Back to News Listing Highway To The Reich Patch v2.2.86 Released!

Posted: Monday, May 3, 2004 by Shaun Wallace

Type: Update

Matrix Games and Panther Games (www.panthergames.com) are pleased to release the latest update for the award-winning Highway to the Reich wargame.

The new v.2.2.86 includes fixes and improvements to the AI and the interface as well as a scenario balance tweak for the “Molenhoek Counterattack” scenario and some minor changes to US Airborne Infantry Company and Battalion HQ establishments. The AI changes include a fix for order delay problems, the allocation of line support units to the front, an artillery Defend issue and some improved unit fatigue handling. The interface changes include a fix for a rare unit report crash and a waypoint deletion issue.

Highway to the Reich is the second wargame released by Panther Games in their critically acclaimed Airborne Assault series. The new release covers the famous WW2 Operation Market Garden, a daring airborne operation designed by the Allies to breach the German defenses and end the war before Christmas of 1944. In Highway to the Reich, players get to take on the role of either the Allied or German commanders and pit their wits against either a computer controlled opponent or a human opponent via LAN or the internet.

Highway to the Reich is receiving rave reviews in the USA and Europe. It is being heralded as “revolutionary”, “extraordinary”, “the new future of wargaming”. At its heart is “the best AI ever seen in any game”. For the first time, players can command like real operational commanders. Or as the GameSpot reviewer puts it “It's hard to convey just how cool this system is, because not only does it eliminate the massive amount of micromanagement inherent in most wargames, but it does so in a way that makes it feel like you're really commanding forces in the field.”

Tigers on the Hunt first DLC announced! Welcome to Kursk!

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

On July 1943, the German war machine had the chance to deal a mortal blow to the Red Army. After the defeat at Stalingrad, it was necessary to regain the initiative and secure the Eastern front. For this purpose, the German High Command massed a huge quantity of Panthers and Tigers tanks in proximity of the Kursk salient, hoping to destroy the bulk of the Russian forces in this area.

But the Soviets, knowing in advance the Hitler’s plan, created over 190 miles of depth defense to stop the Panzerwaffe and they moved their armored forces in reserve for the counter-attack.

The largest tank battle of the entire Second World War was about to commence…
