Type: Press Release

Plenty of improvements and fixes have rolled off the production line and are ready for action

Matrix Games, Slitherine (www.slitherine.com) and VR Designs (www.vrdesigns.nl) are proud to announce the release of the comprehensive 2.08 update for their critically and fan praised strategy game, Advanced Tactics: Gold. The new update includes plenty of improvements and alterations to the powerful editor, many bug fixes, and minor rule changes/balance tweaks all of which combine to make it an upgrade you won’t want to miss!

September means back to school for many, and Advanced Tactics: Gold is no exception! VR Designs has been posting regular lessons at Advanced Tactics: Gold college, located over at their website.

Erik Rutins, Director of Product Development at Matrix Games, said “Advanced Tactics: Gold is one of the gems in our catalog.  Very satisfying gameplay, including advanced and realistic modeling of many wargame concepts, while offering near infinite replayability and both historical, random and casual scenarios, it has something for every wargamer and fits every schedule and budget!”

Building off of the enormous success of Advanced Tactics: World War II, the Gold edition gives players a more powerful game editor, much improved random game engine, many new features and abilities, and more. Advanced Tactics: Gold also comes with an updated manual and ever-changing and expanding wiki, a freshly revamped scenario bank, new graphics throughout the game, more troop types, as well as some new scenarios. VR Designs has also been hard at working listening to player feedback, so Advanced Tactics: Gold also comes with many incremental changes and improvements based on community feedback!

But perhaps the most exciting feature in Advanced Tactics: Gold is the near limitless potential for replayability. The strong mod community will be able to create engaging, rich scenarios with the vastly improved editor, and players looking to hop straight into the action can enjoy a much improved random game experience that comes with many new rules, actions, and gameplay mechanics.

Owners of Advanced Tactics: World War IIwill receive a $15 discount off the price of Advanced Tactics: Gold! Follow this link to obtain your discount code.

Just a few of the many features include:

  • Versatile Engine – The Advanced Tactics: Gold engine is capable of modeling a wide variety of warfare from historical and modern battles to science fiction conflicts and warring fantasy realms!
  • Improved Scenario Editor – The scenario editor is very powerful and allows the player to edit almost any aspect of the game in great detail.
  • Expanded Random Game Mode – Many new features and game mechanics like more unit types, unit fuel, climates and seasons, and more.
  • Many incremental improvements based on community feedback
  • A whole lot more!

Strong Panzer groups break through the Red Army lines. Ambitious generals like Guderian and Hoth push their mechanized forces to their limits.
