A new story begins... Panzer Corps 2 has been announced!

Post by AlbertoC » Wed Mar 08, 2017 11:10 am

When we released Panzer Corps six years ago, our goal was to revive a genre by going back to its roots. We worked with Flashback Games and The Lordz Games Studio and with the help of a vibrant community to create a new classic that would start a new era in wargaming. We had goals, hopes and objectives, but we couldn’t possibly imagine the impact this game would have had in the wargaming and strategy gaming communities.

The release of Panzer Corps marked the return of a long-neglected gaming formula, which we knew still had a large and loyal following. Its spectacular success brought an almost forgotten genre back into fashion, it inspired multiple clones and literally gave new life to an entire market.

After over five years of expansions, mods, challenges and tournaments, a brand-new instalment of the franchise is ready to take the strategy gaming segment by storm again. This time, with even bigger ambitions.





Panzer Corps 2 is currently in development using Unreal Engine 4, to allow an impressive leap forward in both technological capabilities and visual impact. Hundreds of World War 2 units will be shown with a level of quality and detail never seen before in awargame.

The move to a fully 3D engine is a natural evolution of the game, but the core gameplay will always remain true to its roots: pay tribute to the classic gameplay of a distant golden age of strategy gaming, refine it, perfect it and use the most recent technologies to enhance these experiences and bring them to a new generation of gamers. In other words, strike the perfect balance between tradition and innovation, both in visuals and gameplay.

We will disclose more details about the game as we move through the development process, so make sure you follow us on the forum and on the Flashback Games site.

So super Excited about this.

I saw this on the forum as soon as I woke up this morning and pee-pee'd in my pants a little bit. ;)

My hopes are high for this one, not sure how they can improve on next to perfection but looking forward to see what they come up with, and if I can help in anyway. :mrgreen:

Very excited about this!
But..a big part of the success of PzC was it's awesome modability. Will that remain with a fully 3D engine?

No need to add eye candy by making it a 3D affair... After all this will not be a console action game... In my opinion, the real improvement is to add functionality and modding options, not flashy graphics... Besides it would be great that the tons of new graphics developed by modders for Panzer Corps could be used for the new game.

Maybe looking at the story of Panzer General and its derivatives could teach us something: The real progress in the franchise was Pacific General, for example (except for its UI, which was a step backwards, it added a lot of interesting combat rules, carrier units support, new traits, etc...) but in general PG2, Panzer General 3D, etc... were not such big hits as the original Panzer General was, notwithstanding the addition of 3D graphics.

Just my opinion.

Hmmm...
I pretty much considered Order of Battle to be a sequel to Panzer Corps.
But yeah, if you keep the same level of modding-support as you did with the first one, I'm all for this! ^^

I hope that PC2 will include ships guns swiveling and firing the proper direction. it's these little things that cause me to buy or not buy certain games.

No offence, but I can't believe anyone would consider OOB a sequel to Panzer Corps, with its annoying red supply lines and silly animations it's horrible. Yes, I did buy it and play it based on my trust of Slitherine... each to his own I suppose :-)

Will this game eventually be ported to iPad? I loved panzer corp for the ipad and find it more enjoyable to play on an ipad than pc. I was really dissapointdd when OOB did not get released on ipad when originally they said were going to.

Unreal Engine 4 is Cross-platform. :D
