Martix Games has announced that Panzer Corps, their latest World War II theatre wargame, is now available a week early through digital distribution.
The game, which has been in development for two years, puts gamers in charge of Axis armies, taking their core force with them through the entire war. The use of combined-arms tactics requires each general to make use of the strengths and exploit the weaknesses of their opponents.
Panzer Corps is Matrix's attempt to make an accessible wargame, designed to replicate the feeling of a classic wargame, but with concessions to modern gaming. It also features an all-new multiplayer mode that improves upon developer Slitherine's PBEM++ system, allowing players find opponents easil and hassle-free.
Some of the bullet-point features include:
• 400 unit types, divided into 19 unit classes with 20 detailed parameters to identify units abilities, 17 terrain types affecting gameplay in various way. Panzer Corps will celebrate the glory days of strategy gaming with the aim of attracting new players to the genre;
• Campaign: all 26 scenarios are combined into a large campaign tree with several entry points at various stages of the war. Depending on the outcome of each battle (decisive victory, marginal victory or defeat), the player will be faced with different challenges and a progress along different parts of the campaign tree;
• Nations: all major and many minor nations represented: Germany, Italy, Poland, France, Great Britain, USA, USSR, Norway, Belgium, Netherlands, Albania, Romania, Greece and more.
• Core units that travel with you throughout the campaign gaining experience and that can be upgraded as new weapon technologies become available.
Panzer Corps will be available in physical retail July 18.
