Matrix Games announces Germany at War: Barbarossa 1941
, a World War
II strategy game they call an "introductory turn-based operational wargame." A
has images and details on the game, which does not carry a
release date. Here's word:
This new title features gameplay in the style
of Panzer General and 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. Follow each Army Group through its initial battles,
build up a core force, then decide which front will have the main focus, North,
Center or South. Your decisions and outcomes determine the course of the
campaign, which is designed with replayability in mind.
Germany at War: Barbarossa 1941 is more historically focused than similar games,
with an emphasis on historical units and attachments and consistent modeling of
unit and hex scale, but is still a fun and easy to learn wargame.
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.
