'Panzer Corps' Expands With Grand Campaign ’42, Beta Testers Needed

by Rainier on Dec. 16, 2011 @ 3:24 p.m. PST

Panzer Corps follows in the footsteps of Strategic Simulations Inc.'s Panzer General (1994) and shares the same level of engagement and strategic depth. Panzer Corps will keep an unmistakable "PG feeling" whilst improving and refining the gameplay and balance.

Fans of the old Panzer General series rejoice for the release of Panzer Corps. Following in the footsteps of the popular SSI masterpiece and sharing with the General series the same level of engagement and strategic depth, Panzer Corps will keep an unmistakable "PG feeling" whilst improving and refining the gameplay and balance.

Panzer Corps will feature 26 scenarios on 21 unique maps, covering most major battles of the European Theatre of World War II and including a few hypothetical 'what if' scenarios based on your actions.

In Grand Campaign ’42 you take command of battle-hardened German army on the Eastern Front to repel Soviet offensives and embark on the exciting and challenging push between the Don and Donets rivers towards Stalingrad.

Poland, Norway, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg, France, Yugoslavia, and Greece.  All of these nations have fallen under occupation, and it was assumed that Russia would quickly join their ranks.  Not only has the Russia Bear survived the invasion of 1941, but its winter offensive is still in full swing!  Take command of your forces once again in the latest installment of the Grand Campaign as you repel Soviet offensives and begin the fateful advance between the Don and Donets towards Stalingrad!

This DLC features 15 all new scenarios, a sprawling urban combat environment of Stalingrad, new campaign features, unique objectives such as escorting train convoys and smashing enemy reinforcements as they attempt to cross the Volga River, and the capacity to save your core force for use in future campaigns!

The Grand Campaign’s are a series of expansions for Panzer Corps and require Panzer Corps. Each campaign can be started with the core force from the previous Grand Campaign, so you can continue all Grand Campaign expansions carrying over all the core forces that completed the previous ones. Alternatively players can start with a preset core force and play each campaign on its own, or jump in to the Grand Campaign at any year.

  • Nations: all major and many minor nations represented: Germany, Italy, Poland, France, Great Britain, USA, USSR, Norway, Belgium, Netherlands, Albania, Romania, Greece and more.
