The conflict that sees Saudi Arabia facing Iran explodes once again. One of the Iran’s marine ships returns fire after it has been attacked by a Saudi force.

While both sides refuse to take responsibility for what happened and the truth will never be known, the situation goes out of control when the Iran decides to retaliate against the Saudi Arabia for its behaviour. 

Both nations’ weaponry, military and navy forces have advanced considerably during the last few years, and both sides’ objectives are clear: to strike at the enemy’s economic heart, the oil infrastructures.

The rest of the world can only stand by and watch as the war arises.

Command LIVE: Black Gold Blitz is the latest expansion of the Command series that will bring you in the Middle East, for one of the bloodiest battles of modern times.

This November, the 7th you will have to choose one side and lead it to victory!

  • Playable as Saudi Arabia or Iran.
  • Asymmetric warfare, matching a large fleet of advanced aircraft against an enemy weaker in that field but strong in ballistic missiles and unconventional operations.
  • Both offense and defense must be considered. Knowing how to balance defending your own oil infrastructure while destroying that of your enemies is essential for victory.
  • Special operations that are both risky and possibly lucrative.
  • A large target set consisting of everything from derricks and pipeline segments to valuable refineries.
  • A wide range of playable units that range from cutting-edge aircraft such as the Eurofighter Typhoon and F-15SA to Cold War classics like the Tornado, F-4 Phantom, and F-14 Tomcat.
  • Coordinate units based on the length of two gigantic countries.

Armored Brigade Dev Diary #2 - Planning the Battle

Monday, July 23, 2018

Juha Kellokoski, the main game designer from Veitikka Studios, will give us a short overview on a very important topic: how to effectively plan and manage your units during a battle! Kudos to Juha for this great article

In this Dev Diary entry I will show one way to manage a defensive battle plan. As an example, I've decided to play as the United States Army, defending against the Soviet Union. Armored Brigade battles have three phases: the setup phase, the action phase and the after action report phase. Here I'm going through the setup phase. The player must designate his target reference points (TRP) and place obstacles, if he has any, and optionally he can plan unit paths, fire missions etc.

Space Program Manager celebrates the 49th anniversary of the Moon Landing with a discount!

Friday, July 20, 2018

On July 20, 1969, at 10:56 p.m. Eastern Time, people across the Earth listened the words of NASA astronaut Neil Armstrong: "That's one small step for man . . . one giant leap for mankind". These now famous words marked the Apollo 11 mission as one of the most crucial enterprise for modern human history. 

For the first time, human beings walked across the surface of the silent companion of our Planet and the hearts of millions of people watching the event vibrated with an emotion impossible to describe.

Aggressors Dev Diary #6 - Combat (part 1)

Friday, July 20, 2018

One thing I have never liked about 4X strategy games is the missing tactics. I never really understood why. Why cannot a game combine both – strategy and tactics? After all, quite a few generals became emperors!

Armored Brigade Dev Diary #1 - Artificial Intelligence

Monday, July 16, 2018

The Armored Brigade artificial intelligence (AI) is fully dynamic, which means that it can handle any scenario within the game parameters, without a need for any scripting from the scenario designer. This approach has been the basic foundation of the game. I've always found the procedurally generated game content fascinating, and that can be seen in the design philosophy of Armored Brigade.

In Armored Brigade, there's an undefined number of maps, units, environmental conditions, and so on. The system must build a readable representation, process the input and then produce output that creates a credible impression of intelligence that behaves in a realistic, unpredictable and challenging manner. That's quite a challenge indeed. A "chess AI", where you have a finite number of possible states, is out of the question.
