Unity of Command - out Nowfor PC and Mac!

Post by IainMcNeil » Fri Mar 02, 2012 5:14 pm

Slitherine are pleased to announce Unity of Command on PC and Mac is now available from the store!

In 1942, a titanic struggle is reaching its climax in the boundless, trackless expanses of southern Russia. The stakes cannot be higher as you take command of battle-hardened Wehrmacht or massive Red Army forces to decide the fate of an entire continent.

You can get the PC version here and the Mac version here.

Unity of Command for PC lets you replay the epic conflict that was the Stalingrad Campaign of World War II. In this turn-based game of strategy and cunning, observe how opportunity leads the German army to advance recklessly into the steppes of southern Russia. And as the story unfolds, join the Soviet campaign to repel the invaders... As these legendary battles play out on the hex board, the tension of decision making and difficulties of conducting operations on a massive scale emerge. Command armies and fronts in maneuver warfare, thrust and encircle, capture cities and cross continents; but never, ever forget to watch your supply lines.

Experience the highly fluid, enormously large battles of maneuver in a turn-based strategy setting. Take command in this mobile, back-and-forth sort of war where logistics and poor weather are often the decider, and defeat and victory are sometimes just a mile, or a day, apart.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Accurate yet approachable gameplay mechanics with operational-level units (Axis divisions, Soviet corps)

17+ detailed scenarios, Axis and Soviet, at the scale of 20km per hex, 4 days per turn

Campaign mode that sets historical and what-if scenarios in strategic context

Sophisticated weather model, with detailed per-hex weather

Innovative supply system, providing for exciting battles of encirclement and breakout

Belligerent and aggressive AI that knows how to counterattack and threaten supply lines

Integrated History Mode for after-action replays

Multiplayer via the Internet

Moddable content (everything is open)

Novel combined arms system: attach specialist steps to divisions and corps to enhance a variety of attributes of the unit

Specialist steps available for: heavy artillery, heavy Tiger and KV-1 tanks, 88mm Flak guns, NKVD blocking detachments, Italian Blackshirts and more

I'm quoting one of the devs, last week:
I know we should do a demo. Everyone thinks it's something you can do in a day or whatever, but I just know it's going to mushroom into another month-long time killer. Mark my words there :?

I need to sort out a few things first... there's a bit more work with Pieter for the expansion and some distribution deals to finish up. We'll see after that...
So probably it won't be now.
However I haven't read any bad review of the game, so far. :)

Well, that's the kind of Mushrooms we all like. . . . :P

But the game does look pretty! Can we change the unit icons to traditional style? (box icons with an X or oval, etc)
Thanks,

Yes it is available but you need to register your serial on Matrix Games to get it. The reason is we don't have a secure login area to distribute files and the developer asked us to remove the patch from our site as it was publicly hosted and he wanted it to be private. So for now you need to go here and setup an account and register your serial - http://www.matrixgames.com/members/members.asp.

We know this is not ideal and we're investigating how we could provide this but its a fairly significant amount of work as it requires front end changes, Admin tool UI changes and actually setting up a private area so has gone on the wish list but is not near the top yet.
