Back to News Listing Major New Update for World War I: La Grande Guerre

Posted: Thursday, April 09, 2009 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

The 1.06d includes dozens of fixes and improvements to add more shine to the muddy trenches!

Matrix Games and AGEOD (www.ageod.com) are pleased to release the new comprehensive 1.06d update for World War One: La Grande Guerre. The v1.06d update includes many crash fixes and scenario tweaks, some balance changes, and improvements to the rules for rail systems.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “World War One: La Grande Guerre has come a long way since its initial release. World War One is a well designed combination of innovative strategy played out on the canvas of a massive conflict that is often overlooked in the wargaming genre.”

 

As Europe mobilized in August 1914, both sides of what would be called World War I chanted “Home before the leaves fall!’’ Four long and bloody years later Europe lay in ruins and many once-enthusiastic patriots returned home disenchanted and broken ... Will YOU be able to prevent that outcome?

 

Take charge as a military and political leader during the most trying and critical times of World War One!  As either a member of the Central Powers, the Entente or a neutral nation, you will confront the epic gauntlet of challenges that faced the likes of Kitchener, Joffre, Luddendorf, Clemenceau, Czar Nicholas II or Enver Pasha in scenarios that range from single theatres to the entire grand campaign.

 

Gaze over an incredibly detailed, beautifully crafted, and massive WWI map as you control dozens of different ground units, planes, and ships. To add further flavor to an already chaotic and intense period of conflict, hundreds of military, economic, political and technological events can help turn the tide of war for or against you. Deftly craft new alliances and jockey for any advantage that can break the deadlock by using ambassadors in an innovative and intuitive diplomacy system.

 

Get the update here. This update is comprehensive and will bring any previous version of World War One: La Grande Guerre to version 1.06d.
