Back to News Listing Matrix Games Updates Battlefront from SSG

Posted: Wednesday, April 11, 2007 by Matrix Support

Type: Update

The first update for SSG’s battalion-level strategy title has been green-lighted and is parachuting to a hard drive near you 

Matrix Games and SSG (www.ssg.com.au) are proud to announce the release of an update for Battlefront. This first update file will improve on the already rock solid gameplay that comes with this World War II turn-based hit! The changes and improvements number just under a dozen and will give gamers an even smoother and more enjoyable wargaming experience.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Battlefront comes ready to storm your hard drive and capture hours of your time right out of the box with its unique and innovative gameplay. Now with this new update, gamers will see SSG build off of their initial success to push Battlefront ever closer to the classic wargame status it no doubt will achieve.”

 

With an interface and engine based off of the award-winning Decisive Battles of World War II series, Battlefront brings battalion-level combat to new levels of accuracy and playability. Featuring some of the Second World War’s most intense conflicts like Saipan, Market Garden, Novorossisk, and Gazala, players will have realistic control over their soldiers, with a tactical scale just large enough to make a telling difference in the strategic picture. This level of play gives the player a chance to experience true issues of command, control, sighting, and supply at a level that emphasizes plenty of tough but enjoyable decisions to make.

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened. He will fight savagely.” (Dwight D. Eisenhower – Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe)

June 1944 – The Axis is retreating on all fronts. The German army does not have the strategic initiative anymore and is trying to strengthen its defensive lines in order to stop the progress of Russian forces on the Eastern Front, and to prevent any landing from the Allied forces in the West. The Atlantic Wall seems unbreakable but rumors about a possible seaborne invasion in the north of France puts the German commanders under pressure. And suddenly, on June the 6th, the Allied forces launch one of the most audacious operations of the whole war. The world’s destiny is a stake on the Normandy beaches…

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 world of Pandora, mankind’s new hope, was already a dangerous place for the human colonists.

As the sun grows dark, a new enemy species reaches the surface of this hostile world, rising up from the depths of Pandora and a new human faction joins the competition for the planet’s dominance.
