There’s never been a better time to pick up a masterpiece of wargaming from Panther Games! 

Matrix Games and Panther Games (www.panthergames.com) are thrilled to announce a $10 discount for both Highway to the Reich and Conquest of the Aegean! Now Highway to the Reich will cost only $29.99 for a Digital Download, reduced from its original $39.99 download price. Similarly, Conquest of the Aegean will now only be $39.99 for a Digital Download, reduced from $49.99.

Act fast, however, because this sale will only last until the final moment of 2007. On December 31st at midnight EST, the price of both games will rise to an additional $10 over their pre-sale price, making Highway to the Reich $49.99 and Conquest of the Aegean $59.99. So in short, there’s never been a better time to buy Highway to the Reich and Conquest of the Aegean!

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said, “Both of these exceptional wargames from Panther Games are hits with critics and gamers alike. This sale is a fantastic opportunity for anyone who has not yet been wholly addicted to the Airborne Assault engine’s fantastic realism and innovative gameplay to come see what they’re missing.”

 

In Highway to the Reich you learn to command like a true General to achieve real objectives on a historical map all while trying to see through the fog of war. Highway to the Reich combines pausable continuous-time game play, the most advanced artificial intelligence of any wargame, a powerful and intuitive user interface, and a unique command system to create the one of the most realistic and enjoyable simulations of operational warfare. Use the realistic chain of command to issue orders to your intelligent AI-controlled subordinates or take total control of every unit yourself.  Lead Parachute Regiments in daring assaults to seize vital bridges, send mighty Armored Divisions into the attack and wield an entire Corps in a race against time. Reshape history in one of the many historical battles covering all major actions of the Market Garden operation or salvage victory from disaster in one of the hypothetical "what-if" encounters.

 

Conquest of the Aegean is the next generation of the award-winning and revolutionary Airborne Assault series and it takes brigade to corps-level warfare to a whole new level.  Realism and accuracy are the watchwords as this pausable continuous-time design allows you to command at any echelon, with smart AI subordinates and an incredibly challenging AI. Conquest of the Aegean takes you to the early years of World War II, to fight over the ancient battlefields of Greece, Crete and even Malta.  In the shadows of Mount Olympus in Greece, Allied forces struggle to halt the blitzkrieg German advance.  On Crete, beleaguered German paratroopers fight to hold Maleme airfield until reinforcements can arrive.  Malta, long a thorn in the side of the Axis, is finally tested against invasion in two hypothetical scenarios.

Panzer Corps: Operation Sea Lion announced!

Panzer Corps: Operation Sea Lion announced!

“[However] a German invasion of England would be a matter of life and death for the British, and they would unhesitatingly commit their naval forces, to the last ship and the last man, into an all-out fight for survival”  Erich Raeder, commander-in-chief of the Kriegsmarine 

Great Britain, the propulsive core of the British Empire, is surrounded. After the fall of Scandinavia and France only a few miles of sea divide the land of Albion from the Reich. It’s only thanks to the Home Fleet and to the Royal Air Force that the Germans are not yet raising their flag on the Big Ben.

But for how long?

Pike and Shot: Campaigns announced!

Monday, July 20, 2015

Never do any enemy a small injury for they are like a snake which is half beaten and it will strike back the first chance it gets.” – Niccolò Machiavelli

Boots are pounding the ground for days. Dirty and grimy soldiers are marching in the ranks with the sergeants trying (mostly in vain) to keep them disciplined.

Too many days have passed since the last plundered town and now food is starting to run out. The men are nervous.

Suddenly a cry from the head of the column. Scouting cavalry have spotted enemy heavy pikemen formations supported by artillery.

It is time to spill some blood!

Pike and Shot: Campaigns is a brand new all-in-one package. It includes the Pike and Shot base game and the Tercio to Salvo expansion, plus 21 new skirmish army lists for the rest of Europe during the period of the Italian Wars (1494-1559) covering the armies of England, Scotland, Denmark, Sweden, German States, Austria, Hungary, Transylvania, the Ottoman Empire, Poland-Lithuania and Russia!

But the main new feature is the strategic map system, implemented to allow you to lead your armies to victory over an entire theatre of operations, taking into account strategic considerations such as terrain, available manpower, supply, attrition, sieges and economic damage.
