Back to News Listing Matrix Games Releases Campaigns on the Danube v2.1 Patch

Posted: Friday, April 30, 2004 by Shaun Wallace

Type: Update

Matrix Games and Adanac Command Studies (www.adanaccommandstudies.com) are pleased to announce the release of the first post-release patch, version 2.1 for the Army-Level Napoleonic Wargame, Campaigns on the Danube 1805 & 1809. Campaigns on the Danube 1805 & 1809 is the first game released under Matrix Games Digital Express game line. Years in the making by Designer and Developer Frank Hunter, Campaigns on the Danube is a unique simulation of Napoleonic-era command.

The first update focuses on bugs reported by customers since the initial release. The list of fixes includes Army Commander attachments, Some rare text overlaps and blank combat screens, PBEM issues and map display issues. With this patch, virtually all reported bugs have been addressed and the play experience should be improved. As with all Matrix Games titles, support will continue based on customer feedback.

In Campaigns on the Danube, players command historic, powerful armies as they face off against each other in a clash that would be destined to defeat Austria but prove for a brief time that Napoleon could indeed be stopped. Players will be able to take command of the French forces under Napoleon or Austrians under Charles and strike at each other over a large hex-based map. Cavalry, infantry, artillery, engineers, leaders, supply wagons, depots, and other counters may be maneuvered for maximum military effect, while the flexible combat system may be used either through the game system itself or through miniatures play.

For any connoisseur of Napoleonic gaming, Campaigns on the Danube 1805 & 1809 is a fascinating and fast-paced game that is bound to provide countless hours of surprises and conquest.

Game Features:

  • Map covers central Europe from Ulm in the west to Olmutz in the northeast
  • Maneuver elements consist of divisions and brigades
  • Realistic command delays, orders send to subordinates may be lost
  • Realistic army supply rules
  • AI can play either side (French or Austrians)
  • PBEM capability
  • Ability to fight battles using miniatures
  • Seven scenarios covering 1805 and 1809

    Aggressors Testers Diary - Modding

    Friday, June 15, 2018

    As a young player I was always browsing game files trying to find a way to change them. It was partially curiosity and partially a wish to modify the rules to my own liking, because no matter how great a game is, there is always something you want to tweak or adjust.

    The option of modding was part of the game design from the very beginning as I wanted to give the players the opportunity to create the Aggressors realm with me in an easy and user-friendly way. Over time, the idea was brought even further – I decided to create a framework for strategy games of different worlds and historical eras.

    Tigers on the Hunt second DLC announced! Welcome to Normandy!

    Monday, June 11, 2018

    June, 1944. Europe has been under the Nazi heel for 4 long years. Even if the Eastern Front is crumbling and the Red Army counterattacks are in full swing, the German Armed Forces are still a formidable opponent and are making very costly every inch of ground conquered.

    Only a breach into the Festung Europa and the creation of a second front could ensure the beginning of the end of the Third Reich.
