Panzer Corps goes Pacific

Post by Edmon » Fri Jul 09, 2021 3:30 pm

Panzer Corps goes Pacific

For the first time in its 10 year history the Panzer Corps series is going to thoroughly explore the Pacific theatre of operations in the Second World War. This DLC is the first installment in a new series of campaigns which will portray the dramatic events of the Pacific War.

Image

In this new expansion players can enjoy many new scenarios and be immersed in a completely new set of terrain graphics, new game rules and a new major faction. Pacific is still the good old Panzer Corps 2 game which fans enjoy and love, but at the same time it’s also a new, different and original experience.

At long last Japan has been added to Panzer Corps 2. With the introduction of Pacific, Japan is playable not only in a new campaign, but also in random scenarios and in Multiplayer. It is also fully available to modders and designers of custom content. In addition to that, the USA faction has also received many new units, with a particular focus on famous carrier-based aircraft. Overall, 70 new models will be added to the game.

In the Pacific theater naval warfare played a prominent and critical role, and thus the naval aspect of the game needed to be expanded and have depth added. For this reason, naval game rules have been significantly revamped and extended. All the existing content has also been tested and tweaked to work with the new naval system without any glitches.

The new Pacific campaign represents many famous (and some not so famous) battles which took place between 1941 and 1943, among which are Guadalcanal, Midway, Wake Island and Tarawa. As players have come to expect, after finishing this campaign, it will be possible to save core units and bring them to the next part of the series.

We will reveal and show more of Panzer Corps 2: Pacific and disclose the release date in the next few months. More information can be currently found on its product page.

The scenario list looks more to me like a US Player Campaign than Japanese.

Maybe in the future, but those are US offensive battles, not Japanese. If you were making a Japanese campaign, wouldn't you start with China, Pearl Harbor, Singapore, Dutch East Indies, etc.?

Will the Japanese units also be incorporated into the magnificent Random Mission Generator?
At the moment (July 2021) these below are the available nationalities you can choose to play.
(PS- just to digress, why are there no Spanish units in there?)

I guess it makes a lot more sense to do a smaller USA campaign to test out the Pacific front (maybe in 2 parts) and the do a Grand Campaign for the Japanese alter, once the new mechanics that are required to make naval combat work are tested extensively and balanced out. Plus the current Grand Campaign is hopefully called Axis Operations for a reason - I even imagine a scenario in which you can one day invade the USA with Japanese, German and Italian cores combined - heck maybe even Hungary or Romania. If dream, then dream big. :D

Hi I am new to the forum. I was wondering if Infantry be more of a important class of units to use in the Pacific campaign as tank combat was not as big as it is in the European theater of war.

Its too early to say yet but as you say, given the less important role played by tanks in the Pacific, you can expect navy, air and foot to have more emphasis.

And flamethrowers.

You could also work on marines unit for the game as high damage glass cannon unit. Cause most of the time this unit use in the war they attack fordefatd bunker and machine gun pstishouns with little to no cover at all where there would be alot of casuties.
