Published on December 04, 2014

Renowned developer 2by3 Games has used all its talent and experience to create a deep historical simulation with an incredible level of realism. Order of Battle, logistics, air war, weather, terrain features… all of the ingredients that made this front unique are included in this wargame, and players can dig into all the details to make their plans come together. To help you get up to speed, five video tutorials and a Player’s Handbook along with introductory scenarios complement the full game manual and grand campaigns. Defeating the German army or defending the Atlantic Wall is a very challenging task, and both players and AI have multiple assets and possibilities to rewrite history… forever!

It has always been a pleasure and an honor to work together with Gary and Joel and the entire 2by3 Games team.  They have surpassed themselves with War in the West, which gives wargamers what is by far the best rendition to date of the entire Western Front from 1943 on, with all the strategic decisions that entails for either side.  This is a game that rich with history, deep in strategy, keeps both sides guessing and never plays the same way twice!”, said Erik Rutins, Director of Product Development at Matrix Games.

The game features 3 main campaigns and 7 smaller scenarios for a comprehensive coverage of combat in Western Europe between July 1943 and mid 1945:

  • 1943 Campaign - 109 turns
  • 1944 Campaign (May Start) – 64 turns
  • 1944 Campaign (D-Day Start) – 62 turns
  • Air Campaign – 4 turns
  • Operation Husky – 7 turns
  • Salerno to Rome 43-44 (starting with Operation Avalanche)– 42 turns/multiplayer only
  • Battleground Italy – 95 turns
  • Breakout and Pursuit (starting with Operation Cobra) – 11 turns
  • Westwall (starting with Operation Market Garden) – 12 turns
  • Bulge to the Rhine (starting with The Battle of the Bulge) –12 turns

Today we are very excited to announced that the game is finally available on the Matrix Games Online Store! Such a game deserved a special treatment in terms of packaging so connoisseurs of beautiful objects will be pleased to know that the physical edition of the game comes with an impressive hardbound color printed manual of more than 300 pages!

For holiday shoppers, please note that we expect the physical copies to start shipping out on December 16th.
