Back to News Listing A New Mega Update for WW2: Time of Wrath

Posted: Tuesday, October 06, 2009 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

Tons of new changes and features improving nearly every aspect of the game!

Matrix Games and Wastelands Interactive (www.wastelands-interactive.com) are pleased to announce the release of a new update for their WWII turn-based grand strategy game, WW2: Time of Wrath. The new comprehensive 1.60 update marks the first major official update for Time of Wrath and it’s positively massive in size. It is strongly recommended that all Time of Wrath customers download and install this update.

 

As far as changes, the update includes roughly 200 tweaks and fixes such as: a number of crash fixes as well as host of minor fixes ranging from event fixes to interface fixes to gameplay and AI fixes all the way to map fixes. There are also plenty of new interesting historical events, better AI performance, and many user-requested interface improvements including an option to round unit strength to show a whole number only. Also along the line of interface improvements, there is a better display of movement for all units and rebase range for all aircraft in addition to an improved purchase screen. Customers will also enjoy improved orders of battle in a number of scenarios and a general rebalancing of air power.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “This update leaves no stone unturned and nearly every aspect of the game has been improved, polished, and tweaked. We’re always thrilled to work with our developers to provide a top-notch level of post-release support to our games and this update does just that!”

 

From the front lines in France and Russia to the deserts of North Africa and the airfields and convoys of Britain, the campaigns of World War II are yours to command in WW2: Time of Wrath! This turn-based grand strategy title, the highly improved and expanded sequel to WW2: Road to Victory, puts the player in charge of the political, economic and military decisions of one or more Axis or Allied nations, including minor nations. A diplomacy system based on political points allows you to sway possible allies to your side. An upgraded and expanded naval combat system includes fleet engagements, combat patrols, massive aircraft carriers, 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 hundreds of historical events like the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, Lend-Lease and more give you choices that can change the course of history. WW2: Time of Wrath 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 here. This update is comprehensive and will bring any previous version to 1.60. We strongly recommend that every owner of WW2: Time of Wrath upgrades to this version of the game.

Strategic Command Blog Post n1! New Features and Game's Scope

Thursday, June 23, 2016

Strategic Command WWII: War in Europe is the ground-breaking next step in the highly acclaimed Strategic Command series of turn based strategy games.

A Return to Hexes

Our aim with the Strategic Command series is to make attractive, playable and historical games. Our aim for this release is to make a game that will provide one of the best strategic level re-creations of 20th century warfare, while also being a whole lot of fun to play.

The first and possibly biggest decision for us was to return the series to using hexes rather than tiles. There are pros and cons to both, but it was clear that the majority of those who expressed a preference preferred hexes, and we didn't disagree. So hexes are back!

Accessible and Entertaining Historical Games

The concept behind our games is that they should be easy and fun to play, while also being fully immersed in their historical setting.

So combat is quick to carry out, simply click on your units to move/attack. German units can be near Warsaw in no time at all!
