currently we are working on a number of things but we have to start our next major content push. We are currently working on
* Patch for PzC/AK
* Demo for AK
* German versions of AK and DLC's 39-42.
* iPad/Mac version of PzC & add ons
* Western branch of the GC
We know there is a lot of demand for a campaign from the Allied side but we want to know which side you are most interested in and where to focus first. The campaign would be like the base game but played from the other side, so a full set of heroes, medals, upgrade options for units, a core force and branching campaign tree. It will be focussed on European theatre, not the Pacific (not to say there may not be something Pacific related later but this will not be it). We've already done a lot of the work for both but now need to decide which one to finish off and release first. If we really focus it may even be possible to get one out before Christmas but as you can see above there are lots of other pressures on the team!
Would you prefer to see a full campaign covering the Western Allies, one covering the Soviets or you don't have any strong preference?
I can't promise we'll go with the voting but knowing what you guys think definitely helps feed the thought process. The more opinions the better!

That would be my preference too. Again I would like something of the flavour of the DLCs rather than the vanilla campaign as I prefer these scenarios that dont in most cases cover the whole front, but give a flavour of the fighting at that period. In '41 it would have to be small scale fire fighting to begin with and the amount of units starting to expand from the winter offensives where it would be possible to cover larger parts of the front and be able to get away historically with more Russian successes.jaggy wrote:Russia, please. It will be interesting to play the war from a Russian perspective. If there's a possibility and there is demand, maybe expand the Soviet expansion to something like the German DLCs. If you go this route, obviously a lot of defensive scenarios at the start and more offensive scenarios when the Soviets start ramping up their production. The best part is that it will probably be tough for the player due to poor combat ratings for the Russians at the start of the war, so this will definitely be more of a challenge than when playing the Germans.
Yes the Japanese. Think about it, they were at war effectively from 1931 I believe, till 1945. So you have plenty to work with.
They were fighting the Chinese of course, and they fought the Russians (a lot seem to forget that late war stuff), they fought marines and they fought limeys in Burma, they fought Canadians in Hong Kong and they fought people from India, Indonesia, the Dutch you name it. Full out land warfare and the steaming jungles of New Guinea and the desperate island battles.
A great chance to really take this program for a serious walk.
And how often do we get to try and win as Japan?
The Allies.... booooooooring.
The Russians ..... even more done it already.
Come on guys, you WILL get people complaining that they have already invaded Normandy so often they have given names to every rock on Omaha. And how often can you beat the tar out of Russia only to realise they never run out of men. It gets old.
Don't make me list all the games currently on the market already doing the Allies and or the Russians operationally.

If there's lots of demand then I'm sure the developers would take
notice. For me western allies/soviet campaigns never get old. For gear heads
nothing beats the ETO.
I actually played "Allied General" before PG, IIRC because it was Windows compatible first. Fun game, strangely maligned by a lot of reviewers for some reason. It also had a Soviet campaign, but I think it was pretty short.
As for "Allied Corps" hope it has at least both Brit and Yank paths. Brits could start at Norway, Yanks with Torch.
Any consideration given to a French/Free French path? Some interesting possibilities there.
Don't get me wrong, I love the Eastern Front DLCs. Maybe when PC goes back there, not only include a Russian Path but maybe a new German one with new scenarios? That war was big enough to accommodate a new Wehrmacht campaign!
As for the Pacific, I would love to see it but I hope it is not overly dependent on naval actions, this is not where the strength of the game lies IMO. Wasn't a big fan of Pacific General for that reason, although some of the land-based scenarios were fun.
PGII had such a what-if scenario, but it was the only one to cover this fictional campaign.
