Brian Kelly's new operational level, ground-centric, WEGOWW2 game WEGO World War II: Stalingrad, captures the drama of the epic German offensive to capture the industrial city of Stalingrad in the Summer of '42.



Manage "organized chaos" as units clash during simultaneous turns in which there can often only be one victor. Plan for both the known and the unknown, you will need to be thinking 3 moves ahead if you don't want your frontline to collapse.



As a ground-focused game, logistics and unit placement will play a key role, but you will also have access to air and support powers. Use these wisely, they could turn the tide of a critical engagement. You can also have the staff A.I. manage sections of the battlefield for you, assigning these support powers where they are most needed and allowing you to focus on the operational ground combat exclusively.

We are looking for Beta Testers, so if you are excited to help test and shape this new WWII experience, be sure to register your interest on our beta page here. For more information on the game, you can also check its product page here.

Looks very, very interesting. Got out Desert War and started going through the tutorial again to refresh my memory on the system, though I assume there are some changes from the Desert War system.

The WEGO system in Desert War: 1940-42 is brilliant. The AI is not very impressive however. I think of it as a great two-player game, not however, as deserving of praise as a single-player game. That said, I'm sure I'll buy this.

Desert war was good but not my cup of tea or my theatre of choice.
I thought the system was great though.
I'm Looking forward to this!

If they're just starting beta then I'll guess November 19th for release. The start of Operation Uranus.

Some questions,

The game is about the approach to the city and the battle in the city ? Is operation uranus also included ?
The game looks a lot like the 30 years ago released game " 4v4 world at war stalingrad" wich was also a wego game, does it compare and what are the main differences ?
Why is a day divided in 5 day turns and 1 night turn ? Seems rather odd thinking it plays during autumn.
Any indication on price ?

Hi, no, this game is just about the German attack on Stalingrad, so not including uranus.

I've played that old Stalingrad game all right. This one has differences, has Intel units, Partisans, Counter Air and Interdiction. Also it has Move Battles (in the old Stalingrad, attacks only happened at turn start (with the exception of Overruns) whereas in this game, you can "Move And Attack".
Also armour is handled differently, with Armour units having a Shock (odds shifts).
There are also bridges which can be destroyed and repaired, and minefields that can be breached.
There are other differences of course, but it's been so long since I played the "other" Stalingrad, I can't remember off the top of my head.

Length of day depends on the scenario. But in general, it takes longer to do things at night, so to simulate this, the night turns are longer (in hours).

No idea yet!

I have Desert War and played a number of PBEM games with friends so I am familiar with the system. One of the suggestions I made in the forum which Brian implemented in a update was to show the number of men and tanks in a unit and also in casualties. I hope that this will also be the case for Stalingrad. I like the game system but am concerned that Stalingrad was a slugfest with gains measured in yards so the game may be quite static. How about Guadalcanal for the next one? Very few games on Pacific battles compared to the number on the western and eastern fronts.

Yep, number of men/guns/tanks/planes will be in Stalingrad too.
The Game is about the German attack, so there's lots of movement, and sweeping attacks.
We've also tried to reduce the unit counter total by being able to combine units (so a regiment can be either 3 battalion counters or 1 regiment counters).

Guadalcanal would be interesting all right. Nothing decided yet! ;)

Is Java going to be required for this game like the last one? For me, I hope not.

It'll come with the game (i.e. you won't have to install it). And you won't be able to run java from the command line etc.
(i.e. Desert War had an option to 'install java' when you installed it, but Stalingrad will not).
Cheers,

Looks interesting subject/topic but 2 comments (basically complaints):
1) I was hoping we'd get smaller stacks. I don't think it's fun to play games with stacks of 5+ units to click through and try to keep track of
2) I'd like to see a bigger scope than the assault to take Stalingrad. I'd like to see the earlier battle of kharkov, the push into caucasus, soviet counter-offensive, wintergeweiter (sp?) included in the campaign.

Even an optional "what if" or 2 that adds a few more panzers to the relief or something like that would be really interesting.

ty for considering these points.
