Type: Press Release

 

Matrix Games, Slitherine (www.slitherine.com) and VR Designs (www.vrdesigns.nl) are happy to announce the release of the v1.04 update for the incredible turn-based operational strategy game Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue. The update makes some fine-tuning adjustments to the rules, and adds improvements, additional fixes and eradicates bugs for a better experience.

The v1.04 update shifts the balance towards the Soviet side, most noticeably in the Case Blue campaign. The Soviets receive an extra 700 infantry per round in July and August (10k per month) and 1,400 extra per round in September and October (20k per month). Additional improvements are an added variant for Fog of War in the statistics for players who don’t want to be able to see the Soviet force size and composition. Oil is also more constrained in this update, with 2k less oil given to Germany at the start, with less in August and September.

There are a number of fixes as well, such as fixing the U-2 to act as a bomber and not as a kamikaze interceptor, and fixing the bug with the avoid Krasnodar, Grozny, and Baku cards not working properly. The v1.04 update also fixed a few problems with crashes in certain situations.

To get the full changelog of the v1.04 update, read it on the Matrix Games forums. To get the update, visit the download page for Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue or run the “Check for Update” option from the game menu. The v1.04 update is comprehensive and will bring all version of Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue to v1.04.

 

About Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue 

The development team behind the award-winning game Decisive Campaigns: From Warsaw to Paris is back with a new and improved game engine that focuses on the decisive year and theater of World War II! Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue simulates the German drive to Stalingrad and into the Caucasus of the summer of 1942, as well as its May preludes (2nd Kharkov offensive, Operation Trappenjagd) and also the Soviet winter counter-offensive (Operation Uranus) that ended with the encirclement of 6th Army in Stalingrad and the destruction of the axis minor armies. 

Well researched and packed with depth, including detailed unit data down to vehicle level and historically realistic combined arms gameplay, Case Blue also features an easy-to-learn interface and a good AI. In the campaign scenarios, next to the victory conditions, you will have to deal with high command orders that can instruct you to hold or take specific cities. Do well and earn prestige that enables you to request reinforcements and influence high command decisions, do bad and you’ll have to be careful not to get sacked.

Spread the Revolution or fight against it! March to Glory is OUT!

Thursday, April 12, 2018

''Napoleon is a torrent which as yet we are unable to stem. Moscow will be the sponge that will suck him dry.'' - Prince Mikhail Illarionovich Golenishchev-Kutuzov, Field Marshal of the Russian Empire

Napoleon Bonaparte seems unstoppable. His military genius combined with the revolutionary fire of his troops has crushed every enemy that stood against him. He has already proved his ability against the Austrians in northern Italy, and now, as Emperor is ready to overthrow every European kingdom.

Is he the Son of the Revolution, the bringer of freedom for all the people under the Ancien-Regimes, or a full of ambitions tyrant? Whatever the answer is, it is clear that only on the battlefield Europe’s destiny will be defined.
