Hello everyone!
Today we are releasing the latest version of War in the West and Operation Torch. It's the first post-Steam release official update and resolves all significant issues reported to us since that time, as well as making some notable improvements to historical balance.

You can find the whole changelog HERE, while you can download the update from our Members' Area or directly from HERE!
A little preview:

  •  New Features and Rule Changes
    - Improved game performance (logistics and map draw).
    - Air base unit will be created once expansion starts. Size 0 air base appears in black color
    as size 1. Size 0 air bases should not be visible in air transfer mode (no AC on them).
    - Adjusted ground replacement routine to reduce substitution probability (more so for
    outdated equipment).
  • Bug Fixes
    - When assigning support units to a location, any support units in a HQ that are in the hex
    are not available to be assigned. Units in the same hex as the location should be able to be
    assigned to the location. Fixed.
    - Fixed air group display bug on air navigation panel (F10).
    - Ground elements which are not in the TOE or substitution list can get replaced into the
    unit. Fixed.
  • Data and Scenario Changes
    - Aircraft change - 0642 Lancaster B.I Special - add some 4000lb bomb loadouts for earlier
    use, limit 12000lb bomb use to 5/44 and later. A few other minor changes.
    - Device change - 0683 NEW: French 75mm CA Mle 1932 AA Gun (moved from 0561)
    - Many changes to scenarios. The most notable of these is the addition of many new frozen
    static divisions to the German forces in the campaign games. These divisions will use up
    some of the German manpower for training early in the scenarios, and then be activated
    as they were historically.

There you are guys. We hope you enjoy our new update and keep having fun with the game!

Empires Apart Dev Diary - The goal of the game

Tuesday, March 13, 2018

In our previous dev diaries we focused on the different available game modes, as well as the design behind the UI. Today we are going to cover a number of different subjects, but all have something in common: why we decided to make Empires Apart.

It’s no secret that we drew heavy inspiration from games that marked our childhood: Age of Empires, Empire Earth, and others. We wanted to bring back that feeling, the familiar atmosphere of games we loved, but also add our own touch, as well as modernize the formula, bring it to 2018’s standards. Empires Apart is, basically, the game we wanted to play.


Desert War Mechanicics .Shock Explained

Tuesday, March 13, 2018


“Everyone was talking and chatting, when slowly came into sight the first tank I ever saw.  Not a monster but a very graceful machine with beautiful lines….  Here was the missing tool of penetration, the answer to the dominance on the battlefield of small-arms fire.”—J.F.C. Fuller

Matrix Games/Slitherine’s upcoming release of Brian Kelly’s Desert War 1940-42 uses a simple game mechanic often found in WWII board games.  It gives tank units a “special place” in the player’s toolbox—a positive shift to the combat force ratio if attacking, and the opposite when defending.  Coming up short of attack factors?  No problem!  Throw in some tanks.  A 1 to 1 attack can become a 2 to 1, 3 to 1, 4 to 1, etc.  In Desert War 1940
