Back to News Listing Decisive Campaigns: The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris Now Available!

Posted: Thursday, August 26, 2010 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

The new wargame from the makers of Advanced Tactics is rolling off the production line and headed into battle!

Matrix Games and VR Designs (www.vrdesigns.nl) are thrilled to announce that their WWII operational-level wargame, Decisive Campaigns: The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris is now available for purchase! In this debut release of a major new wargame series, players can experience the same tough strategic decisions and intense operational-level fighting as the leaders of historical operations like Case White, Case Yellow, and the hypothetical Operation Sealion!

 

To celebrate the new release, we’ve released another pack of screenshots to go alongside the new After Action Report and Developer’s Notes available on The Wargamer.  We recommend reading through all of these for more info about The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Decisive Campaigns: The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris has the potential to be an instant classic and this is just the beginning of what we feel is a definitive new series in wargaming. With the innovative combination of strategic-level options and realistic operational gameplay along with a fantastic combat engine, players have a realistic but wholly addictive blend of strategy and battle action!”

 

The development team behind the award-winning game Advanced Tactics: World War II is back with a new and improved game engine that focuses on the decisive early days of World War II! Decisive Campaigns: The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris is the first in an innovative series of operational World War II wargames that also include a strategic element.  The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris simulates Germany’s military successes in Poland and France in 1939 and 1940 (including also a hypothetical “Sea Lion” invasion of Great Britain if you do well enough).

 

Well researched and packed with depth, including detailed unit data down to the squad and vehicle level and historically realistic combined arms gameplay, The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris also features an easy-to-learn interface and a ferocious AI.  Before each campaign, players choose actions and options at a strategic level which can have far-reaching effects on how the actual battle unfolds, with many plausible hypothetical outcomes. 

 

Once in the battle, players move regiments and divisions, coordinate attacks and manage logistics in what we feel is the definitive game on the campaigns of the early Blitzkrieg. There are also unique actions for individual historical generals to give a particular objective or front the extra needed push to victory.  Decisive Campaigns: The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris also includes a unique multiplayer feature where players can split up Axis or Allied armies between several people to add an added level of realism and cooperation!
