Posted: Thursday, September 20, 2012 by Scott Parrino

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 Historically, this plan was superseded by events during the Gettysburg Campaign, but now players will be able to experience what would have happened if the Pipe Creek Line plan was executed.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!

Vietnam65 is out now on PC and iPad!

Thursday, March 05, 2015

"You will kill ten of us, we will kill one of you, but in the end, you will tire of it first” (Ho Chi Minh – President of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam 1945-69)

Fifty years ago Operation Rolling Thunder was launched. Supported by dozens of US fighter-bombers, this massive bombardment campaign aimed to persuade North Vietnam to cease its assistance to communist insurgents in South Vietnam and to destroy key military targets. Soon after ground units were also deployed and the US was fully involved in this iconic Cold War conflict!

But in Vietnam, firepower and technology only get you so far. Thanks to their knowledge of the terrain, close relationship with the local population and their mastery of guerrilla tactics, the Viet Cong and the North Vietnamese Army regulars proved to be a dangerous and elusive enemy

As a result, victory is not determined by simply eliminating the enemy, but rather by winning the Hearts and Minds of the local population, thereby gaining their support to crush the insurgency.

In Vietnam’65, a new strategy game releasing today on PC and iPad, players will experience the true essence of this war. Developer Every Single Soldier has focused on providing a realistic and credible Counter-Insurgency model.

Star Hammer Beta!

Wednesday, March 04, 2015

War Was Inevitable

Today we are excited to announce the development of a new 3D tactical space battles game called Star Hammer : The Vanguard Prophecy. Developer Black Lab Games is focused on designing a fascinating sci-fi game in which players will not only step into the shoes of a fleet commander – carefully selecting their spaceships and crew members – but also be at the spearhead of their squadron, maneuvering their capital ships like a hard-boiled captain!

The players will have to face a ferocious alien race - the Nautilid - which threat is as varied as it is innumerable and the game offers plenty of tactical situations in which players will have to take painful decisions. To succeed, players will need to be quick-learners to identify the weaknesses of the enemy and adopt an offensive behavior only when a clear breach appears.

Machines are taking control! Legions of Steel announced!

Monday, March 02, 2015

The real question is not whether machines think but whether men do.” (B. F. Skinner– American Psychologist)

Directly inspired from the board game of the same name, Legions of Steel is a fast-paced and thrilling tactical game. Squads of machines and humans fight hard in the inhospitable undergrounds of the production facilities. With the one shot, one kill philosophy adopted by the developers, every move, line of sight, and action point becomes a resource of strategic importance.

Today we are happy to announce that the game will be available in May 2015 on both PC and iPad! Initially announced for late 2014, developer Studio Nyx decided to extend the development period in order to provide more content into the game, and especially nerve-racking multiplayer modes that should seduce fans of competitive and intense matches!

“The path to paradise begins in hell(Dante Alighieri – Italian poet)

The angelic and peaceful kingdom of Gilrand is in great danger. Led by Lord Devil in person, merciless demons are raiding the defenseless Human world. To repel such a despicable attack, humanity can only rely on an holy and mysterious order of fearless knights, priests, and wizards known as “The Order of Radiance”.

An epic fight between these two fundamentally opposed factions is bound to begin!
