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.

Monday, March 02, 2015

The real question is not whether machines think but whether men do.” (B. F. Skinner– American Psychologist)

Directly inspired from the board game of the same name, Legions of Steel is a fast-paced and thrilling tactical game. Squads of machines and humans fight hard in the inhospitable undergrounds of the production facilities. With the one shot, one kill philosophy adopted by the developers, every move, line of sight, and action point becomes a resource of strategic importance.

Today we are happy to announce that the game will be available in May 2015 on both PC and iPad! Initially announced for late 2014, developer Studio Nyx decided to extend the development period in order to provide more content into the game, and especially nerve-racking multiplayer modes that should seduce fans of competitive and intense matches!

“The path to paradise begins in hell(Dante Alighieri – Italian poet)

The angelic and peaceful kingdom of Gilrand is in great danger. Led by Lord Devil in person, merciless demons are raiding the defenseless Human world. To repel such a despicable attack, humanity can only rely on an holy and mysterious order of fearless knights, priests, and wizards known as “The Order of Radiance”.

An epic fight between these two fundamentally opposed factions is bound to begin!

To End All Wars Breaking The Deadlock Released!

Tuesday, February 24, 2015

Once the mass of the defending infantry become possessed of low morale, the battle is as good as lost.” (Douglas Haig – Commander of British Expeditionary Force)

Early 1915 – After a massive initial push from the Central Powers on the Western Front, the war is bogged down. Commanders from both sides protect their positions with strong defensive structures and fail to find breaches in the enemy lines. Artillery and barbed wire make the assaults deadly and wasteful. But in Breaking the Deadlock, the first expansion of Ageod’s World War 1 wargame To End All Wars, players can develop new tactics to outsmart their opponent and break the stalemate once and for all!

Breaking the Deadlock focuses on key moments of the Great War. It provides a series of short, intense and very detailed scenarios in which every single turn has decisive consequences on the final outcome of the battle!

And It's not over! We are also releasing patch 1.02 for the base game, bringing a host of improvements, including bug fixes, scenario changes and much more!
