Panzer Corps 2 to be released on March 19th

Post by AlbertoC » Tue Jan 21, 2020 2:02 pm

Just yesterday we revealed the release date you were all waiting for: Panzer Corps 2 will be released on March 19th.

It will also be possible to pre-order the game starting on February 6th. Pre-ordering Panzer Corps 2 will give you access to a series of exclusive assets and a nice discount on the final price.



Yesterday was in general a big day for Panzer Corps 2. We had the producer of the game, David Sharrock, live on our Twitch channel for over a hour, during which he showcased plenty new features and new, never seen before gameplay footage.



Furthermore, as we had announced, Pixelated Apollo streamed part of the single player campaign for the first time ever. You can watch his take on the invasion of Poland here.

We have two more pieces of news for all Panzer Corps fans.

- We are opening a Discord channel! As you know Panzer Corps 2 will have Live multiplayer, so the Discord channel will be a great place to find online opponents. It will also be a gathering place for all fans to discuss the game and interact with the devs. Join the Discord channel here.
- DasTactic is going to start a Let's play series of streams on our Twitch channel later this week. Tune in on our Twitch channel on Friday January 24th at 6 pm GMT for the first episode.

Uh, sorry but the new trailer makes me cringe! All those tanks from various nations mixed up and firing at each other's sides is just too much... I get it that a trailer has to have some level of excitement and action, which necessitates some artistic touches, but it should also have a basic level of realism where here we see close to none.

I'd recommend at least removing it from your Steam store page, because it is not likely to convince anyone with beginner or above knowledge of tank battles to try the game.

Well the trailer doesn't have any pretense to historical accuracy.

It represents the fact that Panzer Corps 2 is also a sandbox game: you can generate random maps and play on them with any faction against any other faction. Nothing stops you from having an island showdown between UK and the USA.

Can you manually turn OFF all the animations/eye candy AND turn on the hex grid?
Thanks for info

So it will be some kind of "World of Tanks" by Slitherine ? :)

I have no problem with that, because I know you are preparing a very extensive historical campaign at the same time.

As things stand now, you cannot turn off animations completely, but you can speed them up like 10x from normal. You can also play in strategic mode - then you will have no eye candy or anything 3d on the screen. Hex grid is of course available.

I don't mind the trailer either as the game already looks very promising. I'm just worried the trailer may do a disservice to the game instead of promoting it, which may lead to less content in the future.

Anyway, god speed!

Go to the PzC2 Beta Forum, that is where they give more info.
There comes a time on every project when it is time to shoot the engineer and ship the damn thing.

I wasn't aware they are granting access to the official discord for public use yet. What discord are you talking about/did join?
