Posted: Friday, January 20, 2012 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

Plus Unity of Command brings home the bronze medal in this highly competitive category

Slitherine and Matrix Games would like to congratulate The Lordz Games Studio (www.thelordzgamesstudio.com) for winning the Usenet’s Wargame of the Year Award 2011! This coveted honor is bestowed upon the best historical wargame of the year and, given the near universal critical and fan acclaim of Panzer Corps, the award is no surprise!

Slitherine and Matrix Games would also link to congratulate 2x2 Games (www.unityofcommand.net) for taking the Bronze medal in the same category for Unity of Command. Although Unity of Command is 2x2’s first release, it’s been met with great success and this award is well deserved!

About Panzer Corps

Panzer Corpsis a brand new turn-based strategy game that reinvents a classic genre. Produced and developed by a team of experts and brought to perfection by a community of hundreds of fans, the game has evolved over 2 years to become what can be defined as a modern classic! Set in World War II, Panzer Corps puts the player in charge of Axis armies, taking their core force with them through the entire war. The use of combined-arms tactics requires each general to make use of the strengths and exploit the weaknesses of their opponents. Panzer Corps is designed to replicate the feeling of a classic wargame, but brings it up to 21st century standards and to a whole new generation of gamers.

About Unity of Command

Unity of Commandlets you replay the epic conflict that was the Stalingrad Campaign of World War II. In this turn-based game of strategy and cunning, observe how opportunity leads the German army to advance recklessly into the steppes of southern Russia. And as the story unfolds, join the Soviet campaign to repel the invaders... As these legendary battles play out on the hex board, the tension of decision making and difficulties of conducting operations on a massive scale emerge. Command armies and fronts in maneuver warfare, thrust and encircle, capture cities and cross continents; but never, ever forget to watch your supply lines.

Experience the highly fluid, enormously large battles of maneuver in a turn-based strategy setting. Take command in this mobile, back-and-forth sort of war where logistics and poor weather are often the decider, and defeat and victory are sometimes just a mile, or a day, apart.

Get more information on Panzer Corps from its official on the Slitherine site or on the Matrix Games site and more information on Unity of Command from its Matrix product page.
