Back to News Listing Sign of for the Pike and Shot Beta!

Posted: Wednesday, July 23, 2014 by Bart Schouten

Type: News

It was at our annual Home of Wargamers event earlier this year that we surprised press and public alike with the announcement of Pike and Shot, a brand new game developed by  Byzantine Games and The Lordz Games Studio, set during the 30th Years War. With the game releasing later this year, the time has come to invite all those who are willing and able, to sign up for the beta test of this unique strategy game! By signing up for the beta, you will have a chance to experience the game before release and to help us eradicate those pesky bugs and balancing issues. 

In the age of Pike and Shot, mighty struggles erupted across Europe for causes religious, political or dynastic. The Thirty Years War raged across Germany and beyond, leaving devastation in its wake, but saw the rise of great commanders such as Count Tilly, Wallenstein and King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden, and rapid developments in battlefield tactics.  Musketeers “gave fire” in a duel to the death, pikeman held stolidly against enemy assaults, and cavalry charged to glory or defeat. You can take command in the greatest historical battles of the war, fight stand-alone “what-if” scenarios, or design your own scenarios using the easy to use editor.

War in the West: Operation Torch gets a release date!

Thursday, August 27, 2015

Gary Grigsby’s War in the West is unprecedented in its historical depth, detail and scope among computer wargames that depict the entire Western Front of World War II both on land and in the air.  War in the West is a “monster game” by any measure, but retains the ease of play that made its predecessor, War in the East, a classic.

Nevertheless, 2by3 Games has not been resting on their laurels. The team was eager to add more material and many improvements to the game. The result of all these efforts is Operation Torch, a stunning expansion that covers not only the eponymous operation by the combined forces of the Western Allies against the Afrika Korps after El Alamein, but also much more!
