Back to News Listing Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps Release Date Nears!

Posted: Thursday, July 5, 2012 by Scott Parrino

Type: Press Release

 

Matrix Games and Slitherine (www.slitherine.com) , along with The Lordz Games Studio (www.thelordzgamesstudio.com) and Flashback Games are excited to announce the upcoming release of Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps, the next title in the Wargame of the Year series, Panzer Corps. The release date has been set for July 31, 2012.

Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps will be available as an expansion to existing owners of Panzer Corps and as a stand-alone game to new players.

The war now moves to the hot and unforgiving deserts of North Africa, where the vaunted Afrika Korps begins their 1941 offensive into Libya and Tunisia to push to the Suez Canal and secure the oil-rich fields of the Arabian Peninsula. With the British Army and her allies standing in the way, players will have to fight hard to ensure victory. If all goes well it may even be possible to advance on Britain’s crown jewel: India.

Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps comes packed with 24 new scenarios that take place in North Africa, the Middle East and India, as well as several new engaging multiplayer scenarios through Slitherine’s PBEM++ network.

Players can look forward to more than 20 new units, ranging from gliders and flamethrower tanks to motorcycle infantry and minefields. Moreover an excess of 70 existing units have been re-skinned for desert camouflage. The Germans won’t be standing alone in their fight, as Italian units can now join the player’s core force to carry through the campaign to earn experience and equipment upgrades.

The modder’s community will also now have new units and tile-sets available for use in their scenario-creating escapades. The changes to the modding tools are not only confined to new units and tiles though. A wide array of new options have also been included: more advanced scripting, a number of new AI orders, heroes configuration, unit placement randomization and much more.

Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps is both; an expansion for the existing Panzer Corps owners and a full stand-alone game that does not require Panzer Corps for new players.

Features

  • A brand-new Afrika Korps campaign with 24 new scenarios and several MP scenarios.
  • More than 20+ new units added including gliders, flamethrower tanks and much more.
  • More varied and dynamic scenarios.
  • New desert-related weather types, terrain tile sets and unit camouflage.
  • Improved AI.
  • The Library extended with the most prominent WW2 airplanes.
  • Your core force can now contain allied units, such as Italians.
  • Brand new music tracks.
