New Panzer Corps Trailer, Developer Diary and Beta Details

Press Release — Epsom, January 13th 2011 (via Games Press)

It’s a great day for anyone out there eagerly waiting for the release Panzer Corps!
Top of the list is a brand new Developer Diary. The first episode is written in the form of an interview to Alexander Shargin, Lead Developer on the game, published on the Slitherine site: www.slitherine.com/pc_dd_1

The article is packed full of information about the game, which is in development at the Lordz Games Studio, covering its features and interesting facts on how it has been designed and developed. The basic principles used to bring back that ‘Panzer General’ feeling in a modern game, which are the cornerstone of the design and details on the multiplayer options and an in-depth description of the single player campaign mode.

The diary also comes with a dedicated teaser trailer, which can also be found on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/user/SlitherineGames?feature=mhum#p/u/25/95JHrFOUaQQ) and new screenshots and artwork of in-game units. (Editorial note: The video is also provided below for reader convenience.)

The game is fast approaching the beta stage and Slitherine and Matrix are looking for beta testers! To enroll in the beta testing program, press and fans need to register on the Slitherine dedicated page: http://slitherine.com/beta_test/panzer_corps_pc

The game is absolutely huge:
–          400 unit types, divided into 19 unit classes with 20 detailed parameters to identify unit’s abilities, 17 terrain types affecting the gameplay in various ways. Panzer Corps will celebrate the glory days of strategy gaming with the aim of attracting new players to the genre;
–          Campaign: all 26 scenarios are combined into a large campaign tree with several entry points at various stages of the war. Depending on the outcome of each battle (decisive victory, marginal victory or defeat), the player will be faced with different challenges and progress along different parts of the campaign tree;
–          Nations: all major and many minor nations represented: Germany, Italy, Poland, France, Great Britain, USA, USSR, Norway, Belgium, Netherlands, Albania, Romania, Greece and more.
–          Core units that travel with you throughout the campaign gaining experience and that can be upgraded as new weapon technologies become available.
