Epsom, UK, September 16, 2013 - A new update for the award-winning strategy games Panzer Corps Wehrmacht, Afrika Korps and Allied Corps developed by Flashback Games Studio and the Lordz Games Studio
The v1.21 update fixes advanced options in GC - fixed the issue with too generous hero assignment in GC, disbanding 0-strength no longer gives prestige, kamikaze units (like V weapons) no longer get to reform. Also the Afrika Korps intro movie has been fixed - replays no longer display danger dots when moving airplanes, and a few more experimental options which were used in the Allies beta are now available via gamerules.pzdat file.
For a full list of changes, check out the dedicated Forum page .
To download the updates, players can run “Check for Update” via the game menu or download them directly from the game’s download page here . The patch is compatible with the original game, Afrika Korps and Allied Corps.

About Panzer Corps Afrika Korps
Welcome to the desert!
The year is 1941 and you will lead the German Afrika Korps, and its Axis allies, into Libya and Tunisia during the North African Campaign of World War II.
The reputation of the "Deutsches Afrikakorps" or "DAK" was synonymous with that of its first commander Erwin Rommel. Now it is up to you to overwhelm the Allied forces in North Africa, secure the Suez Canal and take hold of the oil-rich lands of the Arabian peninsula; maybe even invade the underbelly of the British Empire and threaten its crown jewel, India.
Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps is an expansion for existing Panzer Corps owners, and a full stand-alone for new players. With more than 20 new units, 24 new scenarios, new dynamic and varied scenarios and weather types, players will have their wits and tactics tested in this turn-based strategy game of the award-winning Panzer Corps series!
About Panzer Corps Allied Corps
The spiritual successor of Allied General is here!
The Allied Corps Campaign takes the award winning Panzer Corps game system and puts you in command of the Western Allies. Starting in the Western Desert and commanding the British 8th Army, the player takes on Italian forces with support from the German Afrika Korps. The war then moves on to Sicily and Italy where the Allies must fight their way north against stiff German resistance. In 1944 a new front will be opened by Operation Overlord, D-Day, and then push on to the Rhine and Berlin.
Panzer Corps: Allied Corps is an expansion for existing Panzer Corps owners, and a full stand-alone for new players. Allied Corps includes more than 25 new scenarios, over 50 new regular and special elite units, and modified version of existing units to cover the entire war in detail from the Western Allies perspective.
Please note: Allied Corps is a stand-alone game and does NOT require Panzer Corps to play
