Type: Press Release

Try your hand at commanding thunderous Soviet tanks in the battle for Berlin

Matrix Games and Binary Evolution Studios (www.binary-evolution-studios.com) are thrilled to release a playable demo for their new WWII strategy release Operation Barbarossa – The Struggle for Russia. The demo is available from the Operation Barbarossa downloads page in addition to Gamer’s Hell and Worth Playing.

 

The demo will give players the ability to play through the tutorial and first scenario in the campaign as the Germans. A separate scenario is also available so players can command the mighty Red Army as they attempt to seize Berlin from its hardened defenders.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “This new demo for Operation Barbarossa offers just a small snapshot of the fantastic “General” series style gameplay that comes with the full game and its campaigns and scenarios. Couple that with the powerful yet easy-to-use editor and you’ve got a remarkable game system with outstanding replayability!  Operation Barbarossa has everything that made the old classics great, but as a new supported game series with a full editor, the sky is the limit.”

 

On June 22, 1941 an avalanche of 153 German divisions crash into the Soviet Union and the largest military operation in history is begun: Operation Barbarossa. In this elegant turn-based strategy game, compelling gameplay combines with gripping history to create an addictive mix.

 

Aimed at all levels, from those who have never played a wargame before to those who know the history of World War II in detail, this is an entertaining and mentally challenging game of combined arms strategy.  Your armor, infantry, artillery and air units will follow you through the most crucial battles of the Eastern Front.  You will be able to choose from 47 different upgrades and improvements for your units as well as add new forces based on your success in the campaign.

 

Take command in two German and one Soviet campaign as well as individual scenarios and determine the fate of the Eastern Front.  When you’ve played through all the campaigns and scenarios, try your hand at the editor to create new scenarios for yourself or to share with others!
