Back to News Listing It's D-Day - Allied Corps storms the beaches!

Posted: Thursday, June 6, 2013 by Filippo Chianetta

Type: Press Release

 

D-Day. It was the 6th of June 1944, when U.S. General Eisenhower, the supreme commander of Allied Expeditionary Forces in Europe gave the go-ahead for Operation Overlord, the largest amphibious military operation in history.

That day almost 20.000 parachutists touched down on French ground and 6,000 landing craft, ships and other vessels carrying 176,000 troops stormed the Normandy coast after leaving England. On their ships, soldiers were anxiously waiting to land and commence the struggle to free Europe with proud heart and firm hand.

Today,we,along with Flashback Games Studio and the Lordz Games Studio (www.thelordzgamesstudio.com), are hugely proud to announce the long-awaited release of Panzer Corps: Allied Corps, the spiritual successor to Allied General!

This date has been intentionally chosen to commemorate this historic event with a game that follows in the footsteps of those brave men and women who put their lives at risk to free Europe from tyranny.

The Allied Corps campaign contains 30 scenarios, which take the player from Africa to Europe covering the war from 1940 to 1945. It features 900 units from more than 30 Nations including Great Britain, USA, France, Poland, Germany, Italy and more. It allows multiplayer via our asynchronous server and modding through the scenario editor.

 “We designed it, we tested it and we polished it: now it is ready to make Allied General fans everywhere happy” said Iain McNeil, Director of Development of the Slitherine Group. “We spent a lot of time and effort to make this possible improving the Panzer Corps engine and the results are amazing. We really hope wargamers will like Allied Corps”.

 

Take note: Allied Corps is a stand-alone game and does NOT require Panzer Corps to play

Aggressors Testers Diary - Modding

Friday, June 15, 2018

As a young player I was always browsing game files trying to find a way to change them. It was partially curiosity and partially a wish to modify the rules to my own liking, because no matter how great a game is, there is always something you want to tweak or adjust.

The option of modding was part of the game design from the very beginning as I wanted to give the players the opportunity to create the Aggressors realm with me in an easy and user-friendly way. Over time, the idea was brought even further – I decided to create a framework for strategy games of different worlds and historical eras.

Tigers on the Hunt second DLC announced! Welcome to Normandy!

Monday, June 11, 2018

June, 1944. Europe has been under the Nazi heel for 4 long years. Even if the Eastern Front is crumbling and the Red Army counterattacks are in full swing, the German Armed Forces are still a formidable opponent and are making very costly every inch of ground conquered.

Only a breach into the Festung Europa and the creation of a second front could ensure the beginning of the end of the Third Reich.
