Back to News Listing Scourge of War: Chancellorsville Arrives on the Battlefield!

Posted: Tuesday, November 06, 2012 by Scott Parrino

Type: Press Release

 

Matrix Games, Slitherine (www.slitherine.com), and NorbSoftDev (www.norbsoftdev.com) are proud to announce the release of the American Civil War real-time tactical strategy game Scourge of War: Chancellorsville! The latest in the Scourge of War series, Chancellorsville is its own full stand-alone title and focuses on one of the most important battles in the lead-up to the battle at Gettysburg.

In Scourge of War: Chancellorsville, players take command of either the Confederate or Union forces during the Battle of Chancellorsville in May of 1863. Commanding troops in real-time tactical pausable combat, players can fight 20 single-player scenarios across three highly-detailed and historically accurate maps, complete with realistic weather and even during the night. Like all titles in the Scourge of War series, Chancellorsville features an extensively-researched historical Order of Battle with authentic leader ratings, authentic units and weapon ratings and specifications, and genuine sounds and smoke effects to bring the battlefield to life.

Scourge of War: Chancellorsville comes with the versatile Sandbox Battle feature and random play mode, allowing players to create endless variations of battles on the maps. For those wanting to engage in combat with or against their fellow man, players can go online with up to 32 players in six multiplayer scenarios with the new routing server for smooth and flawless gameplay.

The Battle of Chancellorsville began with the Union Army’s attempt to march on Richmond to end the war, and ended with General Robert E. Lee’s routing of Union forces. Can you match Lee’s “Perfect Battle” or change the fortunes of the Union Army and defeat the Confederate Army?

For more information and to purchase Scourge of War: Chancellorsville, visit the official product pages on the Matrix Games or Slitherine website. Please note that you will be able to play the Scourge of War expansions Pipe Creek and Antietam with Chancellorsville in the future, but this initial release does not allow these expansions to be played and you must own Gettysburg to do so.

To End All Wars is now available!

“This war, like the next war, is a war to end war.” (David Lloyd George – UK Prime Minister)

One hundred years ago today, Russian and German forces were standing facing each other in East Prussia. This early confrontation on the Eastern Front – known as the Battle of Tannenberg - resulted in the almost complete destruction of the Russian Second Army and the suicide of their main commander, Samsonov. On the German side the battle made Paul von Hindenburg famous for the rest of the war, and proved that moving troops quickly by train could bring a decisive advantage. Technology was an asset that could make all the difference in the years to come…
