Back to News Listing Conquest of the Aegean Gets a New Update

Posted: Monday, April 28, 2008 by Sean Drummy

Type: Update

The award winning continuous time strategy game just got better!

Matrix Games and Panther Games (www.panthergames.com) are pleased to announce that the critically acclaimed Conquest of the Aegean has received a fourth update. This update includes a few minor fixes to issues related to victory point calculations and the handling of static units that were discovered since the third update.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “The Highway to the Reich engine on which Conquest of the Aegean is based continues to excite and entertain gamers and shows no signs of abating. The latest update includes just a few small tweaks but will nevertheless improve the already groundbreaking gameplay found in Conquest of the Aegean.  If you want to experience the most realistic operational command simulation on the market, give Conquest of the Aegean a try!”


In Conquest of the Aegean, players get to take on the role of either an Allied or German commander during World War II and match their wits against either a computer controlled opponent or a human opponent via LAN or the internet. You can play as the Allies in a desperate fight to maintain a foothold on the southern flank of Europe using the mountainous Greek terrain to achieve concealment and surprise. Or, the for the more aggressive commanders among us, you can fight as the Axis who are tasked with driving as hard and fast as possible into Greek territory to assure an expedient and inexpensive victory.
 
Based on the very successful Airborne Assault: Highway to the Reich, this operational “pausable continuous time” strategy game represents a major step forward from its predecessor. Not only does Conquest of the Aegean take you to a new theatre of the Second World War, but also major changes to the game have been made engine to make it an even more detailed and realistic recreation of WWII combat. To breathe fresh life into Airborne Assault while still capturing the strategically intense but fun gameplay that came with previous titles in the series, Conquest of the Aegean includes a realistic resupply system, a vastly enhanced interface, and improved weather patterns, all complemented by 20 brand new maps and 30 brand new scenarios.

 

Also, keep your eyes open for the upcoming new release Battles from the Bulge, also from Panther Games and Matrix Games!

 

Get the update here. The update will bring the game to version 3.4.151 and is comprehensive.

HoW15 - I don't like this, it doesn't work

Friday, June 12, 2015

Imagine catching a flight to a distant city you've never been to. You leave in a rush, no time to read a proper travel guide. Don't know the language either. Don't know the local rules: this trip is going to be a nightmare, for sure. 
 
The airport is your first test. And most airports are pretty good at showing the right information, making good use of symbols, guiding customers through the right paths and making them feel like they are doing the right thing and it's not as hard as they thought just before landing.

HoW15 - A War of Religions?

Tuesday, June 09, 2015

Sometimes personal preferences about turn resolutions are dangerously bordering with orthodoxy. Something close to the Nadal and Federer debate (Federer for me, of course), Pasta and Rice, Beatles and Rolling Stones, Keira Knightley and Scarlett Johansson (well, both, in this case). 
 
Play style is important. It can instantly attract or discourage players to even view product information. A tough choice that goes hand in hand with many other basic design choices that an experienced wargamer would spontaneously check to gauge his/her interest in a product.
