Achtung! Achtung! World War II turn-based excellence now deployed to the battlefield

 

Matrix Games and VR Designs (www.advancedtactics.org) are thrilled to announce that Advanced Tactics: World War II is now available for release! Now gamers can experience the addicting, versatile gameplay and powerful randomization features found in Advanced Tactics: World War II, which gives them total freedom to try any tactic or strategy to crush the enemy and includes infinite replayability.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Showcasing VR Designs’ game design talents, Advanced Tactics: World War II will give gamers a great list of scenarios from World War II as well as fictional conflicts to test their tactical mettle.  However, where I think the game really shines is in its incredible random scenario generation abilities, which offer gamers infinite tactical situations to keep them playing for hours and still coming back for more!”

 

Victor Reijkersz of VR Designs also added, “Working with Matrix Games has been great and I’m positively thrilled that Advanced Tactics: World War II is now available for purchase through the Matrix Games network. Advanced Tactics was a blast to develop and we’re ready to support and build a strong player community based on this release.”

 

Advanced Tactics is a versatile turn-based strategy system that gives gamers the chance to wage almost any battle in any time period. The first module in this series is Advanced Tactics: World War II, which allows gamers to hop into a Panzer and storm across Europe. Complete with a streamlined interface and an addicting style of gameplay, Advanced Tactics offers a unique and infinitely replayable experience for any strategy fan.  Depending on the scenario, you can decide what your towns should produce, which HQs receive reinforcements, how your chain of command is formed, what sort of troop and equipment mix you put in each unit, if you use air, land, or sea strategies or maybe even call in the paratroopers – the possibilities are endless! Almost any type of strategy or tactic can be used effectively in Advanced Tactics


To round out Advanced Tactics’ features, it also includes a very powerful scenario editor that allows gamers to recreate their favorite historical scenarios or simple fabricate their own fictional conflicts.  World War 2 buffs will enjoy Advanced Tactics’ numerous historical scenarios from the period like: Gothic Line, Afrika Korps, the Russian Front, Endsieg and two huge human vs. human full-theater scenarios on the Eastern Front and the Pacific War.  There are also fictional scenarios ranging from a Second American Civil War and a Kursk-like battle to perfectly balanced scenarios designed for PBEM match play.  Furthermore, for players with only the time to play and not create their own scenarios there is a powerful and easy-to-use random scenario generator that will keep gameplay fresh with minimum user input to create new missions and campaigns beyond those that come with the package.

War in the West: Operation Torch gets a release date!

Thursday, August 27, 2015

Gary Grigsby’s War in the West is unprecedented in its historical depth, detail and scope among computer wargames that depict the entire Western Front of World War II both on land and in the air.  War in the West is a “monster game” by any measure, but retains the ease of play that made its predecessor, War in the East, a classic.

Nevertheless, 2by3 Games has not been resting on their laurels. The team was eager to add more material and many improvements to the game. The result of all these efforts is Operation Torch, a stunning expansion that covers not only the eponymous operation by the combined forces of the Western Allies against the Afrika Korps after El Alamein, but also much more!
