Woodbridge, NJ, July 24th, 2003 - Matrix Games (http://www.matrixgames.com), Tri-Synergy (http://www.trisynergy.com) and Wargaming.net (http://www.wargaming.net) are pleased to announce a partnership to publish and distribute the new strategy game Massive Assault.

“Wargaming.net have produced a challenging and addictive futuristic 3D strategy game in their new title Massive Assault. To gamers familiar with their excellent work on DBA Online, the quality of this title should come as no surprise. We are delighted to have been selected to work with the Wargaming.net team as their exclusive distributors in North America for this exciting new release.” said David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games.

Winning will not be easy as the AI will make you pay dearly for any tactical or strategic mistake. Massive Assault contains an original political system, preserving intrigue throughout each scenario, campaign or war. Each side has allied countries, unknown to the enemy. Secret allies can disclose and provide troops at any moment, surprisingly shifting the power balance in a particular region. The secret alliance concept provides endless replayability as well as increased excitement. In each game, the distribution of secret allies is totally different, which serves to create unique strategic situations. In order to win, you will have to employ the eternal principles of warfare, such as:

  • Using terrain to your advantage
  • Practicing flanking and enveloping maneuvers
  • Concentrating troops at the right place and time for maximum advantage
  • Cutting enemy supply routes
  • Performing screening maneuvers
  • Using guerrilla tactics and sabotage

Units include a variety of ground forces, ranging from reconnaissance to heavy mechs; air forces, and naval forces, including carriers, destroyers, amphibians and battleships. When liberating the continents, you will learn to coordinate huge naval landing operations, involving carrier battle groups, naval bombardments and air power. These and other challenges await you in Massive Assault!

Massive Assault features include:

  • Original political system based on "Secret Allies" provides endless replayability
  • Smooth and Dynamic Gameplay
  • Full 3D Graphic Engine
  • Huge 3D Landscapes
  • 26 Detailed 3D Units
  • Realistic Lighting, Explosions and Effects
  • 3D Sound
  • 6 Different Worlds (planets)

So long as the opposing forces are at the outset approximately equal in numbers and moral and there are no flanks to turn, a long struggle for supremacy is inevitable” (General Sir Douglas Haig - British commander)

Praised for its historical accuracy and its capacity to properly cover a huge conflict that involved thousands of men and units, Ageod’s WW1 wargame, To End All Wars, amazed history buffs last summer. However, the huge scale of the Grand Campaign was demanding a lot of time and a deep involvement from the players. So the developers went back to the WW1 battlefields and selected a list of smaller scenarios able to not only offer an original approach of the war, but also to provide true tactical operational challenges to their fans!
