Get the Strategic Command WW2 Global Theater Gold v1.04 Patch off WP (340mb)

The Gold expansion is an add-on and requires the original base game in order to play! SC WWII Global Conflict Gold boasts dozens of major new features, changes and improvements to the original game - many based on fan suggestions - as well as 4(!) new major campaigns, 4 entirely reworked campaigns (to include the new features), and a whole lot more! SC WWII Global Conflict Gold will be released at the end of this year, 2011, and will be available for only $25 as digital download, physical hardgoods via mail, or both.

A bundle consisting of the base game plus the Gold expansion will be available at the time, as well.

The Strategic Command World War Two Global Conflict Gold expansion boasts dozens of improvements and major new features over the original game. Below is a list of some of the most important changes and additions to the game.

The latest patch for Furysoftware's Strategic Command WW2 Global Theater Gold , v1.04 Gold includes various bug fixes and addresses a game imbalance issue that appears to favour the Axis side between two equally competent players. All previous new features and improvements are included as well, such as: improved compatibility with Windows 8, as well as dozens of improvements, fixes and tweaks to both the Gold game engine as well as the Gold editor - many based on feedback from the fan community forums and email - and even a completely new bonus campaign, 1942 Brute Force, which is a alternative map Europe and Pacific 1942-1945 campaign.

PREVIOUS SAVE GAME COMPATIBILITY NOTE
Save games created with earlier versions of the Gold add-on are NOT compatible with this version. Please finish your in-progress games before applying this patch.
