Back to News Listing Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps Now Available!

Posted: Monday, August 06, 2012 by Scott Parrino

Type: Press Release

 

Matrix Games and Slitherine (www.slitherine.com), along with Flashback Games and The Lordz Games Studio (www.thelordzgamesstudio.com) are excited to announce the release of Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps, the stand-alone expansion to the critically-acclaimed and award-winning Panzer Corps series. A year after release of its predecessor, Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps is packed with new units, new scenarios, new battlegrounds, and much more!

Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps takes place in 1941, a time when the Axis armies seemed to be on the offensive everywhere. With the arrival of the “Deutsches Afrikakorps” or “DAK” in North Africa and its leader Erwin Rommel, the end seemed to be near for the Allies. Players take command of the DAK with the goals of capturing the Suez Canal and the oil-rich lands of the Arabian Peninsula. If they are cunning enough, resourceful and command their troops well, players might be able to strike towards the jewel of the British Empire: India.

New unit types, new scenario objectives that can change during battle, improved AI, new tile-sets, an improved editor and much, much more come loaded in Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps. New players will be able to purchase Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps without the need to already own Panzer Corps, while current players can add the game onto their menu with ease.  

Be sure to check out the interview with Flashback Games Alex Shargin and an AAR of one of the scenarios in Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps!

Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps can be purchased as a full stand alone game by players new to the Panzer Corps series. For more information on Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps, visit the official product page on the Slitherine or Matrix Games sites.

 

About Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps

Welcome to the desert!

The year is 1941 and you will lead the German Afrika Korps, and it`s Axis allies, into Libya and Tunisia during the North African Campaign of World War II.

The reputation of the "Deutsches Afrikakorps" or "DAK" was synonymous with that of its first commander Erwin Rommel. Now it is up to you to overwhelm the Allied forces in North Africa, secure the Suez Canal and take hold of the oil-rich lands of the Arabian Peninsula; maybe even invade the underbelly of the British Empire and threaten its crown jewel: India.

With more than 20 new units, 24 new scenarios, new dynamic and varied scenarios and weather types, players will have their wits and tactics tested in this turn-based strategy game of the award-winning Panzer Corps series!

War in the West: Operation Torch gets a release date!

Thursday, August 27, 2015

Gary Grigsby’s War in the West is unprecedented in its historical depth, detail and scope among computer wargames that depict the entire Western Front of World War II both on land and in the air.  War in the West is a “monster game” by any measure, but retains the ease of play that made its predecessor, War in the East, a classic.

Nevertheless, 2by3 Games has not been resting on their laurels. The team was eager to add more material and many improvements to the game. The result of all these efforts is Operation Torch, a stunning expansion that covers not only the eponymous operation by the combined forces of the Western Allies against the Afrika Korps after El Alamein, but also much more!
