand strategy game, Commander – Europe at War.

This 1.06 update comes with a large number of improvements, ranging from a 30% increase in frame rates and reduced loading and selection times to scores of balance tweaks and changes. The update also includes some map changes like the addition of Belfast as a city on the map, new rules like garrison units can no longer be transported by sea, convoys redirecting to Canada if London falls and much more!

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “It’s not hard to see why Commander – Europe at War has earned so much acclaim from anyone who has had the chance to play it. This new update is another significant improvement to an already very solid and enjoyable game.”

Iain McNeil of Slitherine Strategies also added, “We’re confident that Commander – Europe at War keeps getting better and better with each update.  Our goal has always been the perfect blend of historical gameplay and a streamlined, elegant interface.  We’re glad to work together with Matrix Games to bring this title to as many wargamers as we can worldwide.”

Commander – Europe at War
allows the player to command the armies of the Axis or the Allies in World War II. With only two goals at hand, survive and conquer, the player is charged with building and commanding the combined air, land and sea forces of his side. Advance your research to the cutting edge of technology in order to best your opponents and either conquer or liberate Europe!

Commander - Europe at War
is easy to learn and elegant, but deep in strategy and hard to master. Players will find themselves glued to their chairs from the beginning when all mayhem breaks loose across the continent with the invasion of Poland in 1939. Research new technologies, manage your manpower reserves, improve your industry, husband your oil supply and manufacture armies, fleets, and bombers to use all available strategic and tactical might to bring about victory. Commander - Europe at War includes realistic combat resolution that models supply morale, terrain, leadership, equipment, training, strategic weapons and fog of war. To capture the immense scope and distance of WWII, Commander - Europe at War includes 6 epic scenarios with different starting points, including the famous Barbarossa campaign, D-Day, the battle for France, and finally the Grand Campaign that will let the player refight the entirety of the Second World War the way they see fit!

This update is comprehensive and will bring the version of the game up to 1.06.
