Back to News Listing Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear! Gets a Massive Update, a Demo, and a Sale!

Posted: Thursday, December 20, 2012 by Scott Parrino

Type: Press Release

 

We are excited to announce, along with Western Civilization Software (www.west-civ.com), the release of the incredible v1.14 update and demo for the critically-acclaimed Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear!, the renowned tactical wargame set on the Eastern Front of World War 2.

Not content with just an update and a demo release, Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear! is also on sale at 25% off the regular download price until January 14, 2013!

On the fence with getting Conflict of Heroes? Have no fear, a demo is now available! The demo includes three demo scenarios, as well as some of the awesome features in the v1.14 update like the Classic AP system, 2D board game-style maps, and high resolution unit counters, as well as the ability to play the demo scenarios through the multiplayer lobby with other demo players and even players with the full game.

The v1.14 update is incredibly massive, chock full of improvements and fixes to make Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear! a hard-hitting wargame. Great care was taken to listen to both the computer and board game communities, and a lot of the features requested made it into the update. Getting the update will give players the option of playing with the fully-implemented Classic AP system that matches the board game AP system, as well as wonderfully-detailed 2D board game-style maps in very high resolution to complete the experience! Unit counters also received a resolution upgrade, becoming even more visible and showing dynamic stats through each match!

Basic campaign support is also present in the v1.14 update, allowing players through new custom campaigns to advance all surviving units between multiple firefights, gaining critical experience. A new line of sight tool was also added to aid for those wanting to check if they have the ever-important shot on the rear of lumbering Russian tank. For those that like to challenge human opponents, improved multiplayer support is available as well through better version checking and the ability to set game options while in the lobby.

The v1.14 update is comprehensive and will bring all versions of Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear! to v1.14. To download the update, players can run “Check for Update” via the game menu or on the download page. The demo is also available on the download page as well. Read the changelog on the Matrix Games forums!
