Back to News Listing Guns of August Gets a New Update

Posted: Thursday, January 14, 2010 by Sean Drummy

Type: Update

A small but thunderous new update is now loaded and ready to fire!

Matrix Games and Adanac Command Studies are proud to release the comprehensive 1.34 update for their award winning WWI strategy game, Guns of August. The new update comes with a few bug fixes, including a problem with rail movement when a unit withdraws from a hex, and a rule change to the amount of naval units required to prevent an invasion from taking place in a port.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said, “Guns of August has been on my hard drive for quite some time and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. The unique and rarely covered challenges presented by the First World War are fantastically modeled here creating a balance between fun and realism.”

Guns of August puts players in command of waging World War I at a grand strategic scale from Paris to Baghdad. The entire Western, Eastern, Italian and Balkan fronts are included as are the three fronts of the Ottoman Empire. Production, combat, diplomacy, research, trenches, fog of war, and not to mention land, sea and air combat are all included! Use land units like infantry corps complete with separate artillery units for precisely directing barrages on the enemy's line.

As time goes on, players must deal with changing combat situations like the introduction of Stossstruppen and even mighty tanks charging through lines to break through the stalemate! Guns of August fully supports a robust AI to fight against or play by email. Step back to the early 20th Century and hear the guns of August!

Get the update here. This update is comprehensive and will bring all previous versions to 1.34.
