Scramble the Spitfires! A hard hitting action/strategy blend is in the skies and on its way

Matrix Games and Shockwave Productions (www.shockwaveproductions.com) are proud to announce that Battle of Britain II – Wings of Victory, the popular blend of air power strategy and 1st person World War II flight combat, is now available for purchase from the Matrix Games Online Store. Battle of Britain II – Wings of Victory gives gamers the chance to decide strategy as the Air Commander or sit in the cockpit of any of the most popular aircraft of World War II and take to the skies over Great Britain and the English Channel.

Battle of Britain – Wings of Victory is a strategy/action classic which has received acclaim from reviewers and gamers since its original release.  GameSpot gave it an 8.4 rating and called it “… the ultimate combination of a strategy game and a hard-core simulation." Available now as a fully updated v2.06 release from Matrix Games, Battle of Britain – Wings of Victory is not an experience to be missed!


Players can fight every battle first hand or watch the action from afar and dictate the battle strategy to try to best their opponent with strategic insight and intelligence rather than quick reflexes and guts. Overall, Battle of Britain – Wings of Victory offers gamers a fantastic and unique blend of intense action with considerable historical accuracy and an addicting strategic campaign so players can re-fight the famous and desperate air war for Great Britain the way they want to!


David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Battle of Britain II – Wings of Victory packs a spectacular one-two punch as players can fight the air war over British skies almost any way they like and choose their own level of involvement. Whether you’re a hardcore strategy gamer or an action junky looking for some good historical air combat, this game will deliver.”


Each plane, factory, airfield, and radar station has a specific purpose and effect on the progress of the war and when these are targeted by each side, the course of the war can change.  As the campaign for air superiority plays out, you can watch flights from both sides carrying out their assigned daily missions.


If you prefer the tactical to the strategic, you can leave the map view of the air commander and jump into the cockpit of the British Hurricane, Spitfire, German Messerschmitt, Stuka dive bomber, or man the gun stations of the Dornier Do17, Heinkel He111, and Ju-88 level bombers. As a pilot, your focus is limited to your mission - destroy the enemy and get you and your mates home alive.  Test your skills in this fierce battle - will you become an ace or just a statistic?


Whatever your choice, you will face missions against relentless waves of enemy aircraft and find yourself part of the most authentic historical re-creation of these amazing battles to date.  Strap yourself in for the fight of your life!


Please note that Battle of Britain – Wings of Victory is only available for sale in North America via the Matrix Games Online Store due to contractual limitations.

The Balfour Declaration, November 2nd 1917

Never a wargame has depicted in such fine detail one the most controversial parts of contemporary history. The proclamation of the Israeli state in 1948 and the US recognizing the state in that exact same day, opens up over four decades of conflicts, key battles, struggles and hostilities. This was also the time of landmark progression and evolution of tactics and weapons systems, where the weapons of NATO and the WARSAW PACT were tested on the battlefields.
