Epsom, UK – April 02, 2013  –  Slitherine ( www.slitherine.com) and the Lordz Games Studio ( www.thelordzgamesstudio.com) are proud to release a massive update for the much praised strategic wargame Commander: The Great War .

The v1.3.0 update contains numerous features. Doubtless the most prominent are the German, French and Italian language options added to the game. From now on, gamers from these countries will be able to play in their native language. Other improvements ensure balancing of the gameplay. The OpenGL requirement to play the game has been reduced from 1.5 to 1.4 (this means that even very old notebooks will be able to play the game causing less internal graphic card driver problems), the Naval war has been improved, and minor bugs have been fixed.

About  Commander:The Great War

 

Take Command and Secure Victory in the War to End All Wars!At the heart of the conflict, when men fought for every inch of land, only visionary leaders could make the choices that would lead their troops to victory. The remarkable sequence of events that inexorably led to the 'Great War' is written in our history books and pictured in our movies. 

Now a new turn-based strategy game captures this time of war with unprecedented realism, playability and accuracy. Developed by The Lordz Games Studio, Commander - The Great War is the latest release in the popular Commander series to bring the thrill, excitement and challenging decision-making of these difficult times to life. Gamers can enjoy a huge hex based campaign map that stretches from the USA in the west, Africa and Arabia to the south, Scandinavia to the north and the Urals to the east on a new engine that is more efficient and fully supports widescreen resolutions.

Commander – The Great War features a Grand Campaign covering the whole war from the invasion of Belgium on August 5, 1914 to the Armistice on the 11th of November 1918 in addition to 16 different unit types including Infantry, Cavalry, Armoured Cars and Tanks, Artillery, Railroad Guns and Armoured Trains and more!

For generals looking to test their mettle against other players, Slitherine’s revolutionary play by e-mail system will also bring a whole new level of excitement in Multiplayer battles while simultaneously offering near limitless replayability!
