Strategic Command Classic: Global Conflict Arrives February 8th06 Feb 2018 0
Matrix recently took over the publishing rights to Fury Software’s older, Battlefront-era Strategic Command games and has been slowly re-releasing them on the Matrix Store and Steam under the ‘Strategic Command Classic’ brand.
Strategic Command WW2: Global Conflict is the latest to under-go the transfer process, and it’ll arrive this Thursday on February 8th on the Matrix Store and (if the last one is any indication) Steam.
To recap, here’s the official product description:
"Command the forces of 6 major and 58 different minor nations whose armies and navies include 20 different unique unit types, each with up to 30 different characteristics and stats. Over 200 different in-game events are now depicted as well as over 50 different decision events that guarantee a unique experience each time the game is played"
You can read an old Wargamer article on the game from 2010, written by someone named ‘Doug’. On the back-end it says this is ‘Part 2’ of the review, but we don’t appear to have Part 1 anymore. Regardless, we’re going to be working on a new, up-to-date look on the game and how it fares eight years later.
It’s worth noting that this is not a new game, but a re-release of the ‘Gold’ master version of the original release which comes with the Assault on Communism and the Assault on Democracy DLCs built-in.
If you already own the Battlefront version, Matrix has some information as to what you’re entitled to as far as this new release is concerned:
- If you had the basic version of SCC Global Conflict you will get 40% discount on the Matrix version.
- If you had the gold version you will get 60% off.
- If you had either of the DLCs (Assault on Communism or Democracy) you will get the game for free - you BF serial will work as a serial for the Matrix version.
