'Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear' Announced

by Rainier on Feb. 23, 2012 @ 11:04 a.m. PST

Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear, a faithful adaptation of the Conflict of Heroes board game, takes you to the Eastern Front of World War II during Operation Barbarossa, the German invasion of the Soviet Union.

Designed and developed in cooperation with Uwe Eickert, the original designer of Conflict of Heroes, no effort has been spared to bring the outstanding Conflict of Heroes gameplay to the computer.  Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear! includes an AI opponent as well as full multiplayer support with an integrated forum and game lobby.  To remain true to the core gameplay of the board game, the PC version is designed to be fun, fast and easy to play, though hard to master. The game design is also historically accurate and teaches and rewards platoon and company-level combined arms tactics without overwhelming the player with rules. 

Erik Rutins, Director of Product Development at Matrix Games said: “When we first played Conflict of Heroes, we knew that we had to bring it to the computer. The award-winning development team at Western Civilization Software was our first choice for this project and their excitement about this title matches our own.  After more than two years of development with the combined efforts of Western Civilization Software and Academy Games, the result is a title that all Conflict of Heroes fans and tactical scale wargamers will love”.

Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear! takes you to the Eastern Front of World War II during Operation Barbarossa, the German invasion of the Soviet Union.  This release includes a historical roster of infantry, artillery, mechanized and support units for the Axis and Soviet forces for the time frame of Operation Barbarossa.

Also included are all ten original Awakening the Bear! scenarios as well as eleven new Frontier scenarios, five new Commanding Heights scenarios and a very flexible “Partisan Road” Point Buy scenario.  For those with a creative urge, Conflict of Heroes also comes with a scenario editor which allows players to create and share completely new scenarios using the Awakening the Bear units!

Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear! will be available for $39.99 Download / $49.99 Physical through the Matrix Games and Slitherine online stores.
