Type: Press Release

 

Matrix Games, Slitherine (www.slitherine.com), and Western Civilization Software (www.west-civ.com) announced today the release of the major new 1.5 update for the tactical turn-based World War II game Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear!. This official adaptation of the multi-award-winning board game is already garnering wide acclaim of its own, with Out of Eight rating it 7/8, PC4War giving it a 5/5 and Net Wargaming Italia giving it a rating of 8.8/10. This second update contains fixes and improvements to overall gameplay as well as knocking out a few bug

 

This will be the official version for the upcoming Conflict of Heroes tournament at The Wargamer (www.wargamer.com). More information on that can be found here.

Players can look forward to the addition of terrain sculpting controls to the editor to allow them to make more varied and diverse maps on their own. We also added in a new option to show elevations in a more high-contrast style which is closer to the original board game maps while also making the elevations easier to see for players who use the top-down view.

This update includes many other improvements, including fixes for all the reported bugs since release, as well as audio notification for multiplayer chat messages, a new preference to always display units above the terrain, unit tooltip information for carried units, additional damage types (including Berserk) and full implementation of the extra 1d6 APs card for groups.

To download the patch either run “Check for Update” via the game menu or via download link here.
