Back to News Listing Horse and Musket: Volume I Now Available!

Type: Press Release

Muster the troops and prepare to march, this anticipated turn-based strategy game is now ready for battle!

Matrix Games and Boku Strategy Games (www.bokustrategygames.com) are thrilled to announce that Horse and Musket: Volume I, Frederick the Great is now available for release! Now gamers can enjoy tons of scenarios and many new features to the popular and proven Horse and Musket game engine.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Horse and Musket: Volume I breathes new life into a proven game system, which happens to be one of the best ever designed for 18th Century warfare. It’s been a pleasure to work with Boku Strategy Games and Double Shot Designs on this new release and we can’t wait to see what the Horse and Musket system has in store for gamers in the future!”

 

The Seven Years’ War was fought across the globe and called by some the first “World War” as virtually every major power participated.  In the center of events was Prussia, almost constantly at war and lead by the now legendary Frederick the Great. 

 

Relive the exciting and trying days of Frederick the Great in Horse and Musket: Volume I, the improved and expanded combination of the previous Prussian War Machine and Prussia’s Glory titles. Horse and Musket: Volume I is a reboot of the successful Horse and Musket series, including not only two solid historical titles in one package, but also many new game features, a powerful new editor, and a complete graphics overhaul to an already acclaimed gaming system.

 

Through the classic turn-based hex system, gamers take command of a wide variety of historical units and leaders as they try to follow in Frederick’s footsteps across 10 of his famous battles, making for a whopping 40 scenarios in total. Maneuver your infantry battalions, cavalry squadrons, and artillery batteries to break the enemy lines and claim your own title as a great captain of history!

 

Perhaps the most important feature to celebrate with Horse and Musket: Volume I is the revival of this innovative gaming system!  With many new features and improvements, this latest release still has the same engaging game mechanics that bring to life the battlefields and tactics of the 18th Century!

Tigers on the Hunt first DLC announced! Welcome to Kursk!

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

On July 1943, the German war machine had the chance to deal a mortal blow to the Red Army. After the defeat at Stalingrad, it was necessary to regain the initiative and secure the Eastern front. For this purpose, the German High Command massed a huge quantity of Panthers and Tigers tanks in proximity of the Kursk salient, hoping to destroy the bulk of the Russian forces in this area.

But the Soviets, knowing in advance the Hitler’s plan, created over 190 miles of depth defense to stop the Panzerwaffe and they moved their armored forces in reserve for the counter-attack.

The largest tank battle of the entire Second World War was about to commence…
