Back to News Listing World War II: Road to Victory Is Updated

Posted: Wednesday, August 20, 2008 by Sean Drummy

Type: Update

Some potholes filled in and bumps smoothed out with this first update on the Road to Victory

Matrix Games and IQ Software (www.worldwar2.pl) are thrilled to announce the release of the first official update for the new release World War II: Road to Victory. The new comprehensive update file will bring the version of the game up to 1.201 and comes with dozens of bug fixes and a handful of new features, including PBEM play.  This is a major update for World War II: Road to Victory and it concentrates on addressing all reported serious issues with the initial release of the game to smooth out gameplay and assure the best possible experience while conquering Europe!

With the 1.201 resolving most major issues, the IQ Software team is hard at work putting new enhancements, features, and improvements into the game so stay tuned for subsequent updates because there is much more to come. This is not to say that the first update is without its share of enhancements and new features! The AI’s garrisoning protocol is improved along with a tweak to make the AI better at sea transporting. New features include PBEM support for up to 8 players, a new “siege” function and rule set for surrounded cities, new sea zones, Lend-Lease events, the addition of Malta as a territory, and much more!

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “The IQ Software team has been very responsive in working to improve the gameplay and overall experience in World War II: Road to Victory. This first update brings a healthy list of improvements and exciting new features but this is only the beginning!”

World War II: Road to Victory, the first release from IQ Software, puts the player at the helm of his choice of one or more Axis or Allied nations, including minor nations, amidst a continent torn by full scale war.  Combat, production, research and diplomacy are all fully modeled.

A diplomacy system based on political points allows you to sway possible allies to your side.  Naval combat includes fleet engagements, elusive raiders and U-Boats as well as a convoy system.  Concentrate precious industrial resources on building, training and upgrading a wide variety of combat units from airborne soldiers and armored divisions up to nuclear weapons!  Historical leaders enhance the performance of your armies and historical events give you choices that can change the course of history.  World War II: Road to Victory is fought across turns that vary in length by season and 25 km hexes with divisions and corps, giving the player a broad strategic picture of the war while still leaving enough room for operational decisions.

 

Get the update file here. This comprehensive update file will bring the game up to version 1.201 and previous save game files are NOT compatible with this version.

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.
