Panzer Corps Gold – The ultimate edition of Panzer Corps!

Post by AlbertoC » Thu Sep 22, 2016 2:54 pm

Back when we released the U.S. Corps packs we told you they would be the last DLCs for the Panzer Corps series, but we never said that the path of Panzer Corps had come to an end. Millions of people enjoyed Panzer Corps in the last few years: it’s been a long and epic ride, but it’s not over yet.

We are going to update the game and make a special edition containing every expansion and DLC ever published: Panzer Corps Gold!

For the first time you’ll have the opportunity to buy every single expansion plus the base game in a single product, thus receiving a big discount on the whole package.

To celebrate the Gold edition we are going to add some decisive improvements to the game’s interface; now it’ll be possible to see a combat prediction in the map screen while planning your movement, and your units’ special abilities will be highlighted in the UI! Those are life changers, trust me.

In order to be fair to those who already own the game these improvements will be available to anyone in a free patch.

Would you like to know more, and also take a look at the shining (literally) new box? Please visit the product page and don’t forget to comment here!

Yes, but it might take a bit longer. We're definetely bringing those UI improvements to iOS though, and we'll try to release it on the same day.

Exciting news ! Panzer Corps is a unique game that comes close to other classics like Advanced Tactics (The one made by Nintendo) and the "Panzer General" series. Though I never played such game before but I always see people post how Panzer Corps is a successor to such game.

I really look forward to this being released. I have all the PZC versions available and do mind not paying for this ultimate edition, although to be fair adding mods to it from our wonderful forum is the true ultimate Panzer Corps!!! :D

Old Timer Panzer General fan. Maybe a Volksturm soldier now. Did they let Volksturm drive Panzers?

I own all Panzer Corps content except SEA LION and SOVIET CORPS.

Will there be any reason for me to purchase Panzer Corps Gold? What would I be getting that I do not already have, except the two DLC that I do not own now?


Thanks

The new interface won't be exclusive for PzC Gold.

Where did you say that? Why? There's plenty of material left for DLCs.

Is there going to be a discount for the owners of the standard edition?

It was announced by the devs after US Corps came out.

Yes, there is material left, but the developers are now working on something bigger... and newer... but I can't say more!

The gold edition will be sold on Steam as well as a Steam "Complete your set" Bundle pack.

It means that you'll be able to buy the Gold edition bundle by only buying the content you don't own already - at a discounted price.

On our store it will still be discounted thanks to our cross-sell system.

No. It's just the compilation of all the game expansions and DLC, with no new units or new scenarios.

Whatever it is, I am intrigued!

The ultimate fusion of Panzer General/Corps with Steel Panthers, extending beyond WW2 and incorporating today's tanks?! NERDGASM! :wink:

After Pacific General, SSI began to deteriorate gradually through Panzer General 2, 3, People's General, and then completely jumped the shark with Star General. The game then languished for a decade until Panzer Corps returned it to something more akin to its roots (though with a few of the later innovations). I hope that "bigger... and newer" isn't the start of going down the same dark road SSI did.
