Back to News Listing A Second Tutorial Video Released for Command Ops: Battles from the Bulge!

Posted: Thursday, June 10, 2010 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

The second of several tutorial videos is now available for prospective commanders

Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com), Slitherine Strategies (www.slitherine.com) and Panther Games (www.panthergames.com) are pleased to release to the public the second tutorial video for the highly anticipated new World War II strategy game, Command Ops: Battles from the Bulge.

 

Command Ops: Battles from the Bulge is the pinnacle of historical accuracy and realism in operational command wrapped in a very playable and modern interface that includes an extremely capable AI opponent as well as editing tools to make your own maps, scenarios and units. So far, Battles from the Bulge has enjoyed a strong positive initial reaction from the press, scoring an impressive 9 out of 10 on Eurogamer.dk!

 

The second tutorial video, entitled Assess, Plan, and Order, gives players details on the crux of Battles for the Bulge: how to evaluate key battle factors, prepare a plan of attack, and order units in battle. In addition, be sure to check out the first tutorial video, Getting Started, and the general information video, Game Concepts – both of which are available for download from the official product page.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Command Ops: Battles from the Bulge has been met with acclaim from both gamers and the press thus far and we’re confident the praise is just getting started. The meticulous work and admirable effort put into Battles from the Bulge represents the highly popular latest and greatest title in an already award-studded series of games!”

 

Assess, Plan, Order and React – The Decisions are Yours!

 

Acclaimed developer Panther Games brings us to the bitter cold of Western Europe during the Winter of 1944 with Command Ops: Battles from the Bulge.  Although the Battle of the Bulge is ground that has been visited by wargamers before, it has never been done with this level of fidelity and historical accuracy.  The most advanced and realistic model of command decision-making implemented to date in a commercial wargame, combined with thorough historical research on the battlefields and forces involved in this campaign sets Command Ops: Battles from the Bulge apart from the competition.

 

Set during the hard fighting of the Battle of the Bulge, Command Ops lets gamers assess, plan, order and react at the operational level just like a real Corps, Division and Brigade commander. Hundreds of hours of gameplay await armchair generals who will be challenged to fight their way across 27 scenarios that stretch from the initial German surprise offensive to the powerful Allied counter-attack.

 

Command Ops: Battles from the Bulge also sports some of the most advanced and impressive AI ever devised in an operational-level wargame!  It is your choice whether to manage every detail of your army, or have the friendly AI manage the war on a lower level while you plan the larger scale maneuvers designed to make short work of your enemy.  Just as a historical commander, you can choose where you need to step in and when you need to stand back and let your subordinates do their jobs. 

 

The enemy AI will use its skill to launch well-timed and coordinated strikes as it probes your lines for weakness while realistically reacting to your movements!  In addition, for the enthusiastic mod community awaiting Command Ops, powerful tools like MapMaker and ScenMaker allow for the creation of maps and scenarios further adding to already near limitless replayability.

Aggressors Testers Diary - Modding

Friday, June 15, 2018

As a young player I was always browsing game files trying to find a way to change them. It was partially curiosity and partially a wish to modify the rules to my own liking, because no matter how great a game is, there is always something you want to tweak or adjust.

The option of modding was part of the game design from the very beginning as I wanted to give the players the opportunity to create the Aggressors realm with me in an easy and user-friendly way. Over time, the idea was brought even further – I decided to create a framework for strategy games of different worlds and historical eras.

June, 1944. Europe has been under the Nazi heel for 4 long years. Even if the Eastern Front is crumbling and the Red Army counterattacks are in full swing, the German Armed Forces are still a formidable opponent and are making very costly every inch of ground conquered.

Only a breach into the Festung Europa and the creation of a second front could ensure the beginning of the end of the Third Reich.

Aggressors Dev Diary 3 - Diplomacy

Friday, June 8, 2018

Diplomacy makes strategy games feel alive. No matter how many barbarian hordes invade your borders nor how cunning their attacks are, without a leader who you can talk with to negotiate a potential ceasefire the enemy simply does not feel real.

We wanted to make Aggressors feel realistic, so we tried to bring some "life" into diplomacy. Interactions with an AI cannot replace the nuances of a communication between two human players, but if you give the AI a number of tools that it can use whilst following its own goals then the interaction suddenly feels much more real.
