New Class Brings New Dangers in combat!

Matrix Games and Playnet (www.playnet.com) are pleased to announce that the first person shooter and massive multiplayer game Battleground Europe (www.battleground-europe.com) has brought a new class into the virtual battlefield; the Sniper.  This new addition comes hot on the heels of the game’s availability in North America from the Matrix Games store.

The sniper unit is armed with a historically accurate scope that modifies the standard issue rifle.  These elite troopers are fast, stealthy, and dangerously accurate.  No commander is safe from the crosshairs of a skilled sniper.  Due to their limited ammunition, the sniper unit will always be on the move to strike and return to base for re-supply.

 

The full release in North America provides the latest version and goodies that were included in the European release last month.  Enjoy a huge variety of extras, such as a 150-page game manual in electronic form, a combat equipment guide, wallpapers, game music, comics and more! Included is a key for 30 days of FREE play- a $19.99 value!

 

The Battleground Europe world features over 600 cities and 29,000 buildings.  The zoneless map covers 350,000 Km (Over 217,000 miles) of terrain with a whopping 4,000,000 trees.  Battles can rage for days and the servers can support thousands of players online simultaneously.

 

Whether you want to be a British Sharpshooter or a German fighter-pilot, Battleground Europe has an assignment waiting for you.  Every soldier can make a visible contribution to the final shape of the battle for Europe!

 

Battleground Europe is available via the Matrix Games Online Store digital download and game on demand. Pricing is US $19.99 for the immediately available download version and US $29.99 for the boxed version.

Panzer Corps: Operation Sea Lion announced!

Wednesday, July 29, 2015

Panzer Corps: Operation Sea Lion announced!

“[However] a German invasion of England would be a matter of life and death for the British, and they would unhesitatingly commit their naval forces, to the last ship and the last man, into an all-out fight for survival”  Erich Raeder, commander-in-chief of the Kriegsmarine 

Great Britain, the propulsive core of the British Empire, is surrounded. After the fall of Scandinavia and France only a few miles of sea divide the land of Albion from the Reich. It’s only thanks to the Home Fleet and to the Royal Air Force that the Germans are not yet raising their flag on the Big Ben.

But for how long?
