Annunciato Crusader Kings II: Rajas of India

Una nuova DLC per Crusader Kings II è stata annunciata dalla Paradox: Rajas of India. Dal nome già si capisce che la mappa sarà ampliata per includere l'India.

Dust off your jewelled turban and defend dharma as a mighty Indian Raja, conquering in the name of Indra! Raise war elephant units and fight in the dense jungle terrain. Make Siddhartha proud as a Buddhist and advance your technology or maintain a harmonious stable realm as a Jain. Raid your neighbors as a warlike Hindu of the Kshatriya caste! Crusader Kings II: Rajas of India introduces a wealth of new cultural and religious events that would appease even the ferocious goddess Kali, including meeting yogis and sadhus, celebrating Diwali and thinking about your reincarnation. Be careful, the Wheel of Life keeps on turning and those karmic forces can be equally cruel! With all eyes on Hindustan, the map has been extended far to the east to encompass hundreds of new provinces in Central Asia as well as opening up the ports of The Red Sea and Indian Ocean for navigation by your fleets.

L'uscita della DLC è prevista per questa primavera.

Primo Campaign Episode per Arma 3

Bohemian ha annunciato il primo campaign episode per Arma 3, dal titolo "Survive". Nella sostanza sarà un free DLC rilasciato il 31 ottobre.

“Our first campaign episode, ‘Survive’, introduces players to Ben Kerry, a regular soldier who’s part of a NATO peacekeeping mission in the Mediterranean. Following a couple of years of uneasy cease-fire, this US-led deployment is now in the process of a staged drawdown. The vacuum left by withdrawing forces is being rapidly filled by the opposing CSAT faction, creating the conditions for, one might say, a flashpoint”, explains Jay Crowe, Creative Director on Arma 3.

“Of course, it's not just about our own story, but another opportunity to provide yet more building blocks for the platform - new weapons, animations, 3D objects, scripted modules - each designed to grant content creators even greater freedom to create and share their own content. Looking forward to the forthcoming episodes, we’ll continue to expand Arma 3’s sandbox with additions such as new vehicles.”

Arma 3 features the large open terrains of ‘Altis’ (270 km²) and ‘Stratis’ (20 km²), 12 singleplayer showcases, 3 factions showcases, 9 multiplayer scenarios, 10 firing drill challenges, more than 20 vehicles and 40 weapons, 5 factions, the scenario editor and modding support. The singleplayer campaign is deployed across 3 free DLC episodes after release.

Rilasciato oggi Germany at War: Barbarossa 1941 sul sito Matrix:

Matrix Games and Phobetor are proud to announce the release of Germany at War: Barbarossa 1941, a new introductory turn-based operational wargame.

This new title is an exciting addition for turn-based strategy gamers as it features gameplay in the style of Panzer Generaland Panzer Corps, with a branching, event-filled campaign that takes you from the start of Operation Barbarossa towards the historical goals of Archangel or Astrakhan.

Your decisions and outcomes determine the course of the campaign, which is designed with replayability in mind.

For players ofPanzer Corps and Panzer General, Germany at War is a logical next step in the wargaming genre.

With 4 Campaigns, including 37 scenarios in the main campaign, 14 stand-alone scenarios and an editor with which to add new mission, multiplayer PBEM++ support and good graphics, this game is an exciting new milestone for gamers who enjoy Panzer Corps and similar games.

We are also releasing the at release v.1.0.55 update for the game to address a few issues that came up in testing the gold master version. It fixes a rare crash, adjusts the equipment for some of the divisions and adds a new cursors for different dpi settings.

Annuncio World War II Online

Riport un annuncio da Strategy Games Italia:

Mi rivolgo agli appassionati della Seconda Guerra Mondiale.

La simulazione da dove proveniamo sia io che Folgore, nonchè diversi altri membri di SGI, sta cercando di approdare su Steam. Chiediamo il vostro click di supporto ...
Il vostro voto ci aiuterà a far conoscere quella che viene universalmente riconosciuta come l'unica simulazione globale della Seconda Guerra Mondiale. Infatti in un unico enorme server confluiscono H24 tutte le migliaia di giocatori che danno vita ad una Campagna che può durare mesi e si svolge nel teatro operativo della Blitzkrieg grande quanto l'Europa Occidentale in scala ½ (30.000 km2) con una notevole accuratezza di riproduzione satellitare del terreno (800 metri). Tanto per farvi capire se volete farvi tutta la mappa da una parte all'altra ... prendetevi una settimana di tempo.

