Posted: Thursday, July 10, 2008 by Sean Drummy

Type: Update

A positively huge update now available for the WWII turn-based wargaming classic

Matrix Games and Campaign Series Legion are thrilled to announce the release of a major new update for the acclaimed WWII tactical turn-based hit, John Tiller’s Campaign Series. This comprehensive 1.03 brings many fixes and manual additions along with far too many improvements and new features to be listed here. A full change list is available in this forum post.

 

The update addresses many longstanding community issues especially dealing with the dynamic campaign feature and the “Cave bug” found in Rising Sun. A few of the many new notable features include 16 new scenarios to West Front, 8 new scenarios to East Front, varying visibility factors (including night and day operations), massive OOB expansions and revisions, new units for the US Army, Germans, and Soviets, and new engineer capabilities (bridging, mining, construction). Also included are new, more realistic assault rules. The update is quite large (214MB) and it is recommended that all Campaign Series owners install this great new update.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Many issues and problems that have pestered the community since Talonsoft release the game have been addressed and it’s truly gratifying to see such a great game get that much better!”

 

The John Tiller's Campaign Series compilation exemplifies tactical war-gaming at its finest by bringing you the entire collection of TalonSoft's award-winning campaign series. Containing TalonSoft's West Front, East Front, and Rising Sun platoon-level combat series, as well as all of the official add-ons and expansion packs, the Matrix Edition allows players to dictate the events of World War II from the tumultuous beginning to its climatic conclusion.

 

Reinforce your countrymen at the Western Front. Swarm Japanese strongholds on your way to their homeland. Crush the enemy on the Eastern Front. Protect the U.S. coast from Japanese invasion. March into Germany standing victorious with your allies. This exclusive compilation proudly offers more than 350 scenarios, fought by more than 35 countries stretching from France to the American coast.

 

Get the update here. This update is comprehensive and will bring the game up to version 1.03.

Pike and Shot: Campaigns announced!

Monday, July 20, 2015

Never do any enemy a small injury for they are like a snake which is half beaten and it will strike back the first chance it gets.” – Niccolò Machiavelli

Boots are pounding the ground for days. Dirty and grimy soldiers are marching in the ranks with the sergeants trying (mostly in vain) to keep them disciplined.

Too many days have passed since the last plundered town and now food is starting to run out. The men are nervous.

Suddenly a cry from the head of the column. Scouting cavalry have spotted enemy heavy pikemen formations supported by artillery.

It is time to spill some blood!

Pike and Shot: Campaigns is a brand new all-in-one package. It includes the Pike and Shot base game and the Tercio to Salvo expansion, plus 21 new skirmish army lists for the rest of Europe during the period of the Italian Wars (1494-1559) covering the armies of England, Scotland, Denmark, Sweden, German States, Austria, Hungary, Transylvania, the Ottoman Empire, Poland-Lithuania and Russia!

But the main new feature is the strategic map system, implemented to allow you to lead your armies to victory over an entire theatre of operations, taking into account strategic considerations such as terrain, available manpower, supply, attrition, sieges and economic damage.

Thursday, July 16, 2015

The first thing you see is the sky covered by falling stars. Next you observe explosions scarring the ground and destroying your cities. When it's too late, you realize what is truly happening. Your planet doesn't belong to you anymore. It belongs to the Machines!

Legions of Steel is releasing today! The game depicts a dark future where the majority of the races inhabiting the Milky Way are driven to unite against the deadliest menace of all: endless hordes of sentient machines devoted to the annihilation of all other species. These latter formed an Alliance trying to cripple the enemy by knocking out their underground facilities. This kind of mission is not suitable for large groups of units and the Alliance is forced to rely on smaller - but better trained and equipped - squads named Commandos!
