Post by Daniele »

Gary Grigsby’s War in the West, the most ambitious and detailed computer wargame on the Western Front of World War II ever made, has finally been released on Steam!

Join the fight and lead your troops to victory with this incredibly detailed simulation. Each squad and vehicle will be under your command, waiting for your orders, in a huge 36k hex map with a comprehensive new air game that will allow you to control the skies above the battleground.

While your troops bring chaos and destruction on the field, you will also have to make plans for the logistic side of the battle, including rail usage, depots, trucks, ports and realistic interdictions.

Improve your World War II experience with the expansion “Operation Torch”, that introduces 10 new challenging scenarios, including both historical and what-if operations like the "Battle for Tunisia", "Operation Dragoon" and "Breach of the Gothic Line".

So, are you ready to show what you got on the battlefield? Grab Gary Grigsby’s War in the West on Steam now!
Do you think you are not tough enough for this? Then watch the tutorials we just made for new players! They’ll guide you and teach you the core mechanics of the game.

Awesome!

Is it possible for people who've already purchased WitW in the past here on the Matrix site to redeem a Steam key for it as well, as was the case with War in the East?

This is fantastic. I just got my Steam key from the Slitherine site. I love having the game on Steam. (Also answering the question above.)

Absolutely, all existing customers get a Steam key for free. That applies to all our games. If you purchase them from us and they are also released (or later released) on Steam, you can get a free Steam key.

It's worth noting that in conjunction with the Steam release, War in the West is temporarily on sale in our store as well. You can get it for $49.99 instead of $79.99 for a limited time!

Also, if you already own War in the West and get your free Steam Key, please post a review on Steam! It helps us reach out to the Steam audience and inform them of the quality of the game.

I notice for WitW there is no beta path like there is for WitE.
Was this an oversight and will it be added later or was this intentional?

I prefer to have the game on Steam since I don't have to mess with serial codes or keep up with the installation file. But I would like to keep up with the latest betas and WiTE on Steam lets me do that.
Can we get this with WitW?

There's currently no public Beta available but I'm sure a Beta channel will be offered at Steam once a public beta is released.

We expect the next public beta to go out late this month or early September. When it does, it will be available on Steam and through Matrix as usual.

A few of the Matrix/Slitherine games use serial codes that are identical to their Steam keys. I think this might be one of them.

thank you

However it didn't work.
First it said that I must register (but I already did when I first got the game).
Then when I entered the key, it said it was already used (true, see above).

Oh well, the only thing steam does is automatically update and I can always do that manually

Thanks anyway

Keep in mind Steam has "bundle" sales that stack with Matrix sales.
