Back to News Listing Horse and Musket: Volume I Is Updated

Posted: Sunday, March 21, 2010 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

Six new battles, some new documentation, and more with this first official update!

Matrix Games and Boku Strategy Games (www.bokustrategygames.com) are proud to release the first official update for their turn-based strategy game, Horse and Musket: Volume I. This comprehensive 1.12 update comes with a new player generated scenario with six new battles, a Scenario Editor Users Guide, plenty of bug fixes, and some alternate terrain textures.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Horse and Musket: Volume I is a great system and I can’t wait to see what other great things come out of Boku’s corner. This update is another step in making the Horse and Musket series all that it can be!”

 

Relive the exciting and trying days of Frederick the Great in Horse and Musket: Volume I, the improved and expanded combination of the previous Prussian War Machine and Prussia’s Glory titles. Horse and Musket: Volume I is a reboot of the successful Horse and Musket series, including not only two solid historical titles in one package, but also many new game features, a powerful new editor, and a complete graphics overhaul to an already acclaimed gaming system.

 

Through the classic turn-based hex system, gamers take command of a wide variety of historical units and leaders as they try to follow in Frederick’s footsteps across 10 of his famous battles, making for a whopping 40 scenarios in total. Maneuver your infantry battalions, cavalry squadrons, and artillery batteries to break the enemy lines and claim your own title as a great captain of history!

 

Perhaps the most important feature to celebrate with Horse and Musket: Volume I is the revival of this innovative gaming system!  With many new features and improvements, this latest release still has the same engaging game mechanics that bring to life the battlefields and tactics of the 18th Century!

 

Get the update here. This update is comprehensive and will bring all previous versions of Horse and Musket: Volume I to 1.12.

HoW15 - Why is this game about World War 2, again?

Friday, May 29, 2015

Eastern Front is out fashion, they say. Ardennes are trendier these days. Pacific has been ignored for far too long and North Africa campaigns are not too popular, Husky is not doing too well and so it goes. But why are we always talking about World War 2, in the end? 
 
There are interesting studies about this, that range from psychology to actual gameplay and customers behaviour analysis. One goes, for instance, that World War 2 allows a natural progression for players, from invasion of Poland to harder fought Operation Barbarossa, to get into gameplay mechanics gradually, in a historically accurate setting. 
 
Reality is that World War 2 as a topic sells games. Or gives more chances for games to succeed in the market, at least. According to data we have on hand, which take into account over fifteen years of history, the only setting that's able to compete with World War 2 is Sci-Fi. So scienc

HoW15 - Does complexity define wargames?

Thursday, May 28, 2015

What defines complexity, after all? Does a game for experts need to be hard to play? Over the years there has definitely been a race to add more details to the games. Abstraction has become an design target few wargames developers are willing to pursue, because it breaks the rule of historical accuracy, but is the real thing fun to play?