I giocatori sono divisi fra Asse (Germania) ed Alleati (Francia, Inghilterra e Stati Uniti) e gli armamenti vanno da 1940 al 1944. In base al grado (si passa di grado non le kills ma obbedendo agli ordini di missione, anche se prevedono di stare a guardia di una base), ai corsi di accademia (gli Ufficiali hanno accesso ad una serie di tools che gli permettono di gestire i propri uomini), la Divisione di appartenenza eccetera si possono usare diversi armamenti e specialità fra cui fanteria, paracadutisti, corazzati, artiglieria, aerei e navi. Il sistema è molto complesso, non ci sono AI (a parte alcuni nidi di mitragliatrici posizionate a difesa di alcune installazioni) e anche solo spostarsi di soli 3 km da una base avanzata ad una città nemica può richiedere molto tempo.

A causa delle dimensioni e della massa di giocatori, per evitare lag e l'utilizzo di supercomputer, la grafica è essenziale. Il modello di danno tuttavia è estremamente complesso e si potrebbe fare un trattato. Forse l'eccessiva difficoltà ci sta uccidendo ... ed è per questo che chiediamo il vostro aiuto. Siamo vicini alla soglia che ci permetterebbe di sbarcare su Steam ... cosa che per noi è assolutamente vitale in un contesto dove ormai la massa cerca FPS (e non è il nostro caso) piuttosto che la manovra e la qualità. Se ritenete opportuno aiutare questa simulazione unica, fatelo. Grazie davvero.

Prime immagini di Close Combat: Panthers in the Fog

Oggi sul sito Matrix c'è stato il primo annuncio pre-release e immagini di Close Combat: Panthers in the Fog, il nuovo e ultimo gioco della serie fatto con il vecchi engine. Matrix ha infatti ormai i diritti completi e può mettersi a sviluppare la propria versione con un nuovo engine.!

January 1st, 1996. Microsoft releases the first Close Combat, which launches the most successful computer wargame series in history. Almost seventeen years and fifteen releases later, the most popular real-time tactical wargame is back! With the release of Close Combat: Panthers in the Fog by Matrix Games ( and Slitherine (, the franchise goes full circle.

Close Combat: Panthers in the Fog depicts an historical battle that closely follows the events of Operation Overlord, which was the setting of the very first release. The Battle of Mortain, when the 47th German Panzer Corps launched a desperate week-long assault on the strategic position of Hill 315 where the U.S. 30th Infantry Division proudly defended the allied gains made during Operation Cobra and ensured the success of the breakout from Normandy and the liberation of France.

Close Combat: Panthers in the Fog has all the classic ingredients of its predecessors. Using an updated version of the engine, the game features factors such as ammo, morale, experience, suppressive fire, cover and concealment, along with weapon types, armor facing and penetration.

For the last time, the classic sprite and 2D artwork engine is used, but with improvements. With Panthers in the Fog, the game has been given a boost, bumping from the old 16-bit graphics to the much more detailed and impressive 32-bit graphics. Terrain and units look a lot better and players are now able to enjoy a never-seen-before level of detail.

With 35 linked battlefields and historically accurate formations and units, strategic choices are as important as tactical prowess. New features such as long-range interdiction, strategic high ground and adverse weather conditions give the player insight into the challenges faced by those who commanded both sides in this pivotal World War II battle.

The game includes more than 50 historically accurate key units and 47 weapon types rendered in exact detail. With 35 unique regions to fight over, the possibility of commanding up to 21 squads per battle and truly enhanced multiplayer experience using Slitherine's integrated lobby system, Close Combat: Panthers in the Fog has all the elements to become a classic like all its predecessors.

Close Combat: Panthers in the Fog is aiming to release this November. For more information on Close Combat: Panthers in the Fog, view the official product page on the Matrix Games or Slitherine website.
