Back to News Listing Germany at War: Barbarossa 1941 Released!

Posted: Thursday, July 25, 2013 by Filippo Chianetta

Type: Press Release

 

Matrix Games and Phobetor are proud to announce the release of Germany at War: Barbarossa 1941, a new introductory turn-based operational wargame.

This new title is an exciting addition for turn-based strategy gamers as it features gameplay in the style of Panzer General and Panzer Corps, with a branching, event-filled campaign that takes you from the start of Operation Barbarossa towards the historical goals of Archangel or Astrakhan.  Follow each Army Group through its initial battles, build up a core force, then decide which front will have the main focus, North, Center or South.  Your decisions and outcomes determine the course of the campaign, which is designed with replayability in mind.

Germany at War: Barbarossa 1941 is more historically focused than similar games, with an emphasis on historical units and attachments and consistent modeling of unit and hex scale, but is still a fun and easy to learn wargame. For players of Panzer Corps and Panzer General, Germany at War is a logical next step in the wargaming genre.

With 4 Campaigns, including 37 scenarios in the main campaign, 14 stand-alone scenarios and an editor with which to add new mission, multiplayer PBEM++ support and good graphics, this game is an exciting new milestone for gamers who enjoy Panzer Corps and similar games.
 

We are also releasing the at release v.1.0.55 update for the game to address a few issues that came up in testing the gold master version. It fixes a rare crash, adjusts the equipment for some of the divisions and adds a new cursors for different dpi settings.

For the complete list of changes, visit the dedicated Forum Page.

To download the update, players can run “Check for Update” via the game menu or download it directly from the game’s download page.
