Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

Commander: Europe at War (PC)

Iain McNeil from Slitherine Software said of the release “It’s been fantastic working with Matrix Games yet again and we here at Slitherine are particularly excited about the release of Commander: Europe at War. We’re confident that gamers will enjoy the infinite replayability and rich game dynamics of Commander: Europe at War for many years to come.”

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Commander: Europe at War is one of those games that just makes time fly by with its addicting qualities and fantastic gameplay. One moment the game is loading up for the first time and the next time you look away from your screen, hours have evaporated when they seemed like only minutes!”

Commander: Europe at War thrusts the player into the command of either the Axis or the Allies during World War II. With only two goals at hand, survive and conquer, the player is charged with building and commanding the combined air, land and sea forces of his side. Advance your research to the cutting edge of technology in order to best your opponents and either conquer or liberate Europe!

Commander: Europe at War is easy to learn and elegant, but deep in strategy and hard to master. Players will find themselves glued to their chairs from the beginning when all mayhem breaks loose across the continent with the invasion of Poland in 1939. Research new technologies, manage your manpower reserves, improve your industry, husband your oil supply and manufacture armies, fleets, and bombers to use all available strategic and tactical might to bring about victory. Commander: Europe at War includes realistic combat resolution that models supply morale, terrain, leadership, equipment, training, strategic weapons and fog of war. To capture the immense scope and distance of WWII, Commander: Europe at War includes 6 epic scenarios with different starting points, including the famous Barbarossa campaign, D-Day, the battle for France, and finally the Grand Campaign that will let the player refight the entirety of the Second World War the way they see fit!
