The second part of the AAR of Order of Battle Pacific is out!

Posted: Tuesday, April 07, 2015 by Daniele Meneghini

“I said, to the people of the Philippines whence I came, I shall return!” (General Douglas MacArthur)

As promised here’s the second part of the great AAR of Order of Battle: Pacific!

We have left our heroic defenders while they were trying to hold the line against the Japanese invasion force.

They fought bravery inflicting heavy losses to the enemy, but he still has numerical superiority and reinforcements are on the way. Conversely, for the allies every unit lost was a severe wound blow to their defensive plan. 

Will Dave and Lukas be able to prevent the fall of the Philippines, or will they only be remembered for their failure?

Be prepared to see a lot of artillery strikes, hazardous flanking manoeuvres and gallant actions!

War in the West Update to V. 1.00.21 and Operation Torch Beta announced!

Posted: Monday, March 23, 2015 by Test Test

“The enemy must be annihilated before he reaches our main battlefield. We must stop him in the water, destroying all his equipment while it is still afloat!”(1944 - Erwin Rommel)

The definitive wargame of the Western Front is updated to version 1.00.21! New contents and features are now fully integrated to give the game a more detailed perspective. For instance Italian reinforcements are now allowed prior to July 43 (in the past they were not allowed until after Italy had surrendered) and with this version it’s more difficult to reach very high interdiction values.

The list is very long, so be sure to check the full changelog here.

The patch can be downloaded here

But this time the good news is not finished, because alongside the update we are very happy to announce that an expansion of the base game focused on the attempts of the Allies to open a second front in Europe prior to Overlord is now ready to enter the beta phase! And we ask players to help us test it by enlisting for the beta here
