Slitherine starts designing its military hardware

Wednesday, April 01, 2015

The wargaming veterans over at the Slitherine Group announced today that there business will be expanded in a completely new direction. Having tons of experience with simulating wars in the digital realm, the men and women of the group have gained lots of knowledge and know-how on advanced weapon systems and military hardware. As such, Slitherine Group Chairman JD McNeil announced that a new company branch will be opened, focussing on the research, development and production of new, real world, weapon systems.

JD explains: “Having developed digital combat simulations set in all different times, we have gained a lot of insight on the weapon systems used, the comparisons between them and the development cycles of the different types of military hardware. It was when we worked together on several modern warfare titles that we looked at these weapons and thought: We can do better!”

Rumours were already in the air regarding this new step for the Slitherine Group, with several journalists spotting key company members in the international arms fair in Saudi-Arabia earlier this year.

“Don’t get me wrong. ” Said JD McNeil: “We will continue to develop serious wargames, as that is where our passion lies and our core audience can be found. But developing and selling actual military hardware will allow us to generate a bigger income which we can then invest into making better and more accurate games.”

War in the West Update to V. 1.00.21 and Operation Torch Beta announced!

Monday, March 23, 2015

“The enemy must be annihilated before he reaches our main battlefield. We must stop him in the water, destroying all his equipment while it is still afloat!”(1944 - Erwin Rommel)

The definitive wargame of the Western Front is updated to version 1.00.21! New contents and features are now fully integrated to give the game a more detailed perspective. For instance Italian reinforcements are now allowed prior to July 43 (in the past they were not allowed until after Italy had surrendered) and with this version it’s more difficult to reach very high interdiction values.

The list is very long, so be sure to check the full changelog here.

The patch can be downloaded here

But this time the good news is not finished, because alongside the update we are very happy to announce that an expansion of the base game focused on the attempts of the Allies to open a second front in Europe prior to Overlord is now ready to enter the beta phase! And we ask players to help us test it by enlisting for the beta here

Order of Battle: Pacific gets an After Action Report!

Friday, March 20, 2015

Good news soldiers!

As the release date is approaching, we think it’s high time to share more visuals and information about Order of Battle: Pacific. There’s no better way than a comprehensive AAR to delve into details and see what the game can really offer. That is why Lukas (game designer) and Dave (AI programmer) work hand in hand during 20 turns in the sultry Philippines against a very capable Japanese AI!

We are in December 1941 and the Japanese army is starting its invasion of the Philippines.  Only few US units are available in this sector and have no chance of repelling the enemy. However, they can surely delay them. And the longer they resist, the better the US army will be able to strike back! But will Dave and Lukas cooperate effectively during 20 stressful turns?
