Back to News Listing Decisive Campaigns: The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris Gets an Update

Posted: Monday, January 17, 2011 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

Another update to this popular early war strategy game is smashing into the front lines!

Matrix Games and VR Designs (www.vrdesigns.nl) are proud to announce the release of another free update for their WWII strategy game, Decisive Campaigns: The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris. The comprehensive 1.04 update comes with some tweaks and changes like an improvement in scenario load times and status messages during game loading. The update also includes a tweak that gives details on structural damage to bridges and fortifications, a fix for a ZOC bug after Belgium and Netherlands surrender, and some other rare bugs fixes.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Decisive Campaigns: The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris is a great system to show the strategic and operational choices facing the commanders on all sides of the early phases of the Second World War. This update helps improve the overall experience to make sure that everything from the invasion to Poland to Operation Sea Lion runs smoothly!”

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. The update is comprehensive and brings all previous versions of Decisive Campaigns to version 1.04d. Get more information on Decisive Campaigns: The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris from its official product page.

Speed and surprise are key success factors that armchair generals will have to master to seize Warsaw, Paris, and London … or the German troops will be sent packing back to Berlin!
