Wargamer Weekly: And on the third day…

It’s Easter Weekend here in the UK, which means two bank holidays and a four-day weekend. Go us!

The downside is that this week’s update is rather truncated as I had to get it prepped early. There hasn’t been a huge amount to report on, but we’ll cover the best bits.

Meanwhile, in the world of wargaming…

Matrix Games/Slitherine

Two release date announcements went out over the wireless this week – Shenendoah’s Napoleonic turn-based strategy game March to Glory will be releasing on April 12th. 

Meanwhile, the next entry in the Strategic Command Classic series – WW2 – will be releasing next week on April 5th. This will include all of the DLC, Weapon and Warfare, Pacific Theatre and Patton Drives East.

Last but certainly not least, Matrix are having an Easter Sale from now until April 3rd. Every game except for Empires Apart, Desert War,  Check Your 6! and Command: The Silent Service will be 30% off provided you use the following coupon code: ‘HappyEaster‘.

We recently went to see Matrix/Slitherine to check out some of their upcoming games. You’ll have already seen the articles for Armored Brigade and Close Combat – we’ve got one on Panzer Corps 2 on the way as well!

Panzer Battles 3

Wargame Design Studio have released an update for their upcoming new entry in their Panzer Battles series. Officially titled Battles of North Africa 1941, it hopes to cover the following engagements:

  • Operation Compass
  • Operation Sonnenblume
  • Tobruk
  • Operation Brevity
  • Operation Merkur (Crete)
  • Operation Battleaxe
  • Operation Crusader

The blog post goes into more detail than what we can summarise here, but it’s looking good!

That’s it for today’s rather short but sweet update. We’ll try and catch up on anything we missed next week. In the meantime, have a good weekend, and happy gaming!
