Back to News Listing Tin Soldiers: Julius Caesar Updated to v1.11

Posted: Saturday, June 25, 2005 by Matrix Support

Type: Update

Crash Fix and Backwards Compatibility Upgrade

Matrix Games is pleased to announce that Koios Works’ (www.koiosworks.com) latest title in the Tin Soldiers series, Julius Caesar has been updated to version 1.11.

This incremental update fixes a crash bug involving retreating armies and makes the game backwards compatible with any minor revisions.  This means players with version 1.11 can play multiplayer against people who have version 1.10.  It does not include the ability for v1.11 players to play against v1.00 owners and requires that v1.10 already be installed before updating.  All Tin Soldiers: Julius Caesar updates can be downloaded from the Matrix Games website at www.matrixgames.com.

 

Tin Soldiers:  Julius Caesar brings a completely new 3D engine into the battle, allowing users to zoom in, out, and rotate the map for a better view of the battlefield.  The artwork overhaul features over 100 different replicas of hand-painted miniatures, including the fearsome legions of Caesar himself.  On the inside of the game the AI has been overhauled as well to support a variety of battle formations while the legions of Caesar have been expanded from the normal block of four units to a more powerful block of six.  This allows you to replicate the power and strength the Roman legions possessed.

 

The campaign mode features two distinct campaigns that no longer occur in linear order.  You must defeat the Gaelic campaign and the final showdown against the combined forces of Gaul at Alesia and then proceed to the Roman civil war, where you will conquer Rome itself.  By keeping many of the aspects that made Tin Soldiers:  Alexander the Great popular and improving it in many areas; Tin Soldiers:  Julius Caesar will be appealing to both existing fans and newcomers alike.

Zeus, father of the Olympians, made night from mid-day, hiding the light of the shining Sun, and sore fear came upon men.” (Archilochus)

The enemy is at the gate. It is a question of life and death.” (Andrei Zhdanov – Soviet Politician)

June 22, 1941 – German troops cross the border in Soviet-occupied Poland and break instantly the Non-Aggression pact between Germany and the USSR. This brutal and massive operation opened a huge new front in Europe. While the initial advance was fast and surprising enough to make the Germans reach the gates of Moscow, the invaders quickly had to deal with a valiant resistance from the Red Army and endure the tough weather and terrain conditions. Soon the Eastern Front became the ruthless and the bloodiest front of the whole war…
