A media extravaganza is released for the upcoming Civil War strategy game!

Matrix Games and 2by3 Games (www.2by3games.com) are thrilled to announce the release of a new detailed promotional video for their highly anticipated American Civil War grand strategy game, Gary Grigsby’s War Between the States. The latest tutorial video features the Executive Producer of War Between the States and one of the founders of 2by3 Games, Joel Billings, talking about the various features and gameplay elements found in War Between the States. In addition, the table of contents for the game’s manual is also now available so gamers can get a feel for the depth of gameplay and realism available in this new masterpiece-in-the-making from the legendary 2by3 Games team! Both the video and table of contents are available from this page.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “War Between the States offers so much to strategy and Civil War fans alike. The game’s innovative design, historical accuracy and detail, ease of play and near infinite replayability make it clear that gamers should be clearing some room on their schedules for the release of War Between the States.”

 

Taking gamers back to the American Civil War, Gary Grigsby’s War Between the States allows players to experience the trials and tribulations of the role of commander-in-chief for either side.  Historically accurate, detailed and finely balanced for realistic gameplay, War Between the States is also easy to play and does not take months to finish.

 

Promote and cultivate talented young colonels or brigadiers to build Corps and Army commanders that will help you fight and manage the war effort from battles to training of recruits with the utmost efficiency and success.  An innovative multi-faceted rank promotion system allows leaders to gain in abilities and power based on their successes, while also simulating the historical progression of leaders during the war.  Each decision you make must be weighed carefully, as promoting and demoting leaders, entering neutral states, raising troops and many other actions cost you the political capital that will determine your ability to achieve victory.

 

Explore the historical tactics of the day to find the best way to win. Use cavalry to raid the enemy supply depots and conduct reconnaissance to determine the best place to strike and then engage the enemy head on and watch the epic push and pull of battle unfold in front of you. In between battles, the mighty Union navy or brave Confederate raiders can strangle and disrupt supply flow at critical times in your campaign.  Build river gunboats and transports to exploit the strategic value of the Mississippi and entrench and fortify key locations to deny passage to the enemy.

 

Test your mettle and strategic vision in one of the most bitterly fought contests in history – the War Between the States.

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. Strengthened by divisions coming from the Eastern Front and with an extended use of troops trained in infiltration and assault tactics (Stormtroopers), the Germans were able to achieve the largest territory advance of the war.

However, this all-out offensive didn’t gain a decisive victory. The Germans lost irreplaceable veteran troops and the conquest of the new territories resulted in hard to defend positions with a supply line that was stretched too far.
