Armchair General

Fury Software and are happy to announce the release of the new Strategic Command 2 Weapons and Warfare Expansion Demo.  Weapons and Warfare is the first expansion pack to the award winning turn based WWII strategy game, Strategic Command 2 Blitzkrieg.

This demo includes two playable campaigns, Fall Weiss which depicts the German invasion of Poland and Wacht Am Rheim, better known as the Battle of the Bulge. Multiplayer modes are disabled in the demo but both campaigns are playable against the AI as either the Axis or Allied side.  Weapons and Warfare incorporates a huge list of new features frequently asked for by the fan community, including a bigger world map, new units, enhanced naval movement and combat rules, a deeper weather model, additional terrain types and resources, the simulation of roads and railways and a greatly extended editor with the ability to add in scripted Image and Sound events and much more.  


Weapons and Warfare is already available to Pre-Order and is scheduled for release before the end of this (October) month. More details can be found here:
