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

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.

Command LIVE: You Brexit, You Fix it!

Tuesday, July 26, 2016

Is there anything that seems more crucial in recent European history than the possibility of Great Britain leaving the European Union?

Probably not, because it’s really too early to say what the likely outcomes are for the near future. Nevertheless, many military observers seem pretty much convinced that this event could make NATO, the main western collective defensive system, weaker and less effective: What if other countries decide to follow the British example and like in a domino effect, the internal cohesion and cooperation of the European nations is diminished as a consequence?
