Back to News Listing A New Demo and Update Now Available for Conquest! Medieval Realms

Posted: Wednesday, October 7, 2009 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

More polish to this engaging puzzle game and an extensive playable demo too!

Matrix Games and Slitherine Strategies (www.slitherine.com) are pleased to announce that a new playable demo and a new comprehensive 1.8 update are now available for Conquest! Medieval Realms. The new update adds hotseat play, fixes a rare crash bug, addresses an issue with selecting territories, and brings a number of other minor fixes.

 

In addition, the new demo includes all of the improvements that come with the latest update and adds two additional scenarios over and above what is already available from the older demo version.  Overall, this new demo gives gamers a much more accurate picture of the addicting puzzle-style gameplay found in the new Matrix Games release of Conquest! Medieval Realms. Newcomers as well as customers who already tried the old demo should check out this new version!

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Conquest! offers a unique ‘brain teasing’ style of play that combines pure strategy with a historical wargame setting. Anyone who enjoys wargames or puzzle games will find something to like in Conquest! Now that there is an expanded and improved demo, there’s no reason not to give the game a try!”

 

Conquest! Medieval Realms is a turn-based game that combines the pure strategic gameplay of Chess and the key principles of military strategy in a historical setting.  The objective is to conquer up to 7 opposing AI or human players by defeating their armies and capturing their lands.

 

To gain supremacy, players will need to unite their spread out lands, build a roaring economy, and raise powerful armies to divide and conquer their enemies.  Boost your income via markets and mines, upgrade your armies with stables and archery fields, or amass a large force, but sound strategy and careful thought will help you more than brute force.

 

Rows of castles and towers can help to stave off attacks while flanking maneuvers around mountains and terrain can surround and destroy foes. Tactics and long term strategy are essential to success as each battle will play out differently across an endless random map generator.  For players looking to create their own tactical teasers, an easy-to-use map editor is also available for the creation of custom scenarios and campaigns.

 

Get the update or the demo here. This update is comprehensive and will bring any previous version to 1.8.

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…
