Defeat the Axis Menace! Epic battles across massive maps are now rolling onto hard drives everywhere!

Matrix Games and GFI (www.gfi.su) are thrilled to announce that Officers – The Matrix Edition is now available for purchase!

 

Officers – The Matrix Edition puts you in command of the Allied forces in the largest conflict of our time. Take control of the US and British armies in order to strike back and defeat the Axis menace on the Western front of Europe. With over 1500 units on maps up to 10 square miles, Officers is the first WWII real time strategy game to let you fight on a truly massive scale. Historical battles like Operation Overlord, Millennium, and Cobra will put your tactical skills to the test using combined forces from infantry and engineers to tanks, artillery and bombers.  Recommended for all gamers, the fun historical gameplay of Officers – The Matrix Edition will bring a smile to new strategy gamers and veteran wargamers alike.

 

Gamers can now enjoy an enhanced Officers experience with a game The Wargamer acclaims as “massive real time strategy action and huge battles.” The various improvements and changes to the game that are only available with The Matrix Edition include:

 

  • Better campaign difficulty balance especially on “Easy” and “Normal”
  • An improved and expanded manual
  • Improvements to unit pathfinding for both friendly and enemy AI
  • Many map tweaks and changes which fix problems with units drowning themselves when ordered to cross a river or other body of water
  • A number of additional bug and stability fixes

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Our enhanced release of Officers lets you experience the true scale of World War II with tons of units and massive maps.  There’s a huge amount of gameplay here and the historical setting makes for a great strategy game and an enjoyable experience.  Watching battles of this scale unfold with fantastic graphics and an intuitive interface makes for a unique, and fun, experience.”

 

Blazing speed and blunt force will only secure victory if you extend your supply lines and capture enemy weaponry and warehouses. Take the high ground and use terrain to your advantage with fully realistic physics and ballistics – only sound tactical maneuver will keep your men alive!

 

Features include:

 

  • Lead the Allied forces across gigantic battlegrounds up to 10 square miles
  • Control over 50 authentic infantry, armor, artillery and aircraft units
