Type: Press Release

 

Matrix Games, Slitherine (www.slitherine.com), and NorbSoftDev (www.norbsoftdev.net) are proud to announce the release of the American Civil War strategy game Scourge of War: Gettysburg and its two expansions Pipe Creek and Antietam. The release of Scourge of War comes days after the wonderful news of NorbSoftDev signing an exclusive distributing deal with Slitherine and Matrix Games, bringing the popular American Civil War game series to a larger audience.

Scourge of War: Gettysburg and its expansions are getting outstanding support from Matrix Games and Slitherine in the form of a new routing server to make multiplayer a seamless experience. A release day update is also available for all previous owners of Scourge of War: Gettysburg (and expansions) to bring their version up to date with the new Matrix/Slitherine release.  This new version includes a multitude of improvements and fixes, such as the new replay system, enhanced water detail, and more. The update also removes the existing DRM, with players no longer needing an active internet connection to activate the game. The update is comprehensive and will bring all versions of Scourge of War: Gettysburg and its expansions to version 1.50. Download the update by going to the Scourge of War: Gettysburg download page.

In Scourge of War: Gettysburg, you are in command as Union and Confederate forces meet in a rendezvous with history at the town of Gettysburg in July of 1863. Every engagement at Gettysburg has been meticulously researched and recreated, along with multiple “what if” scenarios to keep players on their toes.

Scourge of War: Pipe Creekputs the player in charge of the Union or Confederate forces in an alternate history version of the Gettysburg campaign. The Pipe Creek Line was a selected battle position for the Union’s Army of the Potomac as part of a circular assignment of the army’s corps. Historically, this plan was superseded by events during the Gettysburg Campaign, but now players will be able to experience what would have happened if the Pipe Creek Line plan was executed.

In Scourge of War: Antietam, players will take command of the Union or Confederate forces during the battles of Antietam and South Mountain in September of 1862. Antietam became known as the first major battle to take place on Union soil and the single bloodiest day of battle in American history.  Incredible heroism and sacrifice on both sides made this one of the hardest fought battles in the entire American Civil War and also gave President Abraham Lincoln the opportunity he sought for the Emancipation Proclamation.

Scourge of War: Gettysburgand its expansions feature incredibly detailed maps and authentic maps, with accurately modeled weapons, units, artillery, historical orders of battle, realistic weather and more to create a genuine experience of commanding either Union or Confederate troops on the battlefield. Players can take the fight online in cooperative play against the AI or against other human opponents, including fog and friction of war elements such as courier orders, with the possibility of supporting up to 32 players in one battle!
