Back to News Listing John Tiller’s Campaign Series Gets a Mega Update!

Posted: Thursday, July 10, 2008 by Sean Drummy

Type: Update

A positively huge update now available for the WWII turn-based wargaming classic

Matrix Games and Campaign Series Legion are thrilled to announce the release of a major new update for the acclaimed WWII tactical turn-based hit, John Tiller’s Campaign Series. This comprehensive 1.03 brings many fixes and manual additions along with far too many improvements and new features to be listed here. A full change list is available in this forum post.

 

The update addresses many longstanding community issues especially dealing with the dynamic campaign feature and the “Cave bug” found in Rising Sun. A few of the many new notable features include 16 new scenarios to West Front, 8 new scenarios to East Front, varying visibility factors (including night and day operations), massive OOB expansions and revisions, new units for the US Army, Germans, and Soviets, and new engineer capabilities (bridging, mining, construction). Also included are new, more realistic assault rules. The update is quite large (214MB) and it is recommended that all Campaign Series owners install this great new update.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Many issues and problems that have pestered the community since Talonsoft release the game have been addressed and it’s truly gratifying to see such a great game get that much better!”

 

The John Tiller's Campaign Series compilation exemplifies tactical war-gaming at its finest by bringing you the entire collection of TalonSoft's award-winning campaign series. Containing TalonSoft's West Front, East Front, and Rising Sun platoon-level combat series, as well as all of the official add-ons and expansion packs, the Matrix Edition allows players to dictate the events of World War II from the tumultuous beginning to its climatic conclusion.

 

Reinforce your countrymen at the Western Front. Swarm Japanese strongholds on your way to their homeland. Crush the enemy on the Eastern Front. Protect the U.S. coast from Japanese invasion. March into Germany standing victorious with your allies. This exclusive compilation proudly offers more than 350 scenarios, fought by more than 35 countries stretching from France to the American coast.

 

Get the update here. This update is comprehensive and will bring the game up to version 1.03.
