Back to News Listing World War One – La Grande Guerre Gets an Update

Posted: Thursday, February 19, 2009 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

A sizeable new update is crossing no man’s land and heading to hard drives!

Matrix Games and AGEOD (www.ageod.com) are pleased to release the comprehensive 1.0.6A update for World War One – La Grand Guerre. This latest update brings over 50 tweaks and fixes, some of which are major stability improvements. In addition, there are a score of scenario improvements. Overall, the update brings more stability and playability to World War One.

Also, the final full high resolution manual is now completed! This manual will be included with the update. It is much larger, more comprehensive (and prettier) than the existing manual and it is recommended that all players give it a look.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “AGEOD has steadily been improving the gaming experience of World War One since its release. Additionally, we are happy to present to gamers the completed full, high resolution manual which will no doubt be of great use to all players.”

 

As Europe mobilized in August 1914, both sides of what would be called World War I chanted “Home before the leaves fall!’’ Four long and bloody years later Europe lay in ruins and many once-enthusiastic patriots returned home disenchanted and broken ... Will YOU be able to prevent that outcome?

 

Take charge as a military and political leader during the most trying and critical times of World War One!  As either a member of the Central Powers, the Entente or a neutral nation, you will confront the epic gauntlet of challenges that faced the likes of Kitchener, Joffre, Luddendorf, Clemenceau, Czar Nicholas II or Enver Pasha in scenarios that range from single theatres to the entire grand campaign.

 

Gaze over an incredibly detailed, beautifully crafted, and massive WWI map as you control dozens of different ground units, planes, and ships. To add further flavor to an already chaotic and intense period of conflict, hundreds of military, economic, political and technological events can help turn the tide of war for or against you. Deftly craft new alliances and jockey for any advantage that can break the deadlock by using ambassadors in an innovative and intuitive diplomacy system.

 

Get the update here. This update is comprehensive and will bring any previous version of the game to version 1.0.6A.

Monday, March 02, 2015

The real question is not whether machines think but whether men do.” (B. F. Skinner– American Psychologist)

Directly inspired from the board game of the same name, Legions of Steel is a fast-paced and thrilling tactical game. Squads of machines and humans fight hard in the inhospitable undergrounds of the production facilities. With the one shot, one kill philosophy adopted by the developers, every move, line of sight, and action point becomes a resource of strategic importance.

Today we are happy to announce that the game will be available in May 2015 on both PC and iPad! Initially announced for late 2014, developer Studio Nyx decided to extend the development period in order to provide more content into the game, and especially nerve-racking multiplayer modes that should seduce fans of competitive and intense matches!

“The path to paradise begins in hell(Dante Alighieri – Italian poet)

The angelic and peaceful kingdom of Gilrand is in great danger. Led by Lord Devil in person, merciless demons are raiding the defenseless Human world. To repel such a despicable attack, humanity can only rely on an holy and mysterious order of fearless knights, priests, and wizards known as “The Order of Radiance”.

An epic fight between these two fundamentally opposed factions is bound to begin!

To End All Wars Breaking The Deadlock Released!

Tuesday, February 24, 2015

Once the mass of the defending infantry become possessed of low morale, the battle is as good as lost.” (Douglas Haig – Commander of British Expeditionary Force)

Early 1915 – After a massive initial push from the Central Powers on the Western Front, the war is bogged down. Commanders from both sides protect their positions with strong defensive structures and fail to find breaches in the enemy lines. Artillery and barbed wire make the assaults deadly and wasteful. But in Breaking the Deadlock, the first expansion of Ageod’s World War 1 wargame To End All Wars, players can develop new tactics to outsmart their opponent and break the stalemate once and for all!

Breaking the Deadlock focuses on key moments of the Great War. It provides a series of short, intense and very detailed scenarios in which every single turn has decisive consequences on the final outcome of the battle!

And It's not over! We are also releasing patch 1.02 for the base game, bringing a host of improvements, including bug fixes, scenario changes and much more!
