you can set it up that way, same as in WiTE1. Needs a degree of team management, see the AARs in this forum. The basic design is for 2 players

Maybe it's already been asked, but: will the weekly turns be synchronized with the same weekly turns of GG-WitW (in term of starting day of the turn), so that with two displays the two Grand Campaigns (GGWitW from 07/1943 or from Torch with the DLC) can be played together in parallel?

How about an update?

Are we on track for release this year?

Hi Wild, hopefully you'll get a Dev response but I think going off what the last update was saying and the lack of subsequent 'publicity' we are looking at release in 2021.

I'm sure it will be worth the wait

That was my thinking as well. The complete lack of publicity had me worried.

When are you going to let one or more of the Beta testers post an AAR?
It could be some consolation for waiting on the release.

Gents, I think we are looking like it will be 2021 sometime, as we are about out of time for 2020 and Matrix has nothing about this "coming soon".

As a strictly WitE player, is there anything in the WitW manual that would be beneficial to read to get a head start on understanding WitE2? Anything that is largely unchanged?

Read about the depots. Logistics is a big part of WITE 2.0

I understand there will (finally!) be a War in the East 2 game. Can I have Rommel command a Panzergruppe on June 22 1941? Will it include the Soviet Putilov Stal-5 flying wing transport? Is there an option to form a panzer division using the
Panzer VIII Maus tank? Can the Soviet player order Banzai attacks by out-of-supply units?

The game is absolutely worthless if it doesn't have all of these.

I'm really looking forward to War in the East 3, in about 2030.

there is nothing that is unchanged from WiTW but logistics (as above) and the broad outlines of the air war are both totally different to WiTE1 and use the broad concepts from WiTW. Also the concept of multi-role units (usually brigades that can be on map as a combat unit or off map as a support unit).

The WItE2 manual has several pages of major changes between WiTW and WiTE2 which may indicate how much has differed (its also got a section on some the more important shifts from WiTE1 to help orientate players making the transfer)

Hi everyone,

Development on WITE2 is going very well, we are in a late beta stage and it's shaping up to be great wargame. It's been a much bigger endeavour than WITW was compared to WITE. We'll be able to share a lot more with you all, including a release timeframe, during December. Stay tuned and you'll know much more in the near future.

Regards,

- Erik

Considering the (huge) gap between WitE and WitW, I really wonder what you are up to...

Great news !

Since we will be waiting until next month for more information on WITE2, I was wondering if at least you guys can wet our appetite and let us know what campaigns and scenario's will be in the new upcoming game?
