Type: Press Release

More polish and elegance added to this brand new operational-level blast!

Matrix Games and VR Designs (www.vrdesigns.nl) are proud to release the comprehensive 1.02 update for their outstanding new WWII operational-level wargame, Decisive Campaigns: The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris. The update includes a number of minor fixes, adds a few hotkeys, makes a few additional improvements, and eliminates random variants from campaigns with historical settings.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Decisive Campaigns: The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris pulls off an exciting mix of action on the operational level while still taking into account strategic considerations with a sleek option card and event system. Gamers looking for a unique experience in Europe’s early war period need look no further – and this is just the first of a series!”

The development team behind the award-winning game Advanced Tactics: World War II is back with a new and improved game engine that focuses on the decisive early days of World War II! Decisive Campaigns: The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris is the first in an innovative series of operational World War II wargames that also include a strategic element.  The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris simulates Germany’s military successes in Poland and France in 1939 and 1940 (including also a hypothetical “Sea Lion” invasion of Great Britain if you do well enough).

Well researched and packed with depth, including detailed unit data down to the squad and vehicle level and historically realistic combined arms gameplay, The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris also features an easy-to-learn interface and a ferocious AI.  Before each campaign, players choose actions and options at a strategic level which can have far-reaching effects on how the actual battle unfolds, with many plausible hypothetical outcomes. 

Once in the battle, players move regiments and divisions, coordinate attacks and manage logistics in what we feel is the definitive game on the campaigns of the early Blitzkrieg. There are also unique actions for individual historical generals to give a particular objective or front the extra needed push to victory. Decisive Campaigns: The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris also includes a unique multiplayer feature where players can split up Axis or Allied armies between several people to add an added level of realism and cooperation!

Get the update here. This update is comprehensive and will bring any previous version of Decisive Campaigns: The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris to version 1.02.
